I've read every book in the series, and I got my mother (who's 80) to read them, too. Fun, sweet, very well written. Komarr just pushes Miles' story along even more. READ THEM ALL!
He's always great.
If you haven't read Bujold's Vorkosigan series, and you love science fiction, then get them all!
A better story! Everything was cliche: tired, bored private investigator with interesting ability; tough, beautiful cop; big, bad evil man; even that talking skull was cliche. I couldn't listen to more than a couple of hours of it.
I would be willing to see if he could do better with another book. Maybe this was his first try...
He kept smacking his lips or something...it really bothered me, but maybe it won't bother everybody.
I didn't get far enough into it to find any redeeming qualities.
In the top 5!
I loved all of the characters. Stephen King is an amazing writer, and I love the way he draws all of his characters...even the ones we meet only once or twice.
I don't think I have, but I would love to.
It made me happy and sad -- exactly when King wanted me to be happy or sad or concerned or stressed. He's the master writer and can get those emotions across and into his readers.
I think children would like it...young children. Even teens will get tired of it. I've heard it won some awards. Maybe so; the writing is good. But the story is beyond elementary.
It was way too elementary. I thought I was getting a book for an adult reader.
He has a good voice, and he emotes sympathy.
The story isn't bad. I'd just make sure people understand they're buying a children's book. Maybe it was there and I just missed it.
this was a well-written, very entertaining book! I even loved the battle scenes and enjoyed seeing how the Prince's soldiers changed their tactics to meet the varying tactics of the enemies they fought. Each character was nuanced, and by the end of the series I was cheering for them all. Fun sci-fi, fun military science, fun hero!!
I listened to the three books that precede this in the series. Each is just as good as the next!
Spoiler alert: when Prince Roger and his martial staff enter into the queen's presence at the end of the book.
If you like sci-fi, get it. It's as fun as Buchold's Miles Vorkosigan novels, but much more intense.
Yes. The story was interesting and approched the witch vs. vampire conundrum in a manner that was unexpected. And, importantly to me, the writing was well done.
Anyone interested in fantastic, magical stories will enjoy this!
