Overview

Adventures in the Liaden Universe® Number 16

Two Stories of a Tumultuous Time

The Department of the Interior's bloody plot against planet Liad has failed, at least for now, but Clan Korval's firing upon Solcintra, Liad's capital city, to save it from the release of ancient killer machines has resulted in the clan's banishment. Korval has accepted this ruling with glee, but not everything is solved yet, especially with the clan's urgent Plan B still in effect.

"Hidden Resources" deals with untested pilot Quin yos'Phelium, a halfling suddenly in charge of the escape ship for the clan's youngest members as the eldest face several mysterious vessels, most likely bent on revenge. His father missing in the larger fray, Quin's job is clear, but resolve alone may not be enough to pull him through.

In "Moon on the Hills" the focus is on backworld Surebleak, Korval's refuge after their exclusion from Liad. Surebleak is a half-tamed place still ruled by territorial bosses, and Boss Conrad, while trying to tame it, must deal with finding a landing zone for Korval's clan house, and the tree that is the center of the clan. Yulie Shaper is the unknown factor: the road runs through his land and he's not all that fond of changes.

    Fills in a few blanks answers a few questions!

    Another piece of the puzzle is put in place. Clan Korval's home and tree are relocated to Surebleak in this short story. As a longtime reader of the Liaden stories, I had so often noticed reference to chracters and events that were never adequately explained in the major books. This series of short stories fills in those blanks. Can't wait to go back and reread the Liaden novels again. I juspt wish they were available on my Nook!
