A good conclusion to the series.,
This review is from: Passage: Sharing Knife 3 (Hardcover)
A clear improvement from the second book, Passage concludes the trilogy with Dag and Fawn cutting the ties to both the Farmer and Lakewalker sides of their family, and starting out on a journey to the sea, to find their new selves after leaving the old roles behind.
Having seen almost an whole village of farmers succumb to an Malice out of ignorance (in book 2),Dag decides that the old lakewalker way of dealing with "civilians" must change, and sets out for a way to educate farmers about Lakewalker ways and "magic", and the threats their fighting, something that goes against all Lakewalker tradition.
Most of the book takes place while traveling on a riverboat down to the sea, and revolves around the companions they collect and meet along the way.
As always with Bujold, it's a well written book that draws you in and keeps you reading, but in comparison to her earlier works it feels a bit lacking in both characterisation and story, and overall feels a bit light.
An entertaining read, but not something that you want to reread frequently for the pleasure of it.
But overall a good book and good ending to the series.
(And if you thought the plot outline was a bit thin, I wanted to stay away from spoilers, as I felt the blurb on the book gave away to much :D)
