    Very mixed feelings about Dragon Ship. I dare say that I am in


    Very mixed feelings about Dragon Ship. I dare say that I am in the majority of Sharon and Steve’s fans who LOVED Agent of Change, Conflict of Honors, Carpe Diem, Plan B, and I Dare and because of the primary characters and the unfolding DOI plot in these previous novels continue to wait eagerly some 12 years later for every little tidbit in succeeding novels that moves this original plot along. I like Theo but without these earlier novels I would not have read any of the Theo novels. Theo’s story is a mediocre coming of age story that should have been written in 2 books at most, not 4. Theo’s Mom is the boring product of a “safe” George Orwellian Animal Farm world where she thinks being able to see a sunset and drink a good cup of coffee is the height of pleasure. Theo’s dad, Jen Sar (who turns out was Daav in a former life) is equally boring in this reincarnation and when you figure out that he abandoned his son and Liaden clan for 25 years to live in boring bureaucracy, you are totally underwhelmed and slightly disgusted as this was just a waste of an previously interesting character. Now in Dragon Ship the story becomes very fragmented with the most interesting sub plot the space ship Bechimo coming of age. We do get to see many of the best characters from the earlier books briefly but overall they are described in a boring bland manner doing boring bland things. Even the DOI comes across as boringly predictable. Then there is Kamele slowly traveling her boring way toward clan Korval thinking to find her boring house father, Jen Sar and take him back to her boring, petty, safe planet. From considering Kamele story filler, I am now beginning to actively dislike her stupidity. Why is she still a part of this story? Will she be used to preach puritanical anti violence, anti social pulp to ValCon and Miri? I am sorry to say this but I think I am finally done with buying any more books in the Liaden Universe. I may look for them at the library or scan them at my local B&N to see if the future books get back to the clan Korval/DOI war in progress or if they continue to waste space for boring characters like Kamele and Kara. If Daav reappears in the future I hope the authors save the readers irritation and let him take Kamele and go back to their boring small life and out of this story.
