Once a sheepfarmer's daughter, now a seasoned veteran. Paksenarrion has proven herself a fighter. Years with Duke Phelan's Company taught her weaponry, discipline, and how to react as part of a military unit.

Now, though, Paks feels spurred to a solitary destiny. Against all odds she is accepted as a paladin-candidate by the Fellowship of Gird. Years of study will follow, for a paladin must be versed in diplomacy and magic as well as the fighting arts. But before she is fully trained. Paks is called to her first mission: to seek out the fabled stronghold of Luap far to the west. The way is long, the dangers many -- and not even the Marshal-General of Gird can say whether glory or ruin awaits.

Review: Divided Allegiance (Paksenarrion #4)

User Review  - Goodreads

This is now 1 of three books where I abandoned all discipline and burned through all 17 hours of audio in under two days. Ms. Moon goes well beyond spinning characters you really care about. But by the end of Book 3 there is a growing understanding of the essential role extreme hardship plays. Read full review
