Review: Wow, what an ending. I loved that Pierce went onto what happen Next after a hero has done what they have set out to do. Allanna is no different, she wants to do more then to go home and deal with people not ok with here being a woman knight. One of the best parts is that we get to see her grown as a person, hero, and from a girl into a woman. Because as we all know, she didn’t want to fall in love or have relationships with men/ boys. But over time we get to see her fall in love, have her heart broken, and break a couple of hearts herself. Although I think book is the best when it comes to her love life, because it doesn’t over shadow her, the plot, or stand in the way of her being her own person.
The new characters are pretty cool too… My favorite was Liam Ironarm, also know as the Dragon, his relationship with Alanna was one that I’m happy she got to experience and one that I felt she had to go through to finally come into her true self. Plus he was really badass…
By the end of Lioness Rampant I felt that everything that needed to be said was said and did not need to be dragged out in any more books. I also felt that Alanna’s story was one that will stay with me for along time to come, and I could only hope to be a fraction of what she is.
P.S- Warning may cause many to cry due to characters death.
4 out of 5 stars.
