Lady Knight

"Keladry of Mindelan has finally achieved her lifelong dream of becoming a knight—but it’s not quite what she imagined. In the midst of a brutal war, Kel has been assigned to oversee a refugee camp. She’s sure it’s because Lord Wyldon still doesn’t see her as equal to the men. Nevertheless, she’s learning the importance of caring for people who have been robbed of their homes, wealth, and self-respect. Perhaps this battle is as important as the war with Scanra? When Kel has a vision of the man behind the horrific killing devices that her friends are fighting without her, will she honor her sworn duty . . . or embark on a quest that could turn the tide of the war?"

I remember reading this and going WHOA once I read Pierce's commentary (afterword?) about how the September 11 attacks affected the plot of this book.

The scene at the end where Wyldon tells Kel that he gave her a bad order and apologizes to her hit me like a ton of bricks when I read it the first time as a young teen. The idea that adults/people in power could a) be wrong, b) recognize that, and c) admit it to the person they wronged blew. my. mind. Wyldon is one of my all-time favorite characters because he’s flawed but he works so hard not to be. I want to be like him.
