Revue de presse

“Compelling . . . Bujold excels at creating interesting and sympathetic characters, and this story will satisfy readers who enjoy romance as much as adventure.” (Publishers Weekly)

Présentation de l'éditeur

“A thoughtful and skillful author.”
Cleveland Plain Dealer

One of the most respected writers in the field of speculative fiction, Lois McMaster Bujold has won numerous accolades and awards, including the Nebula and Locus Awards as well as the fantasy and science fiction genre’s most prestigious honor, the Hugo Award for Best Novel, four times (most recently for Paladin of Souls). With The Sharing Knife series, Bujold creates a brand new world fraught with peril, and spins an extraordinary romance between a young farm girl and the brave sorcerer-soldier entrusted with the defense of the land against a plague of vicious malevolent beings. In Passage, volume three in Bujold’s breathtaking saga of love, loyalty, and courage in the face of bigotry and dark magic, the devoted wedded lovers Fawn Bluefield and Dag Redwing Hickory are joined by new companions in their quest to find peace, acceptance, and a place in a most dangerous world.

C'est en 1986 que Lois McMaster Bujold débarque sur la scène de l'imaginaire avec la série des Miles Vorkosigan, l'un des plus populaires Space Opera de notre temps. Et avec Bujold, populaire rime avec qualité, puisqu'elle collectionne aussi les prix littéraires (Hugo et Nébula). Depuis Le Fléau de Chalion,  elle s'est imposée au premier plan de la Fantasy. Un tour de force, fourmillant d'inventions et remarquable de justesse, qui enchante les fervents de Robin Hobb, pour ne citer qu'eux.

Format: Poche
Dans le tome 3, le voyage de Dag et de Fawn les amène au contact d'un troisième groupe de gens, ni fermiers ni lakewalkers, qui sont les les mariniers qui assurent le commerce sur le grand fleuve navigable qui traverse cette région.

Nos deux héros s'embarquent sur un bateau à fond plat qui fait le trajet sur les bancs de sable et dans le delta du fleuve et ils décident d'aller voir l'océan, tout en payant leur passage par leur travail.

Le jeune frère de la mariée (un fermier donc) décide aussi d'échapper à l'atmosphère étouffante et villageoise de la ferme et d'aller voir le monde, un lakewalker fuyard en bisbille avec son camp décide de suivre Dag le vieux patrouilleur et de rejoindre leur équipée également... Et ils vont découvrir le monde plus avant (en même temps que le lecteur). Ils vont enseigner les différences entre les peuples et briser les tabous, en utilisant la magie lakewalkers pour soigner des fermiers, en racontant les secrets d'un peuple à l'autre et d'une manière générale, en luttant contre les habitudes pour promouvoir l'harmonie entre les peuples...

Ils vont recueillir divers personnages sur leur chemin, de toutes origines, qui va faire un groupe assez divers et bariolé, et le bateau va devenir de plus en plus surpeuplé... Le moteur de l'intrigue, cette fois, c'est la chef du bateau, Berry, qui cherchait son frère et son père qui avaient disparu depuis un an sur la rivière, et qui va finir par trouver des indices sur ce qu'il est advenu d'eux, ouvrant ainsi l'action principale de ce volume, que je ne déflorerai pas ici...

And the beat goes on 18 juin 2009
Par S. Pedrick - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
I really like that the author didn't stop after the hero wins the girl. I always like to know what happens after, do they accomplish anything else, what challenges do they face? This storyline delivers. Dag and Fawn start off alone but end up gathering a group of misfits and fellow adventures that become true friends. And yes, they encounter more prejudice and treachery (lakewalkers & farmers), but experience moments of hilarity and lightheartedness.
Dag and Fawn grow into their union learning more about strengthening a budding relationship that goes beyond the marriage bed. They even learn new skills that will help them reach their ultimate goal, IF they decide to continue to the city of the old ones.

So I wanted to write a review... 5 février 2009
Par Gary S. Jordan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Lois Bujold writes fantasy with the same skill and intensity that she writes science fiction, and she's an award winner many times over. Passage is book 3 of 4 in The Sharing Knife series. You don't need to read the first two (but why would you not want to?) to enjoy Passage, there's enough background to make it independant.

Dag is a Lakewalker who's broken with his kin to marry Fawn, a farmer girl. Lakewalkers are the weilders of such magical powers as exist for humans in this world. Farmers are... everyone else. To be fair, there are halfbreeds and farmers with natural abilities. The Lakewalker rule is, Lakewalkers are lakewalkers, farmers are farmers, and never the twain... and Dag has broken that rule in a major way. You see, he wants to become a healer to farmers, which no lakewalker has survived. (If you don't cure everything every time, the farmers think you've hexed them or done it deliberately, and things can get ugly.)

And besides that, lakewalkers are secretive - and Dag is not. He wants farmers to understand both the abilities and the limits of those abilities.

The other aspect is Malices (blight bogles in farmerese.) Out of the ground from whence they appear, they are more powerful mages than any lakewalker, and only lakewalkers have the ability to fight them and kill them.

The rest is impossible to review without spoilers, save that Dag and Fawn and a growing cast of fellow adventurers are traveling down the great river to its mouth, from adventure to adventure.

Floating down the river...peaceful as can be 8 mai 2010
Par David Roy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
I've been a big fan of Lois McMaster Bujold since I discovered her Miles Vorkosigan series, but lately she's taken a turn to the fantastic instead. Some might even say she's gone a bit too far down the road and into the Romance category. Whatever your feelings are, though, her "Sharing Knife" series has been polarizing amongst her fans. Now that I've read the third book in the series, Passage, I have to wonder if Bujold is just playing with various styles and genres, experimenting and offering up the results to her fans like a television chef who decides to try something different. If so, it's a damned good thing that she's so skilful at it.

Passage is essentially a "road" novel (though, in this case, I guess it would be a "river" story), with Dag and Fawn making a trek down the river so that Dag can show his new bride the ocean, something this farmgirl has never seen. In the process, they pick up companions (Fawn's brother, for one), find passage on a riverboat, and share adventures with everybody. A running theme through the novel, one that ties together everything that happens, is Dag's experimentation with the Lakewalker magic and his newfound abilities with it. All Lakewalkers are able to do things with the "ground" that all living beings have, but he's discovered that he's capable of even more, some of it frighteningly close to what the Malices these Lakewalkers are bound to destroy can do. As they journey down the river, Dag learns new things about his abilities while he and Fawn continue to explore their own relationship.

I'll get one criticism of this novel out of the way that I'm sure is being made by many other readers of Passage. There really isn't much of a "plot" to this book. Instead, there are a bunch of little stories that don't really relate to each other except for the fact that they may provide even more companions for Dag, Fawn, and the riverboat crew. The theme of Dag's exploration of his powers is really the only thing that ties all of this together. Otherwise, I could see this book as a series of television episodes, linked together by the characters involved but not having much to do with each other.

Once I got used to that idea, though, I found that the book flowed very smoothly and I enjoyed each individual piece as well as how they affected our heroes. There is actually one other plotline running through the novel, which I'm sure will be dealt with in the final novel: Dag's determination to bring the "Farmers" and "Lakewalkers" together in at least some form of understanding. He continues to make strides in this desire every time he heals one of the other Farmers on the river, or most importantly as he explains in great detail some of the Lakewalker traditions that they've habitually kept hidden from the Farmers. There's every indication that he makes an impression on the people around him, but the jury's still out on whether this will bring about a societal shift. And we see no indication of how the Lakewalkers themselves will be reacting to this (though we do see the horrified, and then slowly begrudging feelings of the two Lakewalkers who end up joining the crew).

Bujold's characterization skills are masterful once again. Every character in this novel, even the bit players, is at least somewhat interesting, and she does a wonderful job with the slowly increasing number of crewmembers and friends that Dag and Fawn accumulate. Berry, the riverboat captain that Fawn befriends and who takes the couple onto her boat, is exceptionally well done, on a quest to find her missing father and betrothed but still alternately witty and tough, depending on the situation. Fawn's brother Whit really comes into his own as well, annoying at first but slowly becoming the man he desperately wants to become.

For those fans who were put off by the "romance" trappings of the first novel, and even a little bit in the second novel, rest assured that they aren't here now. Passage doesn't even have any sex scenes, instead fading to black or just mentioning it cursorily, no worse than any other fantasy or science fiction book with a romance in it. They are still exploring each other, getting to know things that were unknown before, and Fawn is still trying to understand how Lakewalkers work. Others who found their relationship "cloying" in the previous books may have the same problem here, but I don't think so. Fawn's wide-eyed innocence has been tempered by her experiences and their relationship seems a lot more normal this time around.

In exploring the river and Dag's magic, Bujold shows us even more of this world she has created, giving us more detail on how "ground" works and how it's manipulated by the Lakewalkers. There isn't an overarching villain in the book, but the main one we get toward the end of the novel shows us even more how Lakewalkers work, and we see firsthand one of their most important rituals. While we don't see as much of the Farmers, we do see even more how they interact with the Lakewalkers and their prejudices that are borne from ignorance.

Overall, I found Passage to be a hard book to put down, especially near the end. The final 100 pages are especially gripping, but Bujold's characterization carries through the first part of the book. The mini-stories are interesting, but they would be much less so without interesting characters to keep you going. Don't worry about there not being much of a "plot" in the book. There's definitely enough that Bujold's strong writing will get you through. Just sit back and enjoy the ride down the river that Bujold takes you on. You'll be glad you did.

A leisurely read 7 mars 2009
Par S. Lyn Hill - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Bujold is one of my favorite authors, but Passage is not one of her action-packed hilarity-filled page-turners. There are adventures on this river journey and the kind of writing that makes all her books worth reading, but it's a leisurely book that moves with the depth and lack of haste of the river. The Sharing Knife series is, in general, more romantic and less action-oriented than Bujold's Vorkosigan series, but this book has less action than the first two books in the Sharing Knife series. I love the characters and the questions raised by the book--I just hope the pace of the next Sharing Knife installment does a better job of keeping me awake.

Read These Books! 25 juillet 2010
Par Dalton J. Fitzgerald - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
If you're like me, you probably first encountered Lois McMaster Bujold through the Vorkosigan saga; and having devoured that, you are now curious about her other work and looking to expand your horizons. All I can say is - look no further! "The Sharing Knife" is a magnificent little tetrology, particularly showcasing Bujold's gift for rich and fascinating characterizations.

Now, a word of warning - this is not Miles we're talking about. The pacing of these books is much less manic than what you are familiar with if you are fresh from the Vorkosiverse. I think it's a mistake to say these books `plod' in any sense of the word, however; the pacing fits the subject matter and the characters at hand (rural farmers and tribesmen all). It is not always instantly apparent that what the characters are doing (mundane though it may seem) is in fact deeply relevant to the plot, but as the story unfolds, all the disparate elements come together into a truly remarkable work. Read these books and stick with them - you will be rewarded a thousandfold!
