I love Tamora Pierce's books! I don't really have a favourite series though, more of a favourite book per series because the series' are so different. I'm still trying to get a copy of Tricksters Queen, as where ever I go they don't sell it.

My favourite so far has definitely been the Song of the Lioness quartet. It was soooo good! I've also read and enjoyed the Protector of the Small quartet and one of the Circle of Magic books, and I have The Immortals quartet sitting in my room on my 'to read' list. /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Oh hurray!! I love Tamora Pierce.

I have read The Immortals I-III (I need to get the fourth one.) I am also reading the Protector of the Small. I'm on the third one. Last summer I read the Trickster's Choice. It was good. I want to read the second one. They are probably my favorite fantasy series.

I would have to give Tamora a 10/10. Her books are great.

Oh, yes. Tamora Pierce is one of my very favorite authors. Since I read Terrier a few weeks ago, I have read all of her books. I don't own any of them yet, because I can't afford any more bookshelves and my desk, dresser, and floor are already covered in books, but I check them out so often it feels like I own them.

Hmm...I really liked the Trickster books, but Terrier was really good, too. I'll have to see how those turn out overall, and then decide. The Emelan books are good, but I'm still attached to Tortall.

I have seen some of Tamora's book. I'd have to say she's pretty good. There were times, though, when i barely grip on what she was trying to say. but I love those that I have read.

I only own Wild Magic and Emperor Mage. However I have read all the Tortall, all three quartets and the sequels with Kel.

I love Tammy's books! I loved Terrier adn the Protector of the Small series. I prefer the Tortall universe to the one in Circle of Magic, and with the Circle ones, I'll usually wait to buy them in stores instead of having them preordered. I can safely say I've read everything of hers excluding her White Tiger series. I really like the short stories too, they're fun to read.

Tamora Pierce is one of my favorite authors. My favorite series has to be Immortals, I wanted to be Daine so badly when I was younger. She's an amazing character, probably one of my top five book characters of all time.
The only series I've not liked much so far was The Circle Opens, Although I've only read the first book of that one, I found it really hard to get into it. Other than that I really like all of them.

I LOVE Tamora Pierce! My favorite books are definitely all of the Circle books, probably because I love spinning and weaving just like Sandry, and gardening like Briar!

I also love the Daine books, and well really all of them.

I got to meet Tammie twice and in real life she is so supportive of young writers and strong women!

Tamora Pierce rocks!

I like her new series about Beka Cooper. It was totally amazing and I can't wait for the second book to come out, because I don't think it has yet. I also liked her Trickster's Choice and Trickster's Queen. Most definately high on my favorite authors list. For some reason I've never gotten around to reading the Immortals series, I'm thinking I will read it once I finish 1984. I have read every book by her other than those.

I've read The Lioness quartet, The Immortals quartet, and Protector of the Small quartet. after that I stopped. I definitely thought those three sections of the overall series were very good. Prof. Opal

I am so glad that someone else (well, loads of people) love these books! I didn't know that that many people liked them. I feel like celebrating. *hands out cookies and butterbeer to everyone* Anyway, I love these books. I've read The Immortals, The Lioness Quartet, The Protector of the Small series, and the Tricksters Choice books. My favorite series is definitely the Immortal Series with Daine. I kind of have this thing for Numair. :P I like the Lioness Quartet, too, but I like Daine more than Alanna.

Tamora Pierce is my favorite author ever.
I can't pick one series that I like more than the others.
I have read every single on of her books.
And I can't wait for the next Beka Cooper to come out! :D

I really like Trickster's Choice//Trickster's Queen, though.

Although I love Numair as a character...
