Tamora Pierce is one of my absolute favorite authors, and I LOVE this series. Her heroines are always smart, strong, determined, and brave, without ever going over the top into "Mary Sue" overpowered territory. The main character of this series, Daine, is one of my favorites-- she's realistic, interesting, doesn't complain or whine, and she grows and adapts and conquers her fears throughout the series. In this book she returns to visit the wolf pack that took her in (she's an animal-speaker) so she can save them (and the rest of the forest and land) from ruin by the greedy (and, it turns out, traitorous) Lord and Lady who own the territory. She learns more about her powers and abilities and gains a lot of insight, while also overcoming her fear of going "mad" and forgetting she's human to once more run as a wolf. A great second book in a great series.
This entire series is a must read during ones formative years. It's my opinion that reading her entire body of work during the mental development of a teen could eliminate many inherent thoughts of bias, ego, and solve for the gaps of compassion that lead to the problems humanity faces today. And that is NOT overselling her work in the slightest.
Still In Mind
The main character isn't obnoxiously perfect, but she definitely has that "everyone she meets loves her" thing going on. And her powers just keep getting more amazing every chapter. The other characters in the book are all pretty much in a state of perpetual surprise when she unleashes yet another "magical ability that no one else could possibly do, ever!" On the other hand, it's fun to see a bunch of my old favorite characters, like Alanna the Lioness , her hubby and kids, and even good old Jonathan. I still love this world and the people within it, but Daine is just too....too much, I guess. There's never any feeling of real danger or struggle to overcome prejudice or, well, anything. Sure, something evil is stirring in the land, but we know from page one that Daina and her army of admiring powerful friends will overcome it. I just couldn't bring myself to worry too much over anyone, which sort of takes all the fun out of it.
In this novel, Daine, who is a shape-changer, is called by the pack that first sheltered her when her village was attacked by bandits. They have been driven out of their home range into new territory; now that land is under attack by humans who are ruining the land, tearing up the land and driving animals away. Traveling with her tutor, Numair, Daine and her companion travel to see what is going on, hoping to provide support. When they arrive, they find a world that is dying, and a kingdom that is preparing to attack Numair's home.
As Numair leaves Daine in order to inform the king, Daine is left with the pack, and must use her ability to become various animals as she begins a guerilla action against the enemy.
This book is the second in the series, and it is a wonderful addition. A great read with wonderful characters (both human and animal)! I would, however, recommend that readers go for the first book, Wild Magic, before reading this novel.
I love these wonderful books!! The Author writes such good stories and you never want to stop reading. The characters are great and you fall in love with each one as well as their descriptions. I can hardly wait to read the next book in this series.
I enjoyed this one a lot. Daine is growing into her powers and developing new abilities. She’s also growing and maturing as a person. I enjoyed animals and their various points of view and personalities. It was a fun easy read.
I have often wondered why as a young adult I continually come back to Tamora Pierce books to get lost in the fun of reading them. I have now come to realize that it really is the little things that matter. The details of living in Tortall for Daine, the mythology that works well within the series and doesn't have many loose ends, and the humorous little mini-episodes between characters, developing lasting relationships that will last until the end of the Kel series.

The detail in Pierce's writing and her plots are always fun. Though there's always a familiar overarching plot in each book in the Tortall series, it never becomes repetitive and there's always an unexpected aspect. In this book, it starts small, but as the series progress the different magics that appear that Daine must master and serve the King with are always fun to read.

My only problem with the Alanna and Daine quartets on the Kindle edition are that the OCR errors are in abundance, about a mistake every 2 or 3 pages for me while reading on small/medium text. It makes for a terrible and distracting reading experience.

If you are considering buying this book on the Kindle, don't. It's much better in paper back because of all the text problems.
I started reading this series when I was about 12, I am now 19 and have read this series about a dozen times. I have also read all of Tamora Pierce's books. She is my favorite author of all time. If you haven't read one of her books and you enjoy fantasy I would definetly suggest at least one of her books.

This is the second book in the Immortals series, you go back to Daine's hometown which she was run out of. You meet new friends like Tkaa, and many more. I must admit out of this series this is my least favorite, but still excellent. You get to see Daine expand in her magic, where she can go inside the animals minds. This book has a conflict and climax (which I won't spoil) and definetly an excellent book. I would recommend this book and all of Tamora Pierce's books!
