The entire Protector of the Small series was my very favorite growing up. I read and reread it - to this day I could remember the exact phrasing of much of the book. I bought the audiobook, but worried over whether the narrator would do it justice. She did.
the narrator continues to do a fabulous job on this series! some of the storylines were tied up and I was seriously wondering how it could be carried over into a fourth book. and now I know - and can't wait to read it!
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. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Really awesome storyline.
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.
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.
Yes, but unfortunately I couldn't. As with any audiobook, it was simply too long.
It's a really good story, with a really strong female protagonist. I highly recommend it.
