Bethany Dotson, November 12, 2012 (view all comments by Bethany Dotson)
It has been a long time since I've read a fantasy book this good; I can't believe it took me so long to find you!

There's not much that ISN'T fantastic in this book. The characters are wonderful, real, vulnerable--the plot had me up late to get to the end--the world-building is flawless. It reminded me, in many ways, of Sherwood Smith's "Crown Duel," along with the other comparisons already made here (Robin Hobb, Patrick Rothfuss, in some ways, Scott Lynch, Guy Gavriel Kay, and especially Tad Williams).

I put this book down after turning the last page, thought about it for a minute, and then went and ordered the second and third books in the trilogy. If you're considering purchasing this one, consider no more--just hit that Buy button!

Who knew that a book with a theme of religion (in a completely made-up and believable culture) would be fascinating to someone who has never had a religion?

With The Curse of Chalion, Bujold steps boldly into the fantasy world, and all readers of epic fantasy are the better for it. She is masterful at building her world- her descriptions of religion, especially, are fascinating. Add in action, intrigue and a touch of romance, and you know you have a goldmine in your hands. If you're one of those people eagerly anticipating the next book in George R. R. Martin's series, or the next Robin Hobb novel, then try this trilogy on for size- you won't be disappointed.

"Review" by , "Nicely detailed and wittily accented....[H]ere's hoping it launches a series of tales as well told as the Vorkosigan volumes."
"Review" by , "Fresh, intriguing, and as always from Lois McMaster Bujold, superb." Robert Jordan, New York Times bestselling author of The Wheel of Time Series
"Review" by , "Subtle yet powerful language raises this fantasy above most others in its genre, making it impossible to put down....Bujold's latest novel might just be what older Harry Potter fans are yearning for."
"Review" by , "Boilerplate fantasy, with characters too often indistinguishable and, later, the deflating disclosure that everything that happens is some sort of divine plot. Overall, no better than average, but probably adequate for Bujold fans."
"Review" by , "A finely balanced mixture of adventure, swordplay, court intrigue, romance, magic, and religion makes this book a delightful read."
"Review" by , "This is one of the great ones."
