Book Description

1 Sep 1996
Moon's The Deed of Paksennarion has been a blockbuster success in Baen's one-volume trade paper edition--and now the trilogy has a companion. The Legacy of Gird tells of Gird, the liberator, who teaches his people that they can fight--and win--against their Mage-born rulers, and Luap, Gird's sworn follower, who dares not lie and cannot tell the truth--nor face the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost as good as Deed of Paksennarion 5 Dec 2000
I loved the book because it gave more information on Gird and how he became the legendary hero that Paksannerion followed. I am looking for the second of The Legacy of Gird books so that I can find out more about Luap. My only disappointment was that it wasn't written quite as well as Deed of Paksennarion but I was still unable to put it down very often and read it in just a day or two.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful - to be avoided 2 April 2009
As a massive fan of 'The Deed of Paks...' I was very excited to find this book, unfortunately I was sorely disappointed. I wish that someone had told me not to bother with this book, hence this review. The book basically fills in how 'Gird' rose up to become such an influencial figure in his time. I found the book mechanical, unwieldy and cumbersome, and actually really boring. I had to force myself to read it and if it hadn't been written by this author I would have given up long before the end. When I finally finished it all I could think was what a waste of both mine and the author's time. If you have read 'The deed of Paks...' then DO NOT bother reading this book, and if you haven't read 'the deed' then get out there and buy it and DEFINITELY don't read this book!

This book certainly lived up to the standard Moon achieved in her previous book. I thouroughly enjoyed it for it's action and the obvious research done into historical fact. The feudal farming system was well researched and well described. While Gird as a hero was believable and able to be sympathized with, Luap was very difficult to identify with. I suspect that this was Ms Moon's intent. The problem was that I was left not caring what happened to him. Nevertheless I read the book in one trans-atlantic flight and one extra day, unable to put it down. I am not sure I agree that The Deed must be read first, although I did read the books in that order. Both books are excellent and anyone who enjoys good writing and an exciting fantasy should give them a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worthy successor to the Deed of Paks 27 July 1997
By A Customer
Ms. Moon is filling in the history of her wonderful world in this book. It plods on at certain moments unlike the Deed but that is to be expected given that it is largely a history and basis for all her other works concerning this world. And what would you call her world? Aarenis and Aare are parts of it, but the whole doesnt have a convenient label like Middle-Earth! Maybe that is why I love it so much; you can't quite put your finger on this author's creation but in many respects it is more tangible and graphic than Tolkien. And at certain moments it is as powerful (and from a die hard Middle-Earth-in -the-process-of-rereading-Tolkien-for-the-umpteenth-time fan, she is the absolute best fantasy writer today)

Unfortunately I read this book over a year ago and can't comment on the striking details that distinguished it, but I remember putting it down with satisfaction because it filled in gaps left from the Deed and answered most of the remaining questions I had. More disturbing (for I first discovered Moon early summer 96) I realised she could turn out to be another Tolkien: an author that captivates me in my favorite genre of idealistic fantasy but only writes a handful of works! I dont want to be stranded again! What I would give for Tolkien to have written a couple more trilogies or about the 4th age..

So please Ms. Moon, I beg you, write! You are so rare and precious and are probably as appreciated by the Tolkien fans that have read you as I am, but you have only written 5 books (3 part of a trilogy!) about Paks' world! Remember, it took over a decade before Tolkien achieved mass appeal, so he didnt have that immediate feedback (I might have read somthing about fantasy not being as popular during the 40s, but I am not sure).
