As always, Tamora Pierce's writing is fun and entertaining. This was a nice change of pace from the Song of the Lioness and Protector of the Small Quartets. I love Daine's character, and I can't wait to see how she continues to grow. The other characters weren't as well-developed, so I'd love to see them become more well-rounded.

It's so nice to be back in the world of Tortall. I'll be honest, I was not Daine's biggest fan but she grew on me. This adventure was less interesting but I feel it was building up toward something more. It was fantastic to see Alanna, George, Jon, and their children. I am looking forward to how this story develops and delving into it further.

My best friend and I love Pierce's fantasy series ever since we were in middle school. These were the first female characters that I could really identify with. Strong role models!

Being over a decade years old, Wild Magic, has a completely different feel from the current popular YA novels. I like the straight forward and to-the-point writing style of the book. It's a strange feeling, almost like relief, finding your protagonist sound and ACT like a young teenager, yet still have the maturity that comes with living a hard life. The book is a wonderful start to The Immortals series and I can't to read the next one.

A great book, new magic, we are reunited with some characters from Tamora Pierce's previous series, Song of the Lioness. I didn't think the ending was very good though.
