The Warrior’s Apprentice – Lois McMaster Bujold
Looking back, this is the book where we start to meet the ‘real’ Miles. His bones are still extremely brittle (from the gas attack on his mother), yet he attempts to enter the Military Service on Barrayar. Whilst recuperating, he sources a ship and a pilot, in less than ideal circumstances.
In his first potentially violent confrontation with off-worlders, his brains and luck come to the forefront, with unexpected results. A new alter-ego is born, and he slips into the new persona with ease. Miles’ cousin Ivan pops up in this book, a character who we will get to know better over the next 10 books.
