is a great stand alone story, but those of you, who like me, have watch
the Vorkosigan family since they started will find this book an engaging
romp in true Vor fashion. A Civil Campaign follows the lead of the
Little Admiral's many military campaigns -- need I say more? I give
it a very solid 4, on a scale of 5. I would go higher but LMB keeps
getting better and I need some where to go next time.
Please, LMB, kept typing!
for those who have not had the pleasure of reading the Vorkosigan saga.
LMB has been hiding in sci-fi. For a real treat, I recommend the
family Vorkosigan. A Civil Campaign is a Catherine Coulter style
regency romp set in space on planet Barrayar. I had my sister who
hates sci-fi read this and even she laughed and then demanded to read the
rest of the series. Our hero, Miles has a hard time even getting
to his ladylove between Vor Politics, Mark’s butterbugs and the king’s
wedding plans. He does persevere, however, through an ever-widening
ring of mishaps and intrigue. LMB has a deft touch with humor,
feelings, and the misadventures of love. I highly recommend this
