It's gotta be "Scout's Progress" for me; love the pacing of this and "Local Custom", and even though I'm not a fan of romances per se these are so well done and integrated with the science fiction. "Scout's Progress" has a more urgent set-up.

I Dare. At first I didnt get into it. It felt to piece meal. now.. the more I read it.. the more I like it!

Julia (julia103) | 2 comments Favorite is Pilots Choice which is the omnibus edition of Local Custom and Scout's Progress. If I were to choose an individual title is would be Scout's Progress with Aelliana and Daav helping each other to transcend their positions in society. (Aelli wanting to be a pilot and Daav wanting not to be Delm.) But I wouldn't have appreciated it as much without the worldbuilding from Local Custom that showed how relationships are usually set up on Liad.

I feel the same way! A lot of the other books are so plot-driven that character development just... Gets lost sometimes.

Scribal | 4 comments I like the Crystal Soldier/Crystal Dragon best , then Scouts Progress. My favorite characters are Cantra, Daav and Val Con. I like all of the ones with main story line (not so much the younger, YA spin off threads). And I really wish I liked Miri more since the authors love her so--she bores me.

Oona | 2 comments My favorite so far is the Miri and Val Con books. I did enjoy anne and Er Thom's story as well, which I think was Local Custom. And I really did enjoy the stand alone Balance of Trade and Trade Secrets. Jethri was one of my favorite characters..
