    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

    This is the first of the Vorkosigan series with Miles as the main character. I love the whole series and I have read all of them to date. Miles does have a nack for stumbling into bad situations and coming out smelling like a rose by the skin of his teath. I have listend to other audio presentations of this and "Vor Game" and I think these are better and I hope they are planing on doing the whole series including the 2 non-Vorkosigan books, "Falling Free" and "Ethan of Athos". I hope that Blackstone does "Shards of Honor" and "Baryarr" so people will know how Miles came to be. I noticed that Blackstone now has the next book after "Vor Game", "Cetaganda" and I hope that Audible gets it soon.
