Read full description of the books:
A buddy read with Choko and Maria.
In the last novella (chronologically) the Dendarii mercenary fleet took some serious beating and manage to get a mighty Empire seriously pissed off. The result: there was a really nice juicy reward for Miles Vorkosigan aka Admiral Naismith and the fleet had to escape into a remote peaceful place for much-needed repairs.
From the moment I began reading the series I wondered what happened to good old mother Earth.
Here my question was finally answered as the remote peaceful place happened to be our own planet - its future version that is. Miles being Miles, he stumbled right in the middle of conspiracy involving his own Empire; a long way from it I might add. Once again because this is Miles we are talking about this happened to be his least significant problem. His payment for the last job disappeared somewhere and he had no money to pay for the repairs and medical treatment of his injured crew.
He also had to keep himself and his alter ego Admiral Naismith as two separate people; it would take pages and paged if I try to explain the complications resulting in people realizing these two are the same person. So he had what he thought a brilliant idea and explained that Admiral Naismith is his illegal clone. This brought even more severe (and almost lethal) unexpected complications to Miles' life.
My personal opinion is that this is one of the weakest books of the series so far. I almost gave the book 3 stars, but some events in the very end made me raise the rating and believe me: I grumbled a lot doing it. It seems my low opinion is echoed by at least one of my buddy readers as Maria mentioned 3 stars as well.
You might have guessed the good parts: interesting plot, great characters, and equally great locations (hey, I think our planet is severely underrated in a lot of space opera books). My job here is to talk about weak parts. Miles brooded too much for my tastes and these parts brought aforementioned exciting plot to a screeching halt.
There was one cliche of literature used which was old at the time they began writing The Epic of Gilgamesh. We all know and really hate this one: a good guy captures a bad guy after lots and lots of troubles, looks at him, takes a pity and lets the baddy go only to get stabbed in the back by him a couple of pages later. One example of such would be Elric of Melniboné; I am sure any reader can come up with his own.
The set up of this book gives me an idea I can predict exactly what would happen in the next one and somehow it lowers my enthusiasm about that read. I hope I am wrong though.
