Jennifer B. reviewed Ethan of Athos (Miles Vorkosigan, Bk 3) on
Helpful Score: 2
This book is wonderful, I hesitated to give it a five only because Bujold has other books that are even better, in particular the first 4 or 5 of the Vorkosigan series. Full of adventure, interesting characters that you won't find anywhere else - a truly original space opera. Enjoy, Jennifer
