5.0 out of 5 stars Theo Waitley Liaden Universe, 4 Dec 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Introduces differences in culture on a planetary scale rather then regional, bring in different views and government running interferences but on a large universal scale and good ideas that makes it a good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Lee-Miller triumph, 16 Aug 2012

This review is from: Saltation (Liaden Universe Novels) (Mass Market Paperback)
Sequel to Fledgling, and best read after that one; better yet read in sequence (difficult as it is a side plot) with the rest of Lee-Miller's Liaden series. This is realy intelligent sci-fi: the future as people and cultures not so much as tech and space opera though that's there too in subtly crafted measure.

This is another intelligent, people-not-hard-tech, well thought through, nicely paced (consistently gripping), development to Theo's life from end of school, up to reunion with Korval on Liad. Her career as a pilot kicks off with interesting challenges, nothing huge, and then a reunion with her soul mate Win. Again the dialogue, the 'tone-voice' of different culture groups is well drawn and completely engaging. This time an old-tech loose thread to tie in the next in the series ('Ghost ship'). Can't grumble even if it's a bit artificial it fits, and it'll give us more.

Well done; thank heavens Baen Publishers are taking this on. Shame it's not on Kindle yet (only the micro-novellas that cover in-between tales so far).
