Loved it! The second half more than the first (The Vor Game and "The Mountains of Mourning" more than The Warrior's Apprentice) perhaps, but still, I continue to be crazy over this universe. ( )

I fell in love with the novels and stories in this book as they came out and have re-read them more than any other SF books, and I re-read a lot.
Funny, fast, heartbreaking, clever, wildly romantic in the older sense, but with a solid layer of grit. ( )

Very deep characterization, especially of the main characters, though even some of the minor characters were very well fleshed out. Great plot(s) and I look forward to reading the rest of the saga. ( )

Review of THE VOR GAME:

The Vor Game by Lois McMaster Bujold is the fourth chronological about the Vorkosigan family, excluding novellas. I have recently been rereading these and my last two reviews were of The Warrior's Apprentice and Mountains of Mourning. There have also been a series of discussion posts, which you can find here. This review will contain some spoilers for the earlier books, but nothing too major since this is a series of standalones. The blurb is a bit spoilery though. :-/

This is a book very definitely divided into two parts. They are linked and they are not equal halves, but the tone and setting and many of the secondary characters are different between them. The first half of the book takes place at Camp Permafrost, a crappy arctic training base that Miles is assigned to after he graduates from the military academy. I started reading The Vor game needing a laugh and while the opening section isn't maudlin, it's also not laugh-out-loud funny. It was compelling nonetheless and set up the second part of the novel. I can see why it was also published as a standalone story before the book's publication (in the afterword Bujold talks about the welcome fee from selling it to Analog as "Weatherman", but I found myself wondering how the ending would have worked...).

The latter two thirds or so of the novel takes place in space after Miles is transferred to ImpSec, the more covert branch of the Barrayaran military. The theme of Miles's insubordination continues as a somewhat dull mission becomes more exciting after a chance encounter and with the return of Admiral Naismith. This second part of the book was much funnier, with a lot of the humour coming from the reader (and Miles) knowing more about various social contexts than the characters in them. Much hilarity ensued, especially near the end.

This book stands alone quite well and I wouldn't ban someone from reading it out of order. That said, it does build on what has come before it, especially The Warrior's Apprentice, which sets up the Dendarii mercenaries, so I recommend reading at least that book first. In fact, my copy of The Vor Game is nestled inside the Young Miles omnibus, containing The Warrior's Apprentice, the novella Mountains of Mourning and then The Vor Game and a sizeable afterword, a worthy edition if you don't already own the novels.

4.5 / 5 stars

Early in the time line and fairly early when reading by publication date, this book has 3 sections.

The Warrior's Apprentice was the second novel written. It tells how Miles failed his entrance exam for the military academy, so - being Miles - he skipped straight up to being Admiral Naismith. The title, as the author notes, is a riff on the Sorcerer's Apprentice and includes a whole series of adventures as one save from overreach leads to the next one. Altogether a great story.

Mountains of Mourning is a novella, originally published as the first section of Borders of Infinity. This is, I think, my second favorite of all the Vorkosigan Saga. Miles is sent to be investigator, judge and jury for a back-woods murder case. An infant has been killed for being physically imperfect, and Miles has to find out who did it and also give a message that times have changed.
(see also my comments on this story in my review of Borders of Infinity)

The third story, the Vor Game, takes Miles to graduation from the Academy and a couple of subsequent assignments. (After his adventures in Warrior's Apprentice, Vor privilege - and his father's influence - got him into the Academy after all.) His way of handling those assignments gets the job done, but at some cost to the people who were supposed to be his superior officers. It is decided that he should report directly to the dread Simon Ilyan, because Simon refuses to impose him on anyone lower in the hierarchy.
