Too much fun! Among the best in this enormous series so far. Somewhat a fave, I read it repeatedly, but only give it 4.5 ⭐stars because of the abrupt scene hopping. This is a mixed genre: Space opera with magic. I enjoyed the character redemption, the reunion of brothers, the brief battle scenes, and the tastefully handled sex scene.

One of the prequels, "Agent of Change" is FREE on Amazon, and at Baen.com. I also enjoyed the sequel, I Dare.

In Plan B, while Anthora, Merlin the cat, Jeeves, and T

4.5/5; 5 stars; A

Plan B is and exhilarating and compelling story. This series is definitely one that a person has to read more than once because there is a lot of depth and a lot of detail. This review is of the audiobook. I read the paperback a couple of years ago.

This time through I was more aware of the big picture. The war on Lytaxin wasn't directly started by the Department of the Interior (DoI) but they had been pulling strings and stirring pots for so long it was clear that the war was t

Great follow-up to Carpe Diem and a big surprise in the final paragraph makes me eager for the next one!

This was again an improvement on the previous two Liaden Universe books I've read (Agent of Change and Carpe Diem). I think that's quite possibly because there was a lot of action going on here which left less time for really confusing conversations. Mostly I have issues following the unexplained "futurisms" of concepts that don't exist in our world as well as half expressed conversations. Ex: Someone does something someone doesn't understand and they ask "what do you?", in this case it's easy t ...more

I read Plan B immediately after Partners in Necessity, despite my iffy review of PIN, because it was already on my shelf and I figured what the heck. Bottom line is that I think these books are wildly overrated. Clearly there are some true believers for this series, but for the life of me I can't figure out the draw. The writing is not particularly artful, the romances (which I gather are the big attraction for some people) are thin, the "science fiction" elements diluted, the plot arc is sluggi ...more

The third in the series, and more action-based than #2; it returns us to the more galaxy-wide focus, after the previous installment's more narrow scope. While I tend to like the sidestories in this universe more than the "main" plot, I still adore these.

One caveat; the Liaden Universe was built through short stories and novellas, and many of the events happening (particularly in this book, though overall in all of them) presume a level of familiarity with those side-stories that may have the rea

A familiar old friend. The third/fourth book in the series depending where you think the beginning is. I love the Liaden universe. This is great space opera with a strong romance. Things are heating up and the rest of Korval is getting involved in the machinations of the Department of the Interior. I reread this nearly every year. If you like sci fi or sci fi romance you should read this series.
