Amazing PDF The Paladin author CJ Cherryh This is the best. Looking 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 Shoka He is not always a lovely person or easy to like He is impatient irritable and very much a product of his culture which is patriarchal and oppressive of women Several times in the narrative he half seriously considers raping his student to 'end her foolishness' He never does of course; regardless of his thoughts he is at his core an honorable and practical man or at least tries to be Whether you ever come to like him or not he is complex interesting human and completely believable in context In the course of the book we meet Taizu the peasant girl hell bent on revenge We come to know her entirely through Shoka's eyes It's fascinating to watch her become not just a nuisance not just a student and source of sexual frustration but a complex and interesting person in her own right One that he comes to value and even loveWhich of these two is the paladin referred to in the title I've reread this book many times over the years and I still can't decide Perhaps it is both Regardless of how many times I read this book I always find it a rich and satisfying experience
