5.0 out of 5 stars Another Bujold Masterpiece, 31 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is most definitely a sequel and needs to be read with background knowledge of both of Mile's personae. A true tale of triumph out of tragedy. Used up hard and fast, betrayed by his own body, led into tragedy by fear of losing himself or his alter ego. I love the sense of internal battle as much as I despaired for its need. Yet this is not the whole of the book and a plot for power in ImpSec that topples the mighty Illyan reignites Miles sense of purpose. Old characters are brought back and dusted off, Dr Canuba is a linchpin in the problem solving process. Miles comes back from his funk mentally stronger than ever, the Dendarii are now forever denied him but he has a new persona in his pocket!

Not sure what I expected when I bought this, I was between books and bored. It surprised me by really being well thought out, disturbing and funny and the characters felt real.

So good to find a new author with such raw talent. Really looking forward to the final book, concluding the series. And of course what the author has up the sleeve for their next verbal adventure.

Never a dissappointment when you open a Bujold book. Vorkosigan series an absolute delight. Miles becomes real through her words.

A work, by a master of words and feelings. Bujold pulls you in and holds you rapt from first to last word. Every Vorkosigan book does it to you. Shards of Honor preceeds Barrayar and is a must, both should be read before the remaining books about Miles Vorkosigan.
Each book can and does stand alone, but, once you are hooked, and you WILL be, you will want to read them in order.

2.0 out of 5 stars Way too predictable, 22 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Starts real slow, no unexpected twists and turns. Plods predictably from begining to end. Not my cup of tea. Removed from device.
