About the Author

Lois McMaster Bujold is one of the most honored writers in the fields of science fiction and fantasy and has won five Hugo Awards and three Nebula Awards, including a Nebula Award for Falling Free, included in Miles, Mutants and Microbes. She immediately attracted attention with her first novel, Shards of Honor, which began her popular Vorkosigan series, and quickly followed it up with The Warrior’s Apprentice, which introduced young Miles Vorkosigan, one of the most popular characters ever in science fiction. Her two recent fantasy series for Harper-Collins have been top sellers, from which Paladin of Souls took home her latest Hugo Award. The mother of two, Ms. Bujold lives in Minneapolis, MN. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars a good Vorkosigan book Nov. 3 2010
Format:Hardcover
A good read although Miles fans may find it a bit more sedate than the usual manic adventures of their favorite galactic. Of course, Miles is older and is saddled by more responsability.

On the whole I found this story less gripping than usual. But a good read nonetheless.

4.0 out of 5 stars Return to form Feb. 13 2011
Format:Hardcover
It's been a while since the last Miles Vorkosigan book (in fact I believe Bujold had indicated a few years ago she felt she was done with them), but at long last he's back. If you aren't familiar with the series, this probably isn't the place to start; I'd recommend the Warrior's Apprentice (or Cordelia's Honor, which is about his mother and pre-dates the series).

It's an older Miles in this book; there are still hints of his manic personality and recklessness, but tempered by experience and responsibility now. Very little of the action-adventure style from earlier books - though there is still some action - but instead more of a focus on Miles gathering information and solving problems. Overall I think this book is better than the last couple in the series, but doesn't quite reach the heights of the early books. The ending hints that there is more to come. Worth reading for fans of the series.

As with all books in the Vorkosigan series, Ms. McMaster Bujold once again crafts an riveting story.

2.0 out of 5 stars Has Bujold lost her touch? Aug. 5 2011
Format:Hardcover
This story is more socio-political drama than military sci-fi (and, thus, unlike any of the others I've read in this series). Miles is more mature and the topic is more mature and the people are more mature and... I didn't like it.

I read these books for a fast, fun and frenzied look at people not so different than us living in worlds very different from ours and what I got in this book is mostly moralizing (oh, how bad it is to value cryo-preserved bodies for monetary gain instead of... well, not sure what happens in a society with stacks of dead people waiting to come back) and boring (like I care about the soap-opera activities of Jin and his pets? what does that have to do with anything other than to show some "human" side to the story).

Certainly it's not the light-hearted, fun and resolved Miles storyline I was expecting. I don't want someone else's morals, but thanks for the offer.

I wish the last 100 pages had been written like the last 500 words - at least then it would have had some pacing and angst.
