The concluding volumein the epic fantasy saga from multipleHugo Award-winning authorLois McMaster Bujold
A Lakewalker entrusted with protecting the populace from terrifying remnants of ancient magic, Dag Redwing Hickory never expected to fall in love with farmer girl Fawn Bluefield. When they joined in marriage, defying their kin, they bridged the perilous split between their peoples. Now Dag’s extraordinary maker abilities have grown—along with his fears about who and what he is becoming, and his frustration with the disdain in which Lakewalker soldier-sorcerers hold their farmer neighbors.
Fawn and Dag’s world is changing, and the traditional Lakewalker practices cannot continue to hold every malice at bay. At the end of their long journey home, the pair must answer the question they’ve grappled with for so long: When the old traditions fail disastrously, can their untried new ways stand against their world’s deadliest foe?--This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.
This has been a different kind of a fantasy series. Not much action (but when it’s there, it’s sizzling), and a much slower pace than most books—even most of Bujold’s books. Read morePublished 1 month ago by K.M. Weiland, Author of Historical and Speculative Fiction
