My brief overview ~ Well-plotted and character development intriguing. High adventure, although not very subtle management of the mechanics during the action. Some injuries seemed to pass off terribly readily. As well, the concept of living-dead and using that connection was rather brilliantly devised.
Overall, the story was engaging and the main character (Ista dy Chalion) was really well-wrought. Her escape from the dominating family brings a sense of realism to this chronicle. A few sequences in the action don't seem to compute well but overall, a much tighter story than The Hallowed Hunt. ( )

Lois McMaster Bujold's works are always worth reading, but this book came to me at the perfect time in my life. What's not to like about the story of a middle-aged widow who takes to the open road to escape the dreary limits of her life and finds herself unexpectedly immersed in spiritual growth and adventures?

The Chalion books are very different from the Vorkosigan series, being centered around a unique theology and spiritual adventures instead of space opera. I would enjoy spending the depth of time with characters like Ista that Bujold devoted to the Vorkosigans, but even this relatively small story is deeply satisfying. ( )

"Once, she had been her parents' daughter. Then great, unlucky Ias's wife. Her children's mother. At the last, her mother's keeper. Well, I am none of these things now. Who am I, when I am not surrounded by the walls of my life?"

Paladin of Souls is the second book in Bujold's World of the Five Gods series. Technically it can be read standalone as the story is wholly contained, has all the information needed to understand the nuances of the world and only references the first novel that aren't plot impacting. If you're looking for a fantasy novel starring a mature, middle aged woman with demons and gods mucking about, this is the book for you. Ista's story had me hooked immediately.

Dowager Royina Ista is questioning what to do with her life. Previously believed to be mad though in reality just god cursed, the feeling of being stuck and believing her life has no purpose is slowly driving Ista mad in actuality. Unable to put up with the condescension of her keepers any longer, Ista decides to go on a pilgrimage to escape castle life. It's not long before Ista learns that while you can run away to a different location, problems eventually find a way back to you, especially when gods are involved.

Ista is such a great character and one that's easy to identify with. Who hasn't had that same feeling of being at a crossroads in life, unsure where to go next, unsure if your life has purpose at all and just wanted to run away from everything? I know I've been there a few times. As Ista sets off on her journey a bigger mystery starts to unfold. Ista is up for the challenge and encounters a great supporting cast along the way. There are plenty of clues as to where the mystery is going, several I picked up on, a few I missed and were nice surprises.

A small warning. There is an apparent love triangle early on. If you hate that trope please push through. It ends up not being what it first appears at all.

If I had one gripe with the book it is that after being incapacitated for two months Ilvin is able to immediately go into battle no problems. It's funny how something so minor feels far fetched in a story about gods and demons but there you go.

I absolutely loved this book. This having being my second time reading her works, I love Bujold's writing style and am firmly a fan now. I need to check out some of her other series. ( )

Ista leaned forward between the crenellations atop the gate tower, the stone gritty beneath her pale hands, and watched in numb exhaustion as the final mourning party cleared the castle gate below.
