    Dying is easy. Coming back to life is hard. Miles Vorkosigan should know - having done both once already. Thanks to his quick-thinking staff and the artistry of a medical specialist, Miles' first death wasn't his last. But it does take some recovery, a fact he has been reluctant to admit. When he makes the mistake of returning too soon to duty, he finds himself summoned to face the security chief, Simon Illyan. But Miles' worst nightmares about Illyan are nothing compared to Illyan's own nightmares.

    Overall

    This book is a bit of a departure from the other Miles Vorkosigan books--not the one to start with if you have not read any of the others--but in many ways my favorite. It deals with themes of change, the difficulties of letting go of the past (especially when it has been glorious and successful) and moving on. Bujold's characterization is as always spot on and compelling. The narrator's relatively dry delivery suits Miles.

    Miles Vorkosigan makes his debut in this frenetic coming-of-age tale. At age 17, Miles is allowed to take the entrance exams to the elite military academy; he passes the written but manages, through miscalculation in a moment of anger, to break both his legs on the obstacle course, washing out before he begins. His aged grandfather dies in his sleep shortly after, for which Miles blames himself.

    Overall

    I can't believe I haven't read/listened to the Miles Vorkosigan books earlier. The characterization is fabulous, the story fascinating. I have already listened to another book and read nearly all of the others. Wonderful!
