Overview

Passage (Sharing Knife Series #3) by Lois McMaster Bujold

“A thoughtful and skillful author.”
Cleveland Plain Dealer

One of the most respected writers in the field of speculative fiction, Lois McMaster Bujold has won numerous accolades and awards, including the Nebula and Locus Awards as well as the fantasy and science fiction genre’s most prestigious honor, the Hugo Award for Best Novel, four times (most recently for Paladin of Souls). With The Sharing Knife series, Bujold creates a brand new world fraught with peril, and spins an extraordinary romance between a young farm girl and the brave sorcerer-soldier entrusted with the defense of the land against a plague of vicious malevolent beings. In Passage, volume three in Bujold’s breathtaking saga of love, loyalty, and courage in the face of bigotry and dark magic, the devoted wedded lovers Fawn Bluefield and Dag Redwing Hickory are joined by new companions in their quest to find peace, acceptance, and a place in a most dangerous world.

A good captivating read

I love this series though I am not a fan of the artwork. The characters are wonderfully developed though I would expect nothing less from Lois McMaster Bujold.

I hadn't read anything by this author before this series, now I am in the process of obtaining previous works. It's that good! I enjoyed the dialogue, storyline, characters, and even the unexpected bits that continued to surprise. Very much recommeded.

This whole series is fun and fulfilling. The book I return to again and again is this one which expands the Tent Family of Dag and Fawn. The first two books introduce the world (cultures) of the Farmers and the Lakewalkers. This book follows them as they begin their mission to build a future for both peoples to become allies as wll as kin. The new characters add to the world and all of them learn and grow during the course of their adventures. Once the "shake down cruise" in this volume has been completed, all of the characters are in place for a satifying and exciting finale in Horizon.

This is another successful creation of an alternative culture, and reality by Bujold. It features culture clash in a possible future on an earthlike planet, between a former ruling scientific/ Psi class and ordinary humans. The knowledge/abilities of the ruling class led to power struggles, and misuse of the knowledge and power. This class is now dedicated to using those abilities and knowledge to undo prior damages. They hold themselves aloof and keep themselves racially pure, so the talents will breed true, and allow them to pursue their task. They also look down on the "farmers" that they protect. Bujold uses a love story between one of the "farmers", a young girl seduced into pregnancy, and running away from home rather than face the consequences, and one of the "patrollers." The patroller, a seasoned veteran senses that his people may be losing in their battle against the ancient evil. The first two volumes of this series introduce Fawn and Dag and their respective cultures. Their attempt to form a marraige that will be accepted by both their cultures is frustrated. This volume shapes the nature of change he sees as being the best of solutions for both cultures, cooperation. I look forward to the final denouement, knowing it will not be simple and straightforward.

Like so many of her books, a very complex and believable universe and characters.

As always Ms. Bujold writes a moving, intriguing story. Her main characters, Dag and Fawn, are charming, and very human. She uses a folksy style that fits the nature of the story, sort of Huck Finn with magic. I'm looking forward to her next installment in this series.
