Inhaltsangabe

Lord Miles Vorkosigan has a problem that all his new power can't solve: unrequited love for the beautiful Vor widow Ekaterin Vorsoisson. Ekaterin is violently allergic to marriage as a result of her first exposure. But, as Miles learned from his late career in galactic covert ops, if a frontal assault won't do, go to subterfuge.

Miles has a cunning plan, which, of course, has to be worked out in between District succession scandals and plans for the emperor's wedding. And if no battle plan survives first contact with the enemy, just imagine what all Miles' friends and relatives can do to his romantic strategy.

Hi-fi sci-fi: listen to more in the Vorkosigan saga.

Kritikerstimmen

"The latest Miles Vorkosigan adventure has him campaigning in four plots....Bujold weaves all four actions into a seamless whole that her faithful readers may rank among the best books in an outstanding series." ( Booklist)
"Bujold successfully mixes quirky humor with just enough action, a dab of feminist social commentary, and her usual superb character development in a sprightly SF romance that her many fans will find enormously satisfying." (Publishers Weekly)

This book has it all: sci-fi, sinister political plots and romance

This book has it all: sci-fi, sinister political plots and romance.

In the outstanding books about Miles this I a class of it’s own. A comedy, a political and social rollercoaster, a sci-fi opera. Just enjoy!

The funniest of the series

When I read it just after it was published I felt somewhat let down, because it was not so strong a book as "Komarr" or "Memory". Well, that may still be so, but in the meantime I discovered what a brilliant book this is.

It's subject is not only the campaign Miles wages to capture Ekaterine's heart and hand, there is much more: sub-plots and stories about Mark, Ivan, a count's succession struggle, the Imperial wedding ... It's just a great panorama of Barrayar: colorful, full of suspense and romance.

Also this is probably the funniest Vorkossigan book of them all. Some of the scenes are just hilarious! Some are almost too much: the scene when Miles gets his Ekaterin could be from a Frank-Capra-movie.

And the voice and laid-back style of Grover Gardner brings it all alive and makes listening to this great book just pure enjoyment.
