Reviews of Warrior's Apprentice

Overall customer rating: 4.667

solid sci-fi adventure

by Ellyb on Mar 17, 2008

The greatest strength of "Warrior's Apprentice" is its protagonist, Miles. Affected in utero by poison gas, his entire life has been spent compensating for his fragility and small stature, leading to a feisty, cynical personality with a devious sense of humor. The reader roots for Miles all the way, even as he gets himself and his compatriots into ridiculous and impossible situations. There was nothing here that blew my mind, but it's an enjoyable story that effectively sets up the series to come, which (from what I understand) follows Miles in his many and varied adventures. Bujold writes intelligently and has a gift for characterization, here and in her other works.
