5.0 out of 5 stars another great Laiden read
I don't really need to say more except if you haven't yet read any others on the series (I say that in the loosest sense as they are all stand alone stories) you are missing out on some great reads!

3.0 out of 5 stars This is a further tale in the great long-running Korval-on-Surebleak saga, 9 Aug 2014
This review is from: Necessity's Child (Liaden Universe) (Mass Market Paperback)
The Bedel live underground on Surebleak, a close kompani of kin, surviving mostly by stealing from The Others. But a new kompani, Korval, has arrived, in conflict with the Department of the Interior. Their plans for Surebleak unknowingly threaten the Bedel’s homestead. When Kezzi, a young Bedel, meets Syl Vor, Nova yos’Galan’s son, things will be changed for both.

This is a further tale in the great long-running Korval-on-Surebleak saga, as seen through the eyes of children. One of the things I like about this series is how we see well-known people from new perspectives: here we see Nova as mother through her son’s (very Liaden) eyes, and as a Surebleak Boss, rather than as the remote and austere nadelm in earlier books.

I found the tale rather slight and fragmented, taking a long time to get going, being more dance of (exquisite) manners than a major plot advancement. But it is still an interesting and absorbing story of culture clash.

No turtles, though.

4.0 out of 5 stars necessity's child, 12 Mar 2013
Yet another excellent addition to the Liaden Universe will be keeping an eye out for any further adventures of clan Korval.A nice stand alone story that enhances the overall series.
