A very good book by the author of the Vorkosigan saga. It's a fresh, new universe and Bujold does an excellent job of not explaining too much. The societal structure and, most importantly, the theology of this world are revealed throughout the entire book.
Theology and broken people are the focus of this book. The hero, Cazaril, is a broken man at the start of the book and through his ponderings we learn about the gods of this realm and the role they play in the society. Especially towards the end I felt the explanations were a bit vague, but this didn't hurt my overall impression of the book, which was very good.
