From the Inside Flap
a boy, Alanna of Trebond becomes a squire -- to none other than the prince of the realm. But Prince Jonathan is much more to Alanna; he is her ally, her best friend, and one of the few who knows that she's really a girl. Now it will take all of Alanna's awesome skill, strength, and growing magical powers to protect him from the mysterious evil sorcerer who is bent on his destruction--and hers!
Here continues the story of Alanna, a young woman bound for glory who is willing to fight against enormous odds for what she believes in.

I had heard that this series `grows' as you go, and that it does. There are a handful of minor oaths in relation to their `gods'. There are battles and skirmishes. Many characters are injured and many die. Some of it gets just a little graphic, but not too bad. There are lots of little `affairs'. A couple of characters start a long-standing love affair. Nothing is ever described, it's just mentioned in passing--a peripheral suggestion. Which brings me to some of the themes offered here: There is a great deal of sorcery. The battles and politics involved are sometimes intense and twisted. Mostly, there's the affair between two unmarried teenagers. It didn't seem to be necessary to the story itself. I think the youngest age I would recommend this to as a remotely clean read would be 16+.

As a few more learn "Alan's" secret, and the "Ordeal" keeps coming closer and closer, Alana must face up to a formidable enemy. She must win this battle, for the stakes have never been higher. Her majesty's lives, the lives of her dearest friends, and her own hang in the balance!
This author is awesome at getting characters just right! They are interesting, and you feel you really are getting to "know" them.
If you've read this far, you can see why I love this series so much. If you haven't...what are you waiting for? ; )
P.S. this is something like my 4th or 5th time rereading this series. I love it that much. I'm 27 now, and I was about 11 when I first read it.
