review In the Hand of the Goddess 103 R who is bent on his destruction and hersHere continues the story of Alanna a young woman bound for glory who is willing to fight against enormous odds for what she believes i. What happenedI ve read several of Tamora Pierce s books but had not read the Song of the Lioness uartet and thought it time I start I enjoyed the first book Alanna The First Adventure I liked Alan nee Alanna in her single minded determinedness and her unawareness of self and the effect she had on others I liked the supporting characters It was light pleasant and fun so I was eager to read this second book I expected Alan to grow up and have to deal with identity issues romantic issues and other problems that come with becoming a young adult I expected the book to be less geared to 8 12 year olds as the first had been and written with teenagers in mind These are the expectations I had before reading the boook I was terribly disappointed view spoilerWhile Alan does grow up and does have to deal with all the problems I had expected and while the book is not aimed at the 8 12 year old setthough it s also not aimed at anyone over the age of 16 I felt the story to be tiresome and riddled with cliche It was like reading a long volumed shojo manga without the pictures in that the heroine is now a cute determined girl whose existence is based on a lie but those who know the truth love her even because of her lie Although she has very little sense of self and almost no discernable personality she has a strong sense of right and duty and this is how she comes to all her decisions She is also chosen of the Goddess who even comes to visit the young heroine bestowing gifts aplenty She manages to snare the love of the two most eligible bachelors in the realm and has to choose between the two In choosing it s not so much that she makes an informed decision based on her feelings as she defaults to the one who is available falling into his bed out of convenience and because everyone keeps telling her she needs to learn to love What about her makes her so endearing to all these men and one woman Further everything she puts her hand to leads to success She is instrumental in winning wars she thwarts attempts made on her life without realizing they were attempts on her life She is kidnapped but rescued before anything horrible can happen And all the inconsistencies throughout the book are wrapped up tidily at the end everyone was acting like an imbecile because there was a spell cast over them all though there were moments of lucidity when one character or another would have suspicions I loved Alan s determination and need to prove herself in the first book when she was just out of childhood and was developing emotionally and physically However in this volume it comes across as lack of awareness and the inability to react to her environment in a believable way Instead she relies mostly on luck her steadfast friends the Goddess and the writer s love of keeping her character safe I was even disappointed with the continuing villain who is supposedly the most powerful sorcerer around He s slowly killing the ueen he has everyone under his control he makes lame attempts on Alan s and Jonathan s lives and then he dies easily So much for powerful sorcery hide spoiler The Stench read several of Tamora Pierce s books but had not The Life Tree Poems

review In the Hand of the Goddess 103 F the few who knows that she's really a girl Now it will take all of Alanna's awesome skill strength and growing magical powers to protect him from the mysterious evil sorcere. I was looking at the cover of my library copy of this book before I started it and saw that on my edition Alanna is pictured with a black cat on her shoulder Remembering how delightfully full of wish fulfillment the first book was I thought to myself Oh she gets a cat in this one I bet it s a magic cat I bet it talks I was joking But I was totally right Alanna not only acuires a talking cat who also has purple eyes natch a deity swoops down to personally give Alanna a magic necklace At this point girlfriend is getting really weighted down with magical swag She s going to have to start carrying trunks around with her and I love it The first book in the series moved uickly In the Hand of the Goddess moves even faster flying right through the rest of Alanna s training and ending soon after she graduates This means that sometimes an entire year takes up only a few chapters and the lengthy timeline means that the book can sometimes feel like just a string of separate events instead of a cohesive story Halfway through the book we get introduced to a neighboring country Tusaine and before we can even catch our breath Alanna and her friends are being moved to the front lines because suddenly there s a war happening I expected the war to take up a significant chunk of the story because apparently I haven t grasped how this works yet but instead the entire Tusaine conflict lasts about fifty pages before it s wrapped up and never really mentioned again I had to finish the book and think back over the entire plot before I realized that the central story of this book is Alanna s continued struggle with Duke Roger the evil sorcerer from Book One I m happy to report that by the end Duke Roger view spoileris out of the picture Alanna kills him in a trial by combat which also accomplishes the job of revealing her gender to everyone which saves us some time so he at least doesn t have to become a recurring villain who wears out his welcome hide spoiler
