Masquerade in Lodi

Listen to a sample

What to expect

Bastard’s Eve is a night of celebration for most residents in the canal city of Lodi—but not for sorcerer Learned Penric and his Temple demon Desdemona, who find themselves caught up in the affairs of a shiplost madman, a dangerous ascendant demon, and a very unexpected saint of the fifth god.

This novella falls between “Penric’s Fox” and “Penric’s Mission” in the internal chronology of the Penric & Desdemona tales.

Critics Review

  • “Delightful…Another winner in Bujold’s already strong series.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review) on The Prisoner of Limnos
  • “Bujold couldn’t characterize badly if threatened with a firing squad.”
