The secrets of Tortall are revealed....
As Tortall's spymaster, George Cooper has sensitive documents from all corners of the realm. When Alanna sends him a surprising letter, he cleans out his office and discovers letters from when King Jonathan and Queen Thayet first ascended the throne, notes on creating the Shadow Service of spies, threat-level profiles on favorite characters, Daine's notes on immortals, as well as family papers, such as Aly's first report as a young spy and Neal's lessons with the Lioness. This rich guide also includes the first official timeline of Tortallan events from when it became a sovereign nation to the year Aly gives birth to triplets. Part history, part spy training manual, and entirely fascinating, this beautiful guide is ideal for anyone who loves Alanna, King Jonathan, Queen Thayet, Kel, Neal, Aly, Thom, Daine, Numair, and the unforgettable world of Tortall!

Where does Tortall: A Spy's Guide rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This book needs to be read, not listened to. The narrator and actors are all great, but his is a book you need to be able to go back through to cross reference dates and people.
What other book might you compare Tortall: A Spy's Guide to and why?
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
It is basically a group of short stories that go through 50 years of time. It was interesting to listen to the stories, but I would prefer being about to jump back and forth between stories (and the books from that time frame).
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There is a story where George's daughter saves his life.
Any additional comments?
I love Tamora Pierce and all her books. I have read and/or listened to everyone one. I have purchased this book in print because I will want to reference things when re-reading the books.

An Interesting Perspective
I enjoyed hearing the intricate weaving of the stories of Tortall. The only thing I didn't like were (as I perceived them) occasional mispronunciations of names; despite that it was still worth listening to.
