IT STARTS WITH A MAN WHO WAS NOT WHAT HE SEEMED "The man who was not Terrence O'Grady had come quietly." Introducing Val Con yos'Phelium - interstellar spy, starship pilot, musician, and incidentally, a brother to Clutch Turtles. Running from an assassination he comes upon Miri Robertson, a not-so-retired mercenary soldier born to trouble on a back world and facing disastrously uneven odds in a firefight with her former employer's enemies. Forced to intervene, Val Con becomes a target himself, and the pair are hunted, hounded across space, becoming unwilling partners of necessity. Facing terrible danger from within and without, their own skills and training argue that one of them must die if either is to survive. But Val Con has faced tricky situations before, and he's not about to let something like impossible odds get him down. About Dragon in Exile: "[S]prawling and satisfying. . . .

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 (R) thriller, I Dare
