We’re pleased to publish Knot of Shadows, the latest novella-length adventure featuring Lois McMaster Bujold’s beloved characters, Penric and Desdemona.
Note: We will not be making this title available to large online retailers.
About the Book:
When a corpse is found floating face-down in Vilnoc harbor that is not quite as dead as it seems, Temple sorcerer Penric and his chaos demon Desdemona are drawn into the uncanny investigation. Pen’s keen questions will take him across the city of Vilnoc, and into far more profound mysteries, as his search for truths interlaces with tragedy.
Limited: 1250 signed numbered hardcover copies
From Publishers Weekly (Starred Review):
“Temple sorcerer Penric and demon Desdemona return in this page-turner fantasy mystery from Bujold, the 11th in the series (after The Assassins of Thasalon) and possibly the best yet… Bujold has her protagonists combine mundane and mystical investigative methods to unravel the questions at hand, creating a truly enticing mystery. Series fans and new readers alike will want to savor this intricate, unusual case.”
