"I don't want to fall in love.

I just want to be a warrior maiden."

Still disguised as a boy, Alanna becomes a squire to none other than the prince of the realm. Prince Jonathan is not only Alanna's liege lord, he is also her best friend — and one of the few who knows the secret of her true identity. And when the Prince's life is threatened by a mysterious sorcerer, it will take all of Alanna's skill, strength, and magical power to protect him — even at the risk of revealing who she really is....

Filled with swords and sorcery, adventure and intrigue, good and evil, Alanna's second adventure continues the saga of a girl who dares to follow her dreams — and the magical destiny that will make her a legend in her land.

Cassandra Ellwood, January 11, 2007 (view all comments by Cassandra Ellwood)
The second installment of Tamora Pierce's quartet following the life and deeds of Alanna the Lioness picks up shortly after the first novel left off. It follows Alanna throughout her period as a squire and on through the ordeal of knighthood. Romance is much more present this time around, but not so much that it takes away from the journey Alanna is making as she matures. It adds a sense of humor to the novel that gives further insight to the characters.

Though sometimes the pace of the story feels a little rushed - one hardly realizes that four years are covered in the space of a scant two-hundred pages - the story never loses a reader's interest and perfectly sets up the following two novels and the realm of Tortall.
