Bujold, Lois McMaster. Chalion 1 The Curse of Chalion. R.k. 20030209. Her best ever. a fantasy, mature main character, good strong character story. minimal clerical magic, excellent redemption. an 8. - reread 20040110. and even better a 10 = even it out to a 9? Reread 20060627 - such a excellent book, possibly my favorite character ever, a 10.
Bujold, Lois McMaster. Chalion 2 Paladin of Souls. 20040111. R.x. good, but not great, minor character from the other book, but similar in character. Ista isn't as great as Caz, but the story was good. a 6.
Bujold, Lois McMaster. Chalion? 3 The Hallowed Hunt. R.K. 20060831. certainly in the same world as Chalion, but not the same land, the same gods. with the addition of shamanistic animal magic. and excellent story, but lacking a truly evil villain it was hard to get entirely behind the heros - one of those that if they'd only talk! it would work out easier! but! far better than '2' so I'd say an 8 she's getting excellent in fantasy.
