|Plot Summary of Mirror Dance|
This book tells the story of Mark Vorkosigan, Miles Vorkosigan's clone-brother who was created illegally and raised by abusive people with the intent that he should kill Miles and his family and make himself Count Vorkosigan. Mark has escaped, passed himself off as Miles and led a raid on the evil planet of Jackson's Whole to rescue some clones before their bodies can be used for brain transplants. After his raid goes horribly wrong, Mark spends the rest of the book trying to make up for the damage he caused and figure out who he really is when no-one is pushing him around.
