The writing was easy to follow, intricate plot, high-flying emotions, good characterizations, humor, pathos-- I can't wait to read the rest of the series.

someone once wrote something about each story being a complete story unto itself, was true.however,by not reading all the books in this series,you miss not only the growing maturity of"miles v k"as a person,but the" maturing"of the" plots"themself's.the worse thing i can say about the" VorKosigan series";it was like CHOCOLATE FOR THE BRAIN,for i now have to go on a diet......Bernard C Matos

The cover of these Lois McMaster Bujold compilations are, well, cheesy. You expect pulp fiction at the least. The actual books are superb. I got into Bujold slowly, starting with the Sharing Knife series which were also slow but gratifying though I continue to be more of a Sci-Fi than fantasy fan. So I was thrilled to find Cordelia's Honor and get carried away. Shards of Honor and Barrayar are both contained in this book and well worth the read, even if you started the Miles series much farther on. This tells of the meeting and romance of his parents as well as the tragedies which result in Miles' deformities. Bujold is simply a superb writer, whatever genre she chooses.

Cordelia is a quick-thinking captain from Beta planet on a scientific mission. Aral is from Barrayar, an intensely militaristic society, and his unit eventually takes Cordelia prisoner. But as their admiration of each other's honor grows, so do the complications around them. I found one section of the books slightly horrific; even though the intended rape did not actually occur, there was a lot of buildup and unnecessary detail. Later, Cordelia shows an unexpected ferocious motherhood streak; I liked her strong commitment to life for her baby, even though she knew he'd be far from perfect. I have some reservations about young teens reading this series, I didn't put it in my school library, but I enjoyed it myself.

You will just love Cordelia. This book sends you on a journey through a world of love and honor. Bujold introduces us to wonderful characters who you will love to spend time with and hear their stories. I couldn't wait to continue the journey...

Once upon a time, there was a bold, headstrong woman from a well ordered planet who loved adventure and exploration. One day she met a man from a planet full of barely civilized barbarians.. and then things got interesting. This book contains both 'Shards of Honor' and 'Barrayar', the first 2 books in the Vorkosigan Saga. Bujold does a magnificent job of developing her characters, drawing us inot their thoughts, feelings, hopes and fears, creating more than characters - they become people we are sorry to leave when we put the book down. (And if you think the story in THIS book is good, just wait till you meet their son..)
