Komarr could be a garden with a thousand more years?? work, or an uninhabitable wasteland if the terraforming fails. Now, the solar mirror vital to the terraforming of the conquered planet has been shattered by a ship hurtling off course. The Emperor of Barrayar sends his newest imperial auditor, Lord Miles Vorkosigan, to find out why.

The choice is not a popular one on Komarr, where a betrayal a generation before drenched the name of Vorkosigan in blood. Thus, the Komarrans surrounding Miles could be loyal subjects, potential hostages, innocent victims, or rebels ready for revenge.

Lies within lies, treachery within treachery, Miles is caught in a race against time to stop a plot that could exile him from Barrayar forever. His burning hope lies in an unexpected ally, one with wounds as deep and honor as beleaguered as his own.… (mais)

The book has two protagonists with two storylines that intertwine: an official of the space empire investigating damage to a government satellite who gradually uncovers a conspiracy, and a housewife suffering in a bad marriage who eventually grows into her own person. On my first read-through I was focused on the space detective (hero of the previous books) and thought the other plot line was a distraction, but on this read through (years later and with a different perspective) the woman's story grabbed me and seemed much stronger, exploring her damaged relationship and how she changed from being a passive person to a more active one.

Eventually the protagonists develop feelings for each other which I thought was a bit awkward, but was OK. The conspirators being (ostensibly) non-violent and deciding things by voting was also an interesting change from the usual type of unredeemable villains. ( )

April 2021 reread via audiobook. Such fun! The works that make up the omnibus "Miles in Love" are my favorite part of this series.
----------------------
August 2019 reread: I reread this in the omnibus "Miles in Love" rather than listening to the audiobook edition this time. I think it was even better this time around!
---------------------
4.5 stars. What a marvelously fun and exciting entry in the Vorkosigan series! I couldn't stop listening to Grover Gardner's excellent narration but did read along a fair amount. So glad to see Miles happily launched on his new career after losing the Dendarii mercenary fleet in the previous book. And a new love interest too! I hope that this one works out for him. ( )

Ekaterin is great, although Tien feels set up too neatly as a heel -- I don't mean that he's too bad to be true, men really do treat their wives like that, it happens every day, I just mean that I can see so clearly the role he's designed to play in the book's structure, and the character never feels like more than that function.

as with Brothers in Arms the thing that really stops me from loving this is: the villains are literally anti-imperialist freedom fighters(/"terrorists"), lol, lmao. Unconditional solidarity with the people of Komarr against their Barrayaran oppressors, sorry!

I love the entire Vorkosigan series. ( )

Loved it! Miles was at the top of his form here. He's really finding his feet as a Royal Auditor. If you like sci fi and you're not reading this series, you are missing out. ( )

Miles: Fortunately for my credit, from the outside most people can't tell the rapid exploitation of a belatedly recognized opportunity from deep-laid planning. (chapter 21)
Aim high. You may still miss the target but at least you won't shoot your foot off.
Her late husband had called her Kat. A pet name. A little name. As if he hadn't time to pronounce the whole thing, or wish to be bothered...But Ekaterin was light on the teeth and the tip of the tongue, yet elegant and dignified and entirely worth an extra second of, of anyone's time. (chapter 12)
Tien's antilegacy clouded the glimmerings of the new future she ached to claim for herself. She imagined a bird, released from ten years in a cage, told she could fly free - as soon as these lead weights were attached to her feet.
This bird's going to get there if she has to walk every step. (chapter 13)
(Miles, encouraging Nikki to return to school)
"It's not as daunting the second time. I wished later I could have started with the second time. But the only way to get to the second time is to do the first time. Seems paradoxical, that the fastest way to get to easy is through the hard. In this case, I can't spare you an ImpSec agent to check out your school for antimutant activity." (chapter 16)
