Review Detail4.5 25
Tamora Pierce does not disappoint in this historic series about the adventures of a girl struggling to become a knight. Alana is like the Mulan of Tortall (the kingdom where she lives), she has to pretend to be a guy to get into knight school and then falls in love with two guys who are unaware that she is a girl. She also battles many fierce creatures and the evil duke who comes back to life. The last book was the best in my opinion because Alana decides who she will marry (after the two men figure out that she is a girl), finds a wife for the prince of Tortall, and helps defeat Tortall's foes.
