Wow! If this the first book of this series for you l strongly recommend you first start with Crystal Soldier. However the Laiden universe started a lot further down stream than this beginning and the characters in these two stories are just bigger than life legions. In Crystal Soldier (Jela and the tree) and Crystal Dragon (Cantra) the two founding characters, M. Jela and yos'Pelium become real life along with a cast of thousands - well many.

This is the story of the migration to the Laiden Universe, from an enemy that can only be delayed. There are three main threads: The allies powerful wizards (dramliza) who may not be trustworthy but maybe the only ones to delay the Enemy enough; Jela and Cantra's heart rendering partnership; and a race against time to develop the mathematics to escape.

This story is driven by Cantra's character which may or keep pace with the various plots. This works well for me as I believe stories should be about people and Cantra's development into Korval's legend. Also it shows the The between Cantra yos'Pelium and Tor An yos'Galan in the creation of Korval. The beginning of the clans and the meaning of the phrase "There are 50 high level Clans and then there is Korval, let the journey begin - enjoy.

"Crystal Dragon" is a direct sequel to "Crystal Soldier," which is chronologically the first book in the authors' Liaden Universe, although far from the first to be written. I highly recommend seeking out the Liaden Universe books ... but start somewhere *other* than this pair of books, perhaps with the thoroughly delightful "Conflict of Honors."

In the case of "Crystal Dragon," I found the sections about the Iloheen strange rather than intriguing, and the hinted-at mathematical theories unpersuasive. The first half of the book didn't compel me. The second half held me much more firmly. There were moments that made me tearful, and characters I cared about very much: Jela, Tor An, dea'Gauss, the cat, the tree. (Yes, one of the characters is a tree.) I would recommend this book primarily to those already familiar with the Liaden Universe, those for whom the characters and ending will resonate.

Lee & Miller wrote that they had conceived of this part of the Liaden story many years ago, but considered it important enough that they wanted to wait to write it until they had mastered the craft. They clearly waited long enough, because Crystal Soldier and Crystal Dragon are masterfully written and completely engaging.
These stories are the beginning, (both chronologically and literally) of the Liaden Universe, and may be read with enjoyment by someone unfamiliar with the other books. For those who have already come to love the Liaden tales, they are a treat. It is very entertaining and satisfying to learn sources of names and customs and read the stories of the lives of those who are revered by later generations.
As for the writing itself, it is as rich and textured as one of Luken's beloved rugs, as agile and daring as Theo Waitley, and as delightfully roguish as Daav or Val Con.

Truthfully, I love most anything in the Liaden universe that I can get my hands on and recommend it to my friends and family whenever they're looking for new things to read. I loved getting to learn more about the characters that founded my favorite clan in their universe.

This is the second half of a story that starts with Crystal Soldier (which is required reading before starting this book), and as the name implies this is more about Cantra (the dragon) than Jela (the soldier). It mostly serves as a character development study -- how does a burned out smuggler with nothing to live for end up being the person who creates Clan Korval and leaves such a profound legacy?

A big chunk of the plot involves Cantra turning herself into someone else for the purpose of going undercover, but really that just highlights Cantra's remaking of herself from loner drifter to the head of what will become the most powerful shipping clan in the galaxy.

Along the way many questions are answered about the nature and origin of the tree, the dramliz, the Liadens, and other aspects of the Liaden Universe. However, these are occasionally given short shrift.

The main problem with the book is that the plot does not progress at the same pace as the underlying story of Cantra's development. This leads to some parts of the plot feeling drawn out, while others (especially the ending) feel quite rushed. But the authors had to choose whether to write the book about the plot or about Cantra, and they chose the latter.

We do see some more of Jela, but his development is already complete by the end of the previous book. Accordingly, in this one he is more of a support character for Cantra. He also serves as the main force which brings Cantra out of her retreat and back into human society.

The other slight flaw of the book is that a few too many cameo appearances are made by characters for no really good reason. In particular, Lute and Moonhawk must have some deep meaning to the authors but their appearance here really just disrupted things. There is no need for The Uncle to show up again, since he does nothing. And the timely arrival of dea'Gauss is almost a little too cute.

Nevertheless, fans of the Liaden Universe will find this to be a must-read story for the background explanation. Fans of Crystal Soldier will want to read it to find out how that tale ends. But both sets of fans should understand that this book is not quite a Liaden story, nor is it quite like Crystal Dragon. Above all it is a character study of Cantra, and in that respect it works very well.

An excellent tale that brings together a lot of what you were wondering about the Listen history. Well worth the time
