From flagship Dutiful Passage to the experimental self-aware Bechimo, the clan&;s ships are prowling space lanes seeking trade.

They seek a final fully reckoned revenge, with Surebleak and Korval&;s ships and people everywhere in the crosshairs.  About Accepting the Lance: "Accepting the Lance is a tour de force! So many threads woven, so many pieces moved on the board, old and new friends met, this book is an extraordinary installment in a brilliant series. I stayed up till 3 a.m. reading it and I have zero regrets. An incredible ride of a book!"&;Nalini Singh Praise for The Liaden Universe®:  "This series [is] . . . the premier place to find good romantic SF adventure. . . . strong characters finding their own way (and, often, each other) in an action-packed galaxy of worlds. . . . Every story stands on its own; readers don&;t have to be familiar with the Liaden universe. Those who have had the pleasure, though, will find many connections to existing tales.&; &;Analog on A Liaden Constellation, Volume 1 "As always, this intelligent space opera focuses on matters of manners, honor, duty, and clever repartee; violence is rarely the solution, and subtlety wins out over overt force. . . . [Neogenesis] provides thoroughly satisfying progression or resolution for multiple threads and will feel comfortably familiar for fans of Korval&;s escapades."&;Publishers Weekly on Neogenesis &;[S]prawling and satisfying. . . . Space opera mixes with social engineering, influenced by Regency-era manners and delicate notions of honor. . . . [I]t&;s like spending time with old friends . . .&;&;Publishers Weekly on Dragon in Exile &;Compelling and wondrous, as sharp and graceful as Damascus steel, Necessity's Child is a terrific addition to Lee & Miller's addictive series.&;&;Patricia Briggs on Necessity's Child &;Every now and then you come across an author, or in this case, a pair, who write exactly what you want to read, the characters and personalities that make you enjoy meeting them. . . . I rarely rave on and on about stories, but I am devoted to Lee and Miller novels and stories.&;&;Anne McCaffrey &;These authors consistently deliver stories with a rich, textured setting, intricate plotting, and vivid, interesting characters from fully-realized cultures, both human and alien, and each book gets better.&;&;Elizabeth Moon &;[D]elightful stories of adventure and romance set in a far future. . .space opera milieu. It&;s all a rather heady mix of Gordon R. Dickson, the Forsythe Saga, and Victoria Holt, with Lee and Miller&;s own unique touches making it all sparkle and sizzle. Anyone whose taste runs toward SF in the true romantic tradition can&;t help but like the Liaden Universe.&;&;Analog &;[T]he many fans of the Liaden universe will welcome the latest&;continuing young pilot Theo Waitley&;s adventures.&;&;Booklist on Saltation &;[A]ficionados of intelligent space opera will be thoroughly entertained. . .[T]he authors' craftsmanship is top-notch.&;&;Publishers Weekly on Lee and Miller&;s popular Liaden Universe® thriller, I Dare

display_description"Exiled from Liad after bombing a city to save it from The Department of the Interior's infernal weapons and plans, Clan Korval has gone to ground on the back-water planet Surebleak, whose people are as untamed as its weather. The old Boss-controlled fiefdoms largely fell to Pat Rin yos'Phelium's influence, but the world is restive, the influx of outworld lawyers, guns, and money a brewpot for armed dissatisfaction. Far beyond the surface of frigid Surebleak Korval's farflung trade network needs a serious reset to recover from exile. From flagship Dutiful Passage to the experimental - if centuries old - self-aware Bechimo co-captained by the Delm's blood-sister Theo Waitley, the clan's ships are prowling space lanes seeking trade. Meanwhile, Old Tech from a failed universe - the ancient but revived Tinsori Light - and the machinations of the mysterious Uncle are coalescing into dangerous opportunity or nefarious trap. And the Department of the Interior is not done with Clan Korval yet. They seek a final fully reckoned revenge, with Surebleak and Korval's ships and people everywhere in the crosshairs"--
