    New direction for Miles

    In Komar, Miles met Ekaterin while working as an Auditor with her uncle. In Civil Campaign, Miles woos the widowed Ekaterin while helping in the Council of Counts and doing his part in support of Emperor Gregor's wedding. It all ends well and is well worth reading. Miles new direction as an auditor is interesting. I will enjoy new books as well as I have previous ones.

    Fun, Fun, Fun

    Excellent continuation of Miles' (and Mark's) Story. Read the last chapter (not Epilogue) three times. Can't wait for the next.

    She does it again!

    Lois McMaster Bujold writes yet another great space opera which was impossible for me to put down. This is sci-fi, comedy, romance, and a all around page turning good read. I pray that Mrs. McMaster Bujold continues writing as I can hardly wait for the next adventure of Miles and his assorted companions.

    All's Fair...

    Being Miles, he treats love the same way he would a campaign strategy... of course, he wasn't expecting that Gregor's wedding, Mark's love life, Ivan's sordid past, and swarms of butter bugs would complicate his life this much. It may be illegal to enjoy a book this much. I was swept from one engrossing plot point to another, torn between hysterical laughter and sympathy for Miles, Mark, Ekaterin, and Kareen. While the story revolves around Miles' attempts to woo and win Ekaterin's heart, the intricate sub-plots unfold, gripping the reader in typical Bujold style. One of Ivan's past love affairs comes back to haunt him, unexpectedly setting the whole of Vor society in uproar, and he finds the population imbalance is *really* weighted against him now :-) Actually, Ivan displays unexpected intelligence in resolving an important plot element - some real character development for the boy at last. Gregor might find him some genuinely significant work to do in future, now that he's showing unexpected depth. Poor Ivan! All the other stuff one has come to enjoy in the Vorkosigan saga: deep political plots, romance, angst, humour, drama, intelligently written science; the Koudelka sisters play a prominent role, Cordelia resolves knotty problems in Betan style, and Ma Kosti cooks up a storm. Space opera at its very best!

    Further misadventures of the family Vorkosigan

    It's a comfortable read, with lots of mistaken assumptions, plotting and not a lot of action nor blood-shed. Great prose and a laugh. Poor Ivan. I want a Glorious Butterbug
