I really enjoyed listening to this book. It was an unusual book for me - I am not accustomed to reading about a female military heroine - even so, I w..Show More »as not disappointed. After reading this book, I had to find out what happened and eventually finished listening to the series. I was not disappointed I did that.
If you are looking for a new series, this might interest you.
Other books you may like: The Chronicles of Amber (apparently an old series, but I just read it for the first time and loved it), the Riftwar saga by Raymond E. Feist (not on Audible yet, but worth reading), and Trudi Canavan's Black Magician series.
This is assuming you have already read Jim Butcher's Codex Alera series, Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn series, his Elantris stand alone book, The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan, and G. R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series (Beware - no one is sure when this series will be completed). If you haven't read this list, start with these ones.
If you have completed the above list, you might like Peter V Brett's Painted Man/Warded Man series, the Night Angel trilogy by Brent Weeks, Robin Hobb's Soldier Son trilogy, her Tawny man Series, or her Farseer trilogy.
I enjoyed all of the above series. Some of them were more enjoyable that others, so, please read other reviewers to see if they would be a good fit for you.
If there was a series you enjoyed, please share it. Thanks.

Definitely would not use this narrator again. Will not seek out books read by her.
Add Paksenarrion (an elfin name) to the pantheon of my heroes. In my review of Sheep Farmer's Daughter, Book 1 of The trilogy Deed Of Paksenarrion, I..Show More » marveled at Moon's treatment of military issues and her integration of men and women in positions of leadership and of lesser rank. As I read the trilogy, Paks grew on me. I still feel that more character development a la George R. R. Martin and Terry Goodkind, would have fmade the trilogy a richer experience. This said, the trilogy is all about Paks, a remarkably human hero. I was in continual suspense about her fate until near the very end. But Moon does not kill off characters as Martin does. Instead, Moon wraps a gripping and at times spell binding tale around the development of her lead character, Paksenarrion Dorfan's Daughter. A well done first trilogy, in my opinion I am richer for having read it.
