"No one does space opera better than Lee and Miller."  -- SFSite

"Imagine Georgette Heyer crossed on James Bond in a universe of starships and psychic wizardry, and you'll have something like the Liaden novels of Sharon Lee and Steve Miller -- nobody else in the field combines space opera and comedy of manners with the same deftness and brio as these two."  -- Debra Doyle, of the Mageworlds novels
