His values are sound, his friendships true, and his escapades alternatively fascinating, worrisome, and hilarious. The same with the next story – he is to get one prisoner of war out of a jail, but decides he is breaking out all the prisoners instead. I can’t believe how well and how completely Bujold created a world within the dome.

Chronologically the first novel goes between books 4 and 5 and the second and third between 7 and 8. Oct 10, Justine rated it really liked it Shelves: Overall 4 star rating.

The first story is a whodunit, that I reviewed separately. Miles is his usual self, bullshitting his way to a position of power, and he meets several people who see straight through him near immediately, which I found to be very satisfying, especially since lkis of them saw through him in a different way. Miles will always choose those things, and it’s a source of frustration with me because of course it’s only going to end badly, of course he’s only going to break himself in the trying.


Do the Cetagandans ever get nailed for their mendacity and lose their “good prison” status? No sex, the murder is before the story, and minimal violence.

My adult self looks at it and thinks, with a grin, “Holy crap, I can’t believe Bujold wrote underage teenage werewolf sex and made it sweet and touching. For full reviews, see links below 1.

In it, Miles wakes to find himself in Hell, no wait, a domed Cetagandan prison camp that might as well be. Originally charged with killing what Dr. Trivia About Borders of Infini I chuckle at his fascination with tall, strong-willed redheads. This might be my fa I enjoyed all three of the novellas in the collection a lot. Philosophy, theology, and human psychology overlap with technology and I would be inclined to take hardened criminals over generically-bred superhumans, but this is just me.


Fast paced, engaging, and so, so sad. Miles is thrown into a prison dome by the Cetagandans to join other prisoners of war who have sunk into despair and some into depravity in sparse, barely legal conditions.

Barrayarans are descendants of Russian, English, French, and Greek colonists. They loomed down out of the infinlty scarlet-tinged clouds like monstrous beetles, carapaced and winged, feet extending even as bujole watched. I gave the collection 2 stars because I prefer Miles in his cocky, adventurous mode, not the more somber tones of these stories.
