Publisher's Summary

Disguised as a boy, Alanna of Trebond becomes a squire, to none other than the prince of the realm. But Prince Jonathan is much more to Alanna; he is her ally, her best friend, and one of the few who knows that she's really a girl. Now it will take all of Alanna's awesome skill, strength, and growing magical powers to protect him from the mysterious evil sorcerer who is bent on his destruction, and hers! Here continues the story of Alanna, a young woman bound for glory who is willing to fight against enormous odds for what she believes in.

One of my favorites

Where does In the Hand of the Goddess rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I've always loved the original Alanna series, so this has to be in my top ten (I listen to a lot of audiobooks).

Who was your favorite character and why?

Gary or George. They're both very laid-back, but in different ways.

What does Trini Alvarado bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The accents. I love that Gary has a slightly British accent. It's so easy to imagine him that way.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Thom shows Alanna the secrets of her shield.

Any additional comments?

If you're considering this book, definitely give it a try. I thought it was even better than the first book.

A fun read

This book was engaging and I enjoyed listening to it on audible. An honorable, intelligent, and compassionate heroine outwitting a slimy deceitful immoral villain.
