03/04/2003 Entry: "Lee & Miller's THE TOMORROW LOG -- Linda's reaction"
For those who are wondering if this could possibly be as good as their Liaden books, I say a resounding YES!!!! I loved every minute of reading this and HIGHLY recommend it. :-) I'm just sorry it's over but hope to look forward to more books in this series. It's hard to believe that this is yet another book they had written earlier that their old publisher didn't want!?
The hero, Gem ser'Edrith, is an electronic whiz and freelance thief with his own set of rules. When he refuses to change these rules and accept a job from a planetary crime boss, she brings hard persuasion tactics to bear. At the same time, Gem's past catches up to him in the form of heroine Corbinye Faztherot--kin, crew and worldwalker. She's sent on a mission to right the wrong done him by returning him to his rightful place as their captain so that he can fulfill the prophecy in the Tomorrow Log. Something Gem is not willing to do and at a time when his enemy is looking for any weakness to use against him.
I couldn't begin to explain the intricate plot and characters in this book and if I could I wouldn't. It's too enjoyable having it unfold on its own. But it does have a romance in it and I loved those spiders. Something I never thought to say. :-) --Linda
