Synopses & Reviews
Keladry of Mindelan has finally achieved her life-long dream of being a knight. But it's not turning out as she imagined at all. With the land of Tortall at war with the Scanrans, she has been assigned to oversee a refugee camp. But Kel has had a vision in the Chamber--a vision of the man behind the horrific battle machines that her fellow knights and friends are now fighting without her. She is torn between a duty she has sworn to do and a quest that she feels could turn the tide of the war. Bestselling author Tamora Pierce captivates her readers by telling stories filled with the classic elements of fantasy: high adventure, magic, and a touch of romance. But what makes the stories resonate with her legions of fans is the realism, often intense, that grounds her books in a modern sensibilty.
