Review updated on 16.02.2017.
A buddy read with Choko and Maria.
We finally meet the main hero of the series, Miles Vorkosigan. In the beginning of the book he failed his physical test in a military academy - he had a lot of birth defects; their origin was explained in the previous installment. He also happened to be a son and a grandson of great military leaders, as such he was expected to excel in military field and his expulsion from the academy was a huge disappointment for everybody first of all his grandfather. Miles decided to take a break and visit his mother's home-planet. It began innocently enough, but before he knew it, he was a happy owner of an obsolete spaceship
and an imaginary mercenary company.
This is one of the best space opera I read lately - and it so happened that I read quite a few good ones this year. It has everything: action, betrayals, romance, intrigues, space and ground battles, more action. It also has great characters and character development. Miles himself matured a lot and so are some of his friends. I would like to mention his cousin Ivan as a great newcomer (he was just being born in the previous book). This is book #3 in Vorkosigan saga, but it can be read as a standalone.
It was my first exposure to Ms. Bujold, definitely not the last. Somehow it reminded me of the following well-known space opera in another media:
Highly recommended for any SF fans, 4 solid stars. Seriously if you have not read it, you missed a lot. I would like to make a long story short, say again that the novel is great and shut up right now.
