World of the Five Gods: Penric's Travels: Penric's Mission / Mira's Last Dance / The Prisoner of Limnos
Signed by the author on the title page.Penric's Mission: Learned Penric sails to Cedonia disguised as a young lawyer on business. His real mission is clandestine diplomacy on behalf of the Duke of Adria. His usual traveling companion, the slyly clever chaos demon Desdemona, is the only one in on the secret - or so it's supposed to be. Instead, upon arrival, Penric finds himself gravely injured, and imprisoned in the darkest of dungeons. Escape will not be easy: Penric has more than one brush with disaster in his immediate future, as well as a meeting with an intriguing young widow.
Mira's Last Dance: Penric tries to guide betrayed General Arisaydia and his sister Nikys to safety in the Duchy of Orbas. In the town of Sosie, the fugitives encounter unexpected delays, and even more unexpected opportunities and hazards, as courtesan Mira of Adria - one of ten dead women whose imprints make up chaos demon Desdemona's personality - comes to the fore with her own special expertise.
The Prisoner of Limnos: Temple sorcerer Penric and the widow Nikys have reached safety in Orbas when a letter from a friend brings frightening news: Nikys' mother has been taken hostage by her brother's Cedonian enemies, and confined in a precarious island sanctuary. Nikys, Penric, and of course Desdemona must infiltrate the hostile country once more.
