The Warrior's Apprentice


Loved this book! It's pretty clear that Bujold had come into her own with her writing as this book is so much better than the earlier ones.

Miles is now 17 and, unable to get into the Military Academy, goes to Beta Colony to visit his grandmother while he tries to figure out what he will do next. He comes across a situation where a desperate pilot is trying to protect his ship that is to be scrapped. Before long, he leads a mercenary group.

Lots of humor in this as well as fast paced plot and lots of interesting strategy.
