Summary

Wildness is a kind of magic.

Discover a land of enchantment, legend and adventure in this third book of The Immortals series.

Daine Sarrasri’s power is growing, and her bond with animals is ever stronger.

Along with her mentor, Numair, and a delegation from Tortall, Daine is sent to the Emperor Mage of Carthak in hopes that she can help to smooth international relations between their lands before discord bubbles over into war - by helping the emperor’s ailing birds.

But Carthak’s emperor Ozorne is charmingly treacherous and Carthak itself built on the labour and suffering of slaves. No matter her choices, Daine finds herself at the centre of a terrible crossroads: she cannot turn away from animals in need, but to help this man could place those she loves in the greatest danger and make a mockery of all she values.

All the while, her magic is flourishing, leading her to answers and abilities beyond what she ever could have dreamed...but also to incredible danger.

Critic reviews

"Tamora Pierce didn’t just blaze a trail. Her heroines cut a swath through the fantasy world with wit, strength, and savvy. Pierce is the real lioness, and we’re all just running to keep pace." (Leigh Bardugo, number one New York Times best-selling author)

"Tamora Pierce creates epic worlds populated by girls and women of bravery, heart, and strength. Her work inspired a generation of writers and continues to inspire us." (Holly Black, number one New York Times best-selling author) 

"Tamora Pierce’s books shaped me not only as a young writer but also as a young woman. Her complex, unforgettable heroines and vibrant, intricate worlds blazed a trail for young adult fantasy - and I get to write what I love today because of the path she forged throughout her career. She is a pillar, an icon, and an inspiration." (Sarah J. Maas, number one New York Times best-selling author)

Love it just as much as I did when I was a kid

I remember borrowing this book over and over again from the library, I actually still have the copies I bought from America after scholastic stopped selling them and my library got rid of them. I literally have a whole shelf of Tamora Pierce in my room. Unfortunately I can’t read them these days so I have searched for them on here over and over again, Audible must be totally sick of me requesting them, and now they’re here and they are perfect!
Perfect narration, really easy to listen to and they totally stood the test of time. I think I may even love them more now than I did then lol

Brilliant!!!

Another great instalment in the series, loved this book. It was interesting seeing Numair's former home and learning more about how the immortals have returned to the realm. I can't wait for the next and final instalment in this series!
