Lee and Miller Never Disappoint
This well-written adventure is full of wonderful characters, high-octane tensions, and loads of fun. The Liaden Universe, in all its complexity, and Korval, entirely up to the job of dealing with it, provide so much reading pleasure!
The sudden break from Theo's character in her choice of love interest really bothered me. There was no indication of this love interest as budding in previous books, and the previous love interest was suddenly thrown aside. It seemed to me as a placatory gesture instead of a natural character development, which was disappointing considering the level of writing ability everywhere else in the series.
However, even with this disappointment, this became a "must read" for me and I highly recommend it.
