Bujold, Lois McMaster
World of the Five Gods: Penric and the Shaman
Signed by the author on the title page. Young Lord Penric now wears the white robes of the Bastard's Order, complete with shoulder braids marking him as a divine and sorcerer, while he pursues scholarly studies in the court of the Princess-Archdivine. His demon of disorder, Desdemona, is of course present, accounted for, and offering clever commentary, particularly when she grows bored. When a Locator of the Father's Order shows up on the Archdivine's threshold, in need of a sorcerer for a journey, and she volunteers Penric, at least Des is thrilled with the prospect of an adventure. As they travel into the mountains to locate Inglis, a shaman accused of murdering his best friend, the situation grows into a test for all of Penric's developing talents.
