Young Daine's knack with horses gets her a job helping the royal horsemistress drive a herd of ponies to Tortall. Soon it becomes clear that Daine's talent, as much as she struggles to hide it, is downright magical. Horses and other animals not only obey, but listen to her words. Daine, though, will have to learn to trust humans before she can come to terms with her powers, her past, and herself.
Wild Mage is a delightful addition to all the Tortall books. With great, charismatic characters, intriguing magic, and magical action that laces this book with fun laughable and scary moments. Daine is different from other Tortall ladies, she is a little feminine on top of all of her badassness. She also has an intriguing past that keeps you wonder and clutching for the next chapter.
Tamora Pierce is one of my favorite authors and I would recommend any of her books.
