Book Review: Tortall and Other Lands: A Collection of Tales

Tortall and Other Lands: A Collection of Tales is a selection of ten short stories from Tamora Pierce. This young adult collection puts Pierce's ability to draw the reader into the lives of her characters on display perfectly. Pierce consistently writes compelling tales for children and young adults that make the readers really care about the characters and the bigger picture of the world that they live in. While eight of the stories in this book are fantasy, taking place in Tortall and surrounding lands, there are also two works that take place in the real world. Fans on Pierce will be thrilled to see some stories about favorite characters, and some new characters. There are also two stories that take place in modern time and real places, rather than the fantasy realm of Tortall. I count myself among Pierce's fans, and fully admit to suggesting her work to many people when they ask for reading recommendations for their children or themselves.
