I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, it brought back an excitement that I hadn't felt in a while when reading science fiction. When I was 10, I discovered science fiction in the school library, an author named Andre Norton, who was really Mary Alice Norton, a librarian and so much more. She wrote of space adventurers, cops, rangers, and animals that were our equals and partners. Telepathy, cultures, love, hate, anger, politics, but told simply and clearly. Strong women and men, who I could look up to and want to emulate, want to be, especially the telepaths who could communicate with animals. I found that excitement again with Ms Reason's characters, her cultures, worlds, galaxies. Our search for love, and purpose. Her explanations and descriptions rang true to me. I look forward to more of her writings.
