From Library Journal
The Reader's Chair furthers its excellent and comprehensive coverage of Hugo Award-winning Bujold's signature series with this latest installment in the operatic Miles Vorkosigan adventure saga. With the short story "The Borders of Infinity" as a point of departure, Barrayaran lord Miles, his alter ego Admiral Naismith, and his army of Dendarii mercenaries arrive on Earth for much needed repairs following an intrepid covert rescue of an entire Cetagandan POW camp. While on Earth, Miles is confronted with some of the most intriguing and complex plot and psychological developments involving a clone of himself, assassination attempts, and the outing of Miles's dual identities. Stalwart regulars Elli Quinn and Ivan Vorpatril are back for another hitch in addition to some fascinating new characters. Veteran readers Michael Hanson and Carol Cowan once again narrate, with Hanson seamlessly combining the demanding expository chores with his deft and considerable vocal range with multiple characters. The story is blissfully unbroken by introductory comments, chapter breaks, or cassette beginning/ending notations. Brothers in Arms, while not best suited as a standalone, will be enjoyed independent of the series structure, but with the entire Vorkosigan constellation increasingly taking full audio shape, it would be a shame for standard sf collections not to have the entire canon available.
