In this continuation of the Barrayar series, the diminutive, fragile Prince Miles Vorkosigan is sent with his feckless cousin, Ivan, on a mission to a former enemy, the empire of Cetaganda. They immediately encounter a conspiracy to promote interstellar war. As in other Bujold presentations by Reader's Chair, a male reader reads the male parts, and a woman the female. Both carry it off adequately, though the slow-speaking Michael Hanson has a lot more to do because he carries most of the narration. Bujold is one of the most respected sci-fi writers.
