Together, these three friends forge a bond that will one day shape kingdoms. And as Ozorne gets closer to the throne and Varice gets closer to Arram’s heart, Arram begins to realize that one day soon he will have to decide where his loyalties truly lie.

In the Numair Chronicles, readers will be rewarded with the never-before-told story of how Numair Salmalín came to Tortall. Newcomers will discover an unforgettable fantasy adventure where a kingdom’s future rests on the shoulders of a talented young man with a knack for making vicious enemies.

    Pretty pretty cover. I know this is a well loved author so it’s probably time I pick up something by her and give it a go!

    This book sounds pretty fabulous! I’ve yet to read anything by Tamora Pierce, but I’ve heard nothing but good things about her books, so I definitely need to rectify that soon. Fingers crossed we both enjoy them! 😉
