Series: Numair Chronicles #1
"Tamora Pierce is a pillar, an icon,and an inspiration"-SarahJ Maas
"Tempests and Slaughter is a thoroughly enjoyable high fantasy novel that I recommend to Tamora Pierce fans and newbies, like myself. Although I was a little worried that I wouldn’t be able to follow along clearly – with my lack of knowledge – there was no cause for concern. The novel is readable, concise, and highly entertaining. I am so very excited to continue the series, now that everything has been set up in the first novel."- Laura- Goodreads
