July Books 24) The Sharing Knife: Legacy

24) The Sharing Knife: Legacy, by Lois McMaster Bujold

Six months on from the first volume, we just got the second of the latest Bujold series (a two-parter, alas, so this is it unless she can be persuaded to return to this world). It is not a spoiler to say that it starts with the best sex scene Bujold has ever written, and then gets into a gripping narrative of mixed marriage, impossible in-laws, and unspeakable horrors of a supernatural nature. Towards the end, I thought to myself, aha, she is just going to reprise the brilliant public tribunal ending to A Civil Campaign. But no, she chose a different path this time, which made for a really satisfying end to the book. Best novel I've read so far this month.

Her next is also in this world, another duology, if I remember correctly.

Then she'll go back to the Vorkosiverse.

Waiting for paperback - I enjoyed Beguilement very much.

Have you read her other books? She is one of my favourite authors.

Yes, I've read pretty much everything by her, and own nearly everything. I discovered her about 10 years ago, when Mum lent me Borders of Infinity and have diligently sought out her books since.
