In this novella set in the World of the Five Gods and four years after the events in Penric's Demon, Penric is a divine of the Bastard's Order as well as a sorcerer and scholar, living in the palace where the Princess-Archdivine holds court. His scholarly work is interrupted when the Archdivine agrees to send Penric, in his role as sorcerer, to accompany a "Locator" of the Father's Order, assigned to capture Inglis, a runaway shaman charged with the murder of his best friend. However, the situation they discover in the mountains is far more complex than expected. Penric's roles as sorcerer, strategist, and counselor are all called upon before the end. Bujold delivers an astonishing tale that is not soon forgotten.--Provided by Publisher.… (mais)

even better than the first.
I *heart* Penric and Desdemona! ( )

Hugo reading.

I'll be honest - it's been so long since I read the first installment that I had forgotten much of what happened. I'll have to go back and do that before going on to the rest of this series, because it's so good that it deserves to have my full attention and heart.

Penric (and his demon) gets dragged along after a fugitive shaman. The plot is not as twisty as I'm used to from Bujold, but still twisty enough to be satisfying. The gods are manipulating things to the best outcome and it's fantastic to see happen.

My one regret is I didn't get enough inside Penric's brain because I loved the interaction between him and Desdemona. ( )

This novella continues the exploration of the Chalion realm, but rather than focusing on what it means to be a Divine or a Sorcerer, we're given insight in what it means to be a Shaman.

It's very interesting in conjunction with everything we learn in the [b:The Hallowed Hunt|61887|The Hallowed Hunt (World of the Five Gods, #1)|Lois McMaster Bujold|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1431214831s/61887.jpg|3036421].

Wolf man, indeed!

Actually, even though I was hoping for more of Desdemona, the 12 personality demon lodged within Penric's head, I wasn't too disappointed just to have her causing him a bit of trouble instead of nearly taking over the tale (and my interest) as had happened in [b:Penric's Demon|25791216|Penric's Demon (World of the Five Gods, #1.5)|Lois McMaster Bujold|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1436108514s/25791216.jpg|45642232].

Instead, we've got a Penric who has gotten comfortable and educated and not desiring any sort of adventure, so yeah, of course we've got to have him sent on a mission to find a murderer and a soul-stealer. We've got to break him out of his rut! :)

The adventure is both fun and rather desperate at the same time because we get three PoV's. Penric of course, the Shaman, and the hunter. It makes for a very rounded tale and an very interesting look into what might be one of the most fascinating features of this series: the magic.

The gods are always interesting, too, but this novella really focuses on the magic of both sides of the coin, and I really enjoyed it.

I'm looking forward to more!

Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC! ( )

Now trained as a temple sorcerer and a divine and seconded to the Princess Archdevine's household Penric's calm life is wearing on Desdemona until a Legate of the Father comes requesting help tracking a murderous Shaman. One wonders at what point the Gods started meddling to harvest an endangered soul. ( )

This second novella in the Penric & Desdemona series starts several years after the first one ("Penric's Demon"). Penric has become a divine in the Bastard's order as well as the scholar he had wanted to be as a boy and, of course, a sorcerer due to his possession of the demon Desdemona. I really enjoyed Pen's interactions with Desdemona & also the 2 new characters introduced in this book - Locator Oswyl (from the Father's order) & Shaman Inglis. ( )
