Reviews of Cetaganda (1995)
Review by johnafair (2005-09-25)
Miles and Ivan are sent to Cetaganda to be Barrayar's representatives at the funeral of the dowager empress who had overseen the invasion of their home planet. The basic idea was for them to gain some much needed diplomatic polish but when the funeral preparations were disrupted by the presence of an unwanted dead body, Miles's curiosity is tweaked and soon the pair were in the thick of things!
This was written out of sequence compared to the rest of the books and does seriously change the focus of power within the Cetagandan empire.
