The Tomorrow Log from the Authors of the Liaden Universe® Adventures Meanwhile, on another side of the Universe . . . Meet Gem ser'Edreth, a wizard with electronics—and a freelance thief. Deliberately solitary, unencumbered by family or friends, he immerses himself in his profession, rising to a pinnacle of skill so exalted that the planetary crime boss seeks him out with a commission to steal. He refuses the commission, of course. That's his first mistake. Gem's hidden past proves an unexpected liability and his plans to leave the planet go catastrophically awry. Suddenly embroiled in interplanetary politics, a potential interstellar war, and in possession of an ancient object of power and an unwanted cousin, Gem discovers that the mysterious Witness for the Telios may hold the key to his salvation—or his undoing. Dragon Tide Kareen yos'Phelium Clan Korval has always done everything that was proper, rising by study and by example to become the foremost scholar of the Liaden Code of Proper Conduct on Liad—and perhaps in the galaxy. Indeed, it seems that the only people she cannot influence to seemly action are the members of her own Clan. Now, with Plan B in effect, Kareen must act. Is she merely an expert of the Code, or is she a DAUGHTER OF DRAGONS? Trees propose, dragons dispose. So it has been for many cycles of growing, many lives of dragons. Trees and dragons alike prosper in cooperation, and when the trees do well, the world does well. One day, though, the world is turned upside down: A tree is uprooted; a young dragon is cast into action—and neither one knows what other menace may be born on this DRAGON TIDE.
