Bujold - Paladin of Souls

Lois McMaster Bujold
Paladin of Souls
New York : EOS, c2003.

This is the second book in the same world as her Curse of Chalion, taking a minor character from the first book and making her the focus of the second.

Like all of her stuff, it is well written.

Like Chalion it is a well thought out world.

Like many of the books that I have been very much enjoying, it is a love story involving fully mature characters. The coming of age story is a standard trope in fantasy. Modern culture has been terribly focused on kids, and for a long time fantasy has been "kids lit". Now that the boomers are aging, we are seeing more mature love stories.

Anyhow, I had a cold, the toddler was home with pink-eye, and I read a novel during his nap. It was a good novel. Yum.
