    What an adventure!!!

    I read these for the first time over 15 years ago. I fell in love with the adventure that Paksenarrion endures. I laugh, I cry and most of all I read it over and over to experience the trials of her life. I highly reccomend it. Read all three, and buy them aall at the same time because once you start you wont be able to put them down!

    Historic Entertainment

    This book is interesting. At first you thing that its just going to be another fantasy voyage with your regular elves, wars and stuff, but it has just the right touch of fantasy to keep one interested, but enough historical accuracy to connvey the medievil feeling of warring warlords, taking a bath every few days, and the belief in the unknown. its really sweet. The only thing that stops me from giving it 5 stars is that at the end it gets a little redundant, and you don't want the book to end b/c its like a 1100 pages, but therer is no real story going on. The stuff in book 2 makes you want to cry too. I liked it
