Young Lord Penric now wears the white robes of the Bastard's Order, complete with shoulder braids marking him as a divine and sorcerer, while he pursues scholarly studies in the court of the Princess-Archdivine. His demon of disorder, Desdemona, is, of course, present, accounted for, and offering clever commentary, particularly when she grows bored. And so when a Locator of the Father's Order shows up on the Archdivine's threshold in need of a sorcerer for a journey and she volunteers Penric, at least Des is thrilled with the prospect of an adventure. As they travel into the mountains to locate Inglis, a shaman accused of murdering his best friend, the situation grows into a test for all of Penric's developing talents. Multiple-award-winner and bestselling author Lois McMaster Bujold returns to her World of the Five Gods, the setting of her acclaimed novels *The Curse of Chalion, Paladin of Souls,* and *The Hallowed Hunt*. Set four years after the events detailed in the Hugo and Locus Award finalist for Best Novella, *Penric's Demon,* Bujold's newest installment of Penric and Desdemona's tale is a breaktaking must-read novella for her legion of fans. **
