Lord Miles Vorkosigan, youngest Imperial Auditor to be appointed by the Emperor since the Time of Isolation, has a problem that all his new power can’t solve: unrequited love for the beautiful Vor widow Ekaterin Vorsoisson. Ekaterin is violently allergic to marriage as a result of her first exposure. But as Miles learned from his late career in galactic covert ops, if a frontal assault won’t do, go to subterfuge. Miles has a cunning plan, which, of course, has to be worked out in between District succession scandals and plans for the Emperor’s wedding. And if no battle plan survives first contact with the enemy, just imagine what all Miles’ friends and relatives can do to his romantic strategy.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Bujold successfully mixes quirky humor with just enough action, a dab of feminist social commentary, and her usual superb character development in a sprightly SF romance that her many fans will find enormously satisfying.” Publishers Weekly
“A modern comedy of manners…Gardner rolls with the humor, holding the silliness in check but allowing it to move to the foreground now and again. With a well-placed tongue in cheek, he serves up a narration that has an underlying sense of seriousness and a clear eye on a plot that is entertaining and fun.” AudioFile
“Likely to add another statue to Bujold’s already full shelf. It’s charming, touching, and quite funny too.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“Among the best books in an outstanding series.” Booklist
“A Civil Campaign is a highly enjoyable romp, and will be happily received by long-time readers.” Locus
