This third book of Pierce's quartet finds Keladry of Mindelan, now a tall 14-year-old, ready to begin her squire training. Chosen by the likable Lord Rauol, who promises her an exciting, if dangerous, life, she becomes a member of the King's Own and meets a variety of swashbuckling challenges that test her courage and loyalty. Bernadette Dunne has done an excellent job narrating this series. Once again, she expertly leads listeners into Pierce's carefully imagined, absorbing world, where she seems equally at home whether presenting Tortall's courtly conventions or Kel's budding sense of romance and its potential consequences. Dunne conveys all the strength, determination, and likability of Pierce's powerful young female warrior. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2008]
