Barrayar ç Lois McMaster Barrayar Graepub na koncie użytkownika o. Barrayar chronologically Book #2 in the series the Vorkosigan Saga by Lois McMaster Bujold is Space Opera at its best Describing it in opera terms it is bel canto florid and intricate reuiring supreme agility and pitch control combined with powerful and dramatic storytelling and LMB just got what it takes to write a damn fantastic libretto The first part seems restrained introducing dramatis personae laying the ground for further action LMB is gradually raising the stakes or increasing the volume intensity if you like until a breathtaking climax descends upon us The story starts right where Book #1 Shards of Honour finished The emperor of Barrayar is dying and has appointed Aral Vorkosigan as regent until his grandson Gregor now 5 grows up Aral's wife Cordelia coming from a technologically socially much developed planet finds it hard to fit into to Barrayaran society and struggles to come to figure out its strange and complicated customs Barrayar is rigidly feudal dominated by a military caste and its technology borders on medieval due to an almost complete isolation from other planets Most of the leaders the so called Vors resist change and consider Aral's leadership as revolutionary and endangering their very existence After the emperor's death a period of political and military unrest begins that endangers both Cordelia Aral as well as the child emperor their friends allies and has far reaching conseuences none of them foresaw I continued to like both Cordelia and Aral they are wonderfully strong characters in their different ways The love respect trust and support they give each other is amazing As for Cordelia she gets baffled by her new home planet and its people but won't let herself be manipulated or frightened for a second by political enemies She is one hell of a brave and capable woman view spoilerWhen her unborn baby's life is endangered due to an assassination attempt she never plays the big drama ueen but grabs the doctors by the balls and forces coaxes bribes them into saving the fetus even though she is aware of the strong animosity concerning disabled people referred to by most Barrayarns as mutations her own father in law threatens to abort the baby personally hide spoiler characters Æ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ☆ Lois McMaster Bujold
