    One thought on “Conflict of Honors”

    1. July 2016. 4.5/5; 5 stars; AI just listened to this story again and have upped my rating. Maybe it's because the lines have been blurred from re-reading the books over and over but I really appreciate the tone and pace and characterization in this book. Looking closely, one sees the depth and breadth of balance and melanti as they shape the flow of Liaden life. Beyond the interesting crew and all the goings on of a trade vessel, I really enjoyed the masterful orchestration of "Balance" that happ [...]

    2. A chance to catch up with Shan yos’Galen, whom I met as a youngster in another Liaden universe book, Local Custom. In addition to seeing how life is for a grown-up healer, I got to see the fireworks when he meets a woman of the same talents, who is even more an outsider than he is. His human blood makes him suspect on his home planet of Liad and a nebulous act in the past of Priscilla Mendoza has caused her to be banished from her homeworld.Shan has a reputation for collecting strays (much lik [...]

    3. I actually finished this a few days ago, but I haven't written anything ye, because I couldn't figure out what I wanted to say beyond "Yeah, I really liked rereading this one too and this is such a cool series". While honest, that's not really very helpful, even for someone who writes such subjective "reviews" as I do.I've let it all percolate a bit, and I think that now, as I type, something hopefully useful will appear on the page.It's been a while since I first read this series. My wonderful [...]

    4. I have read almost all the books in this romantic space-opera / fantasy series. Some Liaden Universe installments are much better than this one. I read this in the The Dragon Variation ebook, a collection of three novels. In the audio version, narrator Andy Caploe does a superb job (Audible). In my view, Conflict of Honors is just too weird, with all the goddess power / shamanistic garbage, the free pleasure sex, and the sexual therapy, across genders. It is also dated, first published in 1988.T [...]

    5. I am so glad to have discovered the Liaden Universe books, which I enjoy as much for what they are not as what they are. ARE: character driven space opera. ARE NOT: rapey, scarey, horror filled, glorying in guts, self consciously artistic, cliffhangers, serious, political, preachy. So if you like Nathan Lowell's Quarter Share books (but ran out), or the Aurora Episodes (but found them a little too short and tv script like), or Lois McMaster Bujold's character driven scifi (but are scared that's [...]

    6. 4/5; 4 stars; A-I really enjoyed re-visiting Shan and Pricilla and all the others aboard the Dutiful Passage. There is such a feeling of warmth and camaraderie amongst the crew of the ship that can be directly attributed to Shan's great personality. This book is set about 30 years past where we met Shan as a youngster in Local Custom. The authors didn't mention anything about Shan's 'dramliz' abilities, so I felt a lack of continuity. I think this is to be expected thought because this book was [...]

    7. 4.5 to 5.0 stars. Excellent novel. Anne McCaffrey described this book (and its sequels) best when she referred to them in the introduction as her favorite "comfort" books. This is grand space opera with great characters, great world-building and a well written plot. Highly Recommended!!!

    8. Science fiction romance. This is focused on a group of “Traders” engaged in speculation, buying goods to transport and sell between multiple planets.The story is a cozy one. Our heroine has been traveling the galaxy, unappreciated and misused until she is taken on as a crewmember on the happiest ship ever, where people are astonished that her beauty and brilliance have never been acknowledged. She acquires friends, lovers and a new career, and with the help of her powerful new allies she van [...]

    9. I think the description of the book is a bit misleadingOn the cover is two personsd people who reviewed it compare the book to a regency romance in outer space. So when they spring the lesbian relationship between the girl on the cover and another girl(not on cover) You cant help but be a little surprised.Im not making a statement about on same sex relationships mind you, only its like putting something you think is a piece of chocolate in your mouth and tasting licorice.Its not a bad taste per [...]

    10. This sci fi book was the second of the Liaden series to be published. I liked all the different alien races (especially the "turtles") and the adventure aspects of the plot.

    11. I read this book because it was recommended to me.Plus: it is compulsively readable, and hard to put down. I felt like a kid again. Also, I liked the description of work. Of course space ships have work, besides jetting off and carrying people toward adventures. People need to load the cargo. People need to decide what the cargo should be. I liked the book's focus on the nitty-gritty.Minus: It has two of my pet peeves. One, the older wealthy man with exquisite taste. These consumer choices are o [...]

    12. A good read, good characters (Shan is quite Dumbledore like ^-^) in a science-fi fantasy-ish world.But I was sadly kept back in my reading by the weird choice of narrative: we have access to ALL the characters' points of view, frequently in the same sentence, madly turning, leaping from character to another character, even the lesser ones. As a result we sometimes have to make an effort to understand who - for heaven sake ! - is thinking. And, much worse, nothing, absolutely nothing is left to o [...]

    13. This series is getting better and better for me. Priscilla has been made dead to her family for some religious reason at the age of 16. 10 years later she's on an awful ship and figures out they are buying and selling illegal drugs. They hit her over the head and strand her on a planet that has only one ship orbiting it. Shan, the captain, agrees to have her serve on the ship and finds he is very attracted to her. Also he finds out that a captain who made him his enemy is out to get not only him [...]

    14. Very different from Agent of Change and Carpe Diem. Shan's conversations are almost fizzy, as he bounces from fact to funny/sarcastic. The intro says it's an homage to Dorothy Sayers' Lord Peter Wimsey, and Shan's conversation is certainly witty, as is Lord Peter's.

    15. I confess, I enjoyed this a lot more than Agent of Change. I can't pinpoint the cause. Was it just a better book? Was it a stronger connection to the characters? Most likely a combination of the two. The only downside? No Turtles!Now, the hard part is trying to figure out which book in this "series" to read next.

    16. Some really bad mis-pronunciations (IMO) by the narrator, Andy Caploe. But none as bad as the voice he used at the very beginning for one of Priscilla's female crewmates (who was in a rant, and left the ship) on the **Daxflan** ship. Book is good, narration isn't, so much.

    17. I loved this story! It was good to get some background on the characters! I've already read Agent of Change so I'll continue reading about the Liaden Universe with Carpe Diem,which I've started already.

    18. Good writing but just not enough action to keep my interest. Female protagonist and this book/series is probably more suited to female readers. Romance, etc. I've read a lot worse, just not enough going on here for this sci-fi geek.

    19. Story: A new favorite and already a comfort read/listen. Fascinating story, wonderful worldbuilding, satisfying romance. 5 starsNarration: Do not love it at x1 speed. Okay at x2 or x3 speeds. 2 stars

    20. Another book in the Liaden series. These are nice, easy books to read. Good character development, not overly complex plots, but a nice sized universe, with a little romance thrown in. Enjoyable reads.

    21. delivreenlivres/20J'ai largement préféré ce tome au précédent, j'ai vraiment bien aimé ma lecture.L'histoire commence avec Priscilla Delacroix, une jeune femme qui est bannie de son monde à 16 ans. Celle ci survit en trouvant un boulot à bord de vaisseaux marchands, errant dans la galaxie au gré des voyages de ceux ci. Son boulot actuel, 10 ans environ après ses début est celui de Cargo Master, en gros elle est en charge de superviser la marchandise et de la rentrer et la sortir au bo [...]

    22. This is the first I've read of this universe. Fortunately for me, I learned that reading them in order is not required. This book is understandable as a standalone. It easily took me into the Liaden Universe and made me want to read others. As a standalone, it takes an effort to understand the universe, but no more than any good book would.Definitely interested me enough to read others in the Universe.

    23. I finally got around to reading this, after having the series recommended to me by many knowledgable folks. I found it quite enjoyable. It's a throwback of sorts to "old-school" space opera, with modern sensibilities. I quite enjoyed the characterizations and political manipulations, although there were a few parts that fell a bit flat for me. Still, this is the start of a long series, and I'm told the series is worthwhile. I will definitely keep reading!

    24. Somewhere between okay and decent. It's definitely not my favorite Liaden book so far. And if it were my first I probably would not have continued with the rest of the series.

    25. I enjoyed this but found the ending unsatisfying. This one was weaker than the other two in the Dragon Variation, I think, which was disappointing since I had been interested to read about the Hero.

    26. Priscilla Delacroix y Mendoza is declared legally dead and exiled from her homeworld at just sixteen. She spends the next few years working her way up through the ranks of spaceship crew, moving from ship to ship, and getting pilot training whenever she can. The Liaden trading ship Doxflon is not a pleasant ship, but she's gotten to the rank of cargo master, and she can't afford to buy out her contract before its end in six months anyway.Even though she thinks she's found evidence that the ship' [...]

    27. Some people always advise that a series be read in chronological order. But as the authors progressed in the writing of this universe, populated with some of the most memorable characters I've ever "met", they became more proficient, their themes more complex, the writing more elegant. Starting with Crystal Dragon may be the beginning, but one would miss the pleasure of seeing the complex interweaving of character, theme and topic that makes the series so satisfying. So this book is my beginning [...]

    28. Opening: "Eight chants past Midsong: twilight. In the plaza around the Maidenstairs a crowd began to gather: men and women in brightly colored work clothes; here and there the sapphire or silver flutter of Circle robes."I read Agent of Change in June and enjoyed it, but I wanted to read the whole series. Unfortunately, my library system doesn't own the whole series. This is the third book. I hate reading series out of order; it makes me feel like I'm missing something. I think in this case I am- [...]

    29. Reading this with Shelley. It seems to be a fan favorite that I heard a lot of good things about. It was written in the late 80's and so far is showing a little aging. We'll see how it turns out.There are 2 main characters in this book. A man and a woman. There are 2 authors to this book a man and a woman. I feel like the woman wrote the female main character and the man wrote the male. The guy was a lot more fun. Kind of the alcoholic, yet extremely multi-talented, smart-ass. While the woman wa [...]
