It was the wrong war, in the wrong place, at the wrong time, for the wrong reasons. And Captain Cordelia Naismith of the Betan Expeditionary Force would be forced into a separate peace with her enemy, Lord Vorkosigan.
Shards of Honor is the novel in which Lois McMaster Bujold introduced the science-fiction world to Barrayar and Aral Vorkosigan, Beta Colony and Cordelia Naismith. From this beginning the author has created a multi-generational saga spanning time as well as space.
Bujold is generally recognized as the current exemplar of the character-based science-fiction adventure story.

First In Series: Just Great!
Don't read if you don't want to get hooked on the series. I love stories with intelligent characters, actions & dialogue that aren't just about murder or horror. This one surprised me- I ran across it when searching for something else on my library's website, downloaded it for the heck of it, and started listening while doing housework...I ended up buying the series with each paycheck.
I downloaded this book. It comes in three tracks. The third track is only twenty minutes of the audiobook, followed by seven hours of empty silence.
