really liked it
bookshelves: fantasy
Recommended for: anyone who likes fantasy or Bujold

As usual, her writing is superior. Her main character isn't perfect, he has flaws, but not flaws that make you dislike him. Her religion is fascinating, and her world is interesting. Rather than borrowing from real life, she creates her own titles (Royse for prince, Royesse for princess, etc.). Her story is gripping, and you aren't sure of the outcome until very near the end. The main character is likeable as are the supporting characters. The villain is despicable, and very easy to hate.

Typical Bujold, and yes, I think her fantasy is as good as her SF. Read it!
