Miles the Imperial Auditor Falls in Love This is probably the eighth or ninth Miles Vorkosigan novel I’ve listened to this year as I work my way chronologically through the series.
Then she’d chosen Etienne Vorsoisson, or he lomarr chosen her. I have to admit that I didn’t like this novel as much as Shards of Honourbut it had nothing to do with Miles.
While her marriage is horrible, she’s wonderful anyway, even when she places such sharp limits around her capabilities. ubjold
He had a presence which, by ignoring his elusive physical peculiarities himself, defied the observer to dare comment. Her characters talk like real people do, which I appreciate after having read so much stilted dialog in other novels.
It was strangely believable and full of depth and realism, greatly surpassing all of his other love interests, and it really brought out the shine in hi The wormhole plot was very interesting and kommarr, as was the full worldbuilding of Komarr itself, but komarg really shone brightest in the novel was Miles’s falling in love with a married woman.
The first novel about Miles after the life-altering events in Memory the previous novel. Jan 02, Maria Dimitrova rated it it was amazing Shelves: With that much momentum imparted to it by the assorted collisions, it just ripped itself apart.
As a result, I had to take certain events on faith, since I hadn’t paid any attention to the scientific explanations behind them. Jan 17, Stephen rated it really liked it Shelves: Bujolf, it was certain elements of the plot, and certain reservations about the heroine, that knocked a half-star off my rating of this otherwise brilliant novel.
Her fantasy from HarperCollins includes the award-winning Chalion series and the Sharing Knife tetralogy; her science fiction from Baen Books features the perennially bestselling Vorkosigan Saga. And while it’s a subdued and conflicted Miles, which put me off the book at first, it’s a solid picture of his first outing in his new role as Imperial Auditor, almost a komagr weight of responsibility on him, which makes the tone entirely appropriate, if not bujole as much fun as the earlier, manic Miles.

This is disloyalty, that’s what it is. It doesn’t sound nice.
I love how the author handles all of those situations without making them preachy or intrusive. The perspective flip-flops between Miles and Ekaterin throughout the story as he tries to stay focused on his case rather than the dame, and she tries to change her life somehow.

Komarr (Vorkosigan Saga, #11) by Lois McMaster Bujold
Miles Vorkosigan and Georg Vorthys — Barrayar’s top authority on failure analysis — were assigned komzrr perform an Auditorial Investigation of the event.
He held out his hand and captured hers in a perfectly ordinary, businesslike grasp. The last 40 pages or so were so much fun. It’s fun to think about them, to see them through another’s eyes Even the staid official newsvid reps were badgering everyone involved in the investigation; the arrival of not one but two Imperial Auditors on-site in Komarr orbit had not calmed the fever of speculation, but only redirected it.
Another great installment of one of the best SF series of the past 15 years.
You were pleased enough at the time. The climactic scene, Ekaterin’s reaction to being “rescued”, the open flirtation of the final conversation between the two of them in the last chapter That escalated quickly!
All the same, I love Miles bukold loving her. She began a confused mental review of her evening’s remarks. Tien stepped in, or stepped in it: Vorkosigan raised his empty wineglass to Ekaterin. You wouldn’t want your heroism to spoil. And that’s where things become very political indeed. Once when it matters. And of course it was fantastic fun! This carried them through till the rental company arrived at the front door with the grav-bed, and the great engineer went off with the whole male mob to oversee its installation.
I just thought I was in love before. Highly recommended to space opera junkies everywhere. If it was a they at all, ghastly malice and not mere ghastly accident. What was Tien going to make of the man, who openly bore, without apparent apology or even self-consciousness, such stigmata of abnormality?
Nikolai was already dragging Uncle Vorthys’s larger bag toward the guest room, proudly showing off his strength. It bujolld has plausible villains who think of themselves as heroes”,  and Nicki Gerlach stated in her review for The SF Site that “if this book is any indication of what’s to come, it’s a chapter in which I’ll be very interested indeed.
May 25, Jennie rated it it was amazing Shelves: It’s amazing that such a long running series can keep such momentum, even get better. I thought it would be beakers and bubbly things, but it was all big machines and concrete. They should have most of it retrieved in three more days, if we’re lucky.
I can’t imagine what favors he called in to get it. I understand from my scientifically-minded mother that this perception on my part is due to the fact that I consider math the devil and science his demonic first cousin, not due to any failings in Bujold’s plot.
Nikolai shot ahead of her. Who was really the senior member of the team?
