I love the Vorkosigan universe and this is a great story. It stands completely on it's own and fills in a piece of history of the greater universe. The characters are interesting as is the story itself. The story does bring up some moral questions about slavery and personhood. Grover Gardner does a great job narrating as always. I always lean towards listening to a book if he's the narrator.
This book was a lot of fun and the narrator is absolutely fabulous. Her very distinctive voices for the many different characters is a joy to hear. The story was pretty good, though I kept listening wondering when the mystery was going to begin. It actually doesn't start until about halfway through the book. I really enjoyed the characters and the look at an interesting period of history. I'm going to listen to the next books in the series.
