Publisher's Summary

In a world where malices, remnants of ancient magic, can erupt with life-destroying power, only the soldier-sorcerer Lakewalkers have mastered the ability to kill them. But Lakewalkers keep their uncanny secrets - and themselves - from the farmers they protect. So when patroller Dag rescued farm girl Fawn, neither expected to fall in love, marry, and defy both their kin to seek new solutions to the split between their peoples.As Dag's powers have grown, so has his frustration with the Lakewalkers' rigid mores. Fawn and Dag see that their world is changing and that the traditional Lakewalker practices cannot hold the malices at bay forever. Yet for all the customs that Dag and Fawn have challenged, they will soon be confronted with a crisis beyond imagining. When the old ways fail, can their untried new ways stand against their world's deadliest foe?

Very satisfying read

This book continually kept my attention throughout the entire book. I found myself staying up late doing chores just so I could continue listening. The whole Sharing Knife series has been very enjoyable. This fourth volume has continued that tradition. I love Dag's no-nonsense heroic ways and Fawn's heroic pluck. I enjoy characters I would personally like to meet and get to know. These two definitely qualify.

I have never been disappointed and have thoroughly enjoyed all of Bujold's books and series. With this book she continues to earn my respect and I hope will earn yours as well.

I love LMB books even this series but

This book although well written and very well read, left me wanting. I won't give any plots away to those who are following this series but for me it just fell short. I felt the first three had more to them and to tell the truth I thought the third was the end. To each his own I guess. I still love LMB, and have read almost everything she has written. Can't please every one all the time. :)
