This twenty-sixth book in the Liaden universe is the direct sequel to TRADER'S LEAP. It takes place on Colemeno and is about the Dutiful Passage and its traders looking to find new profitable trade opportunities for Clan Korval.

Colemeno was settled long ago by exiled Small Talents from Liad. Their escape was aided by Clan Korval and Clan Ixin. The planet is in the Ambient which has a powerful magnifying effect on those with talents. The Ambient almost caused the settlement to fail since many of the talents couldn't survive in the face of that much power. It led to the development of a grid which buffered the Ambient. Those who live under the grid are determined to be Civilized. Those who can survive without the grid and have wild talents are the Haosa. And those without talents are called the Deaf and are only recently allowed an equal place in society.

This story is told in part by the Councilor for the Deaf Majel ziaGorn who is determined to better the lot of his people even while some other council members really want to revert to the old times when the Deaf were under the control of the talents. Currently, Deaf businesses are seeing a rash of attacks that were under the legal limit but considered mischief which is building a potential revolution among the Deaf.

Majel volunteers to be the liaison for the trade mission to help them with their work and to let them know about local custom. Meanwhile, the trade mission is facing some obstacles too. Pressure from the kezlBlythes to send business their way is an obstacle to be overcomes. Especially since the kezlBlythes aren't shy about using their talents to pressure and intimidate and even murder.

And Padi, besides her work as a trader opening up a new port, is dealing with her own talents and a new relationship with Tekelia who is the Speaker for the Haosa.

This was another excellent entry into the long-running Liaden Universe series. It is filled with great worldbuilding and wonderful characters.

This collection of ten stories from the Liaden Universe has copyrights from 2019 to 2021. All the stories have been previously published in a wide variety of venues from chapbooks to themed anthologies.

The stories vary in length and theme and reason for being. Some of discovery stories that fill in the background or catch up on characters who have roles in the novels. Others are told about brand-new characters in previously unexplored parts of the Liaden Universe.

All of the stories were well-written and entertaining. Quite a few of the stories seem to touch on the Liaden concept of Luck from Mar Tyn's discovery story Fortune's Favors to Preferred Seating which tells of the days when the small talents were exiled from Liad and taken to a planet deep in the Ambient. Ambient Conditions is a companion story to Preferred Seating told from a different point of view.

The story I liked the best was Dead Men Dream because I had been wondering whatever happened to Bar Jan and his man after his delm declared him dead after his fight with Jethri Gobelyn ven'Deelin. The story was filled with action, danger, and character growth.

Fans of the Liaden Universe will enjoy having all of these shorter works conveniently to hand in one collection.

The trade team from Dutiful Passage are on Colemeno to assess opening a Korval trade office there. But the ambient psi there makes life more difficult--for everyone, including the residents. Things get tangled, as always with Clan Korval in the mix.

A worthy addition to the series.
