The Realms of the Gods
The Realms of the Gods - Tamora Pierce Enjoyed this book a lot. Pierces strength is in storytelling and character development.

The Realms of the Gods
The Realms of the Gods - Tamora Pierce Generally a good book. Was disturbed by the relationship between a 16 and 30 yr old though. Didn't bother me the first time I read it (when I must have been about 12) but now more of an issue to my brain.

The Realms of the Gods - Tamora Pierce

I enjoyed this book a lot when I first picked it up. The writing was strong and compelling as were the characters. I read nearly half of it in a day. But when Diane and Numair became more than friends, there was a noticeable decline in just about everything. And Numair is WAY older than Diane. And just because they didn't have sex (that I know of) doesn't mean it's ok or a good idea for them to be together.

 

When they returned to Tortall, most of the enemy had been driven out and the only remaining trouble was in one port city. I found this to be very disappointing and anti-climatic. And when there was a battle, it was told matter-of-factly up until Rikash's death. And the cherry on this poorly executed scene was Diane screaming "Nooooooo!"

 

Save yourself and skip this book. It's not critical to the others.

The Realms of the Gods (Immortals (Quality))
The Realms of the Gods - Tamora Pierce Daine and this series aren't my favorite among Pierce's characters or books. I think because I find the environmentalist themes unsympathetic and preachy. Pierce's imagination never flags though, and that does make all her books enjoyable and in this one I especially love how she gives another dimension to the Stormwings in this conclusion to the series, and the Darklings are adorable. And if Daine isn't my favorite Pierce heroine, well, I think Daine and Numair are my favorite Pierce couple, and Numair my favorite male Pierce character. Some I'm sure will decry the age difference (she's a teen and he's a 30-something), but I think they play well off each other, and I liked how their relationship grew over the four books, here finally building to romance.
