The Joys of Korval

Welcome to the Liaden Universe

“Hurray for the Liaden Universe,
where men can be tender,
women can be tough,
and turtles can be — well, Turtles.”
— Maureen Tan, author of Run, Jane, Run

Wow.

Just finished Local Custom.

And.

Wow.

Read this book.

Do not pass go.

Do not collect $200.

Just go to your library, look up Sharon Lee and Steve Miller. And. Read. Now.

If you have any love for character-driven fiction, and an ability to at least tolerate a sci-fi-ish world, you won’t be able to put it down.

There are very few books I can’t put down, but almost all that I’ve read of this series is in that category. Literally. I love Bujold, I love Miles and Ekaterin and even Ivan. But I can put them down. I don’t like to, but I can.

With these, it’s doubtful.

There are very few books where I get so ensconced in the story that I lose track of time, but I’ve done that with almost all of these. Their world entices, lures, until I forget about my own.

And then…THEN…then there are the turtles.
