Snail in Danger (Sid) Nicolaides
A much stronger book than the last one, Under the Healing Sign. This is an adequate stopping point, but I feel like the author wasn't done with these characters. If he was, why introduce Frieda and Andy? (Frieda being a vet student and sometimes-narrator of this book, Andy being B.J.'s cousin who probably has Huntington's chorea and is coming to her alma mater to study physics.)

This is also problematic in a couple of ways. B.J. learns belatedly that her lover is (view spoiler)

What a very weird book with SO VERY MUCH going on. But a lot of what there is is fun! If often confusing! Certainly it's very more-ish, though.

And BJ herself is having a small complication in her relationship with Stefan.

The attempt to deal with an ecosystem yet talk only about maybe four species still amused me

A more accurate review would be a 1.5. I didn't HATTE it, but didn't enjoy it all that much. BJ Vaughn, vet to the animal or part-animal citizens of Crossroads, needs to get them back, because the other worlds they were exiled to (for their own safety) are making it impossible for them to reproduce safely.
BJ turns into a blithering idiot. She irresponsibly brings new species in without considering how they will fit in to the ecology/geography of the Country. She takes stupid personal risks and m
