Read in February, 2011

I was fascinated with this book about the planet Grass immune from a spreading plague.Diplomats Rigo and Marjorie Westriding Yrarier and their children are sent to investigate becoming immersed in strange flora,dangerous native species, a horrible "hunt "and life threatening strangeness.The Bons,former European aristocracy risk their own lives and those of their children recreating their favorite sport with strange horse-like creatures,the,Hippae,hounds and foxen.Mingling with town residents Marjorie becomes involved in what is actually happening beneath the Bons haughty noses taking part in and discovering the secrets there. The fact that the Yrariers brought their horses with them sets in motion an inevitable conclusion that changes everything.Sheri S. Tepper is a gifted writer of fantasy like sci-fi.Her writing makes you think of all the possibilities of life yet to be discovered.
