Keladry has finally worked her way through her page training, despite the opposition from traditional members of the court, and some of her fellow pages. She is now a Squire, but no knight has come forward to be her sponsor, or Knight-Master. Is she to be stuck at the palace doing desk-work for ever? She's not sure she can stand it-she's spent her years of training preparing to fight, not to be a secretary. A spine-chilling fantasy that has its roots in the real world and real relationships.

Keladry of Mindelan has finally become a squire, defying all those who did their best to force her out. She isn't home-free, however. She worries about who will be willing to take her on, and she still hasn't outgrown her tendency for gathering strays, but this time, with the stray in question being a baby griffin, the risks may outweigh the benefits.
Squire is a wonderful continuation of Keladry's story; as she advances towards adulthood (and knighthood) it becomes obvious to everyone around her that she has the beginning spark of the ability to command. It is such a pleasure to read this story of a girl who keeps her head in the most terrifying situations and has the makings of a leader.
Also, "Squire" finally gives Kel a slightly larger story arch than merely gaining her knighthood. Tortall is edging towards war with their northern neighbors, but there is something different behind their enemy this time. Something larger, and more heartless than mere material greed.
This is a roundly satisfying installation in this quartet of books, and I definitely recommend it to fans of Pierce and to "girls who do things".
