Bujold's characters continue to entertain! As Emperor Gregor's wedding draws near, love is in the air. Miles, Mark, Ivan and the Koudelka girls are trying to pick partners and, of course, craziness ensues. If you have been following the Vorkosigan Adventures, you won't want to miss this one. If you haven't, they are wonderful books, but you should start with an earlier book like "Cordelia's Honor".

Space Opera at its Finest. Man can Lois McMaster Bujold write and Miles is the perfect hero.

Up to Bujold's usual high standards! A little different than her other works, but still good, tightly plotted and thoroughly enjoyable.

Of all the Vorkosigan books, this one indulges the reader more than any other. Really delightful romantic comedy, with only a little plotty drama thrown in. Like Bujold's other books, it explores themes of identity, gender and relationship and how they are connected to the individual's actual body.

I wasn't sure about this book. It is set in Barrayar during the lead-up to the Emperor's wedding which I thought would contain a lot of politicking among the Council of Counts which had the potential to be boring. Boy, was I surprised. I stayed up practically all night to finishing it, giggling all the way. What great fun. Between Miles' and Ekaterin's romance and Mark's new business venture plus a lot of really crazy Barrayans it was pure chaos. Miles sorts it out all in the end, of course. Highly recommended. Gregor did managed even get married.
