Description

The must-have guide for any fan of #1 New York Times bestselling fantasy author TAMORA PIERCE! Enter the world of Tortall in this full-color, behind-the-scenes collectible guide, brought to you by the author who Sarah J. Maas says “shaped [her] not only as a young writer but also as a young woman” and whom Leigh Bardugo calls “the real lioness.”
 
The secrets of Tortall are revealed. . . .
 
As Tortall’s spymaster, George Cooper has sensitive documents from all corners of the realm. When Alanna sends him a surprising letter, he cleans out his office and discovers letters from when King Jonathan and Queen Thayet first ascended the throne, notes on creating the Shadow Service of spies, threat-level profiles on favorite characters, Daine’s notes on immortals, as well as family papers, such as Aly’s first report as a young spy and Neal’s lessons with the Lioness. This rich guide also includes the first official timeline of Tortallan events from when it became a sovereign nation to the year Aly gives birth to triplets. Part history, part spy training manual, and entirely fascinating, this beautiful guide makes a perfect gift and is ideal for anyone who loves Alanna, King Jonathan, Queen Thayet, Kel, Neal, Aly, Thom, Daine, Numair, and the unforgettable world of Tortall!
 
“Tamora Pierce creates epic worlds populated by girls and women of bravery, heart, and strength. Her work inspired a generation of writers and continues to inspire us.” —HOLLY BLACK, #1 New York Times bestselling author
 
“Few authors can slay so effectively with a single sentence—I mean fist-in-the-air, shouting-at-my-book slay—as Tamora Pierce. All these years later, I still draw strength from her words.” —MARIE LU, #1 New York Times bestselling author

      • bioText: TAMORA PIERCE is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of over eighteen novels set in the fantasy realm of Tortall. She first captured the imagination of readers with her debut novel, Alanna: The First Adventure. Since then, her bestselling and award-winning titles have pushed the boundaries of fantasy and young adult novels to introduce readers to a rich world populated by strong, believable heroines. Her books have been translated into many languages, and some are available on audio from Listening Library and Full Cast Audio. In 2013, she won the Margaret A. Edwards Award for her “significant and lasting contribution to young adult literature.” Pierce lives in Syracuse, New York, with her husband, Tim, and their cats, birds, and occasional rescued wildlife. Visit her at TamoraPierce.com and follow her on Twitter at @TamoraPierce.
        JULIE HOLDERMAN writes stuff and loves cats. A once-upon-a-time graduate of the Alpha Workshop for Young Writers, she returned ten years later to serve as a staff member. She studied writing and history at Ithaca College and is eyeing an MA in history, in pursuit of a PhD. She works full-time as Tamora Pierce’s assistant while building her writing portfolio.
        TIMOTHY LIEBE is the “Dreaded Spouse-Creature” and IT Guy for fantasy novelist Tamora Pierce, as well as her coauthor on the Marvel Comics White Tiger miniseries. He has written for National Public Radio, CNET, USA Network, and Pacifica Network and spent a decade as a consumer-electronics journalist and editor. An Army brat, Tim traveled the U.S. Midwest and Germany as a child.
         
        MEGAN MESSINGER’s work has appeared in Cicada, Fantasy Magazine, and Electric Velocipede, as well as other publications, and received an honorable mention in Datlow, Link, and Grant’s 2007 Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror. Megan discovered the books of Tamora Pierce, Bruce Coville, and Jane Yolen while home sick with the chicken pox in second grade—clearly the most fortuitous case of chicken pox ever. She lives with one foot in Tortall always; these days, the other foot and most of her vital organs are attending medical school in California.
