Miles Vorkosigan has shaken the High Command of his home planet Barrayar to the core and has been sent to the other side of the galaxy as a result. There Miles runs into his old pals, the Free Dendarii Mercenaries. And a good thing, too, because it turns out that Miles's childhood chum—Emperor Gregor to you and me—has been the victim of foul play, and only Miles can save him. In fact, Miles knows he must save Gregor. Because if he doesn't, then the only person who could become emperor is Miles himself, which is, for Miles, a fate worse than death!

was almost sorry to learn that Metzov was killed," remarked Count Vorkosigan. "We'd been planning to try and extradite him, before things went crazy with Gregor's disappearance." "Ah! Did you finally decide the death of that Komarran prisoner way back when during their revolt was murder? I thought it might be–" Count Vorkosigan held up two fingers. "Two murders." Miles paused. "My God, he didn't try and track down poor Ahn before he left, did he?" He'd almost forgotten Ahn. "No, but we

The severe shakes were passing off, leaving only a tremula, but he still felt weak in the knees. "When he wakes up–as soon as they find him, whether he wakes up or not–it's not going to take them long to figure out where I went. I should have just waited, and followed you, and bought you back. Assuming I could

"If it works out like she wants, she'll have all the protection she wants. And all the profits." It could work, it really could. If Gregor were indeed under her spell. And if two embarrassingly hostile character witnesses, Miles and General Metzov, conveniently killed each other. Abandoning her

They'd make an equally powerful enemy. I should prefer us to rule Barrayar with their cooperation." "Their extermination would do as well, surely," Cavilo glared at Miles. "Time is on our side, love. His father is an old man. He, is a mutant. His bloodline-threat is empty, Barrayar would never accept a mutant as

Cavilo had not provided the Emperor with space armor. Gregor wore neatly-pressed set of Ranger fatigues, minus insignia; his only protection was his boots. Even they would be quite inadequate, if one of those heavy-armored monsters stepped on his toe. Battle armorwas lovely stuff, proof against stunners and nerve disrupters, most poisons and biologicals; resistant (to a degree) to plasma fire and radioactivity, stuffed with clever built-in weaponry, tac comps, and telemetry.
