From the Inside Flap
When Kel is chosen by the legendary Lord Raoul to be his squire, the conservatives of the realm hardly think she's up to the job. Kel earns respect and admiration among the men, as well as the affection of a fellow squire.

However, the pace seems to be promising to pick up in the next book, and I hope that Kel will finally be allowed to grow up. These are still excellent books, especially for girls - considering that the fantasy field seems to be dominated by male characters, it's nice to see YA fantasy fiction featuring strong, independent young women, rather than just soppy love-interests.
Kel ages as a character and becomes involved in more adult themes and problems, but all done in a good way.
The book sets up Lady Knight and what I assume will be Kel's 'coming of age' task, and I can't wait for that to be published!
My only complaint is that I wish these books were available when I was 13-14, reading then at 25 is still great, but when I was younger the magic and wonder of this creation would have been better still.
So over all, I would say, its definately worth the read if you are a tamora pierce fan but its not her best work and there is something missing from it.
Well, you won't find out unless you buy this book!
Kel is getting quite anxious by now, all these knights at the royal palace, but none seem to be choosing squires. Will she be a deskknight's squire and her battles be with paperwork?
Well, I guess not (that would make a boring story now wouldn't it?), Raoul of Goldenlake leader of the king's own picks Kel to be his squire. Was a kinder man ever born? Kel goes with him to many places and has some... interesting adventures.
She is courted by someone, takes care of an interesting creature and fights off terrible creatures. Meanwhile, the ordeal of knighthood is coming ever closer. Will she prove some girls can be knights? (The title of the next book kinda gives it away.)
Fast-paced and fantastic all the way through, though not ideal if you need to go to school or study. Is worth more than it costs and will not bore off after a few reads.
