Tamora Pierce returns to the land of Tortall with a heroine who refuses to quit in this first book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Protector of the Small series.

Ten years after knighthood training was opened to both males and females, no girl has been brave enough to try. But knighthood is Keladry's one true desire, and so she steps forward to put herself to the test.

Up against the traditional hazing of pages and a grueling schedule, Kel faces one roadblock that seems insurmountable: 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 a probationary trial period that no male page has ever had to endure. Further set apart from her fellow trainees, Kel's path to knighthood is now that much harder. But she is determined to try, and she's making friends in the most unlikely places. One thing is for sure, Kel is not a girl to underestimate.

    " 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. "
