E-Books The Dragon Variation I have read and loved all three of these books, but it strikes me as odd to group them thus when "Scout's Progress" and "Local Custom" were already released together in an omnibus edition. Plus it makes sense to group those two - the somewhat parallel stories of Val Con and Shan's parents - but not so much sense to me anyway to add the third book. Except, I suppose, to lure folks into the further adventures with more background knowledge of Clan Korval.. The Dragon Variation is Book Three space adventure novels in the popular Liaden Universe R series in one popularly priced Omni edition Local Custom Master Trader Er Thom yos Galan knows that Liaden custom is to be matched with a proper bride and provide his clan, Korval, with an heir Yet his heart is immersed in another universe, influenced by another culture, and lost to a woman not of his worlThree space adventure novels in the popular Liaden Universe R series in one popularly priced Omni edition Local Custom Master Trader Er Thom yos Galan knows that Liaden custom is to be matched with a proper bride and provide his clan, Korval, with an heir Yet his heart is immersed in another universe, influenced by another culture, and lost to a woman not of his world And to take a Terran wife such as scholar Anne Davis is to risk both his honor and reputation not to mention the lives of loved ones Scout s Progress Aelliana Caylon is a brilliant mathematician, revered by pilots for the life saving revisions she brought to the ven Tura Piloting Tables Despite this, her home life is terrifying, as the target of her elder brother s spite and her mother s indifference Convinced that she has no recourse, Aelliana endures, until, on a dare, she plays a game of chance and wins a spaceship Suddenly she has a way to escape her drab life if she can qualify as a pilot, and survive her brother s abuse Conflict of Honors Declared legally dead by a High Priestess of the Goddess and abandoned by her mother, Priscilla Delacroix has roamed the galaxy for ten years, surviving and becoming a woman of extraordinary skills Now, she s been betrayed and abandoned once again, left on a distant planet by the Liaden starship on which she had been an important officer But she s not alone starship captain Shan yos Galan has his own score to settle with the same enemy and is about to offer her an alliance..

A viral Kindle The Dragon Variation I really enjoyed the three novels that made up this collection, but must point out that the binding was barely up to the task of containing so many pages in one volume.Reading these books in the order they occur, as opposed to the order written, can be very informative about both the universe and the creative processes used. I could more fully appreciate Conflict of Honors after reading the other two, because I better understood the universe and the cultures.Each of the three books stands alone as a complete story, but I do appreciate the collection in this form, and look forward to the other groupings coming out the same way.The odd juxtaposition of adventure SF and stylized romance story took me aback a bit, in both Local Custom and Scout's Progress, but in both cases it worked quite well. Each of the three books focuses on an outsider interacting with the extremely stylized Liaden culture, which allows the reader to better understand both the story and the culture. My own view of the Liaden is that they're sort of high-tech Elves in space, with an overlay of Georgian England.All three books are worth reading, if you find them separately or in this combined edition.

  2. Three books in here Local Custom, Scout s Progress, and Conflict of Honors.The good Local Custom had some very cool, very interesting culture shock and some really believable moments of miscommunication I also liked the relationship between Daav and Er Thom Scout s Progress is a SPACE ROMANCE about a MATH TEACHER and that is the best thing I ve ever heard of That is someone taking all my favorite things and putting them in a blender And Conflict of Honors stars Lord Peter Wimsey IN SPACE Yes it [...]


  3.

  4. One of the few books I ve read than once I love the whole series and keep coming back I pick up new things every time It is an incredibly rich world.


  5. This is a compendium of 3 books set in the Liaden Universe Lee and Miller write women that I can identify with, even if they are scarily so much competent than I am Unashamedly romances, coupled with wonderful explorations of the clash of cultures I especially liked the contrast of the second book, where some of the darker side of the Liaden caste system is explored in detail I was frustrated by the seemingly random bits of violence at various points of the first story turns out that they were [...]


  6. Somewhat formulaic plot for the first two, but engaging characters carry the story along Some good examples of comedy of manners in a science fiction setting.


  7. Re reading this for the second time this year This omnibus comprises the first three novels not entirely chronological in my new favorite series, perhaps ever I absolutely adore the wry humor that is so prevalent throughout these novels It makes the characters so much likable as though they weren t already highly likable I also enjoy the not too scientific explanations of space travel, the mathematics and physics involved The universe building admirably supports the plot, and is descriptive wit [...]


  8. I find the focus of these books a bit narrow It s all Human Liaden romance and little room for exploring parts of the universe that aren t Liaden.


  9. This is a bind up of three previously published novels set in the Liaden Universe, and a good starting point if you ve never read any of Lee and Miller s books.The first, Local Custom, is a good introduction to the universe One of the main characters is a Terran with some knowledge of Liaden custom, so the reader gets the benefit of her experience but also gets introduced to new things through her eyes The story itself was okay.The second novel, Scout s Progress, was my favorite of the three and [...]


  10. April 2015 Reread the first two novels only if possible, loved them even this time around In fact, I think Scout s Progress might be my favorite of all the Liaden books May 2014 If you have ever enjoyed a Georgette Heyer novel, but privately nurtured the opinion that it could have been even better with spaceships, then the Liaden Universe is for you There are three novels in this collection, all with a distinctly romantic flavor Local Custom is wonderful, and Scout s Progress is even better But [...]


  11. Of the three books in this compendium, I liked the last one the most The first two were, in the words of the authors, regency romances, so I was expecting the endless emotional stupidity and miscommunication or non communication that were barriers to the two main characters professing their undying love for each other and living happily ever after Luckily, the world and culture Lee Miller have created are interesting enough to make up for most of the romantic nonsense On the plus side, their fem [...]


  12. Probably my favorite so far, with the middle book in the omnibus, Scout s Progress taking top honors I particularly liked the foreward in the book, mentioning that Local Custom starring Er Thom and Anne Davis and Scout s Progress featuring Val Con and Aelliana are sort of like Regency romances a novel of manners The third book, Conflict of Honors Shan and Priscilla is like a Lord Peter Wimsey type book They certainly fit that billing and I find that I want to own this omnibus.


  13. Finished Book One Local Custom Interesting world construction and lovable characters Well except for witchy Petrella Looking forward to watching Shan grow to manhood Book Two now complete Scouts Progress Slow but ultimately enjoyable start of Daav and Aelliana s story, which was hard to stop reading.Book Three will have to wait til later.Reading Book Three now Shan and Pricilla s story Really enjoying it.Good series.


  14. Local Custom 3.5 starsScout s Progress 3.5 starsConflict Of Honors 3 starsMildly enjoyable lightweight scifi All three books ended very abruptly and felt unfinished So far I don t really get the fuss about the Liaden Universe but I ll keep going for a few books as I don t have anything better to read.


  15. I really enjoyed it Someone called it Georgette Heyer in space, and it does have that mix of romance and carefully prescribed social interaction, plus a lot of great worldbuilding I would definitely read of their work.


  16. About to start into the Liaden Universeking it my March into spring mission Here is the ramble jamble on my blog Thank the Maker girlsguidetoscifi As for these three books, excellent, wonderful, romantic space opera Loved them all.



  17. 4 and a half really Very engaging book Nice combination of a Regency Romance and a Science Fiction Space Opera Looking forward to the rest of the series.
