Trailer È First Test PDF by Þ Tamora Pierce No review I could ever write would do this book or series justice This series to me is the pinnacle of Tamora Pierce s career She had many wonderful books but the emotional and physical turmoil her protagonist Kel goes through to earn her knighthood is nothing that I have ever experienced in another YA book Kel perseveres against every trial imaginable, and while at times she can seem a bit too mature she s only 10 in this one , she is unique and refreshing in a world of cliche She is what every female warrior should be And what s For once an author cast a tomboy who wasn t secretly some beautiful girl she was normal, plain, a LumpYou won t ask it, but I ll do it anyway, she thought stubbornly You ll see I m as Mini review Trigger warning Animal abuseMinor spoilers ahead DNFTamora Pierce is an author I have heard off On a whim I decided to try on of her books Unfortunately this book didn t work for me.
In the beginning the first chapter Kel stops these boys from drowning kittens While attempting to rescue the kittens a monster comes And starts to eat them I couldn t make myself read any I felt sick to my stomach I do still recommend it As Kel s a very strong character and I have a feeling others will enjoy this.
This is my first book series from Tamora Pierce, meaning that I did not read her Song of the Lioness series prior However, although Alanna, and as I discovered, multiple other characters from the author s other books in the same world are mentioned, I did not feel as though there was something I was missing to enjoy this particular story.
Actually, because Alanna was mentioned so many times, I now feel very interested in picking Pierce s Song of the Lioness up Though it s true there are some spoilers in this series, so I would say read it after Song of the Lioness, or before, if it s not that problematic for you It wasn t for me.
This is the story of a girl who wants to become a knight For that to happen, Kel must be trained by the King s trainer, who dislikes her Unfortunately, even if girls are technically allowed to become knights now, bec 3rd read 12 16 2016Edit Raised this up to 5 Stars, because after discussing it with Rachel E Carter, I ve decided that yes, Kel is the awesomest I had forgotten how good this series is It s hard to decide which is my favorite, this one or Alanna.

2nd read 7 20 2015original read 11 11 2012 I liked this book listened to it as an audio book It was a quick, fast read I was mostly interested, but the story was entirely predictable My biggest problem was that Kel is a 10 year old girl, but at no time did she actually act like it She was way too mature for her age both in how she acted, her physical abilities and even how she spoke It was in no way believable that she was a child My other gripe is view spoiler I rolled my eyes for the entire ending the idea that the elite kings guard would take along 20 ten year old kids on a dangerous mission is just absurd hide spoiler I started this series with the thought that it was going to be a do over of Pierce s previous, successful Alanna the Lioness Quartet, which followed a girl named Alanna, of course who dressed like a boy and took her twin brother s place in page training while he took her place in magic school not dressed as a girl The four books of that quartet follow her progress from page, to squire, to knight and king s champion with her sex being discovered along the way I was pleasantly surprised to find that not only does Pierce give Keladry her own unique strong personality and story, but also that in some ways I enjoyed Keladry s story than Alanna s Keladry s struggle to be the first openly female page in Tortall strikes me as being b In The Medieval And Fantastic Realm Of Tortall, Keladry Of Mindelan Is The First Girl To Take Advantage Of The Decree That Permits Females To Train For Knighthood Up Against The Traditional Hazing Of Pages And A Grueling Schedule, Kel Faces Only One Real Roadblock Lord Wyldon, The Training Master Of Pages And Squires He Is Absolutely Against Girls Becoming Knights So While He Is Forced To Train Her, Wyldon Puts Her On Probation For One Year It Is A Trial Period That No Male Page Has Ever Had To Endure And One That Separates The Good Natured Kel Even From Her Fellow Trainees During The Tough First Year But Kel Is Not A Girl To Underestimate, As Everyone Is About To Find Out I am going to save my reminiscing about this series for the third book Or at least I m going to try Some might creep in unnoticed.
First off I HATE SPIDRENS I HATE SPIDRENS I HATE SPIDRENS I HATE SPIDRENS.
Spidrens were, actually, the first Immortals I ever read about, because I went straight from the Lioness Quartet to this series So in the first chapter or so, when Kel finds a spidren biting the heads off kittens, I was deeply disturbed I still am What I love about that scene is Kel s reaction She wades across a river, gathers a handful of stones, and goes after the monster with only rocks for ammunition Seriously, this girl is the most badass ten year old EVER She s awesome And she s got a great attitude, to boot chock full of determination and not about to let traditionalists keep her from becoming a knight Her motivation to seek knighthood, too, is wonderful she has a powerful, Alanna clenched her fists What was going on Was Jonathan inclined to give way to the man who d saved his children And with that, possibly the stupidest line Pierce has ever written, Kel s story begins I m big on details lately, and the introduction is shaky on them Here are places the writing is less than precise The training master absently rubbed the arm in its linen sling At last he bowed in his chair May we compromise, sire Maybe that first line is here to show Wyldon s hesitation before answering Jonathan with the probation proposal The problem is that his gesture calls to mind the reason for the sling hey, remember when my arm was raked by a hurrok while I was saving your kids which makes the gesture not quite absent.
And then This book changed my childhood I had read stories about lady knights before about women dressing as men, fighting the odds, and changing the world But this story is different Kel doesn t dress in drag, she doesn t hide herself, she doesn t try to change the world She just wants to be a knight, and will do whatever it takes to achieve her goal She is my number one female character in a YA novel, and that has not changed in a long long time.
I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone To people who want to feel better about humanity, people who want female characters who are realistic and soulful, or just people who love knighthood, battles, and magic.
