Description - A Civil Campaign by Lois McMaster Bujold

One cunning plan too many? It's spring in Vorbarr Sultana, and a young person's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love ...lack of money ...incompatible planetary sexual mores ...District succession scandals ...the Emperor's wedding ...and, of course, love ...Lord Miles Vorkosigan, youngest Imperial Auditor to be appointed by the Emperor since the Time of Isolation, has a problem all his new power can't solve: unrequited love for the beautiful Vor widow Ekaterin Vorsoisson. Ekaterin is violently allergic to marriage as a result of her first exposure. But as Miles learned from his late career in galactic covert ops, if a frontal assault won't do, go to subterfuge. He has a cunning plan ...Lord Mark Vorkosigan has a problem: his love for the sunny Kareen, daughter of Commodore Koudelka, has just become unrequited again. But if all his new money can't solve their dilemma, perhaps a judicious blending of science and entrepreneurial scheming might. He has a cunning plan ...'It's another winner with all kinds of unexpected adventures ...Georgette Heyer has met her match for intrigue and style! A sprightly conducted romance with twists and turns that could only happen in a Vorkosigan-inspired novel...Boy, can she write!' -Anne McCaffrey.

Book Review: Civil Campaign by Lois McMaster Bujold - Reviewed by (23 Jul 2011)

Of all the Vorkosigan Saga, this is my favourite. It's full of twists and subplots and misunderstandings and fun, pretty much a slapstick romantic comedy with drama and intrigue! I know of people who have started reading Bujold with this book and been completely hooked, but there's a lot to be said for following the internal chronology of the series, which would give this book a lot more depth with the background characters.

Miles, despite his new vaunted role as Imperial Auditor, manages to really muck things up in his carefully planned strategy to win the affections of Ekaterin, now living in the capital on Barrayar. Added to this the inevitable galactisism of the planet, manifesting in gender changing, illicit baby growing and the possible effects of gene checkings, to keep Miles hopping, A Civil Campaign is an absolute riot.

Highly recommended, but possibly best read in order.
