This character-based adventure shares the well-realized medieval world of "The Curse of Chalion" but works as a standalone. 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, weaving into a very satisfying whole.

Really enjoyed this fantastical story of Ista's battle with the darkness that surrounds her. A lovely follow up from "The Curse of Chalion" but can be read as a stand alone.

One of best books I've read in a while. It has everything you need for a good story, action, faith, war, demons, and gods. I also appreciated the strong older female character. I especially enjoyed that she had a romantic relationship develop but it was managed tastefully and joyously. This is a book ii highly recommend to anyone who loves a good story, but especially those who want to see women portrayed in a range of roles.

One of my favorite books in the whole world. Whenever a friend wants a book recommendation, this is the one I hand them. One of Bujold's best works, deep and entertaining at the same time.

This book gives a lot to think about in terms of divine intervention, fate, damnation and redemption. It's also nice to see a story with an older protagonist. It helps if you've read "Curse of Challion" first, but it's not necessary.

This follows after the curse of
challion. AgIN CHARACTER is very important.

finally, a fantasy book about an older female character. The queen mother goes on a pilgrimage, spirits and magic ensue. A dark story with demons and battles.
