    Alanna: The First Adventure by Tamora Pierce (flemmily)
    flemmily: I would recommend any of Tamora Pierce's books, but Alanna is a great place to start. They're a little more middle-agey than Cashore's works.

Fire's story in Dell - introduces Leck. Best to read Bitterblue first. ( )

Amazing! It was the best 7 hours on a Saturday that I have had in a long time. Perfect way to spend a rainy day:) I loved it tremendously:) Graceling is still my favoite, but Ms. Cashore did a great job with her follow up. I hope she writes many more in the near future:) ( )

Almost didn't finish it. I just couldn't get into the heroine's big problem being she was just too beautiful. Slightly less melodrama in the romance, but it was still unappealing. Not sure that I want to read the last one. In fact, I just talked myself out of it. ( )

Cashore is that rare gifted writer who can give a fantasy novel real depth.

Epigraph
Dellian Lament:

"While I was looking the other way your fire went out

Left me with cinders to kick into dust

What a waste of the wonder you were

In my living fire I will keep your scorn and mine

In my living fire I will keep your heartache and mine

At the disgrace of a waste of a life"
Dedication
For my little sister Catherine, the (Corinthian) pillar of my heart
First words
Larch often thought that if it had not been for his newborn son, he never would have survived his wife Mikra's death.
