Publisher's Summary

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 story, okay performance

If you could sum up Squire in three words, what would they be?

Really awesome storyline.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Nealan of Queenscove will always be my favorite. I love the relationship he has with Kel, where they have each other's backs no matter what.

Did Bernadette Dunne do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

This is the one thing I didn't like. Yes, Bernadette Dunne did a good job differentiating the characters from one another. However, I didn't enjoy the voice she used for Kel. It was kind of nasally and I didn't think it would be the kind of voice that a girl between the ages of 14 and 18 would have. That could just be a personal preference.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but unfortunately I couldn't. As with any audiobook, it was simply too long.

Any additional comments?

It's a really good story, with a really strong female protagonist. I highly recommend it.

My favorite in the quartet!

This books moves along at a brisk pace and is so full of action. While the two earlier books seem a little more juvenile, this book tends to have more of the adult feel of Tamora Pierce's later novels. There is a decent amount of humor and fun to be had, as well as lots of character development and story.

The narrator's performance is very good and moves at a brisk pace. I also like the voice selections for the different characters.
