Many readers have indicated that the first two books aren't as strong as the stories with Miles in them. This really excites me because I really did enjoy these first two books, that I can't even imagine how happy I'll be in my upcoming reads.
Cordelia and Aral are just such a perfect team. They click and you really do believe that they want positive change. I love Cordelia's attitude and her take action persona. She is tender and practical and such a great heroine.
This book was action packed without hardly any breathing room for the poor reader, but I'll take it :D
This series is my first experience with Bujold (I must admit that the cover art turned me off for a long time) and I'm really enjoying it so far and I'm looking forward to the next book!
