A Highly Biased Definitive Ranking of Tamora Pierce Series - Tortall Edition: posted on Dec 2, 8:05 pm by jfhobbit (Ned The Duck) - 21 entries
This post is brought to you by the article I read on this topic that I strenuously disagreed with, both in methodology and conclusions. Obviously, the only answer was to do my own and fix the issues. All love to Tammy, whose books have kept me company for most of my life, and have provided unparalleled comfort reading in my adult years. Especially this year, when so many of my other childhood favorites don't hold up as well. (0 likes)
