Alanna, the first adventure: song of the lioness, book 1 - Alanna: The First Adventure - Tamora Pierce



Alanna of Trebond is no ordinary girl: her dream is to become a knight. So she disguises herself as a boy and begins training at the palace of King Roald. Alanna quickly finds out that the road to knighthood is not an easy one, but her skills and stubbornness help her become friends with Prince Jonathan and his followers. At the same time, Alanna makes an enemy of the prince's uncle, the overly charming Duke Roger.

Here begins Alanna's first adventure, one that will lead not only to fulfillment of her dreams but to a magical destiny that will make her a legend.

I am almost ashamed to admit that I had never heard of Alanna’s saga, let alone Tamora Pierce, until earlier this year; I just saw on Goodreads that this first installment in The Song of the Lioness quartet was published in freaking 1983! How in the world have I gone this far through life without discovering Pierce’s work and her incredibly well-built world of Tortall?!

But the road to knighthood is not an easy one. As Alanna masters the skills necessary for battle, she must also learn to control her heart and to discern her enemies from her allies.

Filled with swords and sorcery, adventure and intrigue, good and evil, Alanna's first adventure begins - one that will lead to the fulfillment of her dreams and the magical destiny that will make her a legend in her land.

Alanna and her twin Thom are about to be sent off to the medieval-fantasy-equivalent of boarding school by their emotionally distant father. Tomboy Alanna is supposed to go learn magic and how to be ladylike, while bookworm Thom is supposed to train to become a knight. Lightbulb time: they decide to switch places! Alanna cuts her hair and rides off with the Trebond family's head soldier, Coram, while Thom goes with Maude, the healing-woman, to train in sorcery.

Bullied into going along with Alanna's ruse, Coram brings "Alan" to the capital city of Tortall, Corus. There, she reports to Duke Gareth of Naxen, who's kind of sponsoring her at court. Then Alanna meets the other boys in her age group, including Ralon (a bully), Gary (her first BFF), and Jonathan (the crown prince).

Now that our merry band of stock characters is established, we get down to the hard part: being a page. And boy is it hard. Alanna attends classes every morning and warrior training every afternoon. Since she's small, she ends up bruised and exhausted pretty much every day—but not too exhausted to befriend Sir Myles, an eccentric historian knight; and George Cooper, king of the thieves of the capital city. (Thief-king: good guy to have on your side.)
