So, this week I read Alanna: The First Adventure. Clearly, by the way it is stated above. So, this book is about a girl who switches places with her brother. Her brother goes on to learn sorcery and the girl goes to learn the ways of the warriors. It's pretty legit. I truly love this book, I mean I was always one for womanly impowerment, and to add the romance to this book was like adding water to a grease fire: Simply explosive. It truly was grand-tascular. I mean what girl doesn't want a prince to fall at their feet and kick male chauvinistic bottoms? I for one would enjoy that, immensely. Good thing this is only the first book, expect a few more reviews under this series.
