Just really boring ... too much tell - perhaps old fashioned writing that will never be considered a classic.

I read this book over in Michigan prior to beginning the 1982/83 school year at Loyola University Chicago. It's a trilogy involving three humans and intelligent, flying manta-ray kind of extraterrestrials in cooperative enterprises against threats on different planets and dimensions. A wide variety of creatures are involved, the stories go quickly, but there's nothing I found particularly challenging--just fun.
