An excellent story of our hero, Miles Vorkosigan, maturing from field hero and covert operations master to a more cerebral role befitting a maturing individual. I greatly enjoyed his altering perceptions and relationships with his family. Ivan is finally getting a begrudging respect and Ma and Pa Vorkosigan and being treated like the parents of a 30 year old with a touch of distance in the relationship. Ms. Bujold has wrapped up the escapades of a young man and has set Miles on the road of a new life. I can't wait for the new challenges she sets for her character. I just hope that once in awhile she "back-fills" a few "Little Admiral" stories for our enjoyment.
