Shards of honor: Cordelia Naismith, Betan Survey Captain, was expecting the unexpected when she and her team landed on a newly discovered planet. She was not, however, expecting to find a hostile military force from Barrayar staging a sneak attack on the friendly planet of Escobar.

But instead of the blood-drenched barbarian she was expecting; she finds a man who takes responsibility seriously and is prepared to sacrifice his honour in choosing between evils too great to imagine.
