Oh yes, I love that moment too. So satisfying. It would be good to have
more stories from Miles's world, but 'Diplomatic Immunity' did have a
kind of feel of closure about it, to me, so I don't know if we'll see
much more about Miles himself.

Spoilers for "Barrayar"
It's just one word, really: "Shopping."
It's that whole moment. Piotr sneering -demanding to know where
Cordelia's been - and Cordelia throwing the bag with Vordarian's head
in it on the table.
It's just the perfect moment: defiant humor in the face of
condescension and grief and exhaustion. And, of course, it's followed
closely by "I paid too much for it."
I love Bujold!
I look forward to another book with Miles as its center. I'd really
love an Ivan book. But another Cordelia book ... that would be pure joy.
