I had only read LMB science fiction before this opening The Curse of Chalion, and being catapulted into a world heavily inspired by medieval Spain.
I can't really explain why, but the book deeply resounded with me. I guess because the theology that LMB proposed here is really appealing to me, because Cazaril is the ultimate hero that I want to read about (with his failures, defects, and bruises, but knowing on what things to make a standa and when and to whom to surrender completely...
I know pieces of this book by heart, and I love to re-read it at least once a year (infact I am behind schedule and should take it out again).
Bravo, bravo to Lois McMaster Bujold, I thought nothing written by her could top my love for the 'Little Admiral', but this book and The Paladin of Souls are at least equally standing on the topo pedestal
