It was the wrong war, in the wrong place, at the wrong time, for the wrong reasons. And Captain Cordelia Naismith of the Betan Expeditionary Force would be forced into a separate peace with her enemy, Lord Vorkosigan. Shards of Honor is the novel in which Lois McMaster Bujold introduced the science-fiction world to Barrayar and Aral Vorkosigan, Beta Colony and Cordelia Naismith. From this beginning the author has created a multigenerational saga spanning time as well as space. Bujold is generally recognized as the current exemplar of the character-based science-fiction adventure story.

I suggested this audiobook to a fellow employee, and I now I want her to finish so that I can listen to it... again. The interesting thing about this series is the books in the series tend to have an emotional finish, but as a reader you don't necessarily know which emotion the story is building to. For me at least, that kind of surprise is unusual in science fiction.

There are many ways to read the saga. The author recommends chronologically, rather than in order of publication (see the Author's editorial review here:*Version*=1&*entries*=0)

This book is actually *not* the earliest in the chronology. The earliest is Falling Free, but that book doesn't contribute to the main story arcs in any other volumes until much later in the series, so it can be read a bit later.

If you want to start at the very beginning of the Vorkosigan Saga series, this is it.
