Curse of Chalion

I have read the book The Curse of Chalion by Lois McMaster Bujold, and I would like to say I really like it a lot. I picked it up by accident, and when I read it, I fell in love with it. The story is about a former soldier and courier, Lupe dy Cazaril, betrayed by an unknown enemy and sold into slavery. He escapes his bondage and returns to the royal household he once worked at and was entrusted the duty of teaching the sister of the heir. He finds himself tangled in a web of politic and a dark curse that threatens the soul of the family he now works for. Did anyone else read this book and share the same interest?

Lois McMaster Bujold is one of my favorite writers. I enjoy her science fiction the most, but also like the fantasy like The Curse of Chalion (and related titles). But it's her Miles Vorkosigan books that keep me hooked; they are not only great space opera, but the humor is so fun. Komarr, one of the middle books in her series is actually one of the romantic books I've read, even though it's science fiction. Give the rest of her books a try!
