I have to admit that I didn't immediately fall in love with this series of Tammy's for some reason, but on every re-read I just end up more head-over-heels with both Kel and her story to the point where I'm really not sure why it didn't click with me the first time; all I know is that now I absolutely adore it and by now I've read it almost as many times as I have the Immortals despite that earlier quartet's head-start. The writing prowess demonstrated has leaped ahead compared to Tammy's by-no-means-paltry talents displayed in the first two Tortall series, part of which must doubtless be attributed to the fact that she's got so much more room in these books to let the story read since the page-count-limits of YA fiction were greatly loosened by this time--and I could kiss J.K.Rowling's feet every day for that result alone, because the Protector of the Small quartet is glorious! The book manages to be both action-packed and thoughtful both in terms of its plot(s) and its heroine; Kel never backs down from a fight but she also insists on thinking things through. She's a wonderful student and a wonderful mentor at the same time, and watching her grow into herself is as fascinating as the burgeoning war, royal marriage, and social upheavals that serve as the foundation of the plot. And then there's the societal aspects, both in terms of Tortall (how has the world changed because Alanna is a knight? what other social changes have Thayet and Jon attempted since taking the crown? what happens when the culture and citizens of the Japan-like Yamani Islands meet the Western European-style kingdom of Tortall?) and our own world. Unfortunately many of the problems that Kel faces as the first known female page in centuries are all-too-realistic and common in our "more modern" world as well, and neither Tammy nor Kel hesitate to address how wrong these things are, whether they impact Kel directly or through her friends. This series tackles weighty issues like sexism, bullying, classism, poverty, crime, and the injustice of law head-on, all while never once sacrificing the suspense and delight of the story itself. I could not possibly love these books more and I truly believe that they ought to be required reading for every girl coming of age--and for every boy, genderqueer kid, and grown-up for that matter! It's never too late to learn, as some of those who initially balk at Kel discover, and the lessons of this quartet are as important as the story itself is engrossing. I'd give it six stars if I could.
This is the third book in the Protector series that I've read by Tamora Pierce. I believe I started Book One about a week ago, and I have RIPPED through these books. Why? Well first of all they are well written. The story is like butter. It's so smooth you just fall right in. Second... and I may not even do it justice... Pierce has captured a character and a story in ways I have rarely seen before. I liked the main character right off. Within just a few pages of her story I was on her side, routing for her, identifying with her and wanting to see her succeed. Through the series of ups and downs, twists and turns that followed, this only intensified. I'm so impressed by this author and these books that I fully intend to buy and read everything Pierce has ever written. I wish I'd found her sooner, but at the same time I'm glad it took so long so that there's a nice backlog of books that I can look forward to! :D All five stars, for sure. If there were bonus stars, I'd give them. One of my top three in great authors and great reads. Oh yeah. It's that good.
I would never make it through page training — I'm more like Neal, questioning rather than obedient, and not always knowing when to be silent — but young Keladry's stoic determination and her idealistic crusade against cruel bullying in the guise of hazing tradition make her an admirable role model for young people, and her story a gripping read right from the beginning. Her fear of heights is a sympathetic weakness to make her fallibly human, and give her an internal obstacle as well as those imposed by closed-minded opponents.

Naturally, Tamora Pierce's writing quality is high, yet quickly readable.

N.b., the story ends at 93%, followed by a character list for the series, a "glossary" of not just terminology but also places and other proper nouns, then two short excerpts (from the second book in Kel's quartet, Page, and the long-awaited first prequel tale of Numair's youth, Tempests and Slaughter).
