All Paks wanted to be was a soldier. So she ran away from home and joined a mercenary group famed for its honor and honesty. The story does start off slow, but is intriguing. The first half of the book deals with Paks's training and the daily life of a common solider. It is not fun and games (and be warned that liked characters do die). There are few hints of magic that is found in most fantasy. The second half is where the story begins to take off, showing that there is more to Paks than she believes. Ms. Moon does a good job of drawing the reader in, despite the slow beginning. Good for those wanting to break into the fantasy genre.
