The Realms of the Gods by Tamora Pierce
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This YA novel is the last in a four part series about Daine and her magical gift with animals.
The whole series is well worth reading and lovers of magical fantasy will enjoy them. Tamora Pierce writes with good sense, creates likeable characters, has an exciting plot and her monsters and villains are shudderingly nasty. There's a bit of a moral too, but well hidden. If you are kind and thoughtful and work hard against prejudice and intolerance you will win out in the end. Readers learn this by watching Daine grow and change through the challenges she faces.
In this novel Daine and her magician tutor Numair Salmalin go to fight some extraordinary monsters called skinners and find themselves swept up, through the power of Diane's mother and father, into the realm of the gods. How they get out and back to help their King, Queen and country is a great story and one to enjoy.
