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.

Gem ser'Edreth is a thief and a darn good one. His talent with electronics is incredible, and his reputation interstellar - but when he refuses a commission for an interplanetary drug cartel, things get way too hot in a big hurry. Complicating Gem's life still further, the family that sold him into slavery as a child is back - and now they need him to take over the family ship... Gem's plans for staying unattached and unemotional seem doomed to failure - and if he can't come up with a new course of action, his own life won't be the only thing forfeit.Not a Liaden Universe novel, the flavor is still there, but it has a few bumpy bits and more than a few loose ends. But it's still engaging space opera. I'd still like to see Miller and Lee make a return pass and continue the story.

This has the feel of a Heinlein or Norton; not quite as good as the Liaden stories, but good SF nonetheless. The classic things it has: * clannish Free Traders * ancient artefacts that are more than just machines * evil corporations * evil organized crime guilds * a master thief More modern things it has: * awareness of mutation, inbreeding and biodiversity * cool good-guy micro-spider-robots
