This is a compendium of 3 books set in the Liaden Universe.

Lee and Miller write women that I can identify with, even if they are scarily *so much* more competent than I am. Unashamedly romances, coupled with wonderful explorations of the clash of cultures.

I especially liked the contrast of the second book, where some of the darker side of the Liaden caste system is explored in more detail. I was frustrated by the seemingly random bits of violence at various points of the first story - turns out that they were the B (or possibly C) thread of the plot, and picked up on a little in the second story.

Oh, and the way that the concept of family is covered is something that presses my buttons, which improves them. I suspect that while I didn't enjoy them that much on a first reading, they will work well for a second and subsequent reading, because I'll already know what is happening, and skip the bits that are going to be stressful.

Contains Local Custom, Scout's Progress and Conflict of Honors and populates the history of Liaden and Korval with such personages as Master Trader Er Thom yos'Galen and Scholar Anne Davis, his brother of the heart and Delm of Clan Korval, Scout Daav yos'Phelium and mathematician Ailliana Caylon, and Master Trader Shan yos'Galen and the very lovely ex-witch Priscilla Delacroix-Mendoza. Not to be missed. ( )
