Publisher's Summary

The native people of the Copper Isles, the raka, know that the ancient prophecy handed down by their trickster god is on the brink of coming to pass. But what they don't know is that all their hopes rest on the slender shoulders of Aly Homewood, formerly Alianne of Pirate's Swoop.From daughter of the powerful to slave in a foreign land, Aly is also a pivotal leader in the underground movement to put a new queen on the throne. Witty, intelligent, and a talented spy, Aly is used to staying two steps ahead of the action. But with new adversaries, and a faltering romance, Aly is blind to the threat that lurks right under her nose. What will happen if the queen-to-be is lost?In this dramatic sequel to Trickster's Choice, Tamora Pierce examines the powers of loyalty, family, and friendship in the face of adversity. And in doing so, she gives us the stories of three unforgettable young women discovering who they are and who they want to become.


What the Critics Say

"Pierce deftly weaves an unforgettable story....The plot sweeps readers along in a whirlwind of court intrigue, deception, murder, and romance. The humor is wicked, and the plot twists will keep the pages turning to the supremely satisfying end." (School Library Journal)

All of T. Pierce's books are marvelous! I've read all of her Trickter books, Alanna books, and Immortals books. I can't say which one is the best! Every series and book is connected to every other boom she has written, from Alanna's First Adventure to Trickster's Queen. If you don't res them all,, you won't understand themm entirely. It's like onw huge novel on fictional history! I love reading something connected to the other books, it's like finding the crucial puzzle piece after you had long put together the rest of the puzzle. They are all incredible, and a must read or listen! I hope there will be more novels by Pierce, because I feel that the story isn't finished yet. I need to find the other books from the Terrier.

Any additional comments?

Trickster's Choice & Trickster's Queen are at the 5star multi listen pinnacle of Tamora Pierce's EXCELLENT writing! These YA books are adult worthy audio that my daughter & I have been re-listening to for more than a decade. We finally got the audible files so she has them @ college too. Almost everything thing Tamora writes is solid 5 stars and her audio versions are reliably good. These two books [not too immature, too mature or too dark, w/ humor, drama, & love] are perennial favorites.
