Title Ethan of Athos

Reviewer Nora Charles

Genre Science Fiction, action, humor

Kink M/M

Grade ***--  Okay

Explicitness No sex.

Summary Ethan: An obstetrician from a planet of only men. Naturally homosexual.
Elli Quin: A stunningly beautiful, smart, and deadly mercenary. A woman.

Summary: When the ovarian tissues necessary for the planet's survival die of old age, Ethan must go off-planet as the first Athosian in generations, to get some new. This unfortunately necessitates personal contact with the dreaded women.
Something goes wrong when Ethan buys the tissues, but (un?)fortunately Elli decides to help him in his quest.

Quality Average, but good scifi-action-comedy novel. A must for Vorkosigan fans, though not the best in the series.

The culture shock is the main idea of the novel, and very well executed. But there's not much else to it.

Sequels/prequelsStand-alone part of The Vorkosigan Series.
