Tempests and Slaughter Reviews

  • Sam Maggs

    **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.

    Tempests and Slaughter brought back all the magic of the Lioness and Immortals quartets for me. It's no secret that I'm a huge Tamora Pierce fan, and Numair is my forever #1 man (hello, he's a Goldblum lookalike), but I admit

    Tempests and Slaughter brought back all the magic of the Lioness and Immortals quartets for me. It's no secret that I'm a huge Tamora Pierce fan, and Numair is my forever #1 man (hello, he's a Goldblum lookalike), but I admit I was little nervous about reading a Tammy book from a male POV. I shouldn't have worried, of course; Arram's story is treated with such grace and care that I quickly forgot all of my reservations. Plus, there's so much diversity in the book (of race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, class, etc., etc.) that it more than makes up for the lack of a female protagonist. Fans of Tammy's work will be thrilled by all the references to past (wait, future?) series, and many of your Immortals faves make appearances. I just can't say enough good things about this book - it felt like the return to Tortall I've truly been waiting for.

    My only complaint is that I PLAYED MYSELF BY READING AN ARC OF THIS BOOK IT DOESN'T EVEN COME OUT UNTIL FEBRUARY AND THEN WE HAVE TO WAIT WHO KNOWS HOW LONG FOR THE NEXT ONE RIP RIP RIP PLS DIRECT ME TO FANART SO I CAN SURVIVE

    This isn't really a review, more of a gush.

    Okay so Alanna is my girl right? She's my bestie though she doesn't realize it. But Arram Draper has not so subtly stolen into my dark little heart and set it on 🔥FIRE🔥.

    First off, thank you Tamora Pierce for like, all the books. BUT THIS ONE is precious. Not because it's Numair's backstory, but this book, though completely new to me, felt like coming home.

    I see Ozorne as a teenager, I see Arram learning how special he is, I see gods and their immorta

    I felt so happy reading this because it added so much more to the magic of this world. It gave us history and depths to plunge. The Carthaki Empire has been expanded and given its "moment to shine", though maybe not as brightly as others would prefer. Slavery = no no.

    It was so much fun to see from an early age Arram's magic grow, his struggles as a young mage in advanced classes, his friendship with the Leftover Prince, and him coming into himself. He truly was special all along and now we get to see it. (Like for real, dude has special written AAALLLLLLLLL OVER HIM.)

    There were times this novel made me worry about some characters like you wouldn't believe and I'm so glad my worrying was fruitless. I don't know why I thought there'd be more death (oh wait... that title) but this novel was quintessential Pierce and this new story didn't disappoint at all. It was happy, fun, witty, and completely entertaining.

    Of course now I'm expected to wait a year+ for book two and so of course I'll reread the series 3 times... at least.

    Look if you loved any book Tamora Pierce has written in the Tortall realm you'll love this one.

    BUT SERIOUSLY. I love this book. So much. All the love. Only love.

    I've been waiting my entire life for this book and the publishing date keeps getting pushed back!

    Please, please, fulfill my childhood wish for a book about Numair before I turn 30!( That gives you 7 years, Mrs. Pierce. Don't waste that time!)

    Tamora just announced this book won't be published until 2017.
