Paksenarrion does, indeed, smack of "special snowflake syndrome". In several places in the first book, I looked up and went "Why is she doing this when [x] would be a more appropriate choice?"
Also, aside from a much too long sequence in the second (?) book, she never suffers much from the consequences of her actions.
So yeah. A good book to read if you don't want anything too challenging, but a bad book to read if you're looking for something remotely interesting.</i<
