Wonderful. It’s not that wonderful that I’m gaga over it, but McKillip is one of the better wielders of fantasy out there. I loved elements like “land-law” and “mind-shout” and I loved Morgon. If I’m not way off the mark, the trilogy is still unresolved, especially the romance of Morgan and Raederle.
Bujold’s third book in the saga, this is the most interesting of them all. Told from the PoV of a mutilated imageless boy who aspires to be a war hero like his father, it spins more stories than it can hope to resolve, but that’s a thing I like. Miles is an interesting hero, and his traits from his mother and his father are remarkably (yet subtly) enhanced in him. I liked this book, the best of the series so far.
Miles returns in the 4th book of the saga, and though it’s not as good as the 3rd, character explorations are in plenty. His love for Elena is particularly interesting, so is the ‘Botharism’ in the whole story. I like this.
Part of the Barrayar saga, but better than the previous book, the story is angled from the PoV of the lady, something I found appealing. There is humor (Victorianish, nevertheless) but it is essentially a very readable and enjoyable (though I say this grudgingly) book.
Too much of a medical-biased scifi for me to really enjoy this, but Bear has a strong and vivid enough writing style for people to be immersed in. And of course, the core idea that the story revolves on is eniviably good. Would like to read the sequel.
