Books by Lois McMaster Bujold


CryoBurn (2010)

Just finished a second reading. My Mom's been rereading the whole series. It's been pure medicine for her after all her medical ordeals of the last couple years. I picked up Barrayar to read a couple paragraphs, then a whole chapter. Put it down because Mom was reading it, but it nagged at me and...

CryoBurn (2010) by Lois McMaster Bujold

Captain Vorpatril's Alliance (2012)

I did enjoy my romp through the Barrayaran world again, following the often humorous Captain Ivan Vorpatril who has acted as a foil for his cousin, Miles Vorkosigan, in numerous stories. Ivan is all that Miles isn't--strong bodied and handsome, admitted into the military academy, an expert romanc...

The Mountains Of Mourning (2000)

The Mountains of Mourning by Lois McMaster Bujold This novella takes place 3 years after "The Warrior's Apprentice", right after Miles graduates from the Military Academy. What I absolutely love about the Vorkosigan-saga is the range of topics, the variety of genres - and ultimately the very huma...

The Mountains Of Mourning (2000) by Lois McMaster Bujold

Ledene Opekline (2010)

One of Bujold's most thoughtful books. Oddly toothless for a Vorkosigan. Ah well, they can't all be Mirror Dance.

Ledene Opekline (2010) by Lois McMaster Bujold

The Spirit Ring (2004)

This is vintage Bujold, 1992, a rare standalone published between ‘The Vor Game’ (1990) and Mirror Dance’ (1994) though in many way it feels like a much earlier work. It’s a straightforward fantasy set in a Renaissance Italy where licensed mages work white magic with the blessings (and supervisio...

The Spirit Ring (2004) by Lois McMaster Bujold

Memory (2015)

a colleague asked me a series of questions while we were out drinking the other night, questions like So what's next for you? and Is this all you are planning on doing with your career? and Is your current job how you want to be defined and does that actually give you satisfaction? I found myself...

Memory (2015) by Lois McMaster Bujold

Cordelia's Honor (1999)

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars (wish I could rate it higher)Genre: Science Fiction, Space Opera, Romantic SFMy usual type of read? (yes/no) Yes, very much so!Plot type: epic romance, galactic space war, incredible world-building#I just read this again for something like the 7th time since I first "d...

Cordelia's Honor (1999) by Lois McMaster Bujold

Paladin of Souls (2005)

A totally satisfying vision of a middle-aged woman driven down by past tragedy who takes up the heroic work of making the world safe from the dangers of enslavement of souls. The character of Ista captured my heart with her charm, wit, and courage, as she almost did for the hero Cazaril in the p...

Paladin of Souls (2005) by Lois McMaster Bujold

Young Miles (2003)

This is an omnibus edition consisting of three tales. The first novel, "The Warrior's Apprentice," is where I officially fell in love with Miles, who sure isn't the usual square-jawed, bicep bulging sci-fi hero, and he's what made me go and seek out more of the series. It's rare I can say I fall ...

Young Miles (2003) by Lois McMaster Bujold

Shards of Honour (2003)

TRIGGER WARNING: Sexual AssaultAna’s Take:So, this is my first ever encounter with the works of Lois McMaster Bujold and I fear it was probably the wrong place to start. Shards of Honor is, as far as I understand, the author’s first book, the one that starts the Vorkosigan Saga even though it tak...

Shards of Honour (2003) by Lois McMaster Bujold

The Warrior's Apprentice (2015)

Miles Vorkosigan has a mixed bag. On one hand, he’s the Barrayaran heir to a title. He has parents who care about him and have given him a first-class education. When he travels off-world to Beta Colony, he gets sweet diplomatic immunity and a tough bodyguard. Then again, the bodyguard is there i...

The Warrior's Apprentice (2015) by Lois McMaster Bujold

Komarr (1999)

I feel like a bit of a broken record, but best include the warning anyway: spoilers below for earlier books in the series! So if you haven't read those, just go and do so. Please, you won't regret it!In Komarr, we see Miles in his new life. His supposedly temporary appointment as Imperial Auditor...

Komarr (1999) by Lois McMaster Bujold

Beguilement (2011)

Note: I believe I am the only person on the face of the earth who hated this book. If you liked it, this review will annoy you. Also, be advised that there will be spoilers for what we might loosely term the plot in what follows. This book suffers from three main problems: 1. A fascinating world...

Beguilement (2011) by Lois McMaster Bujold

The Curse of Chalion (2003)

A highly satisfying and timeless tale of a broken hero’s recovery. Those who expect a typical sword-and-sorcery fantasy from the title or cover will be disappointed. Fans of Bujold’s sci fi Vorkosigan Saga should feel right at home with the strengths evident here: character development, world b...

The Curse of Chalion (2003) by Lois McMaster Bujold

A Civil Campaign (2000)

Before I start my review I want to point out that, till this book, I thought that Ms. Bujold can do no wrong, so to speak (just check my other reviews of her books). I don't just like her writing style: I'm in LOVE with her technique. So this being said, for the last three days I've struggled to ...

A Civil Campaign (2000) by Lois McMaster Bujold

Diplomatic Immunity (2015)

3.5 stars. Good, and sometimes great. Miles and Ekaterin are enjoying a belated honeymoon, visiting other planets while their twin babies grow in their uterine replicator back home on Barrayar. A problem occurs in Quaddiespace, and Emperor Gregor asks Miles to check it out as his official Imperia...

Diplomatic Immunity (2015) by Lois McMaster Bujold

Barrayar (2003)

Fantasy Review BarnMinor spoilers of Shards of Honor are possible, you have been warned.Wow, what a wonderful book. This just blows its predecessor out of the water. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed Shards of Honor quite a bit. (And I realize that technically this is not the second book of the se...

Barrayar (2003) by Lois McMaster Bujold

Mirror Dance (1995)

I've been rather under the weather lately. I've done too much physically and my CFS has come along and thwacked me around the head to remind me it's still there. As a result, my brain isn't running on full steam either. So I don't have this post quite planned out in my head and I don't know how c...

Mirror Dance (1995) by Lois McMaster Bujold

The Vor Game (2002)

So, I enjoyed The Warrior’s Apprentice, and The Mountains of Mourning made me cry. How I would react to The Vor Game was anyone’s guess, but I knew that this last story in the Young Miles omnibus would not disappoint me.Indeed, with this book, Lois McMaster Bujold hits it out of the park. I t...

The Vor Game (2002) by Lois McMaster Bujold

Falling Free (2004)

Falling Free is part of the Vorkosigan Saga, although I can't (yet) see the connection. I've read both Shards of Honor and Barrayar, the next two books in the saga and Falling Free does not appear to relate, but that is just fine, because I liked this tale.Leo Graf, our main protagonist, is an en...

Falling Free (2004) by Lois McMaster Bujold

Cetaganda (1996)

Cetaganda is one of those "filling in the blanks" books. It comes after The Vor Game in chronological order, but it was actually written after two or three more books were out. As far as I can tell, that means that the whole issue of Miles as Admiral Naismith and the Dendarii Free Mercenaries is ...

Cetaganda (1996) by Lois McMaster Bujold

Ethan of Athos (1986)

Rating: 4* of fiveThe Publisher Says: The familiar old SF "planet of women" chestnut is reversed in the planet of Athos — an all-male planet made possible by the invention of the uterine replicator. Ethan, drawn out of his beloved Athos by a quest, finds himself an alien in more mainstream human ...
