A magnificent epic tale of devotion, possession, obsession, and strange destiny from the author of the Hugo Award-winning

Paladin of Souls

Lois McMaster Bujold

The half-mad Prince Boleso has been slain by a noblewoman he had intended to defile -- and Lord Ingrey kin Wilfcliff must transport the body to its burial place and the accused killer, the Lady Ijada, to judgment. With the death of the old Hallow King imminent and the crown in play, the road they must travel together is a dangerous one. And though he is duty-bound to deliver his prisoner to an almost certain death, Ijada may be the only one Ingrey dares trust. For a monstrous malevolence holds the haunted lord in its sway -- and a great and terrible destiny has been bestowed upon him by the gods, the damned, and the dead.

This character-based adventure shares the well-realized medieval setting of "The Curse of Chalion" and "Paladin of Souls", but works as a standalone set centuries earlier. Bujold builds a detailed plot involving political intrigue and a surprisingly interesting theology of gods and demons around her likeable characters. There's some action and a good dose of romance, though I felt the other two books were more satisfying.

We get a fascinating fantasy story of animal spirits, gods, politics, murder and a little romance.

Bujold's Five Gods series (which includes The Curse of Chalion and Paladin of Souls) is my favorite of her series, and considering that she's my favorite author, that's saying something! This book isn't quite as mesmerizing as the first two, but its still a great read with unexpected depth.
