Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent series! The second book in the Protector of the Small series, Page follows Kel after her probationary year, through the trials of her next 3 years as a page. As always, Pierce's book is well-written, with fast-paced action, a strong and independent heroine, themes of feminism and justice, and a cast of great characters. Kel is a great comparison to Alanna from The Song of the Lioness series, in that both women seek to become knights (a male-only career), but they do so through different paths, with different challenges to overcome. Honestly, I feel like Kel is more well-rounded than Alanna, who struggled a lot with her femininity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Page Kel is an insperational character who faces hardships that she has no say about, but she gets herself a say. Rather than just sitting and sewing like a 'proper' lady, she trains to become a knight. Even through all the discouragement, she still tries. Just because she's a girl doesn't mean she's weak. In this book she proves that girls are completely capable of doing anything. No matter what people said about her being more emotional, easier to frighten, and plain and simply weaker, she doesn't let it stop her, or make her stop soing her very, very best. From the start of the book, saving a dog, to the middle, saving a group of pages around her age form bandits, to the end, saving her maid from falling of Baylor's Needle, she proves herself as the protector of the small. It seems like no one can prevent her from accomplishing her dream. I would definately recommend this book to readers who like magic mixed with hardships. This book mixes the two perfectly. It is one of the best books I have ever read. It definately proves what people can handle, that everyone deserves equal rights, and what self-esteem and self-confidence can accomplish. I hope that if you have read it, that you enjoyed it, and that if you haven't read it yet, that you do and enjoy doing so. Everyone deserves a good book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Wonderful Book! I found that Tamora Pierce's second book in the "Protector of the Small" series was wonderful. It was an inspiring novel that talked about friendship and relationships, plus the hardships that some endure in order to overcome the barrier that has been set on them due to their sex. "Squire" was a wonderful follow up to the first book in the series, "First Test". This series is looking to be a quartet of books that equals if not surpasses both of Tamora Pierce's first two series, the popular "Song of the Lioness" and not so well-known "Circle of Magic".
