Goodreads Monday: The Orphans of Raspay

Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme where we randomly select a book from our Goodreads To Be Read list and share it with the world. It’s hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners, so be sure to link back to her site so that we can all see what everyone plans to read!


The Orphans of Raspay (Penric and Desdemona #7)
by Lois McMaster Bujold
128 pages
Published July 2019 by Spectrum Literary Agency

From Goodreads: When the ship in which they are traveling is captured by Carpagamon island raiders, Temple sorcerer Penric and his resident demon Desdemona find their life complicated by two young orphans, Lencia and Seuka Corva, far from home and searching for their missing father. Pen and Des will need all their combined talents of mind and magic to unravel the mysteries of the sisters and escape from the pirate stronghold.


The Orphans of Raspay is the latest in Lois McMaster’s Hugo Award-winning World of the Five Gods series. Penric and Desdemona are fantastic characters, and while I keep meaning to track down a copy of The Orphans of Raspay, I keep neglecting to do so. I need to correct that soon.
