Title: Crystal Dragon

Series: Liaden Universe

Author: Sharon Lee & Steve Miller

Rating: 4 of 5 Stars

Genre: SF

Pages: 445

 

 

 

Synopsis:

The direct sequel to Crystal Soldier. And things get resolved in such a way as to show the creation of the Liaden Universe.

Intrigue, politics, fighting all come together from various places and planes.

 

My Thoughts:

I felt a little fuzzy reading this, as “Math” was suppose to save the day but obviously since Lee and Miller weren’t talking real math, it was just referenced to so it felt kind of Ex Deus Machina.

 

That aside, this was yet another lovely foray into the Liaden Universe. This was the second book chronologically, but I have to say, I think the Publication Order is a much better way to read things. That was the way it came from the authors’ minds and it should be transmitted to ours in the same fashion.

 

One thing I really liked was how much of an important part the Tree played. It has been referenced before, but it has almost been a non-existent side character, enough so that I never thought it was THAT special, not at all. Hope it plays a bigger part in future novels.
