    "Awesome"

    I have loved Tamora Pierce's works since I was a child and this is one of the books I always come back to. Lots of love for Kel and her friends, and all the messes she gets into.

    "Love Tammy and Kel is one of my fave characters!"

    Can't help but love Tamora Pierce and all of her writings. From Alanna to Aly all of her female characters are amazing and vastly different. In the Lioness Rampant we have a female knight who proves women can do all that her male counter parts can do and more. In The Immortals we have the wild mage who speaks to animals, shape shifts and learns about her magical abilities. Now in The Protector of the Small we have Kel, a young woman trying to prove she can be the next female knight after Lady Alanna and she is a wonderful character that Tamora created who stands up to bullies in all forms and protects those who can't protect themselves. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    "Great story, okay performance"
    If you could sum up Squire in three words, what would they be?

    Really awesome storyline.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nealan of Queenscove will always be my favorite. I love the relationship he has with Kel, where they have each other's backs no matter what.


    Did Bernadette Dunne do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    This is the one thing I didn't like. Yes, Bernadette Dunne did a good job differentiating the characters from one another. However, I didn't enjoy the voice she used for Kel. It was kind of nasally and I didn't think it would be the kind of voice that a girl between the ages of 14 and 18 would have. That could just be a personal preference.


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

    Yes, but unfortunately I couldn't. As with any audiobook, it was simply too long.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a really good story, with a really strong female protagonist. I highly recommend it.
