When Keladry of Mindelan is chosen by the legendary Lord Raoul to be his squire, the conservatives of the realm hardly think she's up to the job. Kel quickly proves her ability as a jouster, warrior, and guardian of a fiery griffin, ultimately earning respect and admiration among the men, as well as the affection of a fellow squire. In addition to coping with the challenges of a new romance and a life in the royal guard, Kel must also prepare for the infamous 'Ordeal', the last challenge that stands between her and her dream of knighthood.
Great book, too many spelling and grammatical errors
It's spelt Corus. Not corns. This, while a wonderful book, is littered with spelling errors. The beginning and end of conversation should have quotation marks, not just the end. Honestly take some care with your work.
Fantastic book but pity about the spelling errors
I loved Tamora Pierce as a teen and I love re-reading her books as an adult but this book especially is littered with errors, for example the capital of Tortell is Corus and throughout this version is constantly called Corns, this makes for an extremely frustrating read. Tamora Pierce gets 5 stars, Scholastic gets 1.
