Overview

The Liaden Universe® series has enthralled thousands of readers, and now two of its most exciting space adventure novels are combined in one Omni-trade volume.

Plan B: Val Con yos'Phelium is a fugitive. The heir of Clan Korval is wanted by the covert Liaden agency known as the Department of the Interior, whose rulers have declared unofficial war against the entire clan. With only his love, Miri Robertson, by his side, Val Con plans a desperate gamble by forming an alliance with Clan Erob on the planet where Miri was born.

But Val Con's cousin, Shan yos'Galan, can't wait for help that may never arrive. With enemy agents closing in, he invokes Plan B—setting in motion a series of events that will have dire consequences, not only for him and his life-mate, Priscilla Mendoza, but all of Liad...

I Dare: On the run from the agents of the Department of the Interior, Val Con has been separated from Miri. Shan, Val Con's cousin, and Shan's life-mate Priscilla, continue to search for him, believing that he's the Clan's last hope for survival.

But the DOI is attacking Clan Korval in a more subtle fashion. Pat Rin yos'Phelium—Val's ne'er-do-well, nearly identical cousin, gambler and con artist-is offered control of the clan. The DOI believes they can manipulate him into serving their agenda.

They're wrong . . .

    highly recommended - all the Sharon Lee, Steve Miller novels are great!

    It is my misfortune that I missed these books when they first came out. On the other hand, I have now bought all the monster volumes of the old stories that I missed. So I am getting to read them in big gulps. I guess I can move on to the new series of novels. The quality of the stories is uniformly high.

    You've gotta go there!

    I just found the Liaden universe at the tail end - a book called Saltation. I was so engaged by it I've gone out to get all the other books. I've not actually read this one yet, since I just bought it. But if it's even half as good as the five others I've read, it's going to be wonderful.

    This is an enjoyable omnibus reprint.

    Plan B. As part of the Liaden rulers' covert war against Clan Korval, the Department of the Interior hunts the heir Val Con yos'Phelium who once was a DOI Agent of Change killing machine until he met his beloved lifemate former mercenary hybrid Miri Robertson. They try to forge an alliance between his clan and her mother's Clan Erob at a time the Yxtrang military attacks. At the same time his desperate cousin Shan yos'Galan and his lifemate Priscilla believe time has run out so they deploy Plan B.

    I Dare: Fleeing the DOI hunters, Val Con and Miri have been separated. Meanwhile his cousin Shan and Priscilla search for him because they believe this is the only chance the DOI assault will have on lan Korval as the Liaden rulers offer another cousin of Val, Pat Rin yos'Phelium, leadership of the clan if he allies with them.

    Newcomers to the Liaden Universe will be better suited reading the books preceding Plan B, especially Carpe Diem, which ends where Plan B begins; I Dare follows immediately after. Both reprinted tales are entertaining outer space adventures with the recurring theme of the evil empire trying to destroy the most dangerous clans so they can succeed in their plan for domination. The heroes are fully developed while Pat will prove to have depth beyond being a shallow cousin. This is an enjoyable omnibus reprint.
