Paladin of Souls - Lois McMaster Bujold A nearly perfect book, and one I'm already thinking I should reread. Ista is bitter, prickly, mature, and complex; she may be one of my favorite heroines from the past year. As a side note, this is a great example of having a stable of female characters with divergent agendas who are not strictly divided into Heroine's Allies In Virtue or Evil Bitchy Villainnesses. I'm so pleased to know this book is so highly regarded in sff.
