DOWNLOAD Barrayar õ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Peror that the Empire would be better if Aral would serve but he knows secrets she does not. I am afraid So simply opens Barrayar with Cordelia words It takes places immediately after the events of Shards of Honor and starts out with low key family strife that sets the tone along with political developments All the time Lois McMaster Bujold s character build up takes center stage All in all it is much than the science fiction tag that describes it My home is not a place it is people The beginning might be slow though not less significant and it is preparing for what is to come Cordelia is adjusting to an overly formal aristocratic and warlike Barrayar However half way through the rhythm changes Then there is a revolution a secret journey vital prisoners bloodshed and death a rescue a raging fire and ultimately a triumphant return Yes there is so much to enjoy in Barrayar It might be very character driven but there is plenty of action to satisfy any reader Above all Bujold s masterful writing keeps the reader s interest fully engagedThe action scenes are well written and believable but it s Bujold s characters that lift the book to another level They are all very human I particularly appreciated the relationship between Cordelia and Aral There is tension as should be expected but their marriage comes out solid in the end They are a team against whatever comes against them And Bujold establishes it particularly well through their dialogues His naked agony terrified her She held him tightly in return I don t know I don t know But somebody has been making these kinds of decisions right along while we went along blissfully unconscious taking the world as given And they were only humans too No better no worse than you Frightening thought She sighed You can t choose between evil and evil in the dark by logic You can only cling to some safety line of principle Dear Captain If I m still sane fifteen years from now I believe it will be your doing For those that enjoyed Shards of Honor like me it is very satisfying to see how well Cordelia adapts to her new home how easily she wins accomplices to her side how furious or even murderous she is with those that hurt her loved ones Above all she is still her own woman When after an assassination attempt Cordelia and Aral s unborn son suffers permanent after effects their relationship is tested but comes out strong as he supports Cordelia s effort to save their son When Miles is born I felt her words to him were meaningful and particularly poignant Welcome to Barrayar son Here you go have a world of wealth and poverty wrenching change and rooted history Have a birth have two Have a name Miles means soldier but don t let the power of suggestion overwhelm you Have a twisted form in a society that loathes and fears the mutations that have been its deepest agony Have a title wealth power and all the hatred and envy they will draw Have your body ripped apart and re arranged Inherit an array of friends and enemies you never made Have a grandfather from hell Endure pain find joy and make your own meaning because the universe certainly isn t going to supply it Always be a moving target Live Live Live The conclusion is not only strong but also lays the groundwork for the rest of the series And leaves us wanting Highly recommended Pilkada Dan Dinamika Politik Lokal up takes center stage All in all it is much than the science fiction tag that describes it My home is not
