reviewed on + 961 more book reviews


This second installment in the adventures of Pyanfar Chanur and the effects on her world of the human Tully is mortally flawed by an editorial decision to split the story across two (or more?) novels -- a decision which is not mentioned or even hinted at by the cover material. It lacks even a semblance of resolution, simply ending at the conclusion of a scene with the terse note, "Continued in 'Chanur's Revenge' ". This kind of editorial jiggery-pokery is neither acceptable nor forgiveable.
