Keladry is the first girl to take advantage of a hard-won decree that girls
may become knights. Kel must struggle to prove to her prejudiced
training master and to her fellow students that she can keep up with the
boys, even though unfairly placed on probation for a year in hopes of flunking
her out of the program. Vowing to protect the weak, Kel finds herself
befriending animals and battling bullies and monsters in a magical, medieval
land. How can she win through to respect and true training for knighthood?
