Captain Cordelia Naismith of the Betan Expeditionary Force was on a routine mission to study the life forms on an uninhabited, neutral planet. Little did she know that the enemy Barrayarans had chosen this place as their secret base for an as-yet undeclared war. Separated from her team, Cordelia is captured by Lord Aral Vorkosigan, the leader in charge of the Barrayaran mission. Aral himself is caught in a web of political intrigue that has led to a recent attempt on his life. As the two strangers struggle together across the unfriendly terrain of the foreign planet toward Aral's ship, they discover that their greatest danger may be the romance inconveniently developing between them, on the brink of a war that will divide their peoples more strongly than ever.

Recognized as the current exemplar of character-based science fiction, Bujold debuts her beloved Vorkosigan saga with this tale about the future parents of Miles Vorkosigan.

this was a very tepid book, so it is really a 2.5, which is kind of disappointing because I love space opera, and I like Lois McMaster Bujold's other works. The romance doesn't feel very fully developed, and any action/ political intrigue happens off-screen to be explained to the main character Cordelia. Coredelia also experiences culture shock from the Barrayan culture because they are an extremely militaristic and patriarchal culture, and not as technologically advanced. Most of the time she is the only woman in a sea of men, and the men are surprised that she is a captain. I don't think many of the issues presented are well analyzed, or even well resolved in this book, which is probably why it is published as part of an omnibus with the second book, because it just kind of ends in an unsatisfactory way.
The best scene is when Cordelia actually goes home. That is the first time I felt emotionally invested in the character. She spends a large portion of the book thinking her side is better, only to be proven wrong when she is used as a political pawn and drugged by her own military. They condemn her because she fell in love with Vorkosigan, and that was the first time I felt like the character might actually be in love with him. ( )

Has some really good things to say about the consequences of war and what it means to take responsibility for them.
I wasn't especially moved by the violence or the romance, but I'm glad I read it. ( )

Lovely. Good characters that are competent (both male and female). Good storyline. It got a bit chaotic towards the end, but still highly enjoyable. ( )

This was recommended as the best book to start with in the Vorkosigan Saga, which Noah Smith writes is "the best sci fi series ever". This follows Cordelia Naismith, a planetary surveyor from the planet Beta, caught up in a military action, as the point of view character. She meets Arad Vorkosigan, a Barrayaran military leader who has been betrayed by the political officer on his ship. They have to journey over multiple days to reach a cache of supplies, during which they fall in love though they have to part as Vorkosigan deals with a complex political plot on his ship and Cordelia escapes back to her home planet.

Months later, the war has fully broken out, and Naismith (now drafted into the military) is captured by the Barrayarans once more, caught in the middle of more political machinations in the midst of the war which I won't spoil here.

The book focuses on the theme of honor, as Vorkosigan plots the honorable course and attempts to keep his countrymen from raping and butchering prisoners. But we learn that acting honorably in a complex and dysfunctional political system can be impossible at times.

I enjoyed the book, and plan to read through this whole series. I wouldn't agree with Smith that it's the best ever yet, but the first book reveals a series that is definitely worth sticking with. ( )
  DanTarlin | Jan 1, 2024 |
Felt short and relatively straightforward plot-wise (some twists but easy to predict, not much tension build-up). I also didn't really feel like I got to know the characters or their motivations very well, and didn't get invested in their outcomes.

But, having accidentally already read two others later in this series, it filled in some missing backstory. Not a ton of world building in this one, but sets the stage for the later ones to come in and fill in details. ( )
