Lady Knight by Tamora Pierce

The seven-foot-tall devices stood motionless in a half-circle as the light uncovered what lay at their feet, a pile of freshly dead children.”

Kel has made it; finally she is a Lady Knight – as the title suggests. Her first assignment isn’t quite the battle she’d been looking for. Her exceptional organisational skills are put to the test as she’s given command of a massive refugee camp. Don’t let that fool you; don’t think that she has been put out to pasture. Oh No, Kel has plenty of adventure afoot.

There will be deadly killing machine attacks, a mysterious mage who seems impossible to track, not to mention his seven foot tall henchman. Children will be slaughtered, a young orphan boy will be rescued and prove to be an excellent servant, the Scanran War will wage, Animals will take on human traits and Kel will fulfil her destiny as a true Lady Knight. 

Prepare for an adventure behind enemy lines and for most of your unanswered questions to be resolved. You’ll enjoy the drama, the adventure, the camaraderie, the strange creatures and the benefits of griffin feathers. The only drawback here is that this is the last in the series. I will miss you Kelandry, let’s hope your romantic prospects improve.

5 out of 5 - sometimes its hard to be a woman
