Miles Vorkosigan graduates from the Barrayaran Military Academy with high expectations of ship command, but is disappointed with an assignment as meteorologist to Lazkowski Base, an arctic training camp. His tenure in the windy, snow-covered north is cut short when Miles narrowly averts a massacre between the trigger-happy base commander and mutinous recruits. After a brief stay under 'house arrest', Miles is re-assigned to investigate a suspicious military build-up near a wormhole nexus. Reviving his undercover persona as mercenary Admiral Miles Naismith, his routine information-gathering duty expands to a rescue mission when the Emperor of Barrayar disappears during a political conference on a nearby space station. Miles must use his considerable negotiating skills to avoid a showdown between competing powers for control of the wormhole, find the Emperor ... and watch his back for the arctic base commander seeking bloody vengeance.… (mehr)

The Miles Vorkosigan series is addictive, really fun science fiction, in which Miles Vorkosigan overcomes his brittle bones and stunted growth, legacy of a prenatal attack on his parents, with his hyperactive genius for getting into and out of trouble, to command a mercenary fleet, run diplomatic missions, and solve problems for the Emperor. In The Vor Game we see Miles beginning (and almost ending) his Barrayaran military career—“When a normal ensign looked at his commander, he ought to see a god-like being, not a, a … future subordinate”—while trying to live up to his father’s reputation and protect his Emperor and foster brother.

I didn't much like the first book that I read in this series, but after this one I'm starting to see the potential. The military bits are well done and the setting is starting to take more solid shape. My problem is that the characters are all a bit flat in their dialogue and interactions. Even the protagonist isn't particularly dynamic or interesting in any scene regardless of whether the events taking place in the scene should be exciting. That said, I think I'll still pick up more of the author's other books eventually. ( )

Yep, a fabulous read. ( )

The Vor Game tells the story of Miles Vorkosigan's entry into the Barrayaran military. He begins as a weather officer in an obscure training camp, where he quickly pisses off his (admittedly terrible) commanding officer and gets transferred to a post in Imperial Security. It then spirals out from there, as his new commanding officer abandons him on some secret mission, he accidentally runs into his own Emperor who has childishly run away, he reconnects with his mercenary band from a previous story, and eventually works to stop an interstellar war. The plot does seem to jerk you around a bit, but I really enjoyed the politics in the last part of the book (even if the main villain seemed to be a bit of a caricature). This was a solid entry in the series. ( )

Miles Vorkosigan is a young man born of a predominant admiral and his remarkable wife. Because of exposure in utero to some chemicals used during warfare, Miles has brittle bones and very short stature which has reduced expectations of others but not his parents. His intelligence, creative thinking and versatility (ability to think outside the box) get him both in and out of some rather extreme situations. ( )

Elena's eye lit with a skewed enthusiasm. "Dear God, Miles. Metzov--Oser--Ungari--all in a row--you sure are hard on your commanding officers. What are you going to do when the time comes to let them all out?"
"I can't help it, sir, if people give me the wrong orders."
. . . She looked positively seductive. Miles eased cautiously back in the cushions and tried to look seduceable. . . .
