Bujold has been a favorite of mine because of her Vorkosigan Series, which I highly recommend. However, I must admit that the Curse of Chalion and Paladin of Souls top even those works. This book is refreshingly different from the traditional fantasy stories where the hero somehow finds some source of unstoppable power. Rather, it seems somewhat more... believable. The story takes place in a wonderfully fascinating world, and the characters in it are delightful. Kate Reading provides an excellent voice for the book. I do, however, highly recommend reading the Curse of Chalion before enjoying this novel.
