    Simply said, this is a Utopia. Basically, the author challenged themselves to write a compelling story where everything that happens is good – and they succeeded.
    The writing is what deserves special mention here. You can tell (well, I am guessing here, but it’s a fairly safe bet) that the author is used to writing scientific texts, and writing them well at that. Like the original books, this story succeeds in making you think through the scientific, social, economic, political, personal…. consequences of everything that happens. It leaves you feeling like you learned something and broadened your perspective. In addition to giving you more of Miles and Ekaterin to love, this story also gives you a chance to enjoy more of some of the side characters with fairly small roles in the original series - Nikki and Aunt Vorthys deserve particular mention here. This is not a romance, but the relationships are pretty much the same as in the original books. If you enjoyed the comedy of manners and the political scheming aspects of A Civil Campaign, you will just love this.
    You MIGHT be able to enjoy this without having read the books it is based on (?), but honestly….just go read those first! More great books for you to read, yay :) I promise you, you won’t be disappointed. I especially recommend reading this after having just finished one of the heavier Vorkosigan books – Mirror Dance maybe, or Memory – and getting all the emotional satisfaction you could ever wish for.
