Lois McMaster Bujold returns to the vivid, perilous world of her previous masterworks, the Hugo Award–winning Paladin of Souls and Hugo and World Fantasy Award–nominated The Curse of Chalion, with this tale of devotion and strange destiny.

The half-mad Prince Boleso has been slain by a noblewoman he had intended to defile. It falls to Lord Ingrey kin Wilfcliff to transport the prince to his burial place and to bring the accused killer, Lady Ijada, to judgment. His mission is an ugly and delicate one, for the imminent death of the old Hallow King has placed the crown in play, and the road he travels with his burden and his prisoner is fraught with danger. But in the midst of political chaos, magic has the fiercer hold on Ingrey’s destiny, and Ijada herself may turn out to be the only one he dares trust.

Listener Opinions

    " The last in the trilogy and very different than the other two. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andy | 4/17/2011

    " The Chalion series is a good read and plot that doesn't follow all of the standard formulas. It is always nice to read a book in this genre written by a woman author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 2/18/2011

    " One of the best series I have ever read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becca | 2/13/2011

    " Still an excellent Bujold book, but out of the Chalion books this is the one I liked the least. I found Wencel Horseriver to be boring as a villain and the ending to be uninspiring. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 1/6/2011

    " The weakest of the series, surely, but still a good read with a different perspective on the gods than the others in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cat | 12/30/2010

    " Outstanding. Bujold does it again. Characters I fell in love with. A world I was drawn into. Intellectually and emotionally stimulating. I can't get enough of her elegant, expressive writing! "

    " not as good as the first 2, but okay "
