Publisher's Summary

In this sequel to the novella Penric's Mission, the injured Penric, a Temple sorcerer and learned divine, tries to guide the betrayed General Arisaydia and his widowed sister, Nikys, across the last 100 miles of hostile Cedonia to safety in the Duchy of Orbas.

In the town of Sosie, the fugitive party encounters unexpected delays, and even more unexpected opportunities and hazards, as the courtesan Mira of Adria, one of the 10 dead women whose imprints make up the personality of the chaos demon Desdemona, comes to the fore with her own special expertise.

    Story
    "Lukewarm at best!"
    Would you try another book from Lois McMaster Bujold and/or Grover Gardner?

    I usually really enjoy both Lois McMaster Bujold and Grover Gardner. The story was so milk toast that I don't believe Gardner had much to work with.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Probably a mystery


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Grover Gardner?

    Yes, he is usually very entertaining.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Mira's Last Dance?

    The problem wasn't editing but the lack of character development.


    Any additional comments?

    I think this book spent too much time trying to force moral lessons so it wasn't fun or interesting.

    "A GOOD STORYLINE"

    Enjoyable as always from Lois Bujold but IMO this very...short novella should have been incorporated into book three. Especially when the story continued from book three to book four. I have always enjoyed Ms Bujold's books but I was a bit disappointed that these novellas on Penric in the Five Gods Series came out as novellas. It would have been better if all the four novellas been published as one book! But all the same the plot was good and was well narrated/performed by Grover Gardner.
