This is a great book for teenage girls. Loved this book. Age appropriate and the main charecter is a stong female figure.

A great fantasy adventure, Alanna is a girl who decides to masquerade as a boy to join the elite ranks of the King's Knights. But hiding her gender and controlling her magical abilities seems harder than she could have thought. Not to mention falling in love with another knight-in-training...

Great book! Fantasy and plot twists were excellent - I couldn't put this book down!

This story was very interesting and fast-paced. A little short (I didn't want it to end so soon!) but very enjoyable regardless. I this this would be a great read for fans of Harry Potter-like books or any stories that have that type of world.

A great beginning to an epic fantasy tale for anyone who ever wanted to live in a world of magic and mystery. I reread this book and its sequels at least once a year growing up. Tamora Pierce is a MUST read for any YA fantasy enthusiast.

As an adult reader the book remains a swift entertaining read with intricate plotting, but it is not as detailed or developed as some adult focused fantasy stories.
