In this entry in Bujold's series of sci-fi adventures read by dual narrators Michael Hanson and Carol Cowan, a group of mercenaries and their leader take a military leave, but trouble follows them. Cowan has a good sense of timing, and her diction is impeccable, but her character voices all sound similar and elderly. With very few female characters and voices to support the need for her narration talents, Hanson could have easily read those parts. He has a whimsical voice that adds spice to the narration. While his pace seems slow in the beginning, it improves with the story's progression. S.B.P. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 01]
