Marvelous, as usual

by sparkelah on Sep 18, 2009

Bujold has a knack for creating new worlds; not the usual template of swords and sorcery but characters who live and breath and act in engaging, intricate plots. There is humour and humanity, passion and grief with a little erotic flavour to liven things. I'm saddened when I finish her books. I don't want them to end.


A darker look at Chalion

by Ellyb on Mar 18, 2008

Lois McMaster Bujold seems to thrive on miring her characters in intricately knotted situations, where not just lives but souls are at stake. After the introduction of "The Curse of Chalion," one might think this series couldn't really get much darker, but Bujold adds even more shades of black and grey by centering the action on one of the sadder secondary characters from the earlier book, whose back story is nothing if not horrific, and dampening the wittiness of the previous installment. I have to say that I missed the humorous elements of Bujold's writing, but "Paladin of Souls" is still well-written and impressive in the deftness with which it addresses the spiritual reconciliation between the protagonist and her estranged deities.
