Meanwhile, on another side of the Universe. . .
Meet Gem ser'Edreth, a wizard with electronics -- and a freelance thief. Deliberately solitary, unencumbered by family or friends, he immerses himself in his profession, rising to a pinnacle of skill so exalted that the planetary crime boss seeks him out with a commission to steal. Refusing the commission, of course, is his first mistake.
Gem's hidden past proves an unexpected liability and his plants to leave the planet go catastrophically awry. Suddenly embroiled in interplanetary politics, a potential interstellar war, and in possession of an ancient object of power an an unwanted cousin, Gem discovers that the mysterious Witness for the Telios may hold the key to his salvation -- or his undoing.
"Finished reading it in the small hours. . .and, to pun ungracefully, it's a Gem.
"All the lovely language they seem to specialise in as well as marvelous characters and a good plot. . .
"It goes on my comfort shelf."

Gem ser'Edreth is a wizard with electronics and a freelance thief. He is a loner by choice. The only help he wants is that given to him by the small robot spiders he creates. These little fellows help him enter computers via cracks to take it over or steal data, help check for traps, pick locks, even crawl into rooms and spy. ............................................ Lady Saxony Belaconto is a planetary crime boss. She wants an ancient object, a Trident, that would allow her to control the hesernym trade. She seeks Gem out with a commission to steal it. Of course, he refuses. Being a loner no one has any hold over him. Persistent, the crime boss waits and watches. Then she learns Gem has a cousin. ............................................. Corbinye Faztherot, if you ask the people who live on land 'Grounders', is an assassin. If you ask the people who live on ships 'Worldwalkers', she is a seeker. Her duty is to bring back the ship's Captain-to-be so that his Crew (A.K.A. family) may know him and he may be about the business for which he was foretold in 'The Tomorrow Log'. .......................................... Gem suddenly finds himself embroiled in interplanetary politics, a potential interstellar war, a ship filled with an unwanted Crew, and in possession of an ancient object of power and its Witness. Things will never be the same. ........................................ ***** W-O-W-! When authors Sharon Lee and Steve Miller team up marvelous things happen! This is one of those rare books that hook the reader, not in the first chapter or on the first page, but in the first sentence which contains only nine words. I eagerly await the next in this fabulous series! *****
Another Sharon Lee and Steve Miller tale that provides emotional highs and lows and one that also promises more to come. The two leading characters take you through the death of one to overcoming many challenges and high odds. Truly look forward to more from this two-some and the growth of their new world. (If not a new one, no obvious contact to the Liaden one that fans have come to know and love.)
Tired of SF that has no adventure? Want some excitement? Then you must read TOMORROW LOG by Lee and Miller. The characters are great, the plot has so many twists, you'll be exhausted by the time you reach the end... Seriously, this is SF at its best. Good writing, great characters and a Really Interesting Story. You have a thief with a heart of gold, a woman capable of standing on her own two feet, and a villainess who will have you shaking in your boots. So buy a copy! Buy some for your friends. This new series from the creators of the Liaden universe is sure to please.
A really great break from the Liaden Universe. I am really hoping there is much more. Dare I say a new series !!!
Anyone who enjoys books will find pleasure in the stories of Sharon Lee and Steve Miller.
