    "Strong female heroine"

    This is my favorite book. I am so glad it is on Audible. Fell in love with it as a pre-teen. A must read for young women. The narrator does an excellent job with the different characters and accents. This is the 3rd book in The Deed of Paksenarrion trilogy by Elizabeth Moon. :)

    "one of my all time favorites"

    I can not count how many times I have re-read this series. I started reading it when it was first published. since then I had worn out 2ea of the individual books and 3 of the trade. I travel a lot now so I went with the audiobook of all three, unfortunately I had them all finished before half the week was through. I always felt there were some inconsistencies within the world she had created but it has always been a great story. I always know what was to be on the next page or chapter but get caught up in it and can't skip a word. Can't wait to turn the page.

    "Lots of action"

    story really gets put together in this one. Lots of characters to keep track of with similar names plus a lack of any romance at all, gives this 4 stars from me.

    "An Amazingly Detailed and Richly Written Story!"
    What made the experience of listening to Oath of Gold the most enjoyable?

    Character and story development


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Oath of Gold?

    Pak's self discovery.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Pak's transcendence during torture


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Pak's ability to forgive and reconcile as she led the Gird's militia.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the third book of a classic series. Elizabeth Moon has done the best job in my extensive reading and listening experience of expanding the Tolkienian universe and has lent it depth beyond even the writings of Tolkien! The deep wisdom and experience she imparts in this book come as a result of her experiences as a Marine officer and her history with horses and blades. She has brought that hard-edged experience into the soft, academic world of Tolkien and the nitty-gritty reality evoked makes the story come alive.

    Story
    "Not my favorite, but still very good"

    Not sure why she felt the need to go into such detail on the torture or why she spent so long on it. After about 20 minutes, with no end in sight, I ended up fast-forwarding through about 15 more minutes of a torturous depiction of torture. As far as the narrator, I think she did well, but I didn't like her interpretation of the elven voices in any of the books.
