Ten-year-old Keladry of Mindalen, daughter of nobles, serves as a page but must prove herself to the males around her if she is ever to fulfill her dream of becoming a knight. When Alanna became the King's Champion, it was decided that girls would henceforth be allowed to train for the knighthood. But ten years have passed, and no girls have come forward. Now, however, someone is about to change all that and her name is Kel.

I REALLY liked this book!! It had me laughing many a time!
Also I found it quite funny that the more the 'bullies' beat her up, the more combat practice she got! They were helping her with out releasing it!!

Great book about a doubted girl trying to prove herself in the medival world ruled by men. An excellent, dynamic book.

I liked Keladry's series a little less than Alanna's, but I found this one more interesting. While Alanna disguises herself as a boy to become the first Lady Knight, Kel is a girl through and through and struggles through the challenges a sexist world throws at her to reach her dream.

This and the Terrier series are my favorite Tamora Pierce. I recommend to read this series first as it incorporates all the pain and dedication needed for the first girl, who everyone knows as a girl, to go through the hazing and torment of learning to become a knight.
