This is an example of a series that, unlike many, keeps getting better with each book. I've been a long-time fan of Bujold, and I admire her ability to build entirely original (and different) worlds.
She has widened the world of these novels significantly in the 3rd volume, and introduced some delightful new characters. This was a fast-paced, intriguing story that I thoroughly enjoyed.
Although intelligent and well-written, the plot unfolds far too slowly. There are entire chapters of chit-chat where nothing of consequence happens.
I also found the obviously fake British accent of the narrator extremely distracting and irritating.
