あらすじ・解説

Lakewalker Barr Foxbrush returns from two years of patrolling the bitter wilds of Luthlia against the enigmatic, destructive entities called malices, only to find that the secret daughter he'd left behind in the hinterland of Oleana has disappeared from her home after a terrible accusation. The search for her will call on more of Barr's mind and heart than just his mage powers, as he tries to balance his mistakes of the past and his most personal duties to the future. A stand-alone story set in the world of the Sharing Knife.

Barr, How You Have Grown

Lois McMaster Bujold brings us a new tale from the World of the Sharing Knife and I love it!

"Knife Children" picks up Barr's story approximately 12 years after the ending of Horizon. It was a wonderful revisit of a fun loving and enthusiastic character who is now a bit older and wiser.

I enjoyed Tim Campbell's narration and his portrayal of Barr's personality and moods was perfect. The story telling timing and rhythm was a lot like that of Grover Gardner, the narrator of The Vorkosigan Saga and may other wonderful books.

The Sharing Knife series was my first exposure to a novel written by LMB and I instantly fell in love with this fascinating world and characters. This of course lead to my discovery of LMB's other series, including The Vorkosigan Saga which has remained as one of my top five series of all time.

Great addition to series

I’m so happy that LMB has been moved creatively to write an addition to the Sharing Knife series!
We get to visit with Barr 12 years later and find out how he has matured; and we get to find out what happened with his daughter.
The quality of LMB’s writing is so good that I really appreciate it when she has something new to add to the worlds she has created. She’s got emotional intelligence down pat, and it’s a pleasure to read her books. Bujold is on my shortlist of master storytellers that I check regularly to see if there’s anything new.
I don’t care what genre you consider your favorite, she should be on your reading list, too. Yes, that good.
Recommend.

A Pleasure

Spend a few hours with some really likable characters in an interesting world. The narrator did a great job, too. I’ve read or listened to everything LMB has published. I’m grateful for everything she writes.

Enriches the story

I’m not sure if it’s because I’m Southern but I found the rhythm of the story improved by settling the speed to .75. That said the story was excellent, the narrator gave a lot of emotional depth to the characters, and it has made a definite enriching addition to the series. Highly recommended.

Bujold continues the Sharing Knife story ln a very satisfying tale

There is action, great characters who face the the results of past mistakes it is a pleasure to see a character grow to such a person
But the story telling makes the journey both physically and emotionally an adventure

Nice 'coming of age' tale.

This narrator becomes invisible in the best way. The slight drawl adds to the sense of place.

A loose end tied off nicely

Good story other than the expense

A well crafted return to the world and characters of The Sharing Knife, flaws only by it’s brevity.. I hope for more stories in this universe, just prefer them to either be book length or less expensive.

Fan of Author and Series

I was excited for new book set in the Sharing Knife world. Unfortunately this book was a disappointment. It lacked any real substance the characters seemed flat. I like the idea of telling Barr's story I feel this effort didn't do him justice.
