  • Not up to snuff

    Plodding plot. Had to make myself finish it. Nothing exciting happened at all, not even when Miles came to visit. :(

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A different Vorkosigan story

    A good read, lacking the usual spasms of Miles in the story arc, giving Cordelia a send off into retirement that is exciting but much less of a struggle than her previous life with Aral.

  • Sci-fi lover

    Seems like a midway point or maybe a book that should have been a short story. As a result it is choppy and not cohesive. Not nearly as good as other books.

  • The Vorkosigan saga's last episode? I hope not!

    I came across Jole's name as I re-read "Captain Vorpatril's Alliance", and it wasn't too difficult to figure out who the 'Red Queen' was. I thought that the story had a bit of a slow start, but it evolved quite nicely, as Ms. Bujold's works have done in the past. I have noticed recently that books in other on-going sagas that I have read have a decreased numberof chapters--is this perhaps because the author is running out of ideas, and wants to spin rhem out? I had thought that with Aral's death in "Croburn" , there might be a story in Miles-as-Count, and the development of his family, and perhaps this is yet to come. All in all, I enjoyed the story, and hope to see more in the future.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Not at all like the other novels in the saga

    Not at all like her other Vokosigan novels. Plot is very slow, no excitement, no mystery or surprises. I found it quite boring and disappointing. I re-read the other Vorkosigan novels regularly but will not be re-reading this one. Hard enough to get through the first time.

    Thanks for your feedback!
