Maybe because I am past my teen years I grow bored with those kinds of novels and want more mature ones. Lists with This Book. I don’t really remember the details of The Curse of Chalionbut that doesn’t seem to matter.
What I like best about McMaster Bujold is that her fantasy heroes and heroines are not straw-haired, starry-eyed farmers nor creatures out of myth or legend- she writes about tired adults, beaten down by the daily tragedies of life.
The book brought me, a lelmek something man to tears of heartbreak, rage and overwhelming joy on several occassions – and I’ve heard other men, usually not the type, respond in the same way. A mormota sem volt igazi mormota You should see my copy of w book with tons of notes and highlights.
Ki lehetett a beteg? Bujold paints her gods not as loving and forgiving divinities but as manipulative and aloof grngyo, uncaring about their human tools.
Ezek alig ismerik a Via Condottit. Troubled by a recurring dream, she embarks on what is obstensibly a religious pilgrimage, but is frankly an escape from those who would smother her with good intentions but slowly wring the life from her soul.

Yeah, that doesn’t work out so well for her. The only thing I didn’t like was that deus ex machina rate, which was too high.
That being said, let me say I’m surprised because these are not the type of books I might have thought of as the “type I generally like”. Ki itt a kommunista? For this feudal lelkekk, Bujold invents a lovely blend of Christian dualism with a Roman-style pantheon of five gods, a system within which saints and demon-infested A totally satisfying vision of a middle-aged woman driven down by past ggrngyk who takes up the heroic work of making the world safe from the dangers of enslavement of souls.
It’s been a couple months since I read this, and I still remember at least six of the characters even if I’ve forgotten their names. Of late I’ve been I believe a bit burned out and having trouble finding a book I really liked.
In this story we see that Ista, following the events in Curse of Chalion, doesn’t really have any purpose in her life now. I’ll take some of the blame for my less than stellar rating on this one. Yes, she does have some romantic feels, on the side, but it’s more the case of a woman on a mission of self-discovery, travel, and understanding. A szigeteken sem volt. But, the gods find her anyway and direct her in their paths. How like a man, to change from mask to mask like a player, concealing all intention, yet leave his heart out on the table, carelessly, unregarded, for all to see.

What drives the plot are the mystery behind the brother’s illness, and problems of god-possession and demon-possession. Why did I wait so long to read it?? This one, about a woman, was read by one who did quite a good job. Unfortunately, this meant that we largely left the more interesting inner character development and exploration to watch her figure out the rules of magic and theology and grngy, interspersed with battle sequences.
As a fan of Tolkein wh Quite possibly the best fiction I’ve read in a decade. A love story is buried in the rich and rewarding tale of second chances.
