This short story gives some backstory for Miri Robertson (a major character in some of the other Liaden novels) from the viewpoint of a weatherman orbiting Klamath during a pivotal event, and then some closure (or Balance if you will) for the weatherman. Like the other chapbooks it's interesting for a reader of the series and may or may not stand alone for a newcomer. ( )

Adventures in the Liaden Universe(R) #15 Before Miri Robertson met Val Con yos'Phelium she was an acclaimed mercenary soldier. Before she was an acclaimed mercenary soldier with the Gyrfalks, she was "Redhead," a young recruit in Lizardi's Lunatics. On Klamath it was Miri's job to carry Lizardi's Lunatics' special meteorological and comm equipment. That was her duty. Meanwhile, there was a weatherman, a Liaden, known as Ichliad Brunner. A weatherman's job is to observe and predict, and having someone on the surface of a strange and war-torn world could bring special insight to the process of weather, while he watched from an orbiting space station. That was his duty. Then the war took a turn no one expected, and duty took on special meanings for both of them, meanings they'd carry for the rest of their lives -- if they survived! ". . .I loved the action, the conflict of cultures, the characters, the romance. But best of all, and what makes each story enduringly special to me, is the strong sense of honor that impels the actions of the main characters and is often the basis of the conflicts among them. The Liaden world is an admirable world. Bravo!" -- Mary Balogh, author of The Secret Pearl ". . .the authors' craftsmanship is top-notch, recalling the work of Elizabeth Moon and Lois McMaster Bujold. . ." -- Publishers Weekly… (more)
