Publisher's Summary

This third book in the Song of the Lioness quartet continues Alanna's saga as she strikes out alone and discovers herself anew. A knight at last, Alanna of Trebond heads out to seek adventure in the desert of Tortall. Captured by desert tribesmen, she is forced to prove herself in a magical duel to the death. But her real challenge doesn't come until after she wins. As the first female shaman, Alanna must fight to change the ancient traditions of the stubborn desert tribes, for their own sake and for the sake of all Tortall.


What the Critics Say

"Actress Trini Alvarado gives a performance consistent with her previous narrations in this series. She projects a youthful, but strong character for Alanna; this is her outstanding strength." (School Library Journal)

Amazing Narration

Would you consider the audio edition of The Woman Who Rides Like a Man to be better than the print version?

Yes, but only because of the amazing narration by Trini Alvarado. She did a wonderful job distinguishing each character.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Woman Who Rides Like a Man?

The first time the reader meets Kara, Ishak, and Kourrem. Trini's accents for them really added something to the story.

Have you listened to any of Trini Alvarado’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes. I believe this to be one of her better one performances.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

(I'm not very good at coming up with tag lines.) Perhaps, "Sometimes you have to forge ahead alone when everyone else is against you."

Any additional comments?

This is really good, in either audio book or book form, and I think the fourth book in the series is even better. If you enjoyed this one, definitely go check out "Lioness Rampant"!
