But her real challenge doesn't come until after she wins. As the first female shaman, Alanna must fight to change the ancient traditions of the stubborn desert tribes - for their own sake and for the sake of all Tortall.

This third audiobook in the Song of the Lioness quartet continues Alanna's saga as she strikes out alone and discovers herself anew.

Critic reviews

"Actress Trini Alvarado gives a performance consistent with her previous narrations in this series. She projects a youthful, but strong character for Alanna; this is her outstanding strength." (School Library Journal)
