was located very conveniently for Alanna s purposes This entire book was damned convenient for her I thought the first book was alright and picked this up because the entirety of tumblr was shitting themselves over the feminist shit in this book Let me tell you, there was some shit in this And were they feminist Alanna doesn t want love but because the author deemed it must happen, she s aged up

feminist Alanna doesn t want love but because the author deemed it must happen, she s aged up 6 years in only a few chapters And the creeps trickle in.Alanna has 2 love interests Jon the prince who s sleeping with several women at court and the King of Thieves, George At first I was all F Yeah Princes but then this happenedIt s a charm to keep me from having children, she stammered Mistress Cooper gave it to me a a long time ago Jon chuckled Have you ever tried it out he asked What s that supposed to mean she asked gruffly This Swiftly he kissed her again and again Alanna felt giddy and was grateful that his tight hold kept her from falling She was scared She suddenly realized she wanted to be the one in his bed tonight.ok, that s cool, BUT Jonathan stopped kissing her, only to start unlacing her bodice Alanna shoved him away, teffired No she gasped, grabbing her laces I was crazy to think Johanathan, please So he stops and throws this line You re fighting what has to be, he said, and you know it as well as I do But because the author just wanted the romance to happen, Alanna gives in to his pestering and sleeps with him WTF Such feminism Much girl power Wow.Then we have George, who is much better than Jon, but also has creepy moments of his own, thus making him another creeper and another reason to be disappointed These include forcing a kiss on her when she can t resist him and drugging her because she needs to rest.Gee, thanks for considering Alanna s feelings on the matter.These weren t even the tip of the iceberg You wondered what would happen if her secret of being a woman got out Ha It s utterly ridiculous.You wondered what the final showdown with Roger would be like LOL even the most powerful sorcerer in the world is no match for Alanna Who s only 16.Just no.While I admire Pierce s desire to write a series featuring a powerful heroine for women, I can t say that the events of this book supported her views I admire what she wanted to write, but what this book became was not that My goodness, my memory is atrocious I thought that the ending of this book was supposed to be the ending of the final book in the quartet, so now I will be continuing on with the series going in totally blind This was so enjoyable, I love these books so much The nostalgia is real I do think that they could have been fleshed out a little bit though There is a bit of glossing over and jumping forward in time in big leaps, so things moved very fast in pace I wish I had the chance to slow down a My goodness, my memory is atrocious I thought that the

much The nostalgia is real I do think that they could have been fleshed out a little bit though There is a bit of glossing over and jumping forward in time in big leaps, so things moved very fast in pace I wish I had the chance to slow down and savour it.Other than that, loved the action, the characters, the world I still enjoyed reading this series, but severalproblems stood outwith this book First off important events kept being dropped casually into the conversation or mentioned in passing and that was that I was very taken aback when it was said that Alanna s father died last month , and that was about it There were several other instances as well that this happened but I can t remember right now Also time seems to be passing too quickly At some point I had to struggle to keep up an I still enjoyed reading this series, but severalproblems stood outwith this book First off important events kept being dropped casually into the conversation or mentioned in passing and that was that I was very taken aback when it was said that Alanna s father died last month , and that was about it There were several other instances as well that this happened but I can t remember right now Also time seems to be passing too quickly At some point I had to struggle to keep up and remember that all these happened within long periods of time between each other Then the romance I appreciate that it s not overdramatized or anything, but I also felt like it just happened Like, in the last book there was no mention of it at all, and then suddenly in the first chapter of this book the goddess declared that George was in love with Alanna That was jarring So was when people suddenly started sleeping with each other without talking much about it at all I was confused Some things that have had a huge build up such as the Ordeal ended up being too simple I ve noticed this pattern with pretty much all the climaxes in the series they never even lastthan a few pages I mean, I hate reading about fighting battles myself, but this is a book that s supposed to be all about it, right Another gripe I have is that how Alanna seems to be a foolproof radar when it came to evil people From the moment she saw Roger, she had already hated him inexplicably Same with Delia, who turned out to be his pawn I guess I really don t like it when evil people are so obviously portrayed to be evil from the start There s no surprise, no twist, nothing Wouldn t it have beenexciting if he seemed to be a good guy and then surprised by everyone by turning out not to be a good guy after all Unreasonably good instincts in a hero is something I ve always disliked.I don t know, maybe I m just being picky Or maybe this was meant for people much younger than me, hence the simplicity of the plot and everything I could understand that, I guess SPOILERS AHEAD I don t want to fall in love I just want to be a warrior maiden HAHAHAH YEAH RIGHT,GREAT JOKE ALANNA Sooothis book was basically
