A novel by

 
 
When the ship in which they are traveling is captured by Carpagamon island raiders, Temple sorcerer Penric and his resident demon Desdemona find their life complicated by two young orphans, Lencia and Seuka Corva, far from home and searching for their missing father. Pen and Des will need all their combined talents of mind and magic to unravel the mysteries of the sisters and escape from the pirate stronghold.

This novella follows about a year after the events of "The Prisoner of Limnos".

"Bujold's delightful latest tale of Penric ... is another winner in Bujold's already strong series."
- Publisher's Weekly *Starred Review* on "The Prisoner of Limnos"

"Series fans and fantasy readers who seek well-drawn characters will love this tale."
- Publisher's Weekly on "Mira's Last Dance"

"Best-selling author Bujold follows her Hugo-nominated "Penric and the Shaman" (2017) with another adventure featuring the sorcerer Penric and his resident 200-year-old chaos demon, Desdemona. ... Series fans will be delighted with this tale, which begs for continuation."
- Booklist on "Penric's Mission"

"Set in the 'World of The Five Gods' (The Curse of Chalion; Paladin of Souls; The Hallowed Hunt), Bujold's novella takes series fans back to a well-known realm in an exciting new adventure. The varied voices, especially between Pen and Desdemona, add a fun slant to a serious tale."
- Library Journal on "Penric and the Shaman"

"Bujold follows 'Penric's Demon' with another brief tale set in her World of the Five Gods, this time combining supernatural sleuthing with finely drawn characters and a panoply of emotions... This is a wonderful expansion of her World of the Five Gods."
- Publisher's Weekly *Starred Review* on "Penric and the Shaman"

"Fans of the Chalion tales will again be drawn in by the intrigue of the religious dynamics, the fantasy aspects of the "magic" and the complexity of character that Bujold is so masterful at creating."
