    1 thought on “The Dragon Variation”

    1. 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 [...]

    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 [...]

    3. 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.

    4. One of the few books I've read more 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* more 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 more detail. I was frustrated by the seemingly random bits of violence at various points of the first story - turns ou [...]

    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 more 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 [...]

    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 a [...]

    10. [April 2015] Reread the first two novels only; if possible, loved them even more 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 eve [...]

    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 [...]

    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 more 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 more 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 more 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. Three books in one volume, three books on the same theme, three stories of hardships and romance, three dragons in peril.

    18. 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.
