Another great addition to this series. I like how one book does not cover a year, but many years. I liked seeing how Alanna's relationship with George and Jonathan changed over this time period and that Alanna was able to wear a dress on occasion. I was surprised at the quickness Alanna decides to sleep with Jon. Most of the YA books nowadays debate it, talk about it and fight it to build up plot tension, but since this was written 30 or so years ago it doesn't follow the pattern. It wasn't the main focus of the book like current YA novels seem to be with some action thrown in. I loved the cat and I am happy to see Alanna finally knighted.
