From Tamora Pierce, the final book in the Song of the Lioness Quartet, honored with the Margaret A. Edwards Award.

Having achieved her dream of becoming the first female knight errant, Alanna of Trebond is not sure what to do next. She has triumphed in countless bloody battles, and her adventures are already legendary. Perhaps being a knight errant is not all that Alanna needs…but Alanna must push her uncertainty aside when she is challenged with the impossible. She must recover the Dominion Jewel, a legendary gem with enormous power for good—but only in the right hands. And she must work fast. Tortall is in great danger, and Alanna's arch-enemy, Duke Roger, is back—and more powerful than ever. In this final book of the Song of the Lioness quartet, Alanna discovers through fierce combat and ceaseless searching that she indeed has a future worthy of her mythic past—both as a warrior and as a woman.

In my opinion she is one of the bravest girls in any of the books I've read.When I first started reading it I thought Jonathan had a suspicion the " Alan " had a strange air to " him " but then I figured out that Jonathan was clueless.

(Jan 27, 2002) Tamora Pierce is by far the most imaginative and superb writer I have ever heard of (and this a huge compliment since I've read plenty of books!) Alanna is the most ingenious of her creations!
