    "Great Finish to a Great Trilogy"

    Book One was fabulous! Book Two slacked off a little, but was necessary in context to the trials Paksenarrion had to go through to blossom into the Paladin she was meant to be in Book Three. The last installment was the best of the three. I was so glad I took the leap on this Audible series. I loved it so much I bought a NEW COPY of the book to add to my permanent library. This trilogy has become my all time favorite!! Jennifer Van Dyck was a pleasure to listen to the whole way through. She definitely was able to differentiate between different charactors and had a pace and timbre that made it easy to follow along and enjoy. GET ALL THREE BOOKS! This series is a keeper .....

    "In the tradition of heroes"

    Add Paksenarrion (an elfin name) to the pantheon of my heroes. In my review of Sheep Farmer's Daughter, Book 1 of The trilogy Deed Of Paksenarrion, I marveled at Moon's treatment of military issues and her integration of men and women in positions of leadership and of lesser rank. As I read the trilogy, Paks grew on me. I still feel that more character development a la George R. R. Martin and Terry Goodkind, would have fmade the trilogy a richer experience. This said, the trilogy is all about Paks, a remarkably human hero. I was in continual suspense about her fate until near the very end. But Moon does not kill off characters as Martin does. Instead, Moon wraps a gripping and at times spell binding tale around the development of her lead character, Paksenarrion Dorfan's Daughter. A well done first trilogy, in my opinion I am richer for having read it.

    "A Truly Epic Ending"

    This tale has a true epic ending. In some was Paksenarrion may be the best example of a Paladin I've ever had the luck to read of in any Fantasy tale. This story should not be missed.

    "Getting to like the Narrator better"

    By all account this is the most exciting of the books. There is more growth of all the characters an enough fighting and intrigue to keep you interested. I would recommend.

    Story
    "Paksenarrion endures"

    By the end of Divided Allegiance, Paksenarrion had become afraid of just about everything. The healing that the Gird Marshals evoked upon Paks rid her of the taint, but took away her courage. In this book, Paks gains further healing from Master Oakhallow and is finally able to continue her calling. Now she understands what it is like to be literally scared stiff. Her trials give her new compassion and strength.

    She receives a red Paladin horse from the gods and he seems to sometimes direct her quests. Paks discovers the true heir King to Lyonya, makes an ultimate sacrifice that she amazingly survives and makes sure the Lyonyan king is able to be accepted to rule.

    I have enjoyed the three audio books that are "The Deed of Paksenarrion." Sheepfarmer's Daughter, Divided Allegiance, and Oath of Gold.

    Jennifer Van Dyck has brought life to the books that have been our family favorites since they were released in 1988 and '89.

    Fans of fantasy genre should thoroughly enjoy the Paksenarrion books. If you are looking for good to triumph over evil, this is the place that has it.

    "Amazing trilogy."

    I can't say anything could have been added to improve this amazing adventure. I am still unsure as to whether the description provided in chapter 27 could have been more with less.

    Thanks for sharing your story.

    "Great Series"

    From book 1 all the way to the end, its a tail of one warrior coming into her own and becoming a tool for justice and right. She faces perals that ever warrior or solider does and shows you how she is able to overcome it all.

    "Strong female heroine"

    This is my favorite book. I am so glad it is on Audible. Fell in love with it as a pre-teen. A must read for young women. The narrator does an excellent job with the different characters and accents. This is the 3rd book in The Deed of Paksenarrion trilogy by Elizabeth Moon. :)
