    Story
    "Tamora Pierce creates active feminism."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I recommend this book to any adolescent teacher for classroom reading, or any young person who wants to feel impowered and liberated in a good way.


    What other book might you compare Lady Knight to and why?

    This book is the completion of a four book series and they should all be read. Wildmagic and other Tomara Pierce eries should also be made available in a young persons library.


    What about Bernadette Dunne’s performance did you like?

    Bernadette is a pleasure to listen to and caries the books feelings so very well.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but actually listened very successfully over a weeks time.


    Any additional comments?

    This series like others of Tamora Peirce, is very empowering to young adults and is a great read.

    Story
    "Great Story, Slightly Better-than-Average Reader."

    I love Tamora Pierce's works and Protector of the Small is actually my favorite series, but I found the performance by Bernadette Dunne a little distracting. From book to book the voices (namely Owen's) aren't consistent, and Ms. Dunne frequently puts the primary emphasis in a sentence on the wrong word, either changing the meaning of a sentence or removing it entirely. Specifically I can recall one sentence in either Page or Squire when she is listing the contents of Kel's travel pack given to her by her mysterious well-wisher; the written sentence is admittedly a little confusing in its comma usage, but the problem is when Ms. Dunne reads "...a hank of light, strong rope..." as "...a hank of light; strong rope.." changing the meaning from "a short length of sturdy, lightweight rope" to "a short length of light, and some strong rope," which is nonsensical. There are other examples of these strange malapropisms though I can't think of any more off the top of my head, but they do happen frequently enough to be distracting.

    "Wonderful end to the series!"
    What made the experience of listening to Lady Knight the most enjoyable?

    I love this story. Having read it in paperback many times and now hearing it read to me, it's a wonderful story full of everything good. It has action, drama, chivalry, and romance. I don't think anyone could not enjoy this story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lady Knight?

    I think a lot shows about the Keladry when her people are taken and how she handles the situation. We spend a lot of the book waiting for her to finally go on her quest.


    What about Bernadette Dunne’s performance did you like?

    Her voices are really good. She is exciting to listen to.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Kel meets Toby. At 18 caring for another person, not just because it's a duty but because you want things to be better for that person, is alot of what knighthood is about.

    "Excellent childrens book, tireing for adults"
    Where does Lady Knight rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Compared to Outlander, it is mediocre. However, I really like Tamora Pierce. She brings me back into my childhood. Additionally, I love the message she brings that everyone should be accepted as who they are and that girls can kick ass.


    Would you recommend Lady Knight to your friends? Why or why not?

    If they just want a good fantasy story I would recommend this book. If they are really into highly descriptive and high vocabulary novels I would not recommend this book.

    "Protector of the Small Quartet Series"

    I don't normally get a chance to write a review for book series, but I've decided that this one was worth the time. The way the character grows and becomes so much more I really enjoyed. I also enjoyed the way the characters around the main character, learned to accept her. I would highly recommend that people give this series a listen
