New to BookLikes and saving my place while I get my books in order...

Shards of Honour - Lois McMaster Bujold I very much enjoyed this - the only weak point was the emotions...strangely, whilst a lot of the plot does seem to be about the developing relationship between the H/H, the emotional aspect seems to be kept very basic in the description of feelings. If you were dropped in this book at one of their exchanges and allowed to read it (for instance their first kiss) you would be forgiven for thinking that this book was completely a space opera with relationships in there as just sideline plots...but that's not the case as really the whole story, whilst involving lots of politics, plots and space wars, really revolves around their relationship...

Apart from that though I really quite like the characters and the way everything else is written. From this taste I think I would like to continue the series.
