I find Bujold's writing quite rich and engaging. The story of Dag & Fawn continues in this book, describing how Dag's lakewalker kin, peers, colleagues and acquaintances react to his marrying a farmer woman. Prejudice and distrust run deep between and among the farming people and the magic wielding lakewalkers. The story is part heated romance, part fantasy / magic battle quest and part literary overview of human nature. Dag's magical talents are revealed to be greater than either the reader or the character may have been led to believe, as is Fawn's steadfast commitment. There is no closure in this part of the ongoing story. I'll definitely go on with the remaining parts. I suspect the story arc will be similar to that of The Prydain Chronicles and The Lord of the Rings, though Bujold may surprise me.
