Dices that come with being a girl while maintaining the rigorous training of a page Kel's skills aren't the only things that are developing Her feelings for her best friend Neal are changingin a very uncomfortable way Luckily Kel has some new allies including an ugly but I need to take a moment to point out that Kel at eleven is five foot three in other words taller than I ll ever be AnywayNo stranger looking at her would have thought this disheveled girl was the sort to cause a storm of argument at courtThis is interesting because Kel is sheltered from this stuff at least through this book Pierce drops this in but doesn t go anywhere with it yet This book starts off with two projects for Kel and on this reread I thought that was convenient Very convenient First Jump then Lalasa and obviously both have bearing on the final big conflict Eh Eventually they re woven into the fabric of the series I really like Lalasa s arc but here they re Chekhov s guns there because they re necessaryuick commercial break to bring up a Neal comment apropos of nothingNeal will the Wildmage take himDaine Of course he replied She s here I saw her last night Ask her after supperDid you maybe want to go with me she offered gingerlyNo he told Kel nobly and sighed It just tries my heart to see her with that old man NEAL S THE BEST Also do we think Pierce got some angry feedback on Daine and Numair She made a crack about the age difference in First Test tooRoald of Conte was a fourth year page uiet and contained with his father s very blue eyes and black hair that could have come from either of his parents He was so polite that he appeared stiff and he made friends with difficulty but when he spoke he was listened toI m not even going to comment on when he spoke he was listened to of course people listened he s the prince I m guessing this was supposed to link him to Jonathan as a boy and that authority Jon had even when Alanna first met him but eh Oh look I ended up commenting on it What I really want to say though is that I love how two outspoken people like Jon and Thayet produced a very uiet son In fact I really like Roald and I wish he d been in Kel s books I know he couldn t have been because Kel s story has to be different from Alanna s somehow and it is STILL There s a comment later when the pages confront Joren and Co for making life a misery at Midwinter that says he s every bit as stubborn as his famous parents and I just wish we d gotten to see that Side note When Imrah of Legann chooses Roald to be his suire breaking with tradition blah blah do we think Jon told Imrah he wanted to do things differently How else did Imrah know to approach Roald what does he call Roald Technically Roald s in his service And does Roald wear Legann colorsVERY IMPORTANT SIDE NOTE Gary gives Kel a note to bring to the king atop Balor s Needle even though it could wait until morning ONLY GARYBalor s Needle though I liked that plotline a lot even though it s a bit of a Chekhov s gun too Somehow Neal mentioning they can t be late to the exams and that a page once jumped off Balor s Needle doesn t feel as heavy handed as Lalasa and Jump showing up within three pages of each other And Kel s fear of heights is already established and Gary casually makes her go up there maybe it s just good writing the way it s all intertwined The king gets Kel off the tower by taking her mind off what her body is doing that s an interesting spell and probably a powerful one and one that we never see again speaking of Chekhov s guns It reminded me of the Imperius Curse this time aroundArchery class followed weapons then tilting None of the pages ever expected anything new In the fourth week of Kel s third year however Lord Wyldon turned creativeWhat does it say about me that I read this thinking Hmmmm not so conservative after all huhTime passes strangely in this book The first book focused on a year this goes through the remaining three years of Kel s page training and it s only slightly longer than First TestBut I like the description of the training I like it a lot even though there s a lot of Kel is better than everyone her age I especially like it when Wyldon finds out Kel s been using weighted training weapons and has no idea how to react That s some of the Kel is better than everyone else stuff that s actually earned Joke s on you JorenThe archery master in the middle of introducing their exciting new arrows abruptly asks uinden to name their three dangerous neighbors I read that thinking about Legally Blonde and Emmett saying the professors use the Socratic method Random references abound in this reviewOn Joren he tries to be friendlier lol Neal being I myself have noticed my growing resemblance to a daffodil and yet he does so by assuring Kel that really she wants to get married because all women do I mean obviously he s hopeless and obviously we re supposed to take this as a sign he hasn t changed because it s so stupidly sexist but also it s so stupidly sexist I wish Joren was a slightly nuanced characterAll these are miscellaneous points I don t have any particular thoughts on the overarching plot mostly because I think the plot is next to irrelevant and it s the character development that s important That said I do have one uestion on the plot view spoilerHow did Joren think he d get away with it Obviously everyone would testify that there were extenuating circumstances a kidnapping for crying out loud that kept Kel away from the exams and obviously she d be allowed to take them later How stupid is this guy anyway hide spoiler

    I'm back with Kel and her pals as she makes her way through the four years of being a page There's still not too much here to distinguish it from the Alanna uartet even if it is better paced Kel's still having to deal with idiots of all ages who can't understand why a girl would want to be a knight and keep expecting her

    What I liked Keladry She grows on me with each book I read She’s just such a normal girl trying so hard to prove to everyone that she can be as good as any boy and she’ll stop at nothing until everyone sees it She trains harder and longer than the others and it really shows how dedicated she is to the life of a hero And in this book Kel shows that she really thinks those below her should be treated with respect Lalasa She begi
