Hallowed Hunt by
Description: Lord Ingrey kin Wolfcliff is sent to clean up the political mess of a young prince’s untimely demise and ends up in the middle of a four hundred year old political intrigue.
With Hallowed Hunt, Bujold returns to the very interesting Quintairan world that she started in Curse of Chalion and Paladin of Souls. While not quite as theologically meaty as the first two books, there are some very interesting mediations on the meaning of kingship and the responsibility of those who rule to, well, let go. Keep faith. Be rulers.
Of course, like all Bujold’s book, Hunt is a page turner with interesting characters, exciting action scenes and a wonderful laconic wit.
The main character, Ingrey is wonderfully morose, which sparks quite a few funny comments from the main female character Lady Ijada, as well as the peanut gallery of side characters.
An excellent afternoon read by the pool, on the couch, staying up in bed.
What can I say, once I pick Lois up, I don’t want to put the book down till I’m done
