Review of Penric’s Fox by Lois McMaster Bujold
In the interests of full disclosure, I was sent an ARC of this novella by the publisher through NetGalley for review purposes. All my reviews, good, bad, or indifferent, are based on my own opinion and from my personal viewpoint. They are also spoiler free.
Lois McMaster Bujold is one of my all-time favorite authors and I will read anything she writes. That being said, she rarely disappoints.
This story of the World of the Five Gods starts with an attempt at relaxation which doesn’t last long. Penric and his associates are quickly involved in a murder mystery.
The investigation requires knowledge and skills from investigators, sorcerers, and shamans to resolve.
A lovely addition to the Penric tales.
It might be a bit difficult to enjoy as a stand-alone story without any background. I recommend you start at the first tale Penric’s Demon and catch up. It will be worth your time.
I give it 4 stars.
