Summary
The mage Numair, the knight Alanna, and Queen Thayet enlist thirteen-year-old Daine's help to battle the dreadful immortal creatures that have recently begun to attack the kingdom of Tortall. Tamora Pierce has captivated the imaginations of readers everywhere with her acclaimed books set in the magical medieval world of Tortall. For longtime fans and new converts, here is a chance to discover a land of enchantment, legend, and adventure. In Wild Magic, all the orphaned Daine wants is a job. What she finds is magic. Hired by the Queen's Riders because of her knack with animals, Daine soon reveals that not only do animals obey her, but they also understand her words. But Daine must learn to trust humans before she can use her magic to save the kingdom. In Wolf-speaker, a threatened wolf pack summons the only human they know who can listen to their messages of danger-orphaned Daine. Daine believes the wolves' message of peril, but the danger and intrigue brewing in Dunlath Valley are far beyond anything she imagined. In Emperor Mage, Daine sails to Carthak as part of a peace treaty delegation from Tortall. While healing the emperor's captive birds, Daine discovers a new and terrifying dimension of her wild magic: She can bring dead creatures back to life. What is she to do with such immense power? Finding out the answer nearly costs Daine her life. Thirteen-year-old DaIne has always had a knack with animals, but it's not until she's forced to leave home that she realizes it's more than a knack -- it's magic. With this wild magic, not only can Daine speak to animals, but also she can make them obey her. Daine takes a job handling horses for the Queen's Riders, where she meets the master mage Numair and becomes his student. Under Numair's guidance, Daine explores the scope of her magic. But she begins to sense other beings too: immortals. These bloodthirsty monsters have been imprisoned in the Divine Realms for the past four hundred years, but now someone has broken the barrier. It's up to Daine and her friends to defend their world from an immortal attack
