New Releases in the Realms of Sci-Fi and Fantasy Books

Here is this week's suggestion for new releases:

Fledgling (Liaden Universe Novel) by Sharon Lee (Author), Steve Miller (Author)
Product Description: 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!
Don't forget to check out the Destineers blog - it's back to school and the magical worlds!

Good Morning Elizabeth! I think that ones sounds like a lot of fun! I love it when they cross genres and mystery and fantasy pair really well.

If I went off world to do research, would it be more simple than the struggles I have on world? Hope not...but then, anything off world sounds risky.
