Brothers in Arms (Book)

Damn, damn, damn. Miles had walked into this trap, knowing it was a trap, in the hopes of gaining just the sort of information he now possessed. But he hadn’t meant to stay trapped.
In the beginning of Brothers in Arms, the 8th Book of the Vorkosigan Series by Lois McMaster Bujold, Miles is trying to juggle his identities as Lieutenant Vorkosigan and Admiral Naismith of the Dendariis Free Mercenary Fleet. In order to keep his dual identity a secret, he tells a reporter that he has a clone. Oh, be careful what you wish for Miles! Soon we discover that Miles really has a clone. Even more trouble follows.

This is a fun, adventuresome book. There isn’t a lot of deep meaning to it. There are a few touching scenes and twists, which is what we would expect from a Bujold novel. This book sets the foundation for Mirror Dance, a Hugo Award winning novel.
