It was strangely believable and full of depth and realism, greatly surpassing all of his other love interests, and it really brought out the shine in his eyes. Sounds from the apartment’s entryway, and low-pitched masculine voices, drew them out of her kitchen. Yay for being an Auditor!

Thank you Fellow Goodreaders for turning me onto this series. I’m just a little tense. My review below still stands. In This was a pivotal book that I missed on my first patchy run at this series. A pale glow in the sky still haloed its passing for a minute or two longer. I have long thought of this book as a prologue to the romantic comedy of A Civil Campaignand as such, I’ve not revisited it since my first reading even though I’ve reread A Civil Campaign multiple times.

Komarr fits perfectly with the rest of the series not because Miles is in it but because of Ekaterin. The stories weave a mystery with action and human drama leaving Another great addition. This station was the very one that Ekaterin had just traveled to in order to meet up with Professora Vorthyswho was to arrive from Vorbarr Sultana. Ekaterin grasped his wrist and turned it over.

For much of this book he’s off balance by being forced into a reactive role, and to his credit, he recognizes that, accepts it and changes to accommodate.

At least some part of this mess promises to be a show. Kendra, or maybe it was Jas, I don’t remember, said it best: I noticed the library rack on the wall of your plant room. Since coming to Komarr, she’d been so close to defying custom, law, and her lord-and-husband’s orders, and unilaterally taking his son and heir for treatment. He’d hinted he would be glad to escape them.

It was his turn to not answer. Ill-fated love story, anyone? The crews have found no sign yet of military or chemical explosives.

She advanced to him. It has been collected in the omnibus Miles in Love. But human servants on Komarr were so expensive.

Komarr is really Ekaterin’s story and what a wonderful character to get to know. But, as usually, what I loved the most was the psyhological portrait of the main characters, with all their flaws, vices, shortcomings and wonderful virtues.

She comes to komzrr through various events and it’s so incredibly perfect that Miles is a part of that process for her, however obliquely or not-so-obliquely.
