5.0 out of 5 stars Oath of Gold, 1 Mar. 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Oath Of Gold (Deed of Paksenarrion) (Mass Market Paperback)
This third and final installment in the trilogy "The Deed of Paksenarrion" is certainly as good or better than the other two.
Paksenarrion is a craven coward in her own mind in the beginning of this book. Through the help of the Kuakgan Oakhollow, the wounds (both physical and mental) from her bout with the Kuaknom are healed. But Paksenarrion needs to find confidence in her own abilities and she joins the Rangers of Lyonya for the summer. She finds sides with herself that she did not know that she had. In returning to the Kuakgan at the end of summer Paksenarrion is called as a paladin for all gods and has gifts endowed to her. Her first calling sends her back to the Duke and during her stay she uncovers great evil. Her second calling takes her to the kingdom of Lyonya and there she finds that the kingdom will soon be without either king or queen. Her calling is to find the king that was lost as a child.
There is no doubt that Paksenarrion has changed a great deal from the frightened person at the beginning of the book. Having had these fears enables her to understand the common folk, for most people have to live their lives without knowing what will happen next. Some of Paksenarrion's challenges in this book are a bit unbelievable, but that is the way of fantasy. An exaggeration of certain points can bring a message accross.
I certainly enjoyed this book. Fantasy wraps philosophical and religious questions in an interesting package - unlike my earlier textbooks at university.
Enjoy.
