    1. This mind melting mixture of lust and domesticity was entirely novel to him Well, half novel he knew how to handle lust It was the domesticity that had ambushed his guard High marks for Miles in Love, three off world, romantic and suspenseful sci fi stories This trilogy revolves primarily around Lord Miles Vorkosigan and his new heart throb, a courageous widow named Ekaterin with her 9 year old son Nikki Here s the skinny on each one 1 Komarr Miles meets Ekaterin Solid romantic suspense 4.5 star [...]

    4. This omnibus especially The Civil Campaign highlights the main element that make the Vorkosigan Saga so great The secret sauce LMB s grasp on relationships, and the way they intersect with sexuality and culture and individual trauma The rising action and the whodunnit are captivating, for sure, but it s Ekaterin and Cordelia and Mark that make me cry and feel things If you want sci fi without stilted caricatures instead of characters, and that takes the impacts of technology on society and cultu [...]


    5. I didn t really enjoy Komarr the Miles Ekaterin stuff weirdly reminded me of a Biblical story that s always left me a bit uncomfortable But A Civil Campaign is so charming I did like the change in pace and tone, the way it worked so nicely as a fan of Heyer and Austen and the frothy romances, shot through with the Vor political intrigues I ve come to love And the butter bugs, ahahahahahaI did like the butter bugs.


    6. Yes, I have read both novels and the short story that make up this compilation before It was worth reading again, back to back, especially with the illuminating afterword This is one of those dangerously good books I read from half way through book one to the end of book two in one sitting And then I went back to re read my favorite scenes I love this series, now I want to re read them all Update Re read on my Kindle in 2011.


    7. Hands down best omnibus since Young Miles I probably even like this one better, but you HAVE to read Young Miles to appreciate the title character enough for Miles in Love Stayed up until the wee hours of the morning because I couldn t put it down Miles Vorkosigan is a fictional character I would love to meet I m half in love with him as it is


    8. There is nothing I didn t like about these three stories I bought the omnibus specifically to read the short novella Winterfair Gifts because I had already read the other two stories separately TOTALLY worth it This is so far my favorite omnibus, although Young Miles is such a close second, it s nearly a tie Without a doubt, I will be reading this again.


    9. While I really enjoyed Komarr and Winterfair Gifts, the standout of this omnibus was A Civil Campaign WOW, what a great book Sharp and witty, it had me literally crying with laughter about halfway through Now I just have to backtrack and go through Miles Errant omni 3 and Miles, Mutants and Microbes omni 4.



    10. Tehani and I continue our voyage into Lois McMaster Bujold s Miles land, in a conversational review utterly replete with spoilers TEHANI It seemed logical to do the whole omnibus at once this time We had both raced ahead of ourselves, interested in reading the books than reporting on them, and before we knew it, Komarr, A Civil Campaign and Winterfair Gifts were all done These three works are very strongly tied though, with the arc of the love story between Miles and Ekaterin, so it makes sense [...]


    11. I AM SO CROSS As Memory is not included in any of the new omnibuses, I skipped it entirely, meaning I have been totally spoiled for it by the events of Komarr and A Civil Campaign It did puzzle me at the time, given that Bujold never reveals vital plot points in flashback GRR, AGHH, DEATH TO ALL SPOILERS ETC view spoiler KomarrMan, Duv Galeni s romance must have occurred in Memory too I figured it also contains the death of Admiral Naismith and a terrible accident befalling Simon Illyan TELL ME [...]





    12. This is one of five omnibus volumes incorporating most of the novels and short stories in the Vorkosigan Saga by Bujold It can loosely be described as Space Opera although the series often blends genres Often as signaled by Miles, Mystery Mayhem mystery, usually action adventure, and in this one definitely romance Not that Miles hasn t had his love interests in previous books but here romance is the focus, although if you re looking for romance aisle fare, you re in the wrong place which is a l [...]


    13. This is an omnibus edition, containing the novels Komarr and A Civil Campaign, as well as the novella Winterfair Gifts As I work my way through the Vorkosigan novels, it s the only omnibus available for Kindle that made sense for me to buy.If I had to rate them individually, I d give Komarr 4 stars, A Civil Campaign 5 stars and Winterfair Gifts a weak 4 stars.Komarr, for me, was a slighly above average entry into the Vorkosgian saga What made it above average was that it seemed to be headed in t [...]


    14. Rating this omnibus, that comprises the novels Komarr and A Civil Campaign and the novella Winterfair Gifts, gave me fits On the one hand, Komarr amazed me in many ways, not least of which the fact that it surpasses its remarkable predecessor Memory, which until now had been my favorite novel in the series Komarr is a gripping mystery romance adventure featuring a spectacularly rendered female character, a fascinating bit of political sabotage, and a many layered mystery to unravel I absolutely [...]


    15. I ve read all of the Miles Vorkosigan series, but will only be reviewing this book, because frankly, now that I ve read them all in a flurry, it would take forever to go back and review each one But A Civil Campaign, which is included in this omnibus edition, is my favorite I love this series, because it s really a treat to be able to dig into a long series about one character, and watch the character and writer develop over time It s said that any book in this series can be read as a stand alon [...]


    16. Product Description __Two complete novels and a short novel in one large volume Komarr Miles Vorkosigan is sent to Komarr, a planet that could be a garden with a thousand years of terraforming or an uninhabitable wasteland, if the terraforming project fails The solar mirror vital to the project has been shatteredby a ship hurtling off course, and Miles Vorkossigan has been sent to find out if it was an accident, or sabotage Miles uncovers a plot that could exile him from Barrayar forever and di [...]


    17. Miles in love3 books in 1 omnibusFirst Komarr, Miles as recently appointed Auditor goes to Komarr to investigate a possible accident or sabotage to the solar disc for the planet, there he finds that things might not be as easy, especially after they find the body of a missing terraform ex worker on space by the crash Several plots unfold, like the Barrayan administrator taking money away from one department, soon they find he was being fooled and the money scam was than that, and the mirror pro [...]


    18. This omnibus is a good match, being Miles s real romance He s had romances before, with ladies who appreciate him, but they don t want the Barrayaran baggage that comes with him.In Komarr, Miles meets Ekaterin Vorsoisson, a woman who would be perfect, being of the Vor class and the right age, except she s married He s on Komarr part of the Barrayaran empire via conquest with a fellow Lord Auditor to examine the accident that resulted in great damage to the solar array that s important to Komarr [...]


    19. I really enjoyed these books So, this is made of two books,Komarr andA Civil Campaign Komarr is a lovely mystery that deals with the consequences of occupation and resistance ACC is described as a comedy of manners and biology , and weaves together romance, family, and interesting science fiction social situations One thing I like about this duology is that we get a number of different views of female characters in romantic situations We have Ekaterin, who is a widow recovering from an emotional [...]


    20. Komarr took awhile to get going the plot didn t pull me in as much as Memory odd, since Memory was hardly a plot heavy book This is than offset by brilliant writing craft Ekaterin s fantastic a woman finding her strength of character in a situation that is also painfully well described The narrative switches point of view between her and Miles some scenes come from both perspectives On Miles side, I enjoyed watching him grow into his new role Both the position itself and his approach are comple [...]


    21. This omnibus volume contains 2 novels and a novella Komarr, A Civil Campaign,and Winterfair Gifts Ever since I began reading the Vorkosigan series and learned of this omnibus I was excited to get to it because I d heard that Lois McMaster Bujold used Georgette Heyer as an inspiration to write a regency era romance in space For me that sounded about as awesome as it could get As often happens forme with the Vorkosigan books, I was at first disappointed but find myself after just finishing the boo [...]



    22. This is probably my favorite series of all time I ve read it many times, and just finished reading it again The characters and the world Bujold creates are outstanding, but what is perhaps the most fascinating is the way she uses those characters and setting to tell so many kinds of stories classic space opera, murder mysteries, psychological thrillers, and even straight up comedy of manners, a la Jane Austen Her themes are universal and tend to at least touch on the theme of the search for iden [...]


    23. This one is actually two books and a short story The first book is Komarr, where Miles meets the woman who he falls finally in love with It s his first case as an Imperial Auditor for the Emperor and he falls rapidly into a complicated case involving mad science, embezzlement, a scheme to close a wormhole the only one that gives access to Miles home planet Barrayar and a very unhappy marriage.While not as good as the previous book, Memory, it is quite good I d give it 4 stars It heads on into A [...]


    24. Komarr 4 and a half stars, really enjoy Ekaterin s character See full review under KomarrCivil Campaign 5 stars My favorite Vorkosigan book so far Miles in love and butter bugs See full review under A Civil CampaignWinter Fair Gifts might be my least favorite Vorkosigan book 3 stars Maybe because the main character is Roic However, I enjoyed Ethan of Athos and Falling Free There just didn t seem to be as much of a story, though it was nice to fill in the pieces


    25. Reread, after I finished Memory again Only read the novels, not the novella.What I liked best this time was the marvelous letter of apology that Miles wrote to Ekaterin It might not have been in verse, but it was poetry in the purest sense.Komarr and A Civil Campaign I had previously read the two novels that covered all aspects of Miles and Ekaterin s love story up to their decision to marry Oh, I hope that s not too big a spoiler For the omnibus collection a novella was added, called Winterfair [...]
