Captain Vorpatril's Alliance builds on the glimpses we had, in Memory and in Civil Campaign, of the real Ivan Vorpatril: a man who is just as highly intelligent as his insane Vorkosigan relatives but He likes a quiet life. He likes a job that does not require huge shots of adrenalin, or This is not one of Lois Bujold's profound, heart-tearing efforts--but it's fun, and funny, and it's a joy to see Ivan, who is usually overshadowed by his brilliant and crazy cousin Miles, shine. He likes a job that does not require huge shots of adrenalin, or people trying to kill him, or having to produce insane, last minute plans to save everybody. He likes flowcharts, not practical applications of chaos theory.

In other words, Ivan's love affair is NOT a case of "opposites attract" which I always find a bit unbelievable but rather a case of "Oh, hey, we share definitely compatible views on life and life-goals. It is, really, a pretty calm and realistic story of two people falling in love. Byerly Vorrutyer being snarky!

There are also Jacksonians, bounty hunters mostly, as Ivan calls them, "bargain ninjas" who suck at their jobs , a pretty exciting treasure hunt and, in what is perhaps a disaster that might just top Miles's Epic Failed Dinner Party, the hilarious Sinking of the ImpSec HQ building. More excitement than Ivan likes, but nothing approaching Miles Vorkosigan-levels of excitement--fortunately for Ivan's state of mind.

Overall, it's a farce much like Civil Campaign: no empire-threatening plots, and no real casualties other than people's pride or expectations. Simon Illyan's pride being one of the most notable--the man finally gets bored enough to screw up, and Gregor is forced to quietly suggest to Lady Alys that she take him on a long vacation.

Off planet. What I loved best about this book was the fact that, at long last, we get to meet the "real" Ivan Vorpatril. And no, he is not a superhero commando. He is, more or less, exactly what he's been trying to tell his relatives he is all along: a highly capable Ops clerk who really loves flowcharts, organization, and QUIET.

What he is NOT, however, is a feckless idiot, having outgrown that years ago. Alliance points out, much to my personal delight, that just because he lacks the flashy, explosive brilliance of his cousin Miles or, indeed, his Uncle Aral this does not mean he is in any way stupid or incapable. He even actively sabotages a superior's glowing report of his incredibly adept skills as organizer, expediter, and general efficiency-guru because he likes his current position and does not want to risk getting reassigned or promoted somewhere less peaceful.

And, over and above all of this, Ivan Vorpatril despite being a jerk as a very young man is a nice man. He's thoughtful, and helpful, and courteous to women. His so-successful seduction technique? Making women laugh. And also playing the odds, and going to places where there are likely many women looking for company and therefore increasing his odds of success. Nicely full.

If the face was natural, might the other prominent features be, too? Ivan points out that the Komarrans police themselves, and nobody cares what the non-Barrayaran transients do, which only leaves the Imperial Fleet—which is something that Service Security should be all over.

Ivan notes that military personnel who get into regular crime then become blackmail targets for more serious offenses, too.

Byerly enjoins Ivan from telling Desplains any of this, unless he should turn up dead sometime in the near future. With you, one never knows. By tells Ivan that she works as a packing clerk at Swift Shipping, and gives him her work address as well as her unlisted home address, though of course using that will likely tip her off. He asks Ivan to make acquaintance before tomorrow night, without fail.

At Swift Shipping, Tej notices the tall, good-looking customer as soon as he comes in, only ten minutes before closing. He browses around until she becomes available, then steps up to her counter.

Slow reader, are you? Why, yes, I get a lot of those. He hoisted his bag to the counter and withdrew a large, asymmetrical, and astonishing ugly ceramic vase.

She guessed the design was supposed to be abstract, but it was more as if a party of eye-searing polka dots had all got falling-down drunk.

He insists on staying to watch her wrap it up, though all she needs to do is put it into a machine which packs it in flexifoam. The packaging done, Tej and Dotte close up the shop, Dotte remaining behind to help her usher Ivan out.

Some areas of Solstice are more like space station corridors and some more like city streets; Swift Shipping is on a more streetish area, luckily. Ivan persists, offering a puppy, a kitten, or a pony, which amuses Dotte, but not Tej, who tries to ignore him. At the station, she takes a random bubble-car for ten minutes, then gets off and takes another car to a stop on the other side of her neighbourhood, in case Ivan is still hanging around the first station.

Waiting to answer until she judges Rish will have made it downstairs, she invites him inside. In the lift-tube foyer, a shawl-draped female figure sits on the bench; when she pulls out a stunner, Ivan pushes Tej out of the way, which just makes it easier for Rish for it is she to take Ivan out.

In any case, he crashed to the tiles with a vague thrashing of upper branches and a loud plonk as his head hit.

Further search turns up nothing more lethal than a stunner, though; they inspect his wallet and find out who he is—Captain Ivan Xav Vorpatril, Barrayaran Imperial Service, and the military identity fits with his stunner and his shoes. Rish takes off her outer coverings and Ivan is taken aback at her skin, which is blue with gold veins, like lapis lazuli. It is, really, a pretty calm and realistic story of two people falling in love.

When he is forced to focus on one woman solely his attempt to "rescue" Tej at the start of it all , he actually crashes and burns fairly spectacularly.
