Shards of Honor (Vorkosigan Saga) by Lois McMaster Bujold
Shards of Honor by Lois McMaster Bujold
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Finally reading the Vorkosigan Saga! Worth the wait, lives up to the hype.
Delicious tension between our unlikely and surprised lovers Cordelia and Aral, who make a series of increasingly dramatic choices dictated by their honor that serve to not only keep them apart but work against each other, until the things to which they dedicate their honor begin to change. All the while they are also working desperately and often secretly to keep each other safe through hostile environments, space battles, personal attacks, government intrigues, and the well-meaning misconceptions of other people. The results are both harrowing and wryly and slyly comedic. My one criticism is that because the story is somewhat episodic, it felt like it had multiple endings, but I enjoyed it so much I didn’t really mind.
