    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...

    Arram hates being bored. Fortunately the mages at the Imperial University don't believe in holding students back. Instead, they toss Arram into individualized classes, along with Varice--the girl Arram intends to one day marry--and Ozorne, the heir--many times removed--to the Cartha...

    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...

    Well. This calls to mind that first Patrick Rothfuss book - it's all "super talented guy wows people at exclusive school". (I hate those stories.) At least the Rothfuss had some stakes and conflict, though. There is no conflict here. This is is a prequel that skates by on its name-drop...

    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 ...

    My first book by Tamora Pierce! I was so happy to hear that Tempests and Slaughter could be an entry point to Pierce's extensive Tortall universe, because I have been wanting to try one of her books for ages. I ended up quite loving this book. I will be completely honest, this isn'...
