really liked it
bookshelves: alien-encounters, science-fiction, space-saga
Read in December, 2008

I had a hard time getting into this book, the first 30 pages or so - the writing from the point of view of the aliens was difficult to get a feel for, until I realized it was a pack mind - the Tines were packs of dog-like creatures sharing an intelligence - that things started to get rolling. The characters in the book are believeable and loveable - especially Amdijefri, the human child-Tines puppy pack, and the Skroderiders, weird potted plants on jet skis. This book was well worth it, and I'm looking forward to the next by this author.
