Song of the Lioness Quartet (Boxed Set): Alanna; In the Hand of the Goddess; The Woman Who Rides Like a Man; Lioness Rampant
A girl disguises herself as a boy to train as a knight and changes her destiny in Tamora Pierce’s Margaret A. Edwards Award–winning young adult series—all four books now available with a new look in this paperback boxed set!
Fearless, bold, athletic, magical. Young Alanna of Trebond is all these things, and more than anything else, she has always craved the adventure and daring allowed only to boys. So she and her twin brother, Thom, switch places: Thom heads for the convent to become a sorcerer, and Alanna—pretending to be a boy—goes to the castle of King Roald to begin her journey to knighthood.
Her choice leads to more dangerous exploits and intrigue than she could have ever imagined as she befriends royalty, travels the kingdom, and battles evil.
This epic paperback boxed set includes:
