Lioness Rampant: Tamora Pierce. Re-read. I really don’t “get” Alanna’s relationship with Liam. He’s kind of a huge jackass, he’s terrified of her magic… and she sleeps with him anyway. Oh well. Thayet is awesome. The Roof of the World is cool. And the whole climax of the book really just gets me every time. I still tear up when Josianne kills Faithful.
