Sweet summer reading

These books are rightly marketed to teens, but I am enjoying the series as an adult. In the Hand of the Goddess is well written and engaging. I wouldn't say the series is completely predictable, but it does conform well to the genera, and is thus satisfying in a certain comforting way that some sf/fantasy written for adults is often not.

Book 2

It's an absolute must to read this series from the beginning. Tamora Pierce as always is an excellent young adult author, and this book has much more timing appropriate emotional development (not rushing through/skipping over several years).
