In Shards of Honor Cordelia Naismith is the captain of a survey ship from the peaceable, democratic Beta Colony, where the climate is harsh and desert-like, but she soon meets Aral Vorkosigan of the war-like Barrayar when she becomes his prisoner. But I'm really writing about the entire, superb Vorkosigan series. These novels are much more about the characters and how they handle life than about science fiction.

Cordelia's Honor" contains two earlier published books, "Shards of Honor," and "Barrayar," which are the second and third stories in Lois McMaster Bujold's Vorkosigan Saga. Together, they tell the story of Cordelia Naismith, a survey officer from civilized, polite Beta. In "Shards of Honor," her crew was killed, and she was taken prisoner by Aral Vorkosigan, "The Butcher of Komarr.

I first read Barrayar (the second of the two novels in the this volume), when it was serialized in Analog Science Fiction/Science Fact in the 1980's. I have now owned everything in the VorKosigan saga for some time... I have multiple copies of many (inherited from my Father). I owned this in paperback (and still have Cordelia's Honor in paperback) but I must have lent this to someone and it was not returned, so I did not have Barrayar. So when I went looking to buy it it again, I was stunned to find that used Hardbacks in this series are basically collectors items. (they appear to be out of print). I started buying her hardbound volumes as they were released maybe a decade ago. I'm glad to have this again, and in hardback. Reread it several weeks ago. Bujold is Soooooo good!

One of the things I love best about this multi-planet, clashing cultures, two books in one volume space opera is that its main character is a mature, take-it-as-it-comes thirty-something not an excitable, inexperienced sixteen. In Shards of Honor Cordelia Naismith is the captain of a survey ship from the peaceable, democratic Beta Colony, where the climate is harsh and desert-like, but she soon meets Aral Vorkosigan of the war-like Barrayar when she becomes his prisoner. Sort of. Vorkosigan is supposed to be the leader of the Barrayaran military mission, but there’s been a mutiny so he and Cordelia are partners as much as they are adversaries, hiking towards a supply base with a badly injured crew member Cordelia refuses to leave behind. The second book, Barrayar, continues the story of Cordelia and Aral and no aspect of storytelling--character evolution, world building, sci fi coolness, or high action plot--is scrimped on in either book. It's a totally captivating set of novels.

This book is one of my favorites by one of my favorite authors. It combines the two pre-Miles books and builds the Barrayaran world. If you like the later Vorkosigan books, this one is a must read if you haven't read it. I have reread this edition enough times to get another copy, having worn out the first.

I'm writing this review here because Cordelia's Honor is the beginning. But I'm really writing about the entire, superb Vorkosigan series.

These novels are much more about the characters and how they handle life than about science fiction. The characters are among the most believable I've encountered in any literature. Note that the characters are also exceptional people - way above the norm in intelligence and character. Which, I think, makes their "realness" even more impressive.

I rarely read a book twice. I've read this series twice in the last 6 years and I'm about to start again.

I read one review that said of Bujold and this series: "She makes me laugh, she makes me cry". I agree totally; get out the hanky at times, burst out laughing at times, also bite nails at times. But I would add to that something unique in my reading of fiction: I finish them wanting to be a better person. Her main characters have so much integrity they are inspirational. Further, when one of the characters says something that is supposed to be wise, it is. E.g., Cordelia says of her unafraid young companion in a very dangerous situation: "He was too young to realize there is death after life".

One specifc on this particular book: If the climatic scene in Barrayar (second part of Cordelia's Honor) doesn't raise the hairs on the back of your neck, call 911 before it's too late.

Backrgound: I read widely, fiction, non-fiction. I've worked through many classics, e.g.,enjoyed "Portrait of an Artist" by James Joyce before I knew his reputation. I've read and loved Sci-Fi since high school (a long time ago).

Shards of Honor: This book tells about how two really capable people met, fell in love, "fought" on oposite sides of a war, and handled the end of the war. As is obvious from the title, honor and doing one's duty is high in the theme of the book. But it also includes a lot of humor, pathos, struggle, etc. You will begin to really like the characters in these stories.
Barrayar: The couple, now married and pregnant, have assumed the job of being regents for the planet's child emperor. The child's emperor's vulnerability tempts a rebellion which must be overcome.
Bujold has created fictional characters I care about. If only they were real I would dearly love to move in with them and be part of their family. In spite of their faults, or more often because of them, their accomplishments approach super-human -- as they fall on their faces.
Though most all of the story in both books included in this volume is really engaging, let me summarize with this: near the end of Barrayar, stoic me both leaked actual tears then laughed out loud while reading a single page.
These, followed by "Warrior's Apprentice," and the rest of Bujold's books are now my 1st choice to recommend to anyone. Shards of Honor and Barrayar are chronologically 1st and 2nd in the lives of the characters. Feel free to read Warrior's Apprentice first if you choose.

I am a sci-fi nut, whenever I can manage to read or see any.

This author surprised me - not only do I get imaginative science fiction but also a romance and even commentary on government and parenting.

All of the books in this series are fantastic, and I have read them all (excepting Captain Vorpatril's Alliance) which I have not had time to get.

But it is the Cordelia (aka Lady/Countess/Vicereine Vorkosigan) character and her great husband Aral that stand out to me.

This is well-written and will captivate you, I think. Aral and Cordelia seem like people I know, and you just know that Miles will be special due to their pairing.
