Summary

Wildness is a kind of magic.

Discover a land of enchantment, legend and adventure in this first book of The Immortals series, featuring an updated cover - perfect for longtime fans and newcomers alike.

Daine has always had a special connection with animals, but only when she’s forced to leave home does she realise it’s more than a knack...it’s magic. With this wild magic, not only can Daine speak to animals, but she can also make them obey her. Daine takes a job handling horses for the Queen’s Riders, where she meets the master mage Numair and becomes his apprentice.

Under Numair’s guidance, Daine explores the scope of her magic. But she encounters other beings, too, who are not so gentle. These terrifying creatures, called Immortals, have been imprisoned in the Divine Realms for the past 400 years - but now someone has broken the barrier. And it’s up to Daine and her friends to defend their world from an Immortal attack.

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)

Relived an old childhood favourite

I love the work of Tamora Pierce and this book was the one to welcome me in. I still read it to this day (15 years later). I do wish that the audio performance was a little better. It was hard to tell the difference between characters and the pace just wasn't there. Pierce's bring this world to life beautifully with ink and paper, but this performance falls short of capturing it.

Brilliant!!

I really enjoyed this book, it's been a while since I read it and it's just as brilliant as the first time I read it! I love Daine and the rest of her friends, I look forward to reading the rest of the books in the quartet next!
