"Quite and adventure tale, a love story, and a damned good ecological drama!"
The jungles of the planet Ver Day were unforgiving to natives--and death for offworlders. Sled-hauler Sal banks didn't like to have to depend on anyone or anything, but she needed extra muscle to pull a sled on her next cargo run, so she hired Meesha Raschad first and found out he wa

I have enjoyed reading this book. I have purchased five different copies because of rereading. It has a few typos in the book but you can tell what they were really saying. This book would definately make an excellent sci-fi movie.

Recommends it for: If you like science-fiction and/or adventure, you'll love this.
I adore this book and have read it many times. Not only does she create a fantastic enviroment and culture, but it's also an excellent adventure story. Heald packs her story lot of detail that doesn't slow down the momentum of the story, but provides the reader with a wonderful surprises each time they read the book.
I truly love this book. I wish there was something else by this author, that it was available on Kindle and on Audio. My paperback copy is falling apart and I'd better buy a replacement while I can still find it. I reread it once or twice a year.
