    This is the first book in the Chalion series and it is both a delightful read and an excellent introduction to the series. I enjoy the rich use of language and creative plot lines. The unique religion introduces gods who interact with the characters in a meaningful way and characters with both courage and spirit. The development of the characters is sympathetic, realistic and textured. If you are looking for a fantasy book which has both intense action and mature character development, this book is for you.

    Another re-read

    I think this book is one my very favorites. Boujold's world is crisp and well defined. As a fantasy is breaks from the usual mold, no wizards or elves, barbarians or dwarves, just a well written story that is fun yet thought provoking.

    Excellent writing and a real page-turner.

    The first novel that I've read by this author, I loved this book enough to buy it immediately after reading and then devour the rest of the series. Bujold spends time on characterization, but not at the expense of the plot or the writing. The way she integrates the gods into the lives of the characters is phenomenal; I've read a lot of books, but never anything quite like this.

    One of my favourite books ever, from one of my favourite authors ever. The story uses understated humour to discuss what would happen if gods were real, and could interfere in our lives if we allow them to do so.
