Lois McMaster Bujold is one of my favorite authors and with Penric’s Demon she begins a series of fantasy novellas that introduce us to Penric, a young lord who accidentally invites a group of female demons to use his body as a host. He gives them the collective name of Desdemona and the two embark on a friendship and relationship of trust as they learn to rely on one another.

This is a simple story that is meant to introduce the characters and setting, which if you have read her World of the Five Gods trilogy will be a familiar one. At this point Penric is young and prefers to stay in the background but I suspect he will mature and develop as the series goes on. By the end of this story of friendship, faith and devotion, Penric and his demons have bonded.

I enjoyed this story and look forward to continuing on learning about this heart-warming alliance of human and demon and the magic that is sure to come.

I love everything Lois writes! These books were some of the first I read, and made an indelible impression. When I grow up I want to be Cordelia Naismith - brave, strong, intelligent, determined...
These particular books show a memorable culture clash and outstanding characters in all roles.
