Shan and Pricilla *sigh*

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!

I knew I loved the story already though...

What made the experience of listening to Conflict of Honors the most enjoyable?

That I could listen to something I've read so many times the book is falling apart.

What did you like best about this story?

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.

What three words best describe Andy Caploe’s voice?

Flat. (I wasn't a fan of his voice.)

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

"Or a lesson in not angering dragons."

Any additional comments?

The entire series is well worth your time. Start with agent of change.

narrator's manner is quite irritating

What did you love best about Conflict of Honors?

Story. I am a huge Liaden series fan.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Shan. A great combination of strength, brain, wit and gentleness.

What aspect of Andy Caploe’s performance would you have changed?

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.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, but I know all the books of the series anyway.

Any additional comments?

Narration is adequate but often is overly melodramatic and lacks humor and quiet dignity (that are so obvious in the books).

Shan and Priscilla!

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...

the best

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.

It's got everything!

Space travel, energy weapons,, knife fighting, mental paranormal abilities, kids, handsome Captain, strong heroine, efficient men of business, and Romance! Who could ask for anything more? And written so long ago. How did I miss these prolific authors in all the years I have been reading science fiction. Love it. Andy Caploe does a good job with pacing, voices, and the like. Just not the very best I've heard.

boring. it is one of those books were all the " heros " are self deprecating and blame themselves for everything and think they are unworthy of the other. they never do anything selfish
. . yada yada boring. mellow dramatic. and a poor reading.

Story very good but

New narrator and hard to get used to. Especially the southern accent is off and misplaced. But the story compelled me so much so, that I more or less got used to the narrator.
