Help! I've purchased the eBook from Franklin but the site won't let me download it. I'm running Mobipocket Reader on Win XP and gave the PID number. Any advice?
No problem! They finally gave me a refund, though I never heard a peep out of them - I just noticed the refund on my credit card statement.
I'm really getting into this eBook malarky and have my eyes on a Sony eReader if I can just get my friend in the US to help me out. See what you've started!
Don't give up yet. At least try The Warrior's Apprentice. You might like that much better.Im reading Shards of Honor right now as my first read of this writer.
I think she is a decent writer so far but im not too keen on her trying too much with flowery words. I can see the romance stuff in the book but no need to make the characters sound like they are in one of those erotic romance books you see in every kiosk.
So far the only reason i keep reading the book are Aral's history and the people he is from sound interesting. If it is as Anthony G W is saying more romance than SF in this book and the others in this series, i wont read more.
I dont like Romance dressed as SF. I dont care if she have won most hugo in the last 30 years if all the books in this series are written like this.
Im not giving up. I like the story when you get to know more about the characters and their worlds, when its SF like i like it. Barrayar sounds very interesting world.Don't give up yet. At least try The Warrior's Apprentice. You might like that much better.

When Cordellia pines after Aral and acts like a damsel in distress when she is actually a captain i dont like.....
Aral is right in Betan they give away ranks to everyone
How is the balance of Romance and SF in the other books? Im wondering that. That will break or make the series for me. That book you mention, heh the titel is promising.
Yeah i know Miles, i have read reviews about one of his books.Much less. Her other books are mainly about the son and his escapades.
No, it's not, though it does have shared characters, Conn.
The chronological order of Miles' books after Shards is:I dont really care about chrono order, i wanna read Miles and see if i like her main character and what his series about before deciding to read the book in the correct order.
