Overview


Two complete novels and a short novel in one large volume
:

Komarr—Miles Vorkosigan is sent to Komarr, a planet that could be a garden with a thousand more years of terraforming; or an uninhabitable wasteland, if the terraforming project fails. The solar mirror vital to the project has been shatteredby a ship hurtling off course, and Miles Vorkossigan has been sent to find out if it was an accident, or sabotage. Miles uncovers a plot that could exile him from Barrayar forever—and discovers an unexpected ally, one with wounds as deep and honor as beleaguered as his own.

A Civil Campaign—On Komarr, Miles met the beautiful Vor widow Ekaterin Vorsoisson, who has no intention of getting married after the heartbreak and betrayal of her first experience. But Miles has a cunning plan to change her mind. Unfortunately his clone-brother Mark and his cousin Ivan have cunning plans of their own, and the three-way collision of cunning plans threatens to undo Miles’s brilliant romantic strategy.

“Winterfair Gifts”—Miles and Ekaterin make elaborate preparations for their wedding. But Miles has an enemy who is plotting to turn the romantic ceremony into a festival of death.

    Komarr is a necessary preview to A Civil Campaign. It is a typical adventure for Miles. A Civil Campaign is much more personal than usual. It is also the most humorous of the Miles books. IMO, it is the best of the series.

    A Smart Hero

    Miles Vorksogian isn't the hero everyone wants to be. His deformities caused by the circumstances of his birth forces him to outwit and out think all the non-believers that are convinced he can't be as good as they are. In a militaristic world of perfection and beauty, Miles sets out to prove to the world that he can and is as capable (if not superior) to them all in a self-depracating manner.<BR/><BR/>AN EXCELLENT SERIES OF BOOKS!!

    fabulous tales

    ¿Komarr¿. Considered physically and mentally unfit for military duty any longer, Miles Vorkosigan is forced to leave the service he loves. However, his experiences obtain him work as a Barrayaran Empire Imperial Auditor handling top-secret special complicated cases with potential for far reaching damage. His current investigation is to learn whether a terraforming satellite that collided with an ore freighter near Komarr was deliberate as the planet is a hotbed of rebellion. To make his inquiry more difficult most Komarrans loathe his father, who brutally put down their last revolt. As he uncovers bribery and treason, Miles falls in love with the married enemy, Ekaterin Vorsoisson.--------------- ¿A Civil Campaign¿. Miles loves Ekaterin, but hesitates wooing her since he holds himself culpable as a widow maker when his actions led to her husband¿s death although he also rationalizes that her late spouse was corrupt. As he courts his beloved, his wacko clone brother Mark bugs him. Mark¿s latest get rich scheme involves 'butter bugs', but these cockroaches somehow got free and have infested their parents¿ house. As he tries to exterminate the bugs, Miles is accused of murder. Still he never loses sight of his objective, marrying Ekaterin. ------------- 'Winterfair Gifts'. Miles and Ekaterin are getting married at his family estate. One of his armsman, Roic, guards the Vorkosigan estate at night especially as the guests arrive for the nuptials. However, to his shock Roic is attracted to the dangerous Amazonian Sergeant Taura at a time when he cannot afford the distraction. Someone wants to kill Miles, Ekaterin or both.------ These two novels and the novella that make up this omnibus collection are fabulous tales that showcase MILES IN LOVE. Each entry is humorous yet serious with the novella ¿Winterfair Gifts¿ refreshingly told mostly by Roic¿s perspective. Lois McMaster Bujold is at her best with this trilogy.------------- Harriet Klausner
