In the Hand of the Goddess by Tamora Pierce

The adventure continues in the second book of the Song of the Lioness quartet. Alanna is now a squire to Prince Jonathan and is finishing her years at the palace. She must learn to face the three things she most fears - the Ordeal of Knighthood, love, and the Duke of Conté. She knows that it is only a matter of time before she has to face her fears and face what is to come.

Alanna is one of the best fencers at court and has caught the attention of not one but two of the men who know her secret. As her last years as a squire pass, she receives her first kiss and learns to love. She even learns how to be a lady by taking lessons from Mistress Cooper, The Rouge's (George) mother.

This book is filled with as much adventure, excitement, and even more romance than the previous book in the series. The same old characters are just as lovable as before and the new characters readers will love to hate. The book is written in the same style as the last (third person) with a bit more of other characters besides Alanna. Readers will love this book as much as the first and will want to read it over and over again.
