Do you know that moment when you realize you're in the hands of a master storyteller? It's relaxing, in a way, because all the tension about whether-this-will-be-a-good-book-or-not just drains out of you, and you can marinate in what's happening, confident that whatever comes will be worth the trip.......more


After having previously read 2 novels and a novella in this series convoluted reading order (packaged together in Cordelia's Honour) I felt the series finally hit it's stride here as Miles Vorkosigan, the son of the previous novel's protagonists, took center stage. This collection had hints of a Bil......more


If I’m not mistaken Bujold ties Heinlein for the number of Hugo’s she has won. She is a diverse writer dabbling in both fantasy and science-fiction and managing to invest each genre with its own unique style. She is probably most well known Vorkosigan series featuring the energetic, and frequently t......more

I'm doing a reread of this series. Partly as a treat in-between Hugo reads this year and as a treat due to personal yuck going on. People following my reading will notice I'm also rereading

. Their writing styles and topics as well as sense of humor comfort me. I believe my husband may h......more


“Aren't you going to get in trouble for that?" "I'll worry about that if we live through this."

2020 review: Great writing. I especially like Bujold’s self-depreciating humor. Miles is about as far from typical space opera heroes as McMasters could make him. Intentionally.



I’m very late to the party, but I’m so glad I’ve finally discovered this series. Similar to the Liaden Universe books by Lee and Miller, the Vorkosigan Saga has been running for quite a while, with a good dozen-plus books to its name by now; and also like the Liaden series, it tends to focus on inte......more


This is an omnibus edition that contains full novels The Warrior’s Apprentice and The Vor Game and the short story The Mountains of Mourning. From the previous book to the beginning of Warrior’s Apprentice, Miles Vorkosigan has grown up (well he’s 18) and usurps the literary center stage from his pa......more

This is easily one of my favorite books ever. Honestly, I didn't think it would be. My college roommate hyped it up like crazy, so when I finally got to reading it, I was expecting disappointment because it didn't seem like it was going to be as good as she promised.

But it was.



Review from:

For someone who likes Science Fiction it might seem strange that I'm only recently acquainted with the irrepressible Miles Vorkosigan. Better late than never though. I've just burned my way through the first three books featuring the little guy. Maybe it is for the best thou......more


3.5 stars

is awesome: 4.5 stars.

The novels which precede and follow it are also fun, but lack

's thematic and emotional resonance.
