In the third novel of the Liaden Universe, Priscilla Delacroix is betrayed and abandoned by her shipmates. But confronting the crew will be far easier - and safer - than confronting the demons of her past.

Addicted to books, especially audiobooks. Read lots and prosper!
I loved Priscilla's story and how she grew and overcame. Norbears <3 <3 <3 I've always wanted one! For those that love books that embrace female power, here is your star ship ride! Tree and Dragon!! I did feel that the narrator missed the cadence of Shan's voice. Though thorough and precise in his enunciation, the sparkle and edge was missing in the deliverance, especially when there was dialogue between Shan and Priscilla. This was slight and really those of us that have loved these books for over several decades are going to be overly critical. I overall LOVED that I can have this story on my iPod and be able to listen to it over and over. Long live Korval!
That I could listen to something I've read so many times the book is falling apart.
I like how this book ties in with all the rest so well, The different cultures in the worlds involved in the liaden series are not strangers to prejudice, cultural misunderstandings, religious zealots, vengence, and drug problems. Despite all that this is more of a romantic story, and not a negative one at all.
Flat. (I wasn't a fan of his voice.)
"Or a lesson in not angering dragons."
The entire series is well worth your time. Start with agent of change.
A 50-something who loves sci-fi, cozy mysteries, thrillers, an occasional romance, and any genre if it is a good story. And especially if it makes me laugh! No vampires or zombies though - these are NOT sci-fi!
The story of Shan and Priscilla, how they met, and how they came to command the Dutiful Passage for Clan Korval. Well performed, though the voices this narrator does are not always what I imagined! Especially the Circle on Sintia - southern accents? Please...
This book is a great read. For sci-fi fans it will remind you of the series firefly. The only problem is that this book screams out for more books to be written with Shan yosGalan as captain and Pricilla as 1st Mate.
This is by far my favorite of the Liaden novels, and a good possible place to start if you are looking for an entry point into the universe.
Story. I am a huge Liaden series fan.
Shan. A great combination of strength, brain, wit and gentleness.
Women sound (practically all of them) breathless, childish and simpering most of the time - which clashes with the characters as they are done in the books.Liadens (in the books) are famous for great manners and self control - but some male personages sound more like gangsters from an old noir B-movie (and not a very good one either - definitely not Bogart level). Good example - a distinguished Dea Gauss who sounds alternatively pompous, cheap and melodramatic.
No, but I know all the books of the series anyway.
Narration is adequate but often is overly melodramatic and lacks humor and quiet dignity (that are so obvious in the books).
