But on the way to the city, she encounters a patrol of Lakewalkers, nomadic soldier-sorcerers from the northern woodlands. Feared necromancers armed with mysterious knives made of human bone, they wage a secret on-going war against the scourge of the “malices,” immortal entities that draw the life out of their victims, enslaving human and animal alike. It is Dag—a Lakewalker patroller weighed down by past sorrows and present responsibilities—who must come to Fawn’s aid when she is taken captive by a malice. They prevail at a devastating cost—unexpectedly binding their fates together as they embark upon a remarkable journey into danger and delight, prejudice and partnership . . . and perhaps even love.

Book Synopsis: Thisvolume of essays continues the establishment of Lois McMaster Bujold as an importantauthor of contemporary science fiction and fantasy. It argues persuasively thatBujold's corpus spans the distance between two full arcs of US feminism, andhas anticipated or responded to several of its current concerns in ways thatinvite or even require theoretical exploration. The fourteen essays collected here provide wide-ranging scholarly analysesof Bujold's work and worlds so far, covering not only the science fiction and fantasyseries, but taking into account the wealth of ancillary material inspired byher works, such as fan fiction and role-playing games. Examining the majorseries through a range of perspectives, including feminist readings, queertheory, and disability studies, this volume aims to establish beyond doubt theseriousness of intent behind Bujold's various artistic projects and provide aset of rich readings of this engaging, experimental, playful, and popularauthor.
