In the Hand of the Goddess is by far the best book that I have ever read. It shows all of the quality that a book should have. Alanna is a very good heroin because she is female, smart, brave, courageous, etc. This book changed my reading habits because once I picked this book up, I couldn't stop reading at all. Alanna also shows the compassion that most PEOPLE lack.Alanna also shows that girls can do anything that boys can do, only that girls can do it better. I would like to personally thank Mrs.T amora Pierce for all of her amazing books.

I am an avid reader of Tamora Pierces books, and I love them all, but I can honestly claim that this one is the best. Full of romance, adventure, and spirited, exciting characters, "In The Hand Of The Goddess" is an amazing novel that leaves the reader crazy for more. Once I had read it three times, I rushed to my school library and almost choked the librarian when she told me that the library didn't have the next book. Pierce does an exellent job of making Alanna tough and brave while still allowing room for a side of her that can be identified with: a side that is very much a young, developing girl who is not entirely secure. Watching Alanna grow from that confused girl into a herotic young woman is a joy, as is sharing in her success. By the end of the book, it is as if the reader has been truly a part of her life.

I believe this to be a brillant book, to me it is the best in the series. I love it so much because it is the most action packed of all the books that I have read from this quartet, plus is has all my favourite characters and in the situation I like them to be in: Alanna, Jonathan, Gary, Myles. I also really enjoy the comments that her cat makes, they are quite funny. I would highly recomend this book to anyone who likes a change from the meer "a knight is a man".
