These two books bundled together start off my favorite space opera, Bujold's Vorkosigan series. I highly recommend starting here and then reading the rest!

This contains both Shards of Honor and Barrayar. The former is good; the latter is great and deserves five stars.

The first book, Shards Of Honor, couldn't really keep my attention. I guess it was good, but I only started getting into the story in the second half, Barrayar. The plot is complex and the characters are interesting and unique. You really feel the frustration that Cordelia has with the injustices of the Barrayaran society that she becomes a part of, to the point where I felt very upset on the behalf of the inhabitants of this world. Lot's of political intrigue and plotting, and enough hope for the future to keep me from getting totally depressed by the state of this society! I'd give Barrayar 5 stars. I've already ordered the sequels.
