Publisher Description

Aly’s adventure continues. . . . No longer a slave, Alanna’s daughter is now spying as part of an underground rebellion against the colonial rulers of the Copper Isles. The people in the rebellion believe that a prophecy in which a new queen will rise up to take the throne is about to be realized. Aly is busy keeping the potential teenage queen and her younger siblings safe, while also keeping her in the dark about her future. But Aly, who is usually adept at anticipating danger and changes, is in for a few nasty surprises. New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tamora Pierce captured the imagination of readers 20 years ago with Alanna: The First Adventure. As of August 2003, she has written 21 books including three completed quartets: The Song of the Lioness, The Immortals, and The Protector of the Small, set in the fantasy realm of Tortall. She has also written the Circle of Magic and The Circle Opens quartets. The author lives in New York, NY.

    " Not as good as the Alanna series, but still a good read. "

    " This is a good example of the potential for political intrigue in fantasy novels. Imagine you were staging a grass-roots monarchical revolution, and had to worry about networks of spies, magical bugs, supernatural beings, and the favor of a Trickster god. This novel lets you imagine such, and figure that its heroine would probably be better than you in most accounts. This is a great book, and the series a must read for any intersted in intelligent fantasy. "

    " Might have been better had I read the first one, but a good teens book. Unsure if I'd let my pre-teen read it though, due to some older topics in there. "

    " The Trickster books are not as action packed as the other Tortall books, involving more spying and plotting and other subtleties needed for political plays at court. However, I still enjoyed both books, and found this one to have a satisfying ending to the story. "

    " This actually bumped up to my "favorite Tamora Pierce novel" when it came out, and I think a lot of it had to do with how much of a break the duology was from what Pierce normally does. Of course, now that the Beka Cooper series is out...I think that might dethrone Aliane from my favorite. Either way, this is an excellent series and reminds me of just how great Pierce can be. And, unlike a lot of authors that write for children and teens, she's regularly coming up with new ideas rather than recycling the same plot and characters. "

    " Go Nawat!! This book was my favorite. It showed a complex system, and people that were considered to be slaves had the power and the leader to take it down. Brilliant. "

    " A worthy follow-up to "Trickster's Choice." The events set in motion in the first novel come to a head here, and I loved getting to see Aly, Nawat, and Dove come into their own in this book. Points for a large cast of awesome ladies, women excercising agency, snappy writing, and general fantasy fun. "

    " I was initially annoyed by this book until I realized it was the second book in a series, and I had not read the first. I'm sure there was a lot that I missed, but the second book seemed to have its own thing going on and by the end, I really enjoyed it. "

    " Spotted this book's "twist" in the first book of the duology.I love getting more info on other countries in the Tortallverse. I really do! But I feel like Alianne's story would and should have been a one-book thing. Also, yay for not another knight story. "

    " Seeing how Trickster's Choice was the very first book I'd read by Tamora Pierce, Trickster's Queen consequently became the second. Both books pretty much captivated me, and I might even venture to say that this one beat TC just a bit. A really tiny bit. "
