The Song of the Lioness is possibly one of my favorite series, even if it’s marketed to teenage girls. Because you know what? I’ve still got some teenage girl in me, and I am not ashamed to say so. It’s a quartet, with the books following the life of Alanna of Trebond, a young noble girl who hatches a plot to disguise herself as a boy and be sent to the royal kingdom to train as a knight, while her twin brother, Thom, goes to the convents to learn magic. More after the jump.
Well, I figured I might as well dive right into a review. And of course, this will be one of the longer ones, as it’s for the longest series I’m covering. This post will be about the series “A Song of Ice and Fire” by George R. R. Martin. There will be major, major spoilers, as I’m addressing the entire series (published to date).
