And she wasn't really expecting to fall in love with a 40-plus barbarian known to cosmopolitan galactics as the Butcher of Komarr. Will Mother ever understand? And can such an odd beast as love survive an interplanetary war? --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
''[Bujold] gives [her] characters enough emotional depth, and enough sense, to raise their story beyond cliché.'' --Locus

This is Bujold's first book and is not quite up to the ones that follow--in my opinion, there are very few books that are up to the ones that follow. Read morePublished 3 months ago by S. L. Hill
The whole Vorkosigan saga is truly one of the great scifi stories of all time. Shards of Honor is a very good which is, ironically, probably the weakest of the bunch. Read morePublished 3 months ago by David M. Norris
