REVIEW - Barrayer
So he's all busy with politics and stuff, and Cordelia is busy being pregnant. They also spend a lot of time trying not to get killed, which is always fun. The book ends with the birth of Miles. No, that's not really a spoiler, since the other books in the series are all about Miles. You kinda figure he gets born at some point.
This book started off pretty slow. I had a hard time being motivated to pick it up. But then it got really good and actiony, and I had a hard time putting it down. I'm excited to read the rest of the series, but I want more Cordelia, I'm not sure how much I care about Miles right now. I have a feeling Cordelia and Aral pretty much disappear after this, and may never be heard from again. Bummer.
This is the kind of science fiction I like, where the character development is really there, and it's not so technical and all about the science. I would rate this book 4/5, and would definitely recommend it if you like science fiction.
