Good to see Ekaterin come into her own
By Marina Ariadne
That is, we see her from her internal viewpoint, and not just as an adjunct to Miles.
It’s lovely to get to know her better. It reminds me of how we get to see Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee, from Jim’s wife and fellow Navajo Police Officer Bernadette Manuelito now that Anne Hillerman is telling the stories, after her father’s death. We get to see Bernie from the inside now, much as we are inside Ekaterin’s head here.
We see Ekaterin very much out of her element, but coping with it and taking charge, as she has since resettling on Barrayar. Well, she did marry Miles, and has herded him rather well. Managing her Countess-ly responsibilities is almost signal lost in the noise compared to handling Miles.
At the end, I had a satisfied smile. I’m ready for another installment of The Life of Lady Ekaterin Vorkosigan.
Two Eventful Vorkisigan Days
By Archangel Beth
Married only 4 years to the fast-talking trouble-magnet Lord Vorkosigan, and Ekaterin has twins to feed -- and fortunately lots of help, because going on a wild fairy hunt will take a *tad* longer than a few hours.
Very fun 22,000 word novella!
