Oliver Jole, admiral, Sergyar Fleet, finds himself caught up in her web of plans in ways he'd never imagined, bringing him to an unexpected crossroads in his life.Meanwhile, Miles Vorkosigan, one of Emperor Gregor's key investigators, this time dispatches himself on a mission of inquiry, into a mystery he never anticipated-his own mother.Plans, wills, and expectations collide in this sparkling science fiction social comedy, as the impact of galactic technology on the range of the possible changes all the old rules, and Miles learns that not only is the future not what he expects, neither is the past.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Grover Gardner's faintly ironic intonations, just short of outright humor, capture the tone of Bujold's writing style. One can almost see his lips twitching. Bujold's space opera series involves fully formed characters in highly political and dangerous situations. They're the type who often smile before a fight. Gardner accomplishes character differentiation without significantly altering his vocal patterns as two of the series' more prominent players engage in a series of trysts and fall in love. That's about it. But this is not a stand-alone adventure. Read the first 16 books first, and the character and planetary details will then become clear. D.R.W. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
