    About 70 pages. Two fairly interesting stories, Hidden Resources and Moon on the Hills. They each take place after Plan B and I Dare. These two short stories are also published in anthologies, including A Liaden Universe® Constellation: Volume Two.In Hidden Resources (3.5 stars),Setting: Runig's Rock and Surebleak. Characters: Juntavas Sector Judge, Natessa "The Assassin" (Pat Rin's life mate) and young Quin, Pat Rin's teenage son, a newly minted pilot trying to be brave and smart. The story al [...]

    4/5; 4 stars; A-Both of these stories take place after 'I Dare'.The first story concerns the return of the clan's children from the hiding place they took up when plan b was put into effect. It would have been a much better story IMO if the fight between Natesa, Kareen, and the invaders was told in more detail. Still a good story and we see Kareen re-united with her not so beloved brother at the end of it.In the other story, Pat Rin has to find a place to put Jelaza Kazone (and integral clan hou [...]

    Hidden Resources is another short story set at the same time as Ghost Ship - it shows the coming home of Clan Korval's treasures - the young children who had been spirited away to safety. They are supposed to be taken home by Pat Rin's lifemate Inas, which is a tale in itself.Moon on the Hills is also set in the timeframe of Ghost Ship - Jelaza Kanzone has to be set down somewhere and it has to be near the rest of the main port of Surebleak, so ideally it should be at the end of the main road, b [...]

    Two short stories that fill in a couple of gaps in the Liaden universe post-I Dare - definitely worth reading for Liaden fans.I liked the first story especially, as it focused on the characters who have been off-stage in the latter books as well as giving a glimpse of the next generation of the Korval clan.

    I found Hidden Assets to be a bit short. I'd like to know exactly what Natesa and Lady Kareen did to repel the invaders! As to Moon on the Hills, I had wondered how the Tree would settle on Surebleak since it's removal from Liad had created a lake. Overall it was a good read.

    'TheTree' arrives safely on Surebleak (big sigh of relief!) - Liad-o-phile

    One thing I know: a Liaden story from Lee and Miller will always please, and I was not disappointed. Some suspense, a dose of humor, and added background for characters from the main series made this two-story collection a nice addition to my collection.This one gives us a vignette of two of my favorites, Quin and his father Pat Rin yos'Phelium. The stories are set during the midst of the Plan B/Surebleak story arc, and without having read the main novels of that arc, these two stories probably [...]

    4 stars.The first story is about the kids who have been packed off to Runig's Rock with Luken and Kareen. Quin is Pat Rin's son and is aware that his father is the only one who hasn't reported in since Plan B has been enacted. Then Inas arrived on the Rock followed by an enemy ship and Quin had to lift off as Pilot in charge. These Korval kids definitely don't have much of a young and carefree childhood!!The second story is about Yulie Shaper, who will end up as Korval's neighbor on Surebleak. P [...]

    Goid book, but short.

  • Laura

    Extra details I was really glad to have, and strengthening of characters and relationships.

  • Erin Penn

    Two short stories from the Laiden Universe - "Hidden Resources" and "Moon on the Hills".Both stories fit closely into recent happenings in the novel portion of the Laiden Universe. Without knowledge of at least the cultural structure of Laiden and Surebleak, the stories would be hard to understand so these are not stand-alones.Hidden Resources ending feels too cut and dry. Likely what happens offscreen is in another story of the Laiden Universe, I just haven't read it yet. But that makes this st [...]

  • Sbuchler

    This contains two short stories. First, “Hidden Resources” tells the story of Natessa/Inas Bharr recovering the hidden Korval children during the Clan’s transfer to Surebleak. It gives a bit more insight into Pat Rin’s son Quinn then the books do, but it is not a particularly memorable tale.“Moon on the Hills” shows Pat Rin trying to negotiate for right-of-passage on the road to the soon-to-be-installed-on-Surebleak Korval clanhouse. While it could’ve painted a more interesting and [...]

    This chapbook contains two Liaden series short stories. The first, Hidden Resources describes where Luken & Lady Kareen have been during the course of Plan B. The second, Moon on The Hills describes the arrival of Jelaza Kazone to Surebleak, from an unusual perspective.Loved it, what a pleasant dabble in the Liaden universe, while I we wait for the next novel.

  • Michelle

    Every year I look forward to the vignettes for the Liaden universe. This year was no exception. The two stories this year had little glimpses of life on Surebleak and an interlude right after Plan B. Both were enjoyable but sped by too quickly. Luckily the authors are in the process of publishing more stories in this universe, so there is more to look forward too!

  • Jeff Crosby

    A pairing of background stories related to the move of Clan Korval to Shurebleak. Each story is just a little background trifle, with no real substance. They fill gaps that didn't need to be filled.

  • Rita C

    two more good stories about Pat Rin and family. :)

  • J.c.

    Halfling MoonGreat couple of stories, fills in some of the missing blanks. Worth reading by fans of Liaden universe for sure.
