Val Con, a Liaden spy and Miri, a retired Terran mercenary find themselves thrust together by separate enemies. The enemies may be separate but they fate they plan for the reluctant partners is the same: DEATH.
I enjoyed this, the first of the Liaden Universe series. It has lots of action and the characters are complex and myriad. I found myself enjoying such diversities and Edger and the implacable Yxtrang. The story is colorful and the plot is intricate enough to keep your interest.
Val and Miri and very different and yet share many characteristics. The exploration of their mutuality provides a lot of the character tension in the book.
I looked at Sharon Lee’s web site and discovered how many of these books there are and felt embarrassed that I had not read any sooner. I will need to remedy that.
I recommend the book.
