in, I think it was Penric's Fox, Penric petitioned his Princess Divine
to stay and study shamanism, thinking the extra abilities would be
useful. And in one of the books, possibly that one, we also learn
about the cost of using shamanic magic, i.e., blood (female shaman
whose name I forget who "magicked" the fox...)
