What is it about?

Cordelia Naismith is an officer in the Betan Expeditionary Force, sent to explore a planet. Unbeknownst to them, the planet had already been discovered and claimed by Barrayar. When Cordelia is captured by a Barrayaran officer, she is forced to realize that not all Barrayarans are as evil as the stories from her childhood.

I apologize for any misspellings of the worlds and names. I listened to the audiobook so find the writing of it strange.

Is it good?

I enjoyed this audiobook. For a sci-fi book, it is not too long. It has action, aliens, romance and politics. There’s a big war going on and the star-crossed lovers must fight for opposing sides.

This is the first book in the Vorkosigan Saga. If there was a cliffhanger, I must have missed it. I plan on continuing the series because the characters are likeable and believable, and the story was interesting and moved along quickly.

      1. Oh, by the way. Before I forget. I remembered our discussion the other day about how your brother only reads video game books. There’s this genre going around called LitRPG. He should check it out. He would feel at home in this LitRPG group, haha. I’m surprised I just now found it.
