Twisty and intriguing fun with the manic Miles V.
Always a good read, though not as intense as some previous novels in the series.

Futuristic mystery with heartbreaking twist ending.
Liked Mark's disruptive deal on cyro-revival & paying drug test on wider pool on cyrosleep economy subplot.

doesn't really make sense unless one is already familiar with the previous books in this great series but a fine addition to the series

Cryoburn was published in 2010, and as far as I know it is the furthest along in Miles’ adventures. I strongly recommend this book, particularly to people who are fans of the Vorkosigan universe.

It is well-written and enjoyable. As a quibble, I must say that Miles seems not to have the zest and momentum he had at a younger age, but then again he is a family man now, and settled in his unusual career as Imperial Auditor. The eleven-year-old boy Jin Sato is a good foil for Miles, not just in youth and enthusiasm, but also to provide an external point of view onto Miles and Armsman Roic.

I did have the feeling that interesting things must have been missed in the six or so years that passed since the previous book.

Great book, it was very engaging and fun to read and the end leaves the right amount of unanswered question to want more.

Lois McMaster Bujold is one of my all time favorite SF & fantasy authors. Cryoburn is good reading. While not her best Miles Vorkosigan novel, Cyroburn takes Miles and Roic to a new planet, introduces new people and new puzzles to be solved.

Miles sets out to investigate a suspicious-seeming Cryogenics firm. He gets more than he excitement and kidnapping than one could have expected, to the great disappointment of his faithful bodyguard Roic. Together with an unexpected new friend, Miles schemes his way through another fun gripping adventure.
