really liked it
bookshelves: science-fiction
Read in July, 2009

This book really is "the rest of the story" of Shards of Honour. The main characters, Cordelia and Aral, are more fully developed and their relationship is more nuanced. The other central characters, Piotr, Drou, and Kou, really come to life. I found the history and culture of Barrayar to be more developed as well, and that helps with understanding the characters' attitudes and actions.

I'm looking forward to getting to know Miles as I read more of this series, but I will miss Cordelia and Aral and hope they make more than cameo appearances in the upcoming books.
