Penric's Demon Lois McMaster Bujold read online review & book description:

On his way to his betrothal, young Lord Penric comes upon a riding accident with an elderly lady on the ground, her maidservant and guardsmen distraught.  As he approaches to help, he discovers that the lady is a Temple divine, servant to the five gods of this world.  Her avowed god is The Bastard, "master of all disasters out of season", and with her dying breath she bequeaths her mysterious powers to Penric.  From that moment on, Penric's life is irreversibly changed, and his life is in danger from those who envy or fear him.

Set in the fantasy world of the author's acclaimed novels THE CURSE OF CHALION, PALADIN OF SOULS and THE HALLOWED HUNT, this novella has the depth of characterization and emotional complexity that distinguishes all Bujold's work.

Bujold's "work remains among the most enjoyable and rewarding in contemporary SF." 
- Publishers Weekly

“A superb craftsman and stylist, Ms. Bujold is well on her way to becoming one of the great voices of speculative fiction.”  
- Rave Reviews

“Bujold is not just a master of plot, she is a master of emotion.” 
- SF Site
