Here There Be Books (BL)

I love books with great characters who go on adventures and/or solve mysteries re: invading aliens/vampires/etc. I blog about those books at Here There Be Books!


This is the BookLikes thingy for HTBB.

The Vor Game (Vorkosigan Saga)

The Vor Game - Lois McMaster Bujold The Vor Game is kinda weird; the first part was actually a novella originally, and then it was expanded later into a full book. So, like, the first half of The Vor Game is Miles in space!Antarctiva, and the second half is Miles reunited with the Dendarii mercenaries. I liked both of the stories, but it was also a weird reading experience. Luckily some stuff from the first half of the book shows up again in the second half, or I would have been wtf-ing all over the place.Read the rest of my review here.
