It's not uncommon that the sequel to a book is not as good as the first volume. This is no exception.

Mind, it's an okay book. But it's not as good as the original. Note that there's a disconnect here: the villain in this piece is an Earth-human--so he must be mad, right? After all, Xiks are inherently evil, so they can be evil and still sane, and it's all right to battle and kill them. Humans are (it's implied) innately good, and therefore if one does ill, he or she must be insane, right?

Very enjoyable sequel to Beast Master, another page-turning easy-to-read-but-well-written romp featuring native american indians, alien races, fragile inter-racial politics, long-defunct alien artefacts, tribalism, animal telepathy, and sign language. What more could you ask for?
The second in this series. Again, Storm Hosteen works with his animals to unravel a mystery. Storm meets another race and must help stop a war. I liked it and will read the next in the series.
I read this book in High School in the 1960's. Hosteen Storm (Beast Master) uses his telepathic bond with his animal friends to prevent a clash between colonists and indigenous aliens (Norbies).

Interesting story line, and seems to be one in a series. Off world, with a deranged individual (or 2) stirring up trouble; all in point of view.
hmm, not at all the same cover as on mine! Found recently at a used book sale for a quarter - AN's was the first SF I ever read, I think.
Meh. Not really up to the level of the author's best work.

Born February 17, 1912 in Cleveland, Ohio, Alice Mary Norton has always had an affinity to the humanities. She started writing in her teens, inspired by a charismatic high school teacher. First contacts with the publishing world led her, as many other contemporary female writers targeting a male-dominated market, to choose a literary pseudonym. In 1934 she legally changed her name to Andre Alice....more
