Publisher's Summary

Kel has finally achieved her lifelong dream of being a knight. But it's not turning out as she imagined at all. She is torn between a duty she has sworn to uphold and a quest that she feels could turn the tide of war.

Unrelentingly realistic in its depiction of the horrors of war, Pierce provides exquisite details of the weaponry, topography, and culture of her world, and her control of a voluminous cast of characters is masterful.

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.

Loved it! Has a few mispronounced words and names

Great story, love Pierce 's stories based in Torttal. Narrator mispronounced a few things, but not too noticeable. If you like this series check out Tricksters Choice and Tricksters Queen; by far my absolute favorite books.

Great book

Love the book. Love all of Tamara's books. Don't like the performance person. Don't like the way she she has picked to read (voice) people in the books

The girl I wish I'd known when i was a girl.

Of all Tamora's protagonists thus far, Kel is the one i wish I'd read about when i was younger! The conclusion to this quartet was perfectly written and narrated.

Fantastic, as usual

Tamora Pierce always delights. the Protector Of The Small series are my favorites and, luckily, the narrator does a very good job.

Loved this series

I just wish they would have had the same voice actor who voices Numair in the wild magic series to voice him again! It was weird to hear him as a different person.

Holds up for over a decade!

I read this book for the first time when I was 12. 12 years later on my fourth read through and it's still just as amazing as the first time. I love this whole series it's probably my favorite that Pierce has written, with the Circle of Magic, or the Immortals tied for a very close second place.
