Publisher's Summary

Komarr could be a garden with 1,000 more years' work, or an uninhabitable wasteland if the terraforming fails. Now, the solar mirror vital to the terraforming of the conquered planet has been shattered by a ship hurtling off course. The emperor of Barrayar sends his newest imperial auditor, Lord Miles Vorkosigan, to find out why.

The choice is not a popular one on Komarr, where a betrayal a generation before drenched the name of Vorkosigan in blood. Thus, the Komarrans surrounding Miles could be loyal subjects, potential hostages, innocent victims, or rebels ready for revenge.

Lies within lies, treachery within treachery - Miles is caught in a race against time to stop a plot that could exile him from Barrayar forever. His burning hope lies in an unexpected ally, one with wounds as deep and honor as beleaguered as his own.

Hi-fi sci-fi: listen to more in the Vorkosigan saga.

What the Critics Say

"Bujold retains the wit, intelligence, action, and great character development that have made the Miles Vorkosigan series so superior. In Komarr she proves once again that it is possible for the latest book in a series to be as good as the first." (Voya)
"As usual, Bujold tells a fast-moving story that combines just the right amount of action and wit as Miles continues to mature in a manner unusually complex for a series protagonist....[Bujold's] work remains among the most enjoyable and rewarding in contemporary SF." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Unlucky in love"

    Another good read by LMB. I've been happy with every one of her Vorkosigan novels so far (well, except for the first one, the Vor Game, which was probably the weakest). Her characters are believable, and have depth of character. This chapter of the Vorkosigan saga finally takes Miles closer to his personal fulfillment, and I wish him the best of luck in his future adventures (I have only two more left to read!).

    "Komarr -review"

    I really enjoyed this audiobook. I listened to it all a second time , in order to appreciats more some of the suble interplay between characters and how they were involved in the plot.
    Miles Vorkosican becomes more and more loveable as a hero as his nature and intelligence unfold. He is highly intelligent, strong, wise and insightful and has a heart much larger than himself.He as a great sense of humour too!
    I felt that there was a weakness ot the story in the nature of the villans. I won't give anything away but they did not always behave as desparate angry mutineers might havedone.More and more the love story seems to be emerging as the main thread towards the end, with the other characters falling into lesser roles.
    I enjoyed the sci fi setting and the imaginative methods of travel and recolonisation and the way in which the politics and issues of the time and place fitted in to this.

    "fairly boring"

    The book was well written, but the story lagged. I will not be downloading the remaining sequels.
