Miles’s longing for Elena, so thoroughly buried but so heart-breakingly real, was very touching and deeply moving. Elli Quinn notes his tension: Which made it tough to be a mercenary captain. As is typical of Miles’ missions, things didn’t go as planned, and the 1 prisoner lous was somehow multiplied into 10, My personal opinion is that this is one of the weakest books of the series so far.

Maybe less humorous than the previous book as trouble hits too close to home, but still a fun read.

Miles Vorkosigan continues to get in trouble and the series continues to be fun to read. I like that Miles isn’t the usual handsome or brawny hero you find in this genre. I love this author!!!

Brothers in Arms

It’s so much fun! Bujold you are also awesome for spinning another fun yarn that moves fast and still manages to think deep at nujold too, dropping things like The man who assumes everything is a lie is at least as mistaken as the one who assumes everything is true.
