Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“A saga of daring deeds and unlikely romance.”
—Library Journal

One of the most respected writers in the field of speculative fiction, Lois McMaster Bujold has won numerous accolades and awards, including the Nebula and Locus Awards as well as the fantasy and science fiction genres most prestigious honor, the Hugo Award for Best Novel, four times (most recently for Paladin of Souls). With The Sharing Knife series, Bujold creates a brand new world fraught with peril, and spins an extraordinary romance between a young farm girl and the brave sorcerer-soldier entrusted with the defense of the land against a plague of vicious malevolent beings. Legacy continues the tale of Fawn Bluefield and Dag Redwing Hickory—the dangerous repercussions of their rebellious marriage and the strengthening of their love in the face of dark magic—as duty and disaster call the Lakewalker patroller away from his new bride and toward a peril that could forever alter the lovers and their world.

Synopsis:

Bujold continues her Hugo Award-winning romantic fantasy series that began with "The Sharing Knife: Beguilement," a Book Sense Pick for November 2006.

Synopsis:

Volume two in the epic fantasy sagaof love and peril, courage and fate,from one of the mosthonored writers in the field—multiple Hugo Award-winning author Lois McMaster Bujold

Ill-chance brought young Fawn Bluefield together with Dag Redwing Hickory, the seasoned soldier-sorcerer, but it was love and loyalty that joined their fates. While their unorthodox marriage has been grudgingly accepted by the clever farmgirls people, Dags Lakewalker kin are less tolerant, greeting their union with derision, suspicion, and prejudice. The specterof permanent exile looms above the couple—until a final decision on their lot is diverted by a sudden, viciously magical malice attack on a neighboring hinterland. Sworn to duty, Dag must answer the call, leaving his new bride behind. But what awaits him and his patrol could have serious and unimagined consequences for farmers and Lakewalkers alike,forever altering the lovers, their families, and their world.

Legacy, volumn two, of the "Sharing Knife", is just as engaging as Beguilement. As usual, Bujold has created complex and believable characters that you can really care about. This saga would be a wonderful addition to a fantasy lover's collection. Romance readers will love it too!
