Volume three in the epic fantasy saga from multiple Hugo Award-winning author Lois McMaster Bujold
Young Fawn Bluefield and soldier-sorcerer Dag Redwing Hickory have survived magical dangers, but the bigotry of blood kin cannot be easily overcome. Leaving behind all that they have ever known, they set off to find fresh solutions to the perilous split between their peoples—a passage that will not be ventured alone. New companions join them on their road: Fawn’s brother, Whit, escaping a hopeless future on the family farm; two novice Lakewalker patrollers fleeing the catastrophic consequences of an honest mistake; a young flatboat captain searching for her vanished father and fiancé; a shrewd backwoods hunter; and a farmer boy unintentionally beguiled by Dag’s growing magery. On an eventful journey to where great rivers join, the ill-assorted crew will be sorely tested and tempered as they encounter a new world of hazards both human and uncanny.

4.5 stars. In this third installment of the Sharing Knife series, we discover that malices aren't the only threat to the denizens of the wide green world. This book takes a break from the Lakewalker-Malice war, but we are treated to a quaint little tale of Dag and Fawn journeying down a river in a f...
Why oh why am I such a sucker for punishment? This series must have enchanted me. Because book 1 was good, a tad boring in place, book 2 was good too, still more boring, but this one. Yes here I finally was truly bored. Now I will not rush to read book 4 at once.The other books have been slow but he...
