Description

Wildness is a kind of magic


Discover a land of enchantment, legend, and adventure in this first book of The Immortals series, featuring an updated cover - perfect for longtime fans and newcomers alike.


Daine has always had a special connection with animals, but only when she's forced to leave home does she realize it's more than a knack . . . it's magic. With this wild magic, not only can Daine speak to animals, but she can also make them obey her. Daine takes a job handling horses for the Queen's Riders, where she meets the master mage Numair and becomes his apprentice.


Under Numair's guidance, Daine explores the scope of her magic. But she encounters other beings, too, who are not so gentle. These terrifying creatures, called Immortals, have been imprisoned in the Divine Realms for the past four hundred years - but now someone has broken the barrier. And it's up to Daine and her friends to defend their world from an Immortal attack.

About Tamora Pierce

Tamora Pierce is the New York Times bestselling author of the The Song of the Lioness series, The Numair Chronicles, The Immortals series and The Protector of the Small quartet.


Pierce was born in South Connellsville, Pennsylvania and her parents were originally going to call her `Tamara', but the nurse who filled out her birth certificate had never heard of that name before and accidentally misspelled it.


A passionate reader from an early age, devouring encyclopaedias, Dr Seuss books and J.R.R. Tolkien, writing helped Pierce get through her parents' divorce. In her junior year at college, she sold her first story and went on to publish The Song of the Lioness in 1983: changing the landscape of fantasy fiction forever. An award-winning, multiple New York Times bestselling author whose books have been published all over the world, Pierce lives in New York with her husband.
