Good Books Alliance of Equals This book is #19 in the very popular Liaden series. Since this is my first (and long overdue) encounter with the series, I will confess I was not sure how well I could catch up with all that went before. I also have this weird reaction where I either love or hate space opera.Reader, I goddamn love this book. You should read all the books that came before, but you don't need to. We have complex trade negotiations. We have the fallout from some rather extreme measures taken by Clan Torval. We have newborn AIs and a young woman on the cusp of claiming (or rejecting) her powers. We have a vivid world that includes all the complexity and nuance needed to make it believable. And we have characters to love and cheer for.So, hey, go and buy and enjoy.
