Fans of Tamora Pierce, the fourth and final Protector of the Small installment is here!
Keladry of Mindelan has become a knight, and she can't forget one crucial task that the Chamber of the Ordeal has set before her: to destroy the Nothing Man, Blayce the Gallan, the leader of horrible killing machines. Now that that war-thirsty King Maggur has "brought all Scanra's clans into his grip," Kel is determined to fight any invading troops until she can enter Scanran territory and find Blayce. Unfortunately, she's been given a position that makes it rather difficult -- head of a refugee camp, away from the front lines. Can she stand to push back the battle fire that burns within her? Will she ever conquer Blayce and live up to her nickname as Protector of the Small? With her honor to Tortall -- along with her life -- at stake, Kel makes some powerful choices that could mean victory or defeat.
Packed with startling, graphic action and reassuring humanity, Lady Knight is a thrilling conclusion to Pierce's four-book series. Not only is Kel a fierce knight, but her humor and modesty make her a true leader that anyone would want on their side. The ending is also energizing and suspenseful, and we can only hope that Tamora Pierce might spin off more books from one of Lady Knight's many characters. A lion-hearted success! Matt Warner
