Page is the second book in the Protector of the Small Quartet. Kel is back and just as determined to become a knight as she was in the first book.

Keladry is the first woman to openly train as a knight in over a century. Unlike Alanna, she trains openly, in spite of all those who want her to quit and try every method, fair or foul to make it happen.

Unlike the other main characters Tamora has written in the Tortall world: Daine, Alanna and Beka, Keladry has no Gift, just natural talent and determination. LOTS of determination.

Page covers Kel's second through fourth years as a page, so there are a number of big jumps in time. Despite this though, it's filled with details of training and life from disappointments to the joys both great and small.
