So good that I'm keeping it!

Really, this was one of my favorite Miles Vorkosigan stories to date in an exceptional series. Miles finally begins to know himself and like what he finds. Miles must face himself after being discharged from ImpSec after falsifying documentation to secure his position with the Dendarii fleet. If he flees Barrayar to return to his identity as Admiral Naismith, he will be charged with treason and lose his connections to Barrayar forever. Even his parents are betting that the pull of the Little Admiral is too strong for him to resist. Miles has faced all kinds of dangers and challenges, but never faced himself like this before. He is having an identity crisis.

All the orbitting characters are advanced as well, especially Simon Illyan, who shares the spotlight with Miles in this story. Simon Illyan loses his memory chip, and also suffers an identity crisis of his own. It is this crisis that helps Miles reconcile his two identities at long last.

I also enjoyed Mile's interactions with Ivan and Gregor. Really, everyone is coming into their own.

What Can I say about This book other then fantastic. I have become a fan of Lois's writting. Her style reaches right out and captures me from page one to the end. I never feel like she is just providing page filler. Everything she writes has a purpose and point. Memory carries on Miles Vorkosigans adventure thru the trials and tribulations of his turbulent yet adventure filled life. Miles claims to be an adrenaline junky with good proof. He settles for nothing less then the most extreme in all things he does. Even Love!

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

Not my favorite in the series, but a good read none the less. Miles loses his job in Impsec Security, but still ends up in the middle of solving a conspiracy - of course :-)

Great story, keeps you involved. Should be read as part of a series but stands well on its own.

Ones of the later Miles V.'s adventures. I have found that I have enjoyed the older Miles as much as the earlier ones. All set on on Barrayar and just as fun as any of his space exploits. Miles gets to be the unlikely hero once again by figuring out what is going on with Simon Illyan and the security services. Admiral Naismith does have to be retired though. Sigh!

This entire series is excellent. Can't recommend many books or series of books as highly for sheer readability and great adventure. Characters are well developed and likeable, planetary societies are interesting and diverse.
