    Intriguing start

    This first book hints at the promise of a great series. The feel of this book is entirely like that of a prologue, what I mean is that the entire books seems like it is setting up something for later. The story itself is actually a bit slow as the entire purpose seems to be to introduce and develop the main character, Paks (aka Paksenarrion). Yes there are some battles, but they are almost glossed over and at no time does it really seem that Paks is in any REAL danger, probably because at the start of the book we learn that the entire book is a memoir of some sort. So who is Paks? Well, Paks is/was(?) a person who achieved some sort of greatness, exactly what and how she achieved that greatness is apparently the content of this series. I don't want to give too much away, the mystery of whom and what Paks becomes is central to the enticement of the novel. I fear if I tell you my suspicions, it will diminish some of the pleasure you may feel reading the novel.

    Overall this book kept my attention and I looking forward to book 2. To be honest it failed to REALLY grab me, and if the second book continues in this way I can see myself becoming bored. But, if it fulfills the promise foreshadowed in this book the series might be fantastic.

    Written book translates to excellent audio book

    I read this book when it was first released in 1988. When my husband and I started collecting audio book titles we searched for books that we had once enjoyed reading. We had been looking for The Deed of Paksenarrion ever since we started listening to audio books about a decade ago. This had been one title that had been overlooked for conversion to the audio book format. When it finally came out I snapped it up from Audible.com and I have not regretted it.

    Narration: I have been unhappy with some of Jennifer Van Dyck's narrations in the past, mostly when she followed a favored narrator in a series and didn't check previous pronunciations. This time she is coming into the series fresh and has made it her own. I think she has done an exceptional job of making the Paksenarrion tales come to life and have thoroughly enjoyed listening to the book that I enjoyed reading many years ago. Kudos to Ms. Van Dyck for her performance in the Paksenarrion titles.

    Paksenarrion brings to mind an epic journey similar to The Obsidian Trilogy by Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory, or The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan, only not as lengthy. Alas, I sometimes wish that it were longer, or that Elizabeth Moon were a more prolific writer. Though what she does produce is always worth the time to peruse.

    For lovers of the fantasy genre you can't go wrong with any of the Paksenarrion books.

    Now if the publishers would go back a bit further and include "Liar's Oath" and "Surrender None" and you would have the complete world from which Paksenarrion comes. "Liar's Oath" and "Surrender None" predate Paksenarrion and explain St. Gird and his assistant Luap and the formation of the Fellowship of Gird.

    Enjoyable Listen!

    I really enjoyed listening to this book. It was an unusual book for me - I am not accustomed to reading about a female military heroine - even so, I was not disappointed. After reading this book, I had to find out what happened and eventually finished listening to the series. I was not disappointed I did that.

    If you are looking for a new series, this might interest you.

    Other books you may like: The Chronicles of Amber (apparently an old series, but I just read it for the first time and loved it), the Riftwar saga by Raymond E. Feist (not on Audible yet, but worth reading), and Trudi Canavan's Black Magician series.

    This is assuming you have already read Jim Butcher's Codex Alera series, Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn series, his Elantris stand alone book, The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan, and G. R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series (Beware - no one is sure when this series will be completed). If you haven't read this list, start with these ones.

    If you have completed the above list, you might like Peter V Brett's Painted Man/Warded Man series, the Night Angel trilogy by Brent Weeks, Robin Hobb's Soldier Son trilogy, her Tawny man Series, or her Farseer trilogy.

    I enjoyed all of the above series. Some of them were more enjoyable that others, so, please read other reviewers to see if they would be a good fit for you.

    If there was a series you enjoyed, please share it. Thanks.

    30 years old & still my favorite

    This book was one of the first fantasy books I ever read, in 1988 shortly after release. It was one of my first audible purchases because Paks adventure is one that I revisit regularly.

    It is a good vs evil, military recruit, hero’s journey. Ms. Moon presents a feminist utopia, where men & women serve together with mutual respect as professionals and as people. I love this book, so I knew my review would reflect my 30 years’ acquaintance with it, and maybe it doesn’t work for todays audiences. I don’t know.

    But Paksenarrion Dorthansdotter is a hero to embrace.

    Finally in Audio Format!!!

    I remember first reading this book over a decade ago, and I fell in love with this series. A must read in my opinion if you like high fantasy and believe there is good in the world, all 3 in the series is phenomenal. The narrator is also a good choice, I did enjoy listening to her as her other narrations (Mystic & Rider by Sharon Shinn).

    Fantasy's Red Badge Of Courage

    SFD starts like just an unusual fictional period piece. It does not take long, however, to see the diamond in the rough in Elizabeth Moon's heroine Paksanarrion. Set in the "usual" medieval fantasy setting, this book is like other fantasies as Tarzan might have been to Jane Goodall. Paksa is an ordinary soldier - a woman no less. This most unusual book chronicles her initiation and trials as a warrior in a style unusual to fantasy. The story is told from the soldier's POV, not the POV of rulers and generals. Depiction of Paks' evolution as a soldier employs military strategy as a backdrop - quite convincing. I gfound myself sneaking reads between checks on my work. The definition of a good book? Can't put it down. I rated it 4 because I thought that character development and application of psychology could have been stronger. That said, it's Moon's first book. Very promising indeed. Try it for new flavor in fantasy.

    Grand high fantasy

    This is the style that brought me to the high fantasy genre. A fantasy world with depth and nuance, making subtle moral comments on the real world. I had previously not read any of Moon's work, though I have long intended to read the Planet Pirates series she co-authored with Anne McCaffrey. I was reminded of some of my favourite Mercedes Lackey novels while listening to this. Not in detail, but in overall feel. A great book, and I'm looking forward to continuing the series.

    Jennifer Van Dyck's narration is excellent, well paced and lively, with distinct character voices and emotion where needed. Really brings the book to life.

    Without character

    If you enjoy endless battles, war tactics, skirmishes, maneuvers, body counts and just war time in general, you will enjoy this book. The soldiers and their naming is tedious. There is no real character development, or story other than moving from battle to battle. For sure I will not continue this series.

    really REALLY enjoy this story

    i really did read the books 3 times, And have listened to the Deed of Pakanarion once a year since the audiobook became available.

    its a real kick to read the beginning knowing the end and appreciate the long vision of a great story teller that Eluzsberh Moon is.

    Fesselnde Story - Sprecherin sehr angenehm - Suchtfaktor hoch

    Als Fantasy-Fan bin ich "ohne Vorkenntnisse" über dieses Hörbuch gestolpert und war äußerst positiv überrascht!

    Neben den "üblichen Bausteinen" einer Fantasy-Story (Elfen, Orks, Zwerge, Gnome etc.) und natürlich dem Thema "Gut gegen Böse" fand ich diese Geschichte erfrischend wenig schwarz-weiß gezeichnet sonder mit vielen Schattierungen von "grau"; die Hauptfigur Paksenarrion ist nicht immer gut, gewinnt nicht immer und ist nicht einmal immer sympathisch; dennoch (oder vielleicht gerade deswegen) wurde ich gefesselt von der Entwicklung dieser Rolle.

    Beschrieben wird die Entwicklung eines Farmer-Mädchens zu einer Kämpferin in einer Söldner-Armee (in diesem Teil geht es sehr viel um die Waffenausbildung, das Camp-Leben, Strategien und Kämpfe - eigentlich nicht so mein Thema aber es wurde keinen Moment langweilig), die neben den Waffenkünsten auch ihre eigene Persönlichkeit entwickelt, ihre Loyalität hinterfragen muß und letztendlich eine Entscheidung über ihren weiteren Lebensweg trifft.

    Neben der fesselnden Geschichte ist auch die Sprecherin in meinen Ohren äußerst angenehmm und vielseitig und gibt damit der Geschichte noch einen zusätzlichen Reiz.

    Als letzte Anmerkung: Suchtfaktor hoch!
    Normalerweise komme ich mit meinen monatlichen Abo-Büchern gut klar, diesmal konnte ich nicht abwarten den nächsten Teil der Geschichte zu hören und habe mir den 2. Teil (Divided Allegiance) sozusagen außerhalb der Reihe gekauft ... den ich genauso verschlungen habe wie Teil 1 und gerade habe ich direkt im Anschluß Teil 3 (Oath of Gold) begonnen.
