The Song of the Lioness Quartet by Tamora Pierce
The Woman Who Rides Like a Man by Tamora Pierce - 288 pages
Lioness Rampant by Tamora Pierce - 353 pages
(The Song of the Lioness Quartet - books 2-4)
These books continue the adventures of Alanna, the girl who hides her identity to become a knight.
In the Hand of the Goddess tells her of years as a squire and her battle with Roger of Conte.
The Woman Who Rides Like a Man tells of her immediate adventures after receiving her knighthood and revealing her gender. She visits the desert people the Bazhir.
Lioness Rampant tells of her quest for the Dominion Jewel.
Overall, these books held up well over time. I enjoyed reading them again. I think the only things that kind of bothered me was that everybody seemed to take Alanna's deceit extremely well and immediately forgave her and that it seemed every guy she met fell in love with her.
