    Summary

    “Effa,” said Pont finally, “if you wanted to be that sort of warrior — a paladin or something like that — you should have talked to your Marshal about joining a fighting order—“

    “He said I should get experience,” said Effa, red-faced.
    - The Deed of Paksenarrion, Chapter Nine

    Effa had the strongest -- and most obnoxious -- faith of anyone in Duke Phelan's company. Her death served to fuel Paks' doubts over the power and mercy of Gird. But faith like Effa's doesn't come from nowhere. Before the Company, before the battle, before Paksennarion and Phelan and Stammel, there was a girl, and a paladin, and a promise made by moonlight.

    Summary

    “Jealousy is a tiger that tears not only its prey but also its own raging heart."

    Barra has seen Paksenarrion’s demise behind her closed eyelids a hundred — a thousand — times over the years.

    If the main tale is the story of Paksenarrion's rise, it's also one of Barranyi's fall. Light and dark, good and evil; two women walk the same path and end at very different destinations. Can one act of revenge live up to the years of obsession that built up to it? When everything builds up to a single moment, how can life mean anything else afterward?
