My book review is on a book by Tamora Pierce Protector of The Small First Test The setting in time for this book would be approximately around 450 BC As the time goes back pretty far it is hard to determine the setting in place but provided with the maps in the book I would estimate it is in the US around the California Bay Area region which is quite a coincidence First Test is the story of Keladry of Mindelan better known as Kel It begins in the middle of a disputation The fight is over a certain law that states that girls can earn their shield right along with the boys The problem is that Kel wants to test the law but a certain teacher Lord Wyldon who happens to be against it is threatening to resign if the King allows it to actually happen As a compromise Kel can give it a shot but only if the first year is a probationary term and the person to decide in the end whether Kel stays or leaves is in the hands of Lord Wyldon himself When Kel goes to Corus the capital of Tortall to become a page everyone makes fun of her and tells her that girls dont have the right to become knights even though a few years ago another lady had successfully earned her shield but people assumed she only did so because of having the Gift of healing Kel is also not allowed to seek Alanna the first lady knight for advice since people think she might be bewitched and succeed by Alannas assistance She befriends Nealan of Queenscove Prince Roald and many others who all eventually believe she can accomplish whatever they can She goes through many ups and downs through this year and many test her patience but determined as a mule she succeeds and is permitted to stay back and continue her tasks as a page
