*Updated chronology! PENRIC'S MISSION is now Book 4 in the Penric & Desdemona series*

In his thirtieth year, Penric fell in love with light...

Learned Penric, a sorcerer and divine of the Bastard's Order, travels across the sea to sunlit Cedonia on his first covert diplomatic mission, to attempt to secure the services of a disaffected Cedonian general for the Duke of Adria.  However, nothing is as it seems: Penric is betrayed and thrown into a dungeon, and worse follows for the general and his kin.  Penric's narrow escapes and adventures -- including his interest in a young widow -- are told with Bujold's remarkable energy, wit and humor.  Once again, Bujold has created unforgettable characters and a wondrous, often dangerous world of intrigue and sorcery.  Fourth novella in the Penric and Desdemona series.
