Description de l’éditeur

Soon after Miles Vorkosigan arrives on planet Kibou-daini to investigate interplanetary scams by its cryogenics corporation, he is kidnapped and drugged, and barely escapes.  Aided by a boy whose mother was forcibly frozen by agents of the powerful cryogenics industry, Miles must unravel several complex, ruthless schemes.  The latest novel in Bujold's bestselling Vorkosigan saga.

"Fans have been clamoring for Hugo winner Bujold to pen a new Vorkosigan Saga novel since 2002's DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY, and they will not be disappointed by this thoughtful tale."

- Publishers Weekly

"Bujold introduces appealing characters to join familiar ones in exploring the ramifications of a planet-wide culture of postponing death, and her deft and absorbing writing easily corrals the complex plot and softens the blow of a tear-jerking conclusion." Publishers Weekly

''Bujold retains the wit, intelligence, action, and great character development that have made the Miles Vorkosigan series so superior. In KOMARR she proves once again that it is possible for the latest book in a series to be as good as the first.''

- Voya on KOMARR

"Bujold successfully mixes quirky humor with just enough action, a dab of feminist social commentary and her usual superb character development . . . enormously satisfying."

- Publishers Weekly

"One of sf's outstanding talents . . . an outstanding series."

". . . an intelligent, well-crafted and thoroughly satisfying blend of adventure, sociopolitical commentary, scientific experiments, and occasional perils . . . with that extra spicing of romance…"
