Paksenarrion wasn't planning to submit to an unwelcome marriage and a lifetime of poverty, so she left her village with a plan and her grandfather's sword. And a few weeks later, she was installed as Duke Phelan's newest recruit in a company of soldiers for hire, her arms training about to begin. But when Paks sees combat, she's stabbed with an ensorcelled knife and barely survives. Then the near-misses start mounting up, raising questions about this young fighter. Is she attracting evil because she is a danger to them all? Or is there another reason malignant forces seek her life? Paks will face the spider-minions of the Webmistress Achrya, orcs and the corrupted men who serve blood mage Liart, Master of Torments. She will also earn the gratitude of elves and of her Duke. And through conflict she will learn she has powers of her own and a destiny. To become a gods-chosen Paladin of Gird, and a target for the ultimate torture.

Paksenarrion - Paks for short - was somebody special. Never could she have followed her father's orders and married the pigfarmer down the road. Better a soldier's life than a pigfarmer's wife, and so though she knew that she could never go home again, Paks ran away to be a soldier. And so began an adventure destined to transform a simple Sheepfarmer's Daughter into a hero fit to be chosen by the gods.

Paksenarrion was the finest paladin her world would ever see. But she could never have fulfilled her destiny had it not been for one who came before: Gird, the Liberator. When Gird leads his peasant army against their mageborn rulers, he knows that his sworn follower Luap is the king's bastard son. But in spite of his oath to seek no throne and to renounce his heritage, Luap cannot not forget his past. And when he discovers a distant land that he can reach by magic, his loyalties are divided. What harm would it do if he were to break his oath and crown himself king of this far-off land? Deep in the western mountains, in a sanctuary abandoned by the elder races, Luap finds out - as do those who follow him. Liar's Oath is the second of two prequels to the hugely popular DEED OF PAKSENARRION trilogy.

BY THE AUTHOR OF THE DEED OF PAKSENARRION Paksenarrion was the finest paladin her world would ever see. But Paksenarrion could never have become a fighter at all had it not been for he who had come before: Gird, the liberator, who taught his people that they could fight¾and win¾against their Mage-Born rulers. And after Gird came one more: Luap, Gird's sworn follower and the king's half-breed bastard. Riven by internal conflict, Luap dare not lie and cannot tell the truth, nor face the future. At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management). PRAISE FOR THE LEGACY OF GIRD "A massive and brilliant book, with Moon's unsurpassed military and historical expertise very much to the fore. Close behind it is her concern with ethics, which ejevates her characterization as far above the fantasy average as her worldbuilding." ¾Chicago Sun-Times "A detailed look into a fantasy medieval culture as seen from the peasants' point of view.... A wonderful prequel and lead into the author's trilogy, The Deed of Paksenarrion." ¾VOYA "Fans of The Deed of Paksenarrion have been waiting for this book, but newcomers to Moon's vision should not fear jumping right in . . . I don't think you'll be disappointed." ¾Quantum

A la capitana Honor Harrington a veces le cuesta saber quién es en realidad el enemigo. A pesar de los adversarios políticos, los celos profesionales y el escándalo que la llevó al exilio, le han ofrecido la oportunidad de recuperar su carrera como oficial de la Real Armada Manticoriana. Solo hay una pega. Debe asumir el mando de un «escuadrón» de naves mercantes armadas y reformadas y comandar una tripulación sacada de entre toda la escoria del servicio. Con eso debe arreglárselas para detener a los piratas que se han aprovechado de la guerra havenita para saquear el comercio del Reino Estelar. Por si eso no fuera suficiente, algunos de los piratas no son exactamente lo que parecen... como tampoco lo son algunos de los supuestos amigos de Honor.

El reino de Mantícora necesita aliados contra la República de Haven, que considera que la guerra y la conquista son el orden lógico y natural que el universo debería seguir. El planeta Grayson, situado en un lugar estratégico, es el perfecto aliado. No obstante, el Ministerio de Asuntos Exteriores de su majestad olvidó un detalle importante cuando escogió a Honor Harrington para llevar la bandera: las mujeres en Grayson carecen de derechos y, por tanto, no ocupan puestos de responsabilidad. Lo que, sin duda, convertirá la presencia de Honor en una afrenta intolerable para todos los varones del planeta.
