For me: a really weak story and I regret the use of a credit. Others may enjoy this book, just not me.

This was awful. It never rises above formulaic duff. Very childish and naive.
The narration is terrible. The woman's voice grates.

Yes. The voice actor did a great job with executing.

The Twist of the Paladins.

The hospital scenes with the light humor were my favorite.
Any additional comments?
I first read this novel on Wattpad where I also write epic fantasy. Both of us have popular fantasy novels on there, and hers published first. This story is absolutely amazing, and really brings out a strong female character which I don't believe epic fantasy as a genre has a lot of. The character is strong, as strong or stronger than a female in The Wheel of Time. You feel a connection with the protagonist immediately and when the chapters end they leave you craving for more. I highly recommend it to all fantasy fans, the read is enjoyable, and once you get into it, you won't want to put it down. I will be following Ms. Slater's career as it progresses as I am sure that she has many more great novels to unfold. Pick this book up and read it, I guarantee you won't regret it.

If you are looking for a book with detailed swordplay, a woman with the spirit of a warrior fighting against societal norms, knights, and a rich universe that suspends disbelief? This is the wrong choice for you. Try ANY of Tamora Pierce's Tortall books (but not the audiobooks).
Paladin starts off very strong, but as the story goes on the combat just falls apart. The writer falls into the trap of TELLING the reader how awesome the fights are instead of SHOWING us.
On a good note, the morals of the story are very clear and our strong female paladin does not waiver. But she is incredibly insignificant in fight scenes.
This author shows A LOT of promise and I look forward to her writing's maturation. But if you are looking for the above mentioned qualities, PLEASE read Tamora Pierce.
