Shan yos'Galen, Clan Korval's Master Trader, is working to build profitable new trade routes to make up for its lost routes and its expensive move from Liad to Surebleak. Unfortunately, Korval's enemies and rivals are still at work, and it's not proving easy to find ports that are profitable, respectable, and willing to welcome the ships of the Tree & Dragon.

It's a task not made easier by Shan's near-fatal clash with an agent of the Department of the Interior, or by his daughter and heir, Padi's, newly emerged dramliz powers and her reluctance to embrace them. There is, nevertheless, a potentially promising contact with Terran Trader Janifer Carresens-Denobli, and an unexpected encounter on Pommierport, with down-at-heels Luck and his unlikely companion.

Dutiful Passage and her crew are in for some exciting, scary adventures they'd have preferred to skip, but Shan also finds a new trade prospect, that only requires overturning all the standard ideas of how trade routes should work. Established structures just aren't going to do it for Korval, in their dangerous new circumstances.

We spend time with some familiar old friends, including norbears, and some interesting new ones, too. Korval isn't alone in not being well served by tradition, right now. Overall, this is a fast-paced, exciting story with new and old characters who have depth and a feeling of reality. And since this is the Liaden universe, the universe itself undergoes some development and change.

It's a lot of fun, completely enjoyable, and I strongly recommend it.

I bought this book. ( )

This twenty-third book in the Liaden Universe focuses on Shan, Priscilla, Padi and the Dutiful Passage though it doesn't begin with them.

We begin on a planet we haven't seen before which is divided into two main cultures - Civilization and the Haosa - and which has recently had an attack by Reavers who wanted to kidnap and steal the power from some of the people. There is a lot of psychic talent on the planet and the Oracle is telling them that Great Ones are coming.

Back on the Passage we find Shan trying to recover from the depletion of his psychic talent after he healed and was healed by Tarona Rusk - a dramliza in the service of the Department of the Interior. We also find Padi who is learning about her new and unwanted dramliza powers which are getting in the way of her desire to become a Master Trader.

Shan's mission is to find new and profitable trade routes to benefit his clan but he is having trouble because of the continuing interference of agents of the Department of the Interior. He does have some hope when he connects with a representative of the Carresens-Denobli family who are another non-Liaden trade family which a long history. He also has more luck when he determines to explore a new region of space which has recently come out from behind Rostov's Dust.

We also get to see Tarona Rusk on her new quest to destroy the Department - get revenge on the Department - the co-opted and used her for their gain. And we see one of the other results of Shan's healing of Tarona in that the talents that survived the severing of Rusk's control have their own plans for the dissolution of the Department of the Interior.

And finally, we see the results of the final defeat of the ancient enemy that forced the escape from the old universe and how that effects Moonhawk and Lute and their current vessel Priscilla and descendant Shan.

This was an engaging and entertaining story that I just gulped down and which will stand up to any number of rereads. Of course, there are threads left dangling and questions left unanswered for long-time fans of the series. But this story also brings to an end some of the long-running plot threads. Hopefully, we have seen the last of the Department of the Interior. And there are so many new possibilities for Korval... ( )

Started, and found it continues immediately from the results and consequences of an event...told about in Alliance of Equals, four books ago! So I stopped and went to read Alliance first (that's from nearly 5 years ago, I don't remember details). There is description of what happened, but not why or why some bits are particularly important or...
Whoo! I'm glad I went back and read the earlier book, so I understood better. There are a lot of major threads concluded here, and some new vistas opened. Lute and Moonhawk - that's a bigger change than I'd expected! A lot of things that happened elsewhere had an effect here, but most of this book was focused on the Dutiful Passage, with a few excursions into the end (? maybe for real this time?) of the Department. One can always hope. The Redlands are fascinating. I wonder if it's not only Mar Tyn and Dyoli whose powers interact at a touch...If so, there will be amazing things in a future book. Padi is pretty amazing already. And for all the big events, at every level from personal to universal, this book has a good deal of personal relationships too. Family, and comrades, and new friends. Lovely, and very like the early books in the series; I enjoyed it very much. But I do strongly feel that Alliance of Equals and this book are a duology and should be read immediately together. And now I want to read the books in between, to see what else was happening - boom and all. ( )
