Amazon is going to use The Lord of the Rings series as their way to create their own Game of Throne-style series, by allowing themselves to explore the vast universe of Middle-Earth. While is this ... definitely a choice one could make, I find myself wondering why couldn't those millions of dollars have been used to create an adaption that was more—I don't know—obscure. Less known. Less already adapted into multiple massive blockbusters.

Tamora Pierce’s Forthcoming Exile Trilogy: Why It’s Already Making Me Cry With Joy

Tamora Pierce’s feminist fantasy shoots love and empowerment straight into the hearts and minds of her readers. I love all of her books, but Song of the Lioness, The Immortals, and Protector of the Small quartets are particularly special to me; after all, I’ve been reading them since I was 10.

Tamora Pierce Heroines, in the Style of Disney Heroines

I came to the work of Tamora Pierce later in life than usual, but I am nevertheless of the opinion that there can never be too much fan art of Alanna the Lioness.

Tamora Pierce is great." I agree, Nest of Straight Lines, I agree. You can find links to all nine of her designs, with explanations, here.
