Cathy’s Pick

Tamora Pierce

Tamora Pierce has built an entire new world with the main country being Tortall, but some of her books take you to other countries, where lifestyle and politics are different. Her books have strong female leads faced with choices and given powers that they must master to help better their countries and the world. Magic is called “The Gift” and some have it, others do not. There is also Free magic, but it is rare and believed to be a myth by many. The Gods play a large part in the lives of all the people in her world. The pantheon has many gods, some of which do their best to mettle in Human events in order to shape the world to their liking. At certain times, they must step back and let human choices change the course of history. They can only mettle so much. – Cathy
