However, I'm not sure what it is you find interesting about Paks. Is it the strong female lead and/or the fantasy setting. For example, I highly recommend the Honor Harrington series but it is a SciFi series, not fantasy. The same author (David Weber) has a cross-over book that's a hybrid SciFi / Fantasy called "In Fury Born". Frankly if I could find a good set of books on the Baen site I would buy there first. Thier prices are right and they are DRM free.

If you want some alternatives, you might check out the urban fantasy genre. It has strong female leads in a modern day setting with witches/vampires/werewolves. There are many recommendations here:

But I especially like the books by Patricia Briggs.

There is also the Chronicles of Elantra by Michelle Sagara

Happy reading!
Thanks for all the info. I got the first book free from Baen and had only read a couple of chapters before I had to go back and buy the trilogy. It's amazing that you can get a drm-free trilogy in multiple formats for only $6 I love Baen

It's mainly the strong female lead I'm looking for, either scifi or fantasy. It's just a bit daunting looking at all the books on Baen and other places and not knowing where to start.
