While Alanna is viewed as being a hero for disgusing herself as a man and becoming a knight, Kel may prove to have a more difficult task. As the first openly female knight-in-training in centuries, Kel has to face tough sexism on top of the trials and tribulations of being a Page. This book, taking place over a span of three years, show's Kel maturation into young adulthood. Here, Kel will face many physical, mental, and emotional obstacles. Luckily, she has friends, of the human and animal variety, to keep her strong. But with people out there who are intent on seeing her fail, does she have any hope of becoming more than just a Page?

Kel continues her training as she becomes a young woman in this story. I really like that the author's characters are educated when it comes to human nature and sex instead of it being considered a "sin" and something that shouldn't be talked about. It's refreshing to see such open-mindedness in a book meant for young adults.
The character Wyldon has also managed to grow on me as he's giving Kel the credit she deserves for the hard work she has done.
An overall wonderful book with many fine qualities.
