In the medieval and fantastic realm of Tortall, Keladry of Mindelan (known as Kel) is the first girl to take advantage of the decree that permits females to train for knighthood. Up against the traditional hazing of pages and a grueling schedule, Kel faces only one real roadblock: Lord Wyldon, the training master of pages and squires. He is absolutely against girls becoming knights. So while he is forced to train her, Wyldon puts her on probation for one year. It is a trial period that no male page has ever had to endure and one that separates the good-natured Kel even more from her fellow trainees during the tough first year. But Kel is not a girl to underestimate, as everyone is about to find out. . .

    " a book of another awesome series by tamora pierce. This one is about Kel of Mendalin who wants to be a knight like the legendary Alanna. Unlike Alanna who is descised as a boy during her training, Kel braves it as a girl. "

    " Where has this book been? How did I miss it? I love the matter of fact story telling. Gritty girl heroine, a little magic and weapons. All the good elements for a coming of age book set who knows where or when. The best part is that it is a quartet of books and I've got three more to read. "

    " I much prefer Alanna's story but Kel does a decent job. I wish it had more of George and Alanna in it though. "
