Review: The Hallowed Hunt


The Hallowed Hunt
The Hallowed Hunt by Lois McMaster Bujold
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This one might have earned three stars if the first two books in the Chalion series hadn’t been so amazing. With THE HALLOWED HUNT I too often found myself wanting it to be over. The theology that was so fascinating in THE CURSE OF CHALION and THE PALADIN OF SOULS was twisted, confusing, and kind of boring in this one. There were wolves and horses and leopard ghosts being trapped in human bodies, but now it wasn’t such a bad thing. (Didn’t even seem unique this time with just about everybody having at least one critter soul in them.)

Fortunately, since the three books of the series are only loosely linked, this one being kind of a stinker doesn’t diminish the wonder and excellence of the first two.
