This is the second story in the series and it's beautifully done. An engrossing page-turner that will leave you wanting to keep reading until you're done. Daine continues to be my favorite character, with her ability to interact with the animals and her strong attitude. The book has an important message in it as well, in that we, as humans, need to care for the planet around us. Over-development of wildlands and pollution hurts everyone in the long run. The research regarding wolves in this book is also well-done. It's nice to see a story where the author took the time to make readers aware that wolves don't eat people (like some stories like to do). There's also a nice acknowledement from the author to her sources.

I rather enjoyed the Alanna books, so I thought I'd ive these a try. I've read the first three and would like to read the last in the quartet just to see what happens, but they didn't keep me as interested as the Lioness Quartet did. Though they are still quite lovely books.

This is the second in Tamora Pierce's Series "The Immortals". I enjoyed this book, but it is directed towards a teen audience more then adults. However, the book is still very enjoyable and I would recommend it.

This book just reassured me that I love this series. And with the introduction of new immortals, it was a real exciting installment.

This second book in Tamora Pierce's THE IMMORTALS QUARTET centers around the further development of Daine's magical ability to communicate with animals.

The story begins when the wolf pack that lives near her former home village sends an envoy to ask for her assistance communicating with the humans who are ruining the lands where these wolves hunt. Daine, who owes a debt of gratitude to these wolves for having cared for her once she escaped her village, can't say no to their request, and along with her wizardly teacher, the powerful mage Numair Salmal'n, she journeys to Fief Dunlath, the area known by the wolves as Long Lake.

There, things are much worse than they initially seemed. Not only are the rulers of Fief Dunlath completely disregarding the impact of their actions upon the local wildlife, but Numair recognizes one of their guests as a Combat Mage from the Carthaki Empire, a country currently engaged in small skirmishes with Tortall. It soon becomes apparent that the Lady of the fief is engaged in double dealings with the Carthakis.

While Numair speeds back to warn King Jonathan of what is happening, Daine stays behind with her wolf-friends, gathering information and making plans for putting an end to the mining and garrisoning of soldiers that are destroying the natural habitats of more animals than just the wolves.

In a continuation of her skills from the previous book, Daine learns how to share her mind with animals, seeing through their eyes and sensing with their senses. She also discovers, much to her surprise, that any lengthy mental cohabitation could give her unexpected animal characteristics, like the ears of a mouse or the eyes of a hawk, that fade away only after she has detached herself from the animal's consciousness. With the help of a whole network of animal friends, Daine sketches out a plan of attack that will show the nobles of Fief Dunlath what happens when you mess with the wildlife.

Overall, I found this book quite enjoyable; the continued development of Daine's character was accomplished smoothly, and the characters newly introduced in this volume were fleshed out in their own rights. Particularly notable characters included, not just Numair, but also the baby dragon Stormsong, known as Kitten, and all of the wolves of the Long Lake pack.

If you liked the first book, you'll love the next one!

Daine is at it again! Commanding an animal army to defeat dueling mages. One for the King and one against. A huge battle ensues. This book has wonderful characters both human and animal, and amazing immortals both good and bad.

Tamora Pierce just gets better and better.
