The Warrior's Apprentice


Smitten. That is the best word to describe my feelings towards Lois McMaster Bujold's first book in her series "The Vorkosigan Saga." I have a little bit of a crush on her main character, Miles Naismith Vorkosigan.

I'm calling this one the first book in the series, but I'm not sure if it is or not. According to what I consider to one of the ultimate sources of genre fiction on the web,, This is the first book in the "Miles Vorkosigan series". And that works for me.

Miles is one of the best characters I have read in a long time, and this book balances just the right amount of rip-roaring space adventuring, and serious political strife. Add in a splash of dark humor and a smidge of romance and Ms. McMaster Bujold has produced a seriously good series.
