Barrayaran Imperial Auditor Miles Vorkosigan can hardly disapprove—he’s been cheating death his whole life, on the theory that turnabout is fair play. But when a Kibou-daini cryocorp—an immortal company whose job it is to shepherd its all-too-mortal frozen patrons into an unknown future—attempts to expand its franchise into the Barrayaran Empire, Emperor Gregor dispatches his top troubleshooter, Miles, to check it out

    Overall

    Lois is in top form returning to Miles' adventures. The theme of yearning for immortality underlies both the main story and Miles personal concerns.And Lois manages some very touching moments using her unflinching ability to let small tragedies happen around Miles. She also continues one of the strengths of the Vorkosigan series-- an exploration of the maturation of an individual. Seeing Miles facing the concerns of a family man in early middle is an engaging element of the story. Well done! Finally, the Grover Gardner is one of Blackstone's best readers, which made listening a pleasure.
