Trickster's Choice

Trickster’s Choice by Tamora Pierce (0375814663)
A new book from one of my favorite YA fantasy authors, who also wrote the Circle of Magic and The Lioness cycles. This book starts a new trilogy featuring Aly, the daughter of Alanna the Lioness. Aly wants to be a spy, she has learned about spying from her father, but both her mother and father see it as too dangerous a task for a teenage girl. Aly travels to visit family friends and is taken by slavers to another country where she is caught up in plots by a trickster god and finds uses for her spying abilities.
Pierce is popular with both boys and girls. Her fantasies are always cleanly written. Kids will enjoy this new character and a change from mages and knights. One to hand to teens who enjoy battles, magic and fantasies.
