#12 in a breakthrough space opera series with a huge and active base of fans – this is Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Academy in a science fiction setting.  A young maverick star-pilot Theo Waitley enters the pilot’s academy where she discovers the heroine inside herself as she follows her destiny as an ace starship pilot and budding leader of a powerful Liaden® clan. 

#12 in the Liaden® space opera series.  Theo, star pilot wannabe and troubled misfit has been accepted, against all her expectations, to Anlingdin. It’s the Hogwarts of star piloting academies, and Theo has been selected to train there with the best-of-the-best.  Even better – she can finally leave behind the gawky, misfit days of teenage angst her previous life so complicated before. Great Liaden star pilots are born with a bang and not a whimper–and Theo has set a course to graduate from misfit to genuine maverick.

About the Liaden® Universe series:
“Every now and then you come across an author, or in this case, a pair, who write exactly what you want to read, the characters and personalities that make you enjoy meeting them. . . . I rarely rave on and on about stories, but I am devoted to Lee and Miller novels and stories.” —Anne McCaffrey

These authors consistently deliver stories with a rich, textured setting, intricate plotting, and vivid, interesting characters from fully-realized cultures, both human and alien, and each book gets better.” – Elizabeth Moon

“[T]he many fans of the Liad universe will welcome the latest...continuing young pilot Theo Waitley’s adventures.” – Booklist on Saltation

“[A]ficionados of intelligent space opera will be thoroughly entertained. . .[T]he authors' craftsmanship is top-notch.” –Publishers Weekly on Lee and Miller’s popular Liaden® thriller, I Dare

About the Author:

Sharon Lee and Steve Miller live in the rolling hills of Central Maine with two insistent muses in the form of cats and a large cast of characters. The husband-and-wife team's collaborative work in science fiction and fantasy include twelve novels and numerous short stories in their award-winning LiadenTM Universe. In addition to their collaborative work, Steve has seen short stories, nonfiction, and reviews published under his name, while Sharon has published short stories, newspaper pieces, and two mystery novels, and, most recently, Carousel Tides, from Baen.

From Booklist:

The many fans of the Liad universe will welcome the latest from it, continuing young pilot Theo Waitley’s adventures from I Dare (2002). She leaves her home planet, Delgado, to matriculate at a piloting academy. Complicating matters, she’s sponsored by one Liaden Scout and falls in love with another. She wins respect and envy at the academy but is forced to leave, thanks to vicious planetary politics, though not before getting her pilot’s license. She maintains a long distance relationship with young Liaden Scout Win Ton, and an odd gift from him draws her into the aftermath of the war against the Department of the Interior, which is even more savage than descriptions in previous Liad books indicated. Enjoyable without knowing its prequel, Fledgling (2009), Saltation is still more pleasurable read after it. The third story in the series, Ghost Ship, is in the works. --Frieda Murray
