Paladin of Souls (Chalion Series #2)

Paladin of Souls - Lois McMaster Bujold *happy sigh* There's nothing quite like rereading a book you read so long ago you don't remember much about it other than that it was AWESOME, and discovering it was just as amazing as you remembered. Ista is one of the best heroines in fantasy literature, for sure.Read this book! If you like fantasy, you will love this. It turns so many fantasy tropes on their heads, while still maintaining a firm place within the genre. I love it. Love love love. (I guess if you are a stickler for order, you should read The Curse of Chalion first, but this works decently as a stand-alone and is definitely the best in the trilogy.)
