    If you have read the Immortals series by Tamara Pierce is Numair Salmaln is a familiar name. In her new series, The Numair Chronicles do we get to know Numair Salmaln before he became a famous mage. When he was still Attam Draper. Tempests and Slaughter is the first new book i...

    A preface to this review: it?s not hyperbole to say that this is the book I have been waiting longer for than any other. I first read Tamora Pierce?s work in the early 2000s, and I remember being thrilled when Lady Knight came out in hardcover in 2002. It?s safe to say I?ve bee...

    I really like that we finally got a new book from Tamora Pierce, and I love that it's about Numair's childhood. But it felt a bit formulaic, like there wasn't a greater story to tell beyond that. (Which is understandable as we already know how this story ends). I was also irrationally ...

    I am a terrible fantasy fan. Why? Because I?ve never read a novel by Tamora Pierce. I am definitely going to have to correct that mistake by attempting to read her entire Tortall series, because, oh gosh, Tempests and Slaughter was magnificent. In Tempests and Slaughter, Pierce...

    4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2018/02/04/... Tempest and Slaughter was my first Tamora Pierce novel, and I loved it. The story follows protagonist Arram Draper, a gifted 10-year-old mage whose power rivals even that of students almost twice his age at t...

    I initially rated this four stars but did not write a review. For some reason, I wasn't ready. I had to go think about it some more before I could put my overall thoughts into words. And that's when I realized something: I was rating this based on what I wanted it to be, what I was...

    DNF at 255 pages. Don't flame me yall, this book wasn't the worst I've read. The writing is good, I can envision what is happening throughout the story, but for some reason the main character just... bores me. And for me, if the main character can't suck me in, the story won't be...

    **Spoiler-free review!** I think the first time I read about the Young Numair trilogy was on Tammy's "Upcoming Books" page way back in 2003, when I was 14 years old. I'm 28 now, and I can say honestly: this book completely lived up to half a lifetime's worth of anticipation. Tempest...

    We got a cool poster in the back of the book! I enjoyed this book but I do believe it could have been shorter with just the things that were in book. I'm hoping the next book will blow this one out of the water. My favorite character is, Preet the bird. You will love him to...

    This took me straight back to my happy place in Tortall. I ate this up and it was great to see Numair (uh, Arram), Varice, and Ozorne as kids at university. I have to admit that I don't see this book appealing as much to new fans of Pierce. It's not the best place to start with the ...

    This was my first book by the author. Overall I liked the book but it was closer to early middle school in content and plot. Minus the author's early fixation on pubescent morning wood I'd would consider letting my 7 year old listen to it. The characters are easy to like and this d...

    I'm not going to rate this book with a star rating. I read this to 42% in audiobook format. It was interesting enough but starts at a young middle-grade age for the main character(s). They age up but the writing never matures with them. There is, for me, a large issue with pacing. The ...

    The book had some interesting aspects (especially in world building), I think it has potential for the next books. Yet, I did not connect at all with the characters at all, which is unusual to me, and the story turned quickly into a flat story (there were moments in which I was super i...
