I've been reading the Miles portion of the Vorkosigan Saga and giving the books 3 stars for average. In my rating system, a 3 star book is neither wonderful nor awful. I like it, but it's just ok. 2 stars is not ok, in spite of what the little box says that pops up with your hover the cursor over 2 stars. But that's just my system. 1 star is I hated it, and 5 stars is I LOVED it! So I have to give this one four stars because I really liked it. I've kept asking myself why I kept reading when I was only giving the books 3 stars, but there was something about Miles that made me keep going. He was just likable enough and just outrageous enough to keep me wondering what the hell he was going to do next!

This is by far the best of the Miles books so far. He's grown up. He's less frenetic, just as smart, and the book is peppered with poignant moments as well as plenty of Bujold's dry wit. A very good read.
