Lakewalker Barr Foxbrush returns from two years of patrolling the bitter wilds of Luthlia against the enigmatic, destructive entities called malices, only to find that the secret daughter he’d left behind in the hinterland of Oleana has disappeared from her home after a terrible accusation. The search for her will call on more of Barr’s mind and heart than just his mage powers, as he tries to balance his mistakes of the past and his most personal duties to the future.
From Publishers Weekly:
“Bujold masterfully blends the domestic with the fantastical in her signature style. Though there are references to characters from the rest of the series, new readers will follow the plot with ease as Bujold lays out the intricacies of Lakewalker culture. This quick, nimble novel is an easy recommendation for fans eager to return to the Sharing Knife universe and anyone looking for light high fantasy fare.”
“While Bujold’s characterization and storytelling skills remain as strong as ever, and this novella holds up well on its own. It will appeal most to the many fans of the Sharing Knife quartet.”
