About A Liaden Universe Constellation : Volume 1:
 &;. . . adds a bit of sparkle to ordinary life. . . . This series [is] . . . the premier place to find good romantic SF adventure. . . . strong characters finding their own way (and, often, each other) in an action-packed galaxy of worlds. . . . Every story stands on its own; readers don&;t have to be familiar with the Liaden universe. Those who have had the pleasure, though, will find many connections to existing tales.&; &;Analog on A Liaden Universe Constellation: Volume 1.

 About the Liaden Universe® series:
&;Every now and then you come across an author, or in this case, a pair, who write exactly what you want to read, the characters and personalities that make you enjoy meeting them. . . . I rarely rave on and on about stories, but I am devoted to Lee and Miller novels and stories.&; &;Anne McCaffrey

&;These authors consistently deliver stories with a rich, textured setting, intricate plotting, and vivid, interesting characters from fully-realized cultures, both human and alien, and each book gets better.&;&;Elizabeth Moon

&;[A] recommended, powerful pick. . .a fast-paced military and political thriller.&;&;Midwest Book Review on Ghost Ship

&;[D]elightful stories of adventure and romance set in a far future. . .space opera milieu. It&;s all a rather heady mix of Gordon R. Dickson, the Forsythe Saga, and Victoria Holt, with Lee and Millier&;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

adventures.&; &; Booklist on Saltation

A new pleasure I have recently discovered is reading books by different gender life partners writing together. I’ve explored books in Speculative Fiction, which includes Science Fiction and Fantasy.

Writing soft Sci-Fi are my new all-time favourites, Sharon Lee and Steve Miller. Having discovered their Liaden Universe stories last spring, I’m on my third read of my favourites of their books now, and most of my Christmas presents were their books! The intricate world building adds layers to stories which are coming of age stories, romances, space operas, and adventures. Fledgling, Necessity’s Child, Dragon in Exile, and Alliance of Equals are books available at Surrey Libraries which you can use to enter the series. The first book they wrote begins The Agent Gambit, which is available through Inter Library Loan.

On the Urban Fantasy side, Ilona Andrews is a pseudonym for another female-male writing partnership. Kate Daniels is a hard core merc with magic in her blood and a past to run from. World-building and adventure are again fantastic, and the romance is balanced with self-discovery and an appealing cast of secondary characters. Magic Bites is the first book in this series.
