In shortorder, however, Jethri Gobelyn is about to learn a lot more aboutLiadens… like how far they might go to protect their name andreputation. Like the myriad of things one might say—intentionallyor not—with a single bow. Like how hard it is to say "I'm sorry!"in Liaden. Like how difficult it is to deal with a beguiling set ofLiaden twins who may very well know exactly what he's thinking…Soon it became clear that as little as he knew about Liadens, heknew far less about himself. With his very existence a threat tothe balance of trade, Jethri needs to learn fast, or become a pawnin a game that will destroy all he has come to hold dear.
