    Young, pregnant Fawn Bluefield has just fled her family's farm to the city of Glassforge, where she encounters a patrol of the enigmatic soldier-sorcerers known as Lakewalkers. Fawn has heard stories about the Lakewalkers, who are wandering necromancers with no permanent homes and no possessions except the clothes they wear and the mysterious knives they carry. What she does not know is that the Lakewalkers are engaged in a perilous campaign against inhuman and immortal magical entities known as "malices".

    Eric C. Zawadzki says: "Not really my thing"
    "An intriguing take on fantasy"
    Overall

    I love this author's stories and this on is no exception. So far in my fantasy quest I've read nothing like it. Men might find it a bit sentamental but as a married woman I was reminded of my courtship time. Although a bit explicit, it was a refreshing jogging of memory as well as being a well-spun tale with colorful characters.

    Story

    Amidst the decaying splendor and poisonous intrigue of Chalion's ancient capital, Cazaril is forced to confront not only powerful enemies but also the malignant curse that clings to the royal household, trapping him, flesh and soul, in a maze of demonic paradox, damnation, and death for as long as he dares walk the five-fold pathway of the gods.

    "Excellent!!!! My favorite of her stories!"
    Overall

    I LOVE this book. I love the story and the characters. I have "read" it 3 times already. Romance is kept to a minimum and is quite chaste in it's wanderings. If you like Lois McMaster Bujold you should love this story.

  • The Sharing Knife, Volume 3: Passage

    Filled with magic, heroism, and all-too-human characters, Bujold's Sharing Knife saga is both a gripping adventure and a poignant romance.

    The farmers and riverfolk have long distrusted the power of the mysterious and aloof Lakewalkers. The proud Lakewalkers, meanwhile, have exiled Dag after learning of his marriage to Fawn, the first outsider to be bound to a Lakewalker in their magical way. But as Dag's natural Lakewalker ability to manipulate "ground energy" begins to develop in dangerous directions, he and Fawn realize that big changes are ahead.

    Neale Blackwood says: "The quality keeps coming"
    "My favorite in the series so far"
    Overall

    The author adds some wonderful new characters to her story. It is very complex and thoughtful and breaks with the need to have everything come out perfectly tidy. This one also goes very scanty on the sex so that's a plus for me.

    Filled with magic, heroism, and all-too-human characters, Bujold's Sharing Knife saga is both a gripping adventure and a poignant romance. In this second volume, Fawn Bluefield, the clever farm girl, and Dag Redwing Hickory, the seasoned Lakewalker soldier-sorcerer, are newly married. Their arrival at Dag's home on Hickory Lake Camp is met with prejudice and suspicion, as many in the camp deny the literal bond between Dag and Fawn, woven in blood in the Lakewalker magical way.

    Peter Morton says: "Sharing Knife..Not to be missed"
    "A well-done sequal"
    Overall

    This is a continuation of the sharing knife story line, not just "another episode". As usual there isn't a ton of action but rather very colorful characters, some you like and some you very much do not.
    Overall I am pleased with the story. My one complaint is that there is one scene that is a bit over-explicit but it is quite short.
