Diplomat, soldier, spy -- Lieutenant Lord Miles Naismith Vorkosigan of the Barrayaran Empire, a.k.a. Admiral Naismith of the Dendarii Free Mercenaries, is a young man of many parts. Miles and his handsome cousin Ivan are called upon to play a simple diplomatic role on the capital world of Barrayar's old enemy until murder and deceit thrust them into Cetagandan internal politics at the highest levels, and Miles discovers the secrets of the haut-women's biological domain to be very complicated indeed. Commander Elli Quinn, sent by Miles on the trail of those secrets, meets a man who marches to the beat of a very different drummer. Dr. Ethan Urquhart, obstetrician from a planet forbidden to women, is on a quest at cross-purposes to Elli's mission -- or is it? Consequences of Cetagandan bioengineering continue to play out, this time on a Dendarii sortie to the crime planet of Jackson's Whole. When he encounters a genetically altered super-soldier, Miles's routine rescue strike takes a sudden hard turn for the unanticipated. Publisher's Note: Miles, Mystery & Mayhem was previously published in parts as Cetaganda, Ethan of Athos, and "Labyrinth." This is the first unified edition.

3.0 Miles, Mystery & Mayhem (Vorkosigan Omnibus, #3)
See Cordelia's Honor for my general series impression. I didn't like this one as well because of Ethan: compared to the straight Vorkosigan stuff it felt quite weak, clearly an early novel. While it was somewhat nice to meet a non-Vorkosigan hero, I missed Miles & co and stagnated a bit through the ...

4.0 Miles, Mystery & Mayhem
This is the third omnibus book containing 3 works in the Vorkosigan Saga by Bujold: two novels, Cetaganda and Ethan of Athos and a short novella, "Labyrinth." This is already quite a few novels into a novel with a complex universe, and so none of these are where I'd start, although Ethan of Athos is...

I read the first two books in this omnibus separately and ordered this from the library so that I could read the next in the series Labyrinth. Loved, loved, loved this short story. It's wonderful how someone can appreciate Miles for everything he can give to a person. I saw that somewhat in the a...

They are all fun mystery/adventure stories with Lois Bujold's good sense of humor and likable heroes/heroines who cheerfully solve the crime and/or save the day, while also exploring social/cultural themes like other good science fiction. Some common themes might be the social consequence of bioengi...

The stories in here are a lot like smart, but fleeting, summer action movies. Fun, full of great ideas, and very enjoyable, but in the end they don't leave as much with me as the other Vorkosigan stuff I've read (just as such a movie wouldn't leave me with as much as, say, a more deeply thoughtful o...
