Lioness Rampant
Lioness Rampant by Tamora Pierce

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

few thoughts in meantime all spoilers
That goddamned rat bastard. I knew it! Still hate her brother. And at least girl hate from second book is justified this book. Slut shaming. Guess George is best for her. Didn’t like the dragon. Least not as a match for her. Definitely don’t like happily ever after everyone gets perfect match bs.

Ok now that it’s later and I’m not on my phone and have internet with my computer, the full review.

Still though, spoiler warning.

I don’t like that Thom brought Roger back to life. I KNEW that was some kind of prophetic dream. Roger just seems like the kind of slimy sleezeball guy that I wouldn’t want within 10 feet of me had I the choice. I love that Alanna and Jon don’t ever really trust him despite what Thom says.

I like that despite Thom’s protests George contacts his old master to come help him. And that he eventually accepts the help.

I guess that I like George the best as a husband for Alanna since he’s not going to impose stupid restrictions and stuff on her. But I honestly like her better as a free agent free to sleep with whomever she wants and to have whatever romances she wants.

I don’t like Delia and the other girl slut shaming Alanna. That is one of those things that seriously bothers me in books. Especially since it’s a race and class thing.

I like that Alanna finally got her adventure and that she met the girls to bring back and eventually set Jon up for happiness.

All in all, I enjoyed reading the entire series one after another. So I’m glad that I waited until they were all out til reading them. I want to read the larger story as well (even though some of the books aren’t even written yet) so in the coming weeks I’ll be checking them out from the library so I can devour her works.
