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.
