Though a girl, Alanna has always craved the adventure and daring only for boys; her twin brother, Thom, yearns to learn the art of magic. So one day they decide to switch places: Thom heads to the convent to learn magic; Alanna, pretending to be a boy, in on her way to the castle of King Roald to begin her training as a page. But the road to knighthood is not an easy one. As Alanna masters the skills necessary for battle, she must also learn to control her heart and to discern her enemies from her allies.

Alanna and Thom take matters into their own hands. The twins switch places, and Thom goes to the temple where Alanna was to go, planning to study sorcery. Alanna cuts her hair and disguises herself with the name Alan of Trebond and goes to Corus to try for knighthood. Alanna makes both friends and enemies at the palace immediately. However, he manages to convince her to stay. After a time, an unnatural fever, one that drains healers of their power and can kill them, falls upon Corus. Alanna uses her magic to save Jonathan.

For a reason unbeknownst to her, Alanna hates the outwardly handsome and charming man from their first meeting. She suspects that Roger sent the fever and is trying to hurt Jon. Alanna acquires, on a mystery-filled trip to ruins near the home of Myles of Olau , a sword possessing the magic of the Old Ones that she dubs " Lightning ". Roger is shocked and noticeably nervous when he notices the sword.

Later, on a trip that is supposed to be for squires only, that Alanna is allowed on because of Jonathan, Roger warns the squires and page not to go anywhere near a city of black stone, the Black City. Alanna realizes that Roger means to trick Jon into going there and follows the Prince to the city. There, the two confront the Ysandir, strange beings of old who try to kill them.

The book closes with the prince promising to make Alanna his squire.
