Trickster's Choice por Tamora Pierce (2003)

  1. 40
    Crown Duel (Crown Duel / Court Duel) por Sherwood Smith (espertus)
    espertus: Both books are fantasies with strong-minded young female protagonists fighting tyranny in alliance with forces of nature. While both heroines come from noble families, they are very different: Crown Duel's Countess Meliara is a naive and untutored orphan, while Trickster's Alianne has been well schooled by her spymaster father and has lived in the shadow of her famous mother. I think the two sets of books (each of which was first published as two separate novels) might appeal to the same readers, although Court Duel is lighter and Tricksters more complex.… (más)

    Terrier por Tamora Pierce (Morteana)

    Talon of the Unnamed Goddess por C. R. Daems (0628perfect)
    0628perfect: Both of these books have strong female characters. However I think that Aly and Aisha have the same wit and cunning. Aly uses her wit and cunning to be a spy. However Aisha uses her wits to survive to become a Talon. If you enjoyed the spy intrigue of Trickster's choice then you will enjoy the shadow war tactics of the Talons.… (más)

    Dragonfly por Julia Golding (foggidawn)

    Aurelia por Anne Osterlund (Caramellunacy)
    Caramellunacy: Both stories involve young women in powerful positions who must constantly beware of the intrigues (and threats of danger) that surround them. Betrayal is close at hand and an outside spy is brought in to protect them. In Aurelia, it's the princess and her former classmate Robert. In Trickster's Choice - a contender for the position of heir against the established class and a foreigner brought to the country as a slave.… (más)

Tamora Pierce is one of my all time favorite authors who could only improve upon her writing skills by turning out her books a bit faster. This book like most of her books has wonderful characterization and story line. The world she creates is intriguing and everyone in it seems real and fascinating. Alanna has always been my favorite character of Tamora Pierce's so I am thrilled that her daughter got her own books. ( )

I hadn't realized how long it had been since I read this series - since I hadn't reviewed it here, at least since 2007. Much too long. I do love Aly - her frustration over not being allowed to do what she's able and interested in doing, the matter-of-fact way she uses her skills when she ends up needing them - she gets caught in a pirate raid and is taken as a slave, and coolly damages herself in fights so that she won't be chosen as a bed-warmer. For instance. She's exceedingly lucky in who ends up getting her...and then she finds out it's a god meddling (as so often happens in Tortall). She never really feels out of her depth - the job she has to do, and the tools and allies she has to do it with, are exactly what she needs and what she's been training for all her life (hmm - more meddling?). I find it very amusing (I can't now remember if it's in this book or the next) when she realizes what Kyprioth's wager with her actually was... This is half a story - well, it's a good story and has more or less an ending, but the second book is really necessary to complete the arc. One story in two books (and according to the author's afterword, the only reason it's not another four-book series is Harry Potter and the realization by publishers that people really will read big fat books).

Good book.

As expected from Pierce, a solid read worth revisiting. Aly is, in her own way, a fitting heir to both the Lioness and the King of Thieves. ( )

Protagonist is a bit of a sue. Very nice world-building. Alone, this would be merit "4 stars," but in the Tortallverse, this is just more of the same. Far too much fangirl-service, in my opinion. ( )

This book is about a girl named Aly who wants to be a spy. Her parents (Alanna and George from The Song of the Lioness Quartet) think this is too dangerous, so Aly runs away and ends up getting captured and taken into slavery. She plans her escape but then Kyprioth the Trickster God makes a deal with her: keep two princesses alive until the end of the summer and he will help her get home. I'm too lazy to tie my notes together into paragraph form, so here is a list of pros and cons.

What I liked:

-Compelling storyline (once you get past the first chapter, see below)
-Well thought out world
-Main character Aly has a strong voice. You feel like you know her really well.
-I like that the gods are really real. that the superstitions people have are based on fact for their world. that religious people can't be looked down upon because, well, the gods are real and we see them.
-Love the hilarious crow man (didn't buy him as a love interest, not because of the species thing, but because he doesn't come across as intelligent)
-Love Kyprioth the Trickster God.

What I didn't like:
-Really disliked the first chapter. I didn't like the hair turning blue premise which felt anachronistic to me in a weird way. But I see why the author did this. I also didn't like how the getting captured was glossed over. But I guess the book was long enough and this wasn't really the crux of the story.
-Aly is kind of annoying. She is good at everything. child-rearing, tracking, politics, controlling her emotions, controlling how she is perceived, good with knives, good at seeing magic, etc. etc. She doesn't take anything seriously enough and everything seems like a game to her. No one in the book can compete with her intellect, except for maybe Kyprioth and Aly's father. I do like that for once it's a girl who is smarter than everyone else unlike other fantasy novels I've read.
-I didn't like how the race issues were treated in the book. I liked that she had brown skinned people (the aka), but didn't like that it felt like real world issues with names changed to make it "fantasy" (the "luarin" treat the "raka" poorly because of the color of their skin). The author didn't bring anything new to the table with this, and because of this, it almost felt like she was reinforcing the stereotypes: even in a fantasy world where you can make up whatever you want, brown-skinned people are treated poorly. No one else in my critique group felt this way, so maybe I'm being overly sensitive when she at least had multi-cultural characters in the story. However, she didn't successfully make the raka feel like regular people to me, because she was constantly other-ing them by describing people as "raka", or "native" rather than as just men or women and then describing their appearance. I guess it makes sense since the main character was a luarin who'd never met Raka before, but, it still rubbed me the wrong way. (And there is an unfortunate scene where Aly rubs brown sap on her face to "blend in"…very un-PC as well as unrealistic)
-I also wish that the main character actually experienced real slavery and had some appreciation for how terrible it is so that she didn't feel like a white woman swooping in to save the poor brown people. Aly was overly lucky to get a nice family. All she had to do was get beaten up in the beginning! Now why on earth did no one else ever think of this? Instead, I think TP should have chosen one of the half-raka girls as a main character so that Aly's role wouldn't have felt so important to the whole thing and the "white person swooping in" thing wouldn't be an issue.

All in all, this is a worthwhile read for Tamora Pierce fans, and for writers who want to read a book with multicultural characters to make their own decisions about whether it was done successfully or not. ( )
