Publisher Description

After failing entry to the Barrayaran Military Academy, Miles Vorkosigan chances on an obsolete jumpship with a rebellious pilot and arranges to take over the ship. Events escalate wildly from there, and soon Miles reinvents himself as Admiral Naismith of the Dendarii Free Mercenary Fleet. “The pace is breathless, the characterizations thoughtful and emotionally powerful… Highly recommended,” writes Booklist.

 

"Bujold's first book SHARDS OF HONOR was called 'possibly the best first novel of the year' by the Chicago Sun Times. THE WARRIOR'S APPRENTICE is even better." 

 - Fantasy Review

 

"The action is fast, furious and delicious... Best of all, Bujold achieves a fine balance of comedy with intelligence, heroics with loss, so THE WARRIOR'S APPRENTICE goes far beyond simple entertainment."

- Locus Magazine


"The pace is breathless, the characterization thoughtful and emotionally powerful, and the author's narrative technique and command of language compelling. Highly recommended."

- Booklist
