My Thoughts :
Continuing on Alanna's journey to becoming a knight. Throughout her training she is pushed and forced to face her fears. That she didn't want to confront.
I loved In the Hands of the Goddess even more than Alanna. Alanna grew up more in this installment of the series. She became a fearless fighter. There were definitely moments I didn't see coming, and also moments I was cheering for her.
Cannot wait to read The Woman Who Rides Like A Man, to see what becomes Alana on her next adventure. As well as the other charming characters in this series.
5/5 stars, Happy Reading, Ashley
