  2. Summary

    The first introduction of Ivan past infancy is Cordelia's reference to him as "that idiot Ivan" (TWA, chpt 4). Aral repeats this appellation (twice) and Miles does as well, all in the same chapter. Ivan's not actually an idiot, so what earned him this emphatic sobriquet?

    Summary

    The Attolia was meant to be the training ground for a new generation of soldiers; an artificial reality simulator run by an AI designed to learn and adapt and make every challenge harder, push every man to his limit...until it got out of control. The AI grew too smart and the Attolia grew too deadly.

    Now the world's most perilous prison, no inmate has survived more than six months in the Attolia...until Gen. The longest surviving inmate, Gen is determined to get out. Armed with a ragtag group of allies and a tenuous friendship with the AI herself, Gen will escape no matter the cost.

    Summary

    There once was a witch who lived in the Dendarii Mountains, and she had a son. This son of hers had been born with legs that curled into themselves, useless, but instead of cutting his throat as she ought to have done, the witch raised him as tenderly as if he had been a healthy child. . . . His legs remained curled and useless, but his arms grew strong, and his mind grew sharp, and his heart grew dark and wild.

    A traditional Barrayaran folktale, based on the traditional American folksong The Rocky Banks of the Buffalo.
