READ THIS BOOK!

EVERY PERSON in my family owns a copy of this book. My daughter keeps a copy in her car, to pick up and read when waiting. My son read the entire book aloud to a friend with dyslexia in high school.

I bought it based on the recommendation of a friend with military experience, since as a marine, the author has a good feel for what running away to join the army really feels like.

At its best in the early going: coming-of-age, boot-camp experience, discovering the world, experiencing defeat and victory. Less successful with later fantasy elements--nods in the direction of elves, dwarves and gnomes, ignoring opportunities for Paks to explore other races. Always disappointing to find plot action and character development diminish to mere conversation.

Loved it, bought it. Bought the sequels. It's very long (a trilogy in one) and some of the battle scenes were slightly tiresome, but the characters were great. A saga in the true sense of the word.

"A real paladin, she told herself, wouldn't be fooled by a demon horse. So either it's not a demon horse, or I'm not a real paladin, and whichever it is or I am, I'm going to have one glorious ride."
-The Deed of Paksenarrion, pg. 819, (bk. 3, Oath of Gold)
