The Sharing Knife, Volume Four: Horizon (Mass Market Paperback)
The concluding volume in the epic fantasy saga from multiple Hugo Award-winning author Lois McMaster Bujold
A Lakewalker entrusted with protecting the populace from terrifying remnants of ancient magic, Dag Redwing Hickory never expected to fall in love with farmer girl Fawn Bluefield. When they joined in marriage, defying their kin, they bridged the perilous split between their peoples. Now Dags extraordinary maker abilities have grownalong with his fears about who and what he is becoming, and his frustration with the disdain in which Lakewalker soldier-sorcerers hold their farmer neighbors.
Fawn and Dags world is changing, and the traditional Lakewalker practices cannot continue to hold every malice at bay. At the end of their long journey home, the pair must answer the question theyve grappled with for so long: When the old traditions fail disastrously, can their untried new ways stand against their worlds deadliest foe?

Praise for The Sharing Knife, Volume Four: Horizon…
“[Bujold’s] eventful conclusion to [The Sharing Knife] series proves that her talent for storytelling persists regardless of genre.”
“As always, Bujold delivers us a world that is completely realized and populated with people, not characters . . . . The depth of both world and characters, even incidental ones, makes Horizon an engrossing, satisfying read and a fitting conclusion to the series.”
