Accepting the Lance – Chapter 72

Jelaza Kazone

In which Korval catches up on the morning news.

There seems to me to be a lot of book left for where we’re at.

Accepting the Lance – Chapter 69

Bechimo

In which the reward for a job well done is another job to do.

And it’s another job that’s going to involve talking to ships with their own intelligences. Being bonded with Bechimo probably means Theo has more of those to look forward to.

Neogenesis – Chapter 20 part IV

In which Val Con and Miri have a busy morning.

I like “a salute so smart it could have driven itself into town”. And Val Con’s interactions with the cat.

Neogenesis – Chapter 20 part III

In which Val Con and Miri are not getting much sleep tonight.

Chapter 20 is shaping up to be a long chapter, to the point that I’m almost wondering if I need to subdivide the sections even further. Makes sense, though, since this is the chapter where a whole bunch of plot strands come together, not just from this book but from the four books preceding it.

The Gathering Edge – Chapter 16

Bechimo

In which the ambassador greets Grakow and his attendants.

Between Hevelin petitioning for Tree Junior to be included in crew meetings, and the seed pod it gave Theo a little while back, I’m beginning to suspect that when they do eventually hand over Spiral Dance to Korval, Tree Junior is not planning to go with.

The Gathering Edge – Chapter 14

Bechimo

In which the Captain speaks to her guests.

I like how the Pathfinders remain cautious of Theo and the crew; it makes sense for their position, but an author might have fallen into the trap of forgetting that and letting them trust easily just because we know the crew to be trustworthy.

The Gathering Edge – Chapter 13

Bechimo

In which preparations are made ahead of the captain’s debriefing.

Watching the Pathfinders try to make sense of Joyita while lacking the key detail about him is kind of amusing.

The Gathering Edge – Chapter 12

Seebrit Station
The Sweet Rest Hostel

In which Ambassador Vepal pursues his necessities.

It doesn’t surprise me that Vepal has an Explorer’s training. Imagine an ordinary Yxtrang officer trying to do this job!

The Gathering Edge – Chapter 5

Orbital Aid 370

In which Grakow puts a word in.

Yes, I thought that was probably who Grakow was. Another not-very-difficult prediction, given the authors.

The Gathering Edge – Chapter 4

Orbital Aid 370

In which Chernak and Stost arrive at their destination.

Well, that prediction was correct. It probably wasn’t a very difficult prediction, to be fair.
