In which Fer Gun visits a friend.
I’ve enjoyed this story a lot. Without wishing to slight any of the others, it’s definitely my favourite Liaden story of recent years.
I was right about what the future might hold for Fer Gun and Karil, I see. And they have children, which means Daav has relatives somewhere out in the wide universe. I wonder if some of them will be appearing in some future story.
I find it interesting that such a point is made of Daav looking a lot like his father and not much like a child of Korval, when in other places it’s been suggested that he resembles his Korval ancestor Jela to a significant degree. Perhaps I’ve been putting too much weight on those suggestions, or perhaps they were more about attitude than physiognomy. Or perhaps it’s a sign that there’s Korval blood in Fer Gun’s ancestry too?
