This is the penultimate Vorkosigan book and really sums up the series. Dipplomatic immunity catches the last few dangling loose ends from earilier in the series but this is where the climax of the narrative arc of the series really takes place.

It's a romance novel on some fundamental level, the major conflicts are all centered on love and many splendored forms and complications it presents itself in human affairs.

It's also a political novel on some level, political intrigue is what moves the plot along. But the level I like this and much of Bujold's work best is where she looks at changes science fictional biotech makes on the a conservative society dragged ikicking and screaming in the future age. Her take on cloning (in previous novels in the series) and the continued consideration of uterine replicators (artificial wombs) should be read by anyone who cares about where biotech is going,.
