SF Signal has just featured a beautiful new review of Elizabeth Moon‘s classic epic fantasy trilogy, The Deed of Paksenarrion. For long-time fans and those just discovering Elizabeth Moon, this feature provides a great overview of what makes this trilogy so enduring and captivating. Here’s a small sample of the extensive review:
“For my reading sensibilities, the omnibus / trilogy that is The Deed of Paksenarrion just simply worked on every level a story should work: believable characters, consistency in the world shown in the story, and strong narrative pull, among others. It stands out not just because it is a Military Fantasy written by a woman about a woman protagonist, but mainly because it is a terrific and engaging story.”
Twenty-five years after the release of The Sheepfarmer’s Daughter (the first book in the trilogy and a Compton Crook Award-winning debut), Moon’s classic series continues to delight new readers. The trilogy is available in beautiful omnibus editions from Baen in the US and Orbit in the UK, so if you haven’t yet picked up The Deed of Paksenarrion, now is the perfect time!
