Any Tamora Pierce fans?

I have enjoyed Pierce's books ffrom the first. I agree that Circle of Magic 
does seem aimed as a slightly younger age group, and the Imortals quartet has 
a few too many "alien" races running around in it. But I have liked all of 
her characters and she tells a ripping good yarn. 

I am also very pleased with Protector of the Small's start. It is difficult 
to tell stories which share such a similar framework without the "echo" 
deteriorating into a simple repeat. But the new viewpoint character is such a 
different personality from Alanna that there is a clear distinction. 

I am also glad to see that she is following the Circle of Magic characters as 
well. That set of stories had clearly not carried anything through to its 
conclusion during its term, I will be interested in finding out just what she 
is ultimately aiming towards with it.
