    Hardcover´ The Paladin eBook ¹ paladin pdf, The Paladin PDFEPUBI wanted to like this book but I just couldn't All I'll say here is I don't exactly feel flattered by Cherryh's view of men in general The old paladin spends half the book considering forcing the heroine to have sex with himfor her own good of course Sheesh Talk about a really tired stereotype I suppose the constant idiocy of the male character in this novel is to show the fem

    Hardcover´ The Paladin eBook ¹ paladin pdf, The Paladin PDFEPUBLooking for a night in shining armor a paragon of virtue and flawless character An untarnished hero who is a beacon of light standing against the darkness Look somewhere elseIn a nutshell we have the main character and exiled sword master from a china like fantasy kingdom A peasant girl whose family have been casualties of the political strife in his former kingdom comes to him and demands that he train her so that she can revenge herself on the Lord responsible I don't think that it's really a spoiler to tell you that he does so and that they embark on a uest to get her revenge All fairly standard stuff The entire story is told as a stream of consciousness narrative from the perspective of the aging sword master Shok

    Hardcover´ The Paladin eBook ¹ paladin pdf, The Paladin PDFEPUBI'm of two minds about CJ Cherryh's The Paladin It starts out promisingly with the peasant girl Taizu arriving at the mountain hideaway of Saukendar exiled swordmaster and begging him to teach her to fight Unwillingly he accepts her as a pupil and the first half of the book explores the training and their growing relationship I found this section entirely engrossing It's all from Saukendar's point of view and it's fascinating to watch him reluctantly grow to accept and even care for Taizu and to watch her develop from an untrained girl into a woman warriorThen about halfway through Saukendar and Taizu leave his retreat in order to carry out Taizu's revenge on the Emperor's Regent who despoiled her homeland For me it was all downhill from there The book lost its tight

    Hardcover´ The Paladin eBook ¹ paladin pdf, The Paladin PDFEPUBI forced myself to finish this one because it counts for my WWE Women of Genre Fiction challenge but I wasn't very happy about it This isn't a great introduction to CJ Cherryh's work I think it's a standalone fantasy ish alternate history ish story

  • JBradford

    Hardcover´ The Paladin eBook ¹ paladin pdf, The Paladin PDFEPUBI blush to admit it but I was thinking Andre Norton and her usual coming of age female protagonists when I grabbed this book off the “new book” shelf at the library which is where the librarians put various books on display whether they are new or not Conseuently I was a bit surprised as I got into the book about the slightly risué relationship between the two major figures To tell the truth it had been so long since I had read any of Cherryh’s other books the only one I could think of offhand was Down Below Station that I had forgotten everything except a general feeling of liking for her work I have now refreshed my memory by visiting her very interesting Website however so I do not expect to make that error again and I shall be looking for others of her books that I have not readLet me start by expressing surprise that this has not been made into a mo

    Hardcover´ The Paladin eBook ¹ paladin pdf, The Paladin PDFEPUBCherryh is one of my favourite authors and this is one of my favourites of her many booksIn some ways it's not a typical Cherryh book as some of the usual characteristics of her style are absent or muted most noticeably there's far less emphasis than usual on the internal thought processes of the protagonists Most of her books could never be described as action oriented even the recent volumes in the Foreig


  • David Friedman

    Hardcover´ The Paladin eBook ¹ paladin pdf, The Paladin PDFEPUBI like Cherryh and I think this is her best book It isn't exactly a fantasy since there is no magic although the male protagonist uses other people's belief in magic as he uses every other tool he can find It isn't exactly a historical novel since the author has created her own map and society based on some mix of Chinese and Japanese The male protagonist is a brilliant bitter man who has surrendered long ago—gone into exile to get out of a corrupt political struggle which he cannot win become a hermit Assassins have occasionally been sent to kill him and died—he is very good at killing people Nobody has bothered for a long time since he obviously isn't going to come back and rejoin the gameAnd then a peasant girl shows up demands that he take her as an apprentice and teach her the skills she needs to get revenge on the people who destroyed her village and injured h
