Paladin:Pawn was nothing like what I was expecting. This book is written more for the YA reader that for us older readers. Although it is well plotted, with great characters and equally good dialogue, it's a cliffhanger.

I gave this book a four start rating because it's well written and would be an exciting and enjoyable read for younger readers.
