A wonderful novella, competely worthy to add to the Chalion series and one I will read over and over again. I won't bother with a story description, just a quick note that the main character, young Lord Penric, is the same delightlfully enjoyable, complex, slightly befuddled protagonist you'll find in the other Chalion books. A great series, filled with Bujold's gentle humor and irony along with an abundance of action and plot. Love all of Bujold's books (Vorkosigan. Still my top favorite!), and hope you will find that all of the critical fame she has garnered is well-deserved.

The Chalion series (especially Curse of Chalion), has been a perennial favorite/comfort books. They're like that favorite hoodie, worn in, soft and enveloping. I'm glad to see that the series is being continued with new characters and interesting storyline. Best are the characters; I haven't been this immediately engaged with a character since Cazaril. Pen (and Desdemona) are worthy successors. Here's hoping that a new, full length novel is arriving soon.

Absolutely the only thing wrong with this is that it's a novella and not a novel. More, please!
