So this is one of my favorite books. Set in a era of Kings and Dukes with some mythical creatures and magic, it definitely take you to another world.
The main character Paksenarion or "Paks" runs away from home and a marriage she doesn't want to join a mercenary company.
From the time she joins to the end of the book there is never a dull moment.
For some one like me that gets attached to ficitional characters, it puts you through the emotional ringer. I would, for sure, recommend this book to anyone that likes fantasy. It's a book I revisit often.
