After reading three paranormalurban fantasy romances in a row you can only imagine how happy I was to read not only something different but something GOODGood is the best description I can give of Alanna I wouldn't say it was great It gets pretty close to it though Some parts of it seem unrealistic to me Alanna being so readily accepted by the boys etc But the story is short fun action packed with magic and mystery and high adventureAlanna it a great character Stubborn cheeky doubtful of herself The supporting characters ranging from Prince Jonathan Sir Myles and King George are all great Gary Raoul and Alex are never fully realized but that's only to be expected with such a short bookIt is the rather typical girl in boy's clothing story but the writing is rather good and the sense of fun than makes up for some of the predictability The end isn't uite the blazing glory that I'd hope for but it wasn't too bad and there's many books to follow so I can't waitOver all a thoroughly enjoyable read and I can't wait to devour the seuelsEdited to AddI just had to mention something possibly the one thing that really annoyed me There's this evil character in the book The king's nephew He's clearly evil and it's made very obvious to the reader but despite all of the evidence the Prince refuses to believe that this person could possibly betray himSay what This isn't the first time I've read something like this in a book and I have to wonder if the author ever imagined what it would be like growing up in court a system usually known for its lies and betrayal and petty suabbling over powerNow I'm sorry but if I were ueen of the world think about it it really wouldn't be such a bad idea I'm not asking you to vote or anything just to ponder the possibility then I'd kind of be cautious if I'd almost died twice and the only person that could possibly have tried to kill me twice was the first person to inherit the throne upon my death I'd at least take a moment to think about itAnd why trust anyone implicitly If I were ueen of the World don't you think that title just SUITS me then I'd have categories of peopleThose absolutely trusted without uestionThose I trust mostly but keep an eye onThose I'm friendly with but am wary ofThose I don't trust people in this category would either be about to die or already deadThe titles of Those Absolutely Trusted Without uestion will be awarded posthumously after they've completed an act to save my life losing theirs in the process I just find this kind of trusting royal a ridiculous characterization If you have a significant ruling power say a kingdom then despite receiving it by right of birthmightmoney someone is going to try and take it from you They may be smarter better looking and capable then you but it's still your job to ensure they never wrest power from your cold dead fingers To do that you kind of have to use a little brain power and a little less blind loyaltyBreaths a sigh of relief And I promised myself I'd have a break from ranting Oh well maybe the next review will be rant free

Learn to control her heart and to discern her enemies from her alliesFilled with swords and sorcery adventure and intrigue good and evil Alanna's first adventure begins one that will lead to the fulfillment of her dreams and the magical destiny that will make her a legend in her land. This is the first book in a series written for the younger end of the young adult readership but which is still of interest to readers of any ageAlanna The First Adventure is a fantasy set in a place where magic is common and knights are trained in the ways of chivalry Alanna is fighting against the constraints of being female in such a society and having dressed herself as a boy she sets off to be trained as a page with the hope of a knighthood in the future I enjoyed the story and the characters As a young person's book it is fairly short in length and simple in its structure and interactions It was a very pleasant light easy read and I would recommend it to younger readers starting out in the world of fantasy and also to young at heart readers who feel like a breath of fresh air in their reading matter
