KOMARR by Lois McMaster Bujold (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below). “Bujold retains the wit, intelligence, action, and great character development that have made the Miles Vorkosigan series so superior.” (Voya) The Emperor of Barrayar has sent Lord Miles Vorkosigan to investigate a problem on the conquered planet of Komarr. But a betrayal there a generation before drenched the name of Vorkosigan in blood. The Komarrans surrounding Miles could be loyal subjects—or rebels ready for revenge. Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves. NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Audie®-winning narrator, Grover Gardner. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here. “As usual, Bujold tells a fast-moving story that combines just the right amount of action and wit as Miles continues to mature in a manner unusually complex for a series protagonist….” (Publishers Weekly) •EXPERIENCE.

RATING: Suitable for adults/young adults who enjoy science fiction stories, or who like Bujold’s “Vorkosigan” series. ___________________ Komarr could be a garden with a thousand more years’ work, or an uninhabitable wasteland if the terraforming fails. Now, the solar mirror vital to the terraforming of the conquered planet has been shattered by a ship hurtling off course. The Emperor of Barrayar sends his newest imperial auditor, Lord Miles Vorkosigan, to find out why. The choice is not a popular one on Komarr, where a betrayal a generation before drenched the name of Vorkosigan in blood. Lies within lies, treachery within treachery, Miles is caught in a race against time to stop a plot that could exile him from Barrayar forever.
