Saturday Spotlight: Tortall: A Spy’s Guide by Tamora Pierce

Tortall: A Spy's Guide

Hardcover, 320 pages
Published October 31st 2017 by Random House Books for Young Readers
Today’s spotlight is on a book long in the making, but is not a novel.  This is a companion to the fantastic world created by Tamora Pierce, Tortall.  One of my favorite places, and my answer to the question, “What magical realm would you visit/live in?”  Many of my favorite, inspirational characters live within this universe, Daine, Alanna, Numair, and so many others.  I’m super stoked that Numair’s prequel series comes to us so soon!!  In just a few short months, so this book can trigger memories and refresh your sense of the world and what’s been happening.
Needless to say, I’m very excited to read this book and add it to my collection.  Maybe someone will get it from my wishlist for Christmas 🙂

Summary:

The secrets of Tortall are revealed. . . .

As Tortall’s spymaster, George Cooper has sensitive documents from all corners of the realm. When Alanna sends him a surprising letter, he cleans out his office and discovers letters from when King Jonathan and Queen Thayet first ascended the throne, notes on creating the Shadow Service of spies, threat-level profiles on favorite characters, Daine’s notes on immortals, as well as family papers, such as Aly’s first report as a young spy and Neal’s lessons with the Lioness. This rich guide also includes the first official timeline of Tortallan events from when it became a sovereign nation to the year Aly gives birth to triplets. Part history, part spy training manual, and entirely fascinating, this beautiful guide makes a perfect gift and is ideal for anyone who loves Alanna, King Jonathan, Queen Thayet, Kel, Neal, Aly, Thom, Daine, Numair, and the unforgettable world of Tortall!
