    5 A buddy read with Evgeny and Maria Because we love our Miles Does this story truly deserve 5 stars Most probably not, if you are being objective However, something in this very short, very Miles Vorkosigan story tugged on my heartstrings and my emotions say it deserves all the stars in the sky Once again the author brings our attention to the possible abuse of genetics and having financial intetests controlling scientific research, who have no moral compass and are interested only in the bottom line It also questions when does an employee stop being covered by the company made me do it line and starts carrying personal responsibility for their actions But despite the very serious as always ethical dilemmas, the author also gave us a very Miles story, which included the genetically engineered hermaphrodite mercenary Captain, a beautiful violinist quaddy, and a wolf girl experiment, who brought the best in our Admiral Naismith Also, this is the first and very unexpected awkward night we get to read about in this series up to date, and it was nothing I could have anticipated It was not pretty, but darn it, it was sweet and weird and I was absolutely in awe of the way the author dealt with it I think up to this story I liked the series and truly enjoyed them, but I feel like this short is what made my heart and soul commit fully and I know that objectivity would be a thing of the past from now on I think I just crossed from an enthusiastic reader field to fan girl zone Another one bites the dust and loves every second of it Now I wish you all Happy Reading and many wonderful books to come

    What a great adventure, all the better for it getting to the point and still having depth of characters I m finding that Bujold is one author who can actually pull off a satisfying novella.

    Buddy read with Choko and Evgeny.We re continuing our tour of the Nexus with Miles and his mercenaries This time around we re visiting one of the most disturbing and unpleasant planets out there Jackson s Whole It s yet another extreme, a place where there are no rules and wealth is god Everything and anything goes as long as you can pay Imagine being ruled by the mob Not by behind the scenes maneuvering They are the government and they re not even pretending to be something other than a crime syndicate It s a terrifying place, especially if you re not one of the powerful but have some valuable quality that those powerful people covet Because if you are you re most likely to find yourself enslaved and violated in all imaginable ways, including having your DNA harvested so they can make of you to sell Miles is on an yet another mission for the Barrayaran s ImpSec cleverly disguised as something else And just as always things go horribly wrong when his morals clash with the reality of his mission objective Miles charm and quick wits get him out of that mess once again but this time another of his essential qualities is what truly makes a difference and wins the day his humanity Because of his deformities Miles have had people look at him as if he isn t human all his life He can understand the pain it causes and the lasting psychological trauma it inflicts It s that understanding that helps him see beyond the shell and into what makes a being a person And because he sees a person instead of a monster, an experiment, a slave or whatever the other characters see in Taura that he manages to pull of yet another miracle And along the way teaches us and all those around him a very important lesson.

    A little fun novella We get to see the typical Miles getting himself in trouble and having weakness for women, even those with sharp teeth.

    3.75 stars for this shorter segment of The Vorkosigan Saga. It is also published in a collection called Borders of Infinity Labyrinth is oddly like a pnr romance with a werewolf, set on another world It s unlike the other books in the series The smexy parts are a little unsettling.Here we have Lord Miles Vorkosigan under his alias as Admiral Naismith of the Dendrarii Mercenary Fleet He s on a covert mission for the Barrayar Imperial Security Imp Sec Miles I m becoming fixated on Miles Vorkosigan, a brilliant mind in a brittle body He s nothing to look at, standing not five feet tall in his boots, with a slightly skewed spine and bones that easily break Only about 21 years old, his face already bears the stigmata of pain I love to see him outsmart and out bluff the big baddies I chuckle at his fascination with tall, strong willed redheads He s a softy with a temper, an impulsive tyrant with boundless energy and ideas His values are sound, his friendships true, and his escapades alternatively fascinating, worrisome, and hilarious.As a Barrayaran Vor the military warrior caste , Admiral of the Dendarii Mercenaries, and a secret agent working for Simon at ImpSec Barrayaran Imperial Security , Miles is constantly in danger In nearly every book, he gets busted up, due to his brittle bones In this book, Miles goes to a planet called Jackson s Whole Like Jackson Hole in Wyoming, this Whole has a valley ringed with snow capped mountains However, this Whole is a Pit depraved, corrupt a place where anything is for sale, from guns to gonads At House Ryoval, the motto is Dreams Made Flesh and the purveyor is the vile Baron Ryoval.The story opens when Admiral Naismith Miles approaches the planet with his pilot, Captain Bel Thorne of the Dendrarii Mercenary Fleet see The Warrior s Apprentice for Thorne s story.Pretending to be buying guns from the aged Baron Fell, his mission is to meet up with Dr Canaba alias Weddell Vaughn and zoom him safely to planet Barrayar, where the brilliant geneticist will conduct research As Weddell Vaughn, he plays a role later, in Memory But Dr Canaba Vaughn won t go with Miles unless Miles kills the monster he engineered A failed super soldier experiment With human and wolf genes, the monster is dubbed Number Nine or just Nine.So off he goes to kill this monstrous wolf man 9 Not knowing that Nine isa she Wanna know Read on view spoiler Only 16 More human than expected, yet fanged, clawed, incredibly strong Able to speak in full sentences Able to cry real tears Lonely Cold Hungry Thirsty Frightened A she wolf with beautiful golden eyes Standing 8 tall to Miles 5 in boots.It was funny how she picked him up, lifting him here and there And I loved the friendship that developed Miles, who has been called a mutant all his life, can easily accept this mutant First he fearfully touches her Then he s holding her hand, embracing her, giving her a name Taura hide spoiler

    Again, I want to quibble certain plots, but how can I when MONSTER GIRLS.

    2.5 stars I did enjoy the familiar tropes, but otherwise this was negligible and only slightly amusing, and the fact that it is Miles who names Nine instead of her finding a name for herself was hardly worth it just for the sake of the literary allusion.At least Bel got to do some stuff, I guess.
