Disguised as a boy, Alanna of Trebond becomes a squire, to none other than the prince of the realm. But Prince Jonathan is much more to Alanna; he is her ally, her best friend, and one of the few who knows that she's really a girl. Now it will take all of Alanna's awesome skill, strength, and growing magical powers to protect him from the mysterious evil sorcerer who is bent on his destruction, and hers! Here continues the story of Alanna, a young woman bound for glory who is willing to fight against enormous odds for what she believes in.



"A lively, fascinating, tale." ( Booklist)
"Alvarado narrates with enthusiasm and care. One could easily see her performing as a storyteller at a Renaissance fair." ( AudioFile)
"Actress Trini Alvardo perfectly captures the essence of Alanna by giving her the uncertainty of a girl on the verge of womanhood combined with the steel determination and strength of a squire preparing for the battle to become a knight." ( School Library Journal)

successful sequel

Sadly many sequels can't keep up with the original story. But luckily this doesn't apply here. The second part of Alanna's adventures is as amazing as the first one. The reason for this might be the fact that the story about Alanna should originally have been one book, so Tamora Pierce didn't write the sequels out of necessity. They were already there.
In this book Alanna is growing up. She has to learn to deal with her fears to be successful and get her knighthood and there is also the evil mage Roger who is a thread to the Crown.
I'd say we have in this book even more tension than in the first one, because Alanna now mustn't only conceal her sex but has to protect her prince from Roger, too.
Most definitely as worth reading (or rather listening) as the first part.
