    Severn: Different style of writing, yet similar plot content. Definitely recommended.

I would say this is pretty standard Bujold. Deeply plotted fantasy kept to a manageable scale as far as scope and number of characters. I almost would suggest NOT doing it on audio since things do get pretty complicated, I sometimes felt like I had missed something critical. I believe this is listed as "book 1" of a series but it seemed to have concluded well without anything critical left hanging, which puts it in the rare "one-shot" category with more available if you really enjoyed the setting/characters.

(probably read as soon as I got it). Marginally more interesting than "Paladin of Souls". ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060574747, Mass Market Paperback)

A magnificent epic tale of devotion, possession, obsession, and strange destiny from the author of the Hugo Award-winning

Paladin of Souls

Lois McMaster Bujold

The half-mad Prince Boleso has been slain by a noblewoman he had intended to defile -- and Lord Ingrey kin Wilfcliff must transport the body to its burial place and the accused killer, the Lady Ijada, to judgment. With the death of the old Hallow King imminent and the crown in play, the road they must travel together is a dangerous one. And though he is duty-bound to deliver his prisoner to an almost certain death, Ijada may be the only one Ingrey dares trust. For a monstrous malevolence holds the haunted lord in its sway -- and a great and terrible destiny has been bestowed upon him by the gods, the damned, and the dead.

A forbidden spirit now inhabits the soul of Ijada, giving her senses she never wished for and an obligation no one sane would desire. At once psychically linked to the remarkable lady and repelled by what she carries within, Ingrey fears the havoc his own inner beast could wreak while on their journey, as he fights a powerful growing attraction, and an equally powerful compulsion to kill. The road they travel together is beset with dangers, and though duty bound to deliver Ijada to an almost certain execution, Ingrey soon realizes that she is the only one he dares trust. For a malevolent enemy with designs on a troubled kingdom holds Ingrey in his sway, and without Ijada's aid and love, the haunted lord will never be able to break free and realize the great and terrible destiny bestowed upon him by the gods, the damned, and the dead.… (more)
