Spirit Ring/Bujold, Lois M/Paper/0671578707/S049-D1
Brought up by her widowed father, legendary creator of truly enchanted objets d'art, Fiametta was a good and faithful daughter... if perhaps a little wild. She wanted desperately to be more than her father's unpaid and untrained apprentice; she wanted to use the magic that she knew lay within her. But despite all tears and pleadings, Master Beneforte remained more likely to have her scrub the kiln than help create a magic chalice. After all, it was a great waste to train a mere daughter beyond the needs of the moment.
But all that changed with the flash of the dagger that ripped her father's patron from the world. Soon father and daughter were running for their lives, and not long after Fiametta was running alone - and all that could save her was her own single magical creation.
"Enthralling dark fantasy." - Publishers Weekly.
"The Spirit Ring is solidly grounded in human psychology and the ways of the real world, even when it ventures into dealings with ghosts, demons, kobolds, and the like. It takes place in a setting expansive enough to allow raw horror and a sense of the ridiculous, along with tension, beauty, and fun. Once again, a palpable hit!" - Faren Miller, Locus.
