I have been a huge fan of Tamora Pierce for years and years; I feel like I’m always waiting to see what she has publishing next. While this isn’t a novel, I still love the world of Tortall and am excited to explore just what is in this companion piece and take a little nostalgia trip.

The secrets of Tortall are revealed. . . .

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!
