The Second Guard

We rated this book:


Tali has just turned thirteen, and now she’s heading off to the Alcazar, a place where second-born children train to be part of the Second Guard, or servants to the Queen. This will bring honor to her family, but Tali finds it very trying because the Endurance Master, Centurio Jaden, pushes them very hard. Although she respects him, she suspects that Jaden is a traitor to the Queen and her country. Then, Tali learns from her sister that there is a traitor, and that she may not be able to trust the Second Guard; everything she thought she knew she now begins to doubt. She has to discover who the traitor is to protect the Queen.

Tali has a very good personality and she only wants what is best for her country. I think that she made a good choice in her friends, because they support her and help her find her way when things get tough, and she doesn’t know who to trust. I liked that this country only takes the second-born children to serve the Queen. It was fun how there are different types of people, like Moon-guilders and Sun-guilders, because each group has its own looks and traditions.
