A great continuation of the Liaden universe moving the plot on Surebleak forward. Wonderful for those who like the world building setting of a large science fiction universe with compelling characters.

Because this book sets the characters and scenes for a whole different section, perhaps previous to some of my other reading, and because it is following 3 different character sets, I'm having trouble following what is going on in each and in seeing how they will come together. However, I am enjoying the challenge and the quality level of the writing and creativity is as good as always. I give it a 3.5 for now due to that difficulty but the mark could well improve by the time I finish. Merry Christmas to all.

I loved seeing more in the Liaden universe. We met some new characters on Surebleak as the clan is settling in there. I loved getting to know Syl Vor and look forward to reading more with him. We also have time with several characters from previous books. I enjoyed the whole book.
