Free: Fledgling by Sharon Lee & Steve Miller

Fledgling, a book in the Liaden Universe, by Sharon Lee & Steve Millier is now in the Baen Free Library. A great Space Opera series.

Quote:
Theo Waitley has lived all her young life on Delgado, a Safe World that is home to one of the galaxy's premier institutions of higher learning. Both Theo's mother, Kamele, and Kamele's onagrata Jen Sar Kiladi, are professors at the university, and they all live comfortably together, just like they have for all of Theo's life, in Jen Sar's house at the outskirts of town.

Suddenly, though, Theo's life changes. Kamele leaves Jen Sar and moves herself and Theo back into faculty housing, which is not what Theo is used to. Once settled back inside the Wall, Kamele becomes embroiled in faculty politics, and is appointed sub-chair of her department. Meanwhile, Theo, who has a notation in her file indicating that she is "physically challenged" has a series of misadventures, including pulling her best friend down on the belt-ride to class, and hurting a team mate during a scavage game.

With notes piling up in her file, Theo only wants to go "home," to the house in the suburbs, and have everything just like it used to be.

Then, Kamele uncovers evidence of possible dishonest scholarship inside of her department. In order to clear the department, she and a team of senior professors must go off-world to perform a forensic document search. Theo hopes this will mean that she'll be left in the care of the man she calls "Father," Professor Kiladi, and is horrified to learn that Kamele means to bring Theo with her!
This is the same series, but different character focus, as the previously mentioned freebie Agent of Change.

It's not free there yet, but it should be shortly. A day or two. It should show up free at iTunes in the same time frame.

I got it free on Amazon on 3/29. *RETRACTION* - I thought I got it for free, but I actually paid for it. Too much one-clicking!

I'm actually a bit surprised by this. It was my impression that they did not believe the lost revenue from the freebies would be recovered by the sales in their other books. Perhaps there are enough books in the series now that the freebies are a worthwhile trade-off.

According to Sharon Lee's Blog Fledgling is now Free on Amazon as well. See link above.

bgalbrecht: I first got Fledgling when it was originally released in framed HTML form for free... somewhere (Baen I think), so in the case of this particular novel it was once free and is now free again. Plus Theo's continuing adventures make up the majority of their more recent and future releases so it makes sense to me to suck people into her story. That doesn't explain Agent of Change so it could be they feel they have a large enough body of work for free intros.
