This third book in the Song of the Lioness quartet continues Alanna's saga as she strikes out alone and discovers herself anew.
A knight at last, Alanna of Trebond heads out to seek adventure in the desert of Tortall. Captured by desert tribesmen, she is forced to prove herself in a magical duel to the death. But her real challenge doesn't come until after she wins. As the first female shaman, Alanna must fight to change the ancient traditions of the stubborn desert tribes -- for their own sake and for the sake of all Tortall.
Trini Alvarado’s film credits include Meg in the most recent movie version of Little Women and Helen Ruth in The Babe. She has also appeared on television and the stage. Ms. Alvarado also narrated Alanna: The First Adventure and In the Hand of the Goddess for Listening Library.
"Lively and enjoyable, with a strong, vigorous heroine."--The Horn Book
"Alanna's world is a harsh one, but believable.... This fantasy provides food for introspection as well as flights of imagination in a magical kingdom." -- Kirkus
