Ten years have passed since Alanna of Trebond made it legal for girls to be knights, but Keladry is the first to actually attempt it. The law may be on her side, but that doesn’t mean anyone wants to make it easy for the first-ever girl squire, and many logistics and attitudes haven’t been worked out. What’s more, Alanna can’t show any favoritism, so she doesn’t even get to meet her heroine for the first while. Kel’s story demonstrates the frustrations of anyone trying to break into a job or culture where their “kind” has been banned in the past.
