"Beset by the angry remnants of the Department of the Interior, challenged at every turn by opportunists on their new homeworld of Surebleak, and somewhat low on funds, Clan Korval desperately needs to reestablish its position as one of the top trading clans in known space. To this end, Master Trader Shan yos'Galan, aboard Korval's premier trade ship, Dutiful Passage, is on a mission to establish new business associations. But reestablishing trade and preserving the lives of the few remaining members of the clan aren't all of Korval's problems. Accustomed to being welcomed, Dutiful Passage finds itself denied docking while agents of the DOI mount armed attacks under the very eyes of port security systems. Traveling with Dutiful Passage is Padi yos'Galan, Shan' heir and apprentice. Padi is eager to make up for lost time due to Korval's unpleasantness with the DOI but she is also keeping a secret so intense that her very life is threatened by it"--

I thoroughly enjoyed this latest installment in the Liaden Universe. Two things I particularly loved: one, one of the heretofor minor characters gets her chance in the spotlight and two, the plot line dealing with healing and teaching a new AI how to "live" is really interesting. The one drawback is that this really isn't a stand-alone novel and does require some knowledge of the series. But if you are a fan, a really great read!
