Complete at Last in a Single Hardcover Volume-the Finest Trilogy of Epic Fantasy in a Decade
Paksenarrion, a simple sheepfarmer's daughter, yearns for a life of adventure and glory, such as was known to heroes in songs and story. At age seventeen she runs away from home to join a mercenary company and begins her epic life . . . Book One: Paks is trained as a mercenary, blooded, and introduced to the life of a soldier . . . and to the followers of Gird, the soldier's god. Book Two: Paks leaves the Duke's company to follow the path of Gird alone-and on her lonely quests encounters the other sentient races of her world. Book Three: Paks the warrior must learn to live with Paks the human. She undertakes a holy quest for a lost elven prince that brings the gods' wrath down on her and tests her very limits.

Have read this book several time and each time came away with satisfaction of a story well written.
A fantastic tale of the true meaning of courage
I first encountered these books as they were being written, and have loved them, and re read them, ever since. Readers new to the story don’t know how lucky they are to read them all together. I remember more than a year of impatient longing after the end of the second book waiting for the third to be published.
Highly recommended to any and all.
Excellent Fantasy Fiction!
When I came across the trilogy by Elizabeth Moon, "Deed of Paksenarian," I'd never read anything by the author before. Now I'm looking forward to, and counting the pennies to, read all of her books, especially the Eight Kingdom ones. I was hooked and sucked into the story of Paksenarian, Paks for short, within the first paragraph! She goes from a young, eager girl who knows little of the world, but wants to be a soldier, and maybe someday a hero, a paladin who helps the helpless. Through three well-written books, we go with Paks as she learns just what a hero is, what it means to be chosen to help the helpless. I found this a moving tale, one of my all-time favorites!
