  1. Hey, folks I just discovered that apparently I have given some very popular books single star ratings except I haven t How do I know I haven t Because I haven t read those books at all So before you go getting all hacked off at me for trashing your favorites, know that I ve written GoodReads to find out what s going on.I return to my regularly scheduled profile Though I would love to join groups, I m going to turn them all down I just don t have the time to take part, so please don t be offended if I don t join your group or accept an invitation I m not snooty I m just up to my eyeballs in work and appearances Also, don t be alarmed by the number of books I ve read When I get bored, I go through the different lists and rediscover books I ve read in the past It s a very evil way to use up time when I should be doing other things Obviously, I ve read a lot of books in 54 years I was born in South Connellsville, PA My mother wanted to name me Tamara but the nurse who filled out my birth certificate misspelled it as Tamora When I was 8 my family moved to California, where we lived for 6 years on both sides of the San Francisco peninsula.I started writing stories in 6th grade My interest in fantasy and science fiction began when I was introduced to The Lord of the Rings by J R R Tolkien and so I started to write the kind of books that I was reading After my parents divorced, my mother took my sisters and me back to Pennsylvania in 1969 There I went to Albert Gallatin Senior High for 2 years and Uniontown Area Senior High School for my senior year.After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania, I wrote the book that became The Song of the Lioness fantasy quartet I sold some articles and 2 short stories and wrote reviews for a martial arts movie magazine At last the first book of the quartet, Alanna The First Adventure was published by Atheneum Books in 1983.Tim Liebe, who became my Spouse Creature, and I lived in New York City with assorted cats and two parakeets from 1982 2006 In 2006 we moved to Syracuse, New York, where we live now with assorted cats, a number of squirrels, birds, raccoons, skunks, opossums, and woodchucks visiting our very small yard As of 2011, I have 27 novels in print, one short story collection, one comic book arc White Tiger A Hero s Compulsion co written with Tim, and a short story anthology co editing credit There s to come, including a companion book to the Tortall verse So stay tuned

  1. This wasn t supposed to be the next book I finished I was planning to get through Eulalia first, but I woke up one morning and rolled over and grabbed this one for no good reason except it s easier to read paperbacks than hardbacks when you re lying on your side because you don t want to get up, and also because your cat is sitting on your hip.Anyhow That was yesterday I think I read five chapters or so before breakfast And then I had to face the truth I m addicted to these books I crave them wh [...]

  2. 3 starsI ve been sitting on this one for a while It s a perfectly lovely ending for a great fantasy series it s just that I don t have too many strong feelings about it Whereas the ending of the Alanna series felt so relevant to my own life, this one doesn t resonate as much Daine s lessons are important ones embracing adulthood and independence and saying goodbye to the past They re just not lessons that I ve had to deal with recently I feel like I am too old for this book But luckily I have tw [...]

  3. Also read 29 December 2007, 18 July 2011 Daine and Numair get sucked out of Tortall and into the Divine Realms where they star in, in turn, a travelogue, a romance novel, and the quickest war novel ever 1 SERIOUSLY 2 All the main stuff happened off page The war, Daine s other suitors, sicknesses, etc Instead, we get 75% of a book about traveling across the Divine Realm and 25% about finishing a war too big for one book It s just sloppy, and uninteresting, and to use the phrase that I think most [...]

  4. First, I don t like the idea of taking two people key to the war away from the war entirely for most of the book Where of course they learn vital information blah blah blah Second, the pacing of this book is wacky, and they jump between places acquiring allies and enemies like it s necessary for the plot which it is instead of coherent, organic storytelling Third, and much importantly Daine is SIXTEEN Numair is THIRTY ONE I do not care, the slightest bit, about the age of consent in a nonexiste [...]

  5. Reviewed by Candace Cunard for TeensReadTooIt s been a year since wild mage Daine, now sixteen, helped topple Emperor Orzone of Carthak, but at that time his consciousness was trapped within the body of an immortal flesh eating bird known as a stormwing, and therefore his presence is still integral to the story In fact, Orzone has teamed up with Uusoae, the goddess of chaos, and together their power threatens to destroy everything Daine knows and loves.Daine may be young, but she and those aroun [...]

  6. I love Pierce, and even though none of her books will be better than the first series Alana The First Adventure about a girl who disguises herself as a boy to become a squire and eventually, a lady knight the first such in many hundreds of years in her world of Tortall I also really like this series Well, I liked the first book in the series enough to give it, say, a 4 The second book wasn t that great The third was a little better This was a nice low point to finish the series Lame o Also set i [...]

  7. Finally powered through this 2.5 stars probably accurately, but I m going to be less harsh on this book than some of you have been Mostly for old time s sake except, kind of hilarious how little of this book I remembered, aka 0% Although, parts of it kind of work for me True, it s a bit of a mess of a book.True, a lot of things are glossed over.Definitely true that Daine and Numair spend too high a percentage of this book in the Divine Realms.But I think I can sort of see where it s going I m n [...]

  8. Showdown between Mortals and the ImmortalsDaine and Numair have been doing their best, fighting against the forces of the now Immortal, Ozorne In a battle at the cusp of death, they are spirited away to the Realms of the Gods by Daine s mother, Sarra, and her father, both of whom are gods But Daine can think of only one thing fighting in the battle in Tortall and saving her friends Numair and Daine must then journey to the Land of the Dragons to return to Tortall and hopefully save their people. [...]

  9. This is the last if the series of four with Daine as central character I enjoyed this series in as much as it was a departure from the apprentice training quartets which I read out of order and back to back and which was a bit of overkill on the same theme after 8 in a row Of the entire series I enjoyed this book the lest It took place almost entirely in the Realm of the Gods and so it was quite different than the others There were a lot of dreams and a war neither of which I am a huge fan of re [...]

  10. The Realms of the Gods is one of my favorite books of all time to be sure However, I must say that one of the main reasons it holds its precarious position on my ever changing list is because it s the conclusion to a superb quartet of books If you are reading this book before reading the 3 stories that come before it, shame on you The magic of this story is that you already know the characters Pierce weaves a bond in between story and reader that is so strong by the 4th book that you look on the [...]

  11. Gah This series had to end on a bad note I had the same problem with this book as I did with Wolf Speaker Too much interactions with Daine s animals and the gods, and not enough human interactions, further bogged down by the weakest part of Book 1, the war Tamora Pierce has many strengths in her writing writing battle scenes and war scenes are not one of them I find them slow, bogged down, and I easily get confused and lost in the actiond not lost in a good way Very disappointed in the conclusio [...]

  12. A war is going on between Tortall, Carthak rebels, Scanran and the Copper Isles Diane and Numair are charged with fighting many of the immortals On one such occasion they are fighting some beings called The Skinner s, immortals that kill anything they touch About to be killed by these creatures, Diane and Numair are pulled through into the Divine Realms There Diane meets her parents But both need to find a way back to the human realm to fight the rebels.

  14. In this the final installment of the Immortals series Diane spends most of the book in the divine realms after being saved from certain death by her parents who are both gods Apparently the Greater Gods decided they didn t have enough gods in their panthenon so they decided to make Diane s mother Sarra into the Green Lady, a goddess of midwifery only known it seems by people in the village where she lived Wouldn t that make a great High School reunion story, Uh, yeah, so you know I dated the qua [...]

  15. Daine is an overpowered character, we all know that The daughter of a God with the power to speak and change to a lesser extent into animals Being overpowered, her tales only remain interesting based upon the cast of characters usually animals that she befriends and her enemies.Here is where The Realms of the Gods nearly makes a fatal mistake It ejects her animal friends for gods and beings with near omniscience Nothing is left to guess work because her friends seem to know everything except Num [...]

  16. OH MY GOD When I read Immortals the first time around, I remember loving it, but not LOVING it the same way I did Protector of the Small Reading it again almost 10 years later, all I can say is WOW SO GOOD I literally don t remember the last time I ve obsessed over a book this much I absolutely loved Song of the Lioness, but there s just something different about Immortals The writing, the plot, the character development s just so much detailed and well thought out and so realistic I remember a [...]

  17. So not only do we have some typical fantasy problems, like overpowered characters who can do no wrong and are filled with truth, love and virtue, there s misused words, terrible description, plot holes, and then SPOILER AND TRIGGER WARNING, a thirty year old teacher macking on and making out with his sixteen year old student BY THE WAY THEY VE BEEN IN LOOOOOVE SINCE SHE WAS THIRTEEN There s about one page of desultory, pro forma oh huh this might be fucked up discussion, and then EVERYTHING IS A [...]

  18. There s nothing I can say that will adequately express how I feel about these books and I m not even going to try Besides, the fact that I read them all repeatedly I quit counting after the 10th time is the highest form of praise I can give anyway Daine, Numair, and the others are friends as dear to me as any in this world.

  19. Daine was such a wonderful character and I adored her connection with the animals and how all her friends became important one way or the other throughout the series The world building was immersive and I was so fascinated by the Realms of the Gods Clearly, I need Tamora Pierce

  20. Nooooo, don t WANT it to be over Want moar Daine I have a lot of mixed thoughts about this final volume, but I enjoyed the whole series so much I know I ll be going back to read it all again before too long As Leaf would say, Funfunfun.Spoilery thoughts view spoiler Not sure how I feel about the romance between Daine and Numair I mean, on the one hand, it s pretty hott On the other hand, he s TWICE her age and that s a little weird I like that they leave it somewhat ambiguous, though There s sti [...]

  21. WTF Tamora Pierce what the heck were you thinking with this one I think this is my least favorite book Pierce has every written and raises a few concerns The most obvious issue that I and many others here have is the whole Numair and Daine relationship This was downright uncomfortable to read at times He is practically TWICE HER AGE and they engage in a very physical, sensuous relationship And further it is presented as a romantic star crossed relationship instead of a vastly inappropriate abuse [...]

  22. The book was great overall, but I think that maybe a trip to the land of the gods should have taken place in the third book, though it makes since that it doesn t It s just that with the battle brewing, it would have been interesting to actually be on earth for it Plus, they never told us what people thought of their dissapearance How long were they gone for anyway A week Longer Some details also didn t make sense, like how did Chaos find Ozorne Also, the fact that Tortall had a sure win made i [...]

  23. This was incredible and so different from the first three I loved learning about the different realms and seeing the gods in their elements Daine is just so great always learning but self assured, looking out for her friends two and four legged alike , and just generally being super awesome And I loved the darkings Every book adds some new adorable creature The last chapter made me well up with emotion and HELLOOOOOOOO SHIP HELLO HI I VE BEEN WAITING And it was worth it The ending gave me a Flyn [...]

  24. This was the first of Pierce s work that I ve stopped reading near the end and just skipped through the rest It was so bad Honestly, I was thinking in my head most of the time blah,blah,blah because that s what it was It contained useless plot lines and a waste of a perfectly good herione Don t even get me started on the off hand romance that was just sprung on us Spoiler I mean a make out session right after dealing with giant spider gods REALLY Gross And then to learn Daine had already kissed [...]

  25. A good wrap up to the series and a fair amount violent and sexy than I remembered, this is probably my least favorite of Pierce s books I still liked it, but I don t have the same connection to the characters that I do with some of the other series and the age difference with Daine and Numair ends up playing just a little icky because she s still so young I know 16 in a medieval renaissance world isn t that young, but it still feels young to me plus they had the student teacher thing going for [...]

  26. This was an odd ending to the series I was expecting a final battle on Earth and ended up getting a journey home from the land of the gods It was sort of frustrating, although not necessarily in a bad way I am glad to have met Daine s parents.Spoilers belowIt is hard for me to review this book without talking about Numair s and Daine s romance It was completely inappropriate and I couldn t get past that he was her mentor and, for much of the series, almost a father figure to her Perhaps I would [...]

  27. This and my other reviews can be found at amethystbookwyrm Daine and Numair are transported to the realm of the gods during a dire battle, only for Daine to realise the secrets of her parentage However, even though she is happy to find her family, Numair and Daine both realise that they have to return to their world to help their friends in their battle against Ozorne Daine and Numair with help from friends take a dangerous journey to leave the realm This is one of the best YA fantasy I have rea [...]

  28. Our poor innocent Daine How could such a tragedy befall her she fell in love with a man about 40 years old when she s 16 am i the only one that finds this wrong in the slightest I ve found a common theme in Pierce s go for a while being the strong independent female you go girls then they find a possible love around there age when visiting as far away land leave him because a long distance relationship just doesn t work then in the last book she finds that she loves the person she has been worki [...]

  29. When I was reading these for the first time, I was completely heartbroken to be finishing Daine s story, given that I d loved it so much That sad fact was somewhat compensated for by how much I loved and continue to love Daine and Numair s relationship I also secretly loved the Darkings as well.As I was re reading this book, I was a little embarrassed to realize how poorly I remembered what occurred during this installment of the Immortals I absolutely enjoyed it, and I especially loved the disc [...]
