Lois McMaster Bujold is a name I heard alot of over the past 4 years from a friend of mine. I never read any of her work. What a moron I was. The Curse of Chalion was exceptional and very engaging fantasy fare. Bujold stole my heart away with that tale and made me easily get deeply involved with her characters and their fates. Paladin of Souls returns to that coffer of magic and gives us all another excellent journey. Bujold's strengths are most evident here. Sharp witted characters, soulful ponderings, a mysterious journey. Man, did I have fun with this one. You will too. But listen to The Curse of Chalion first because you will miss out on many continuities within the growing world of Chalion. Noone should deny themselves that amazing book anyway. Kate Reading does a superb job with the narration/characterization. Her work on Jordan's Wheel of Time series had made me a fan long ago, but I was surprised by her british accent during this read. It seems she has successfully masked it for the Jordan books (understandably) but it is a joy to hear in Paladin of Souls.
