Judging from the front cover art and the back cover blurb, I had assumed this book would be about HOW people were able to move animals from earth to other planets and thus save them from extinction. This is decidedly not the case. All of the action in this book, which is actually four novellas, takes place after this has happened. Rahel Tovin is sort of a troubleshooter for the organization that keeps track of and studies the animals, Noah's Ark. The four stories follow her on assignments involv ...more

This is a collection of short stories loosely linked into a story arc, all featuring the same protagonist: a field agent from Noah's Ark who likes animals a whole lot better than she likes people.

This is a fix-up novel comprised of four stories first published in ANALOG. The premise is original, and the science is presented convincingly. The main character is perversely likable due to being so unlikable, much as George R.R. Martin is famous for achieving, and this is a volume worth searching out, especially so for animal lovers.
