This book is AMAAZING!!!!!! It starts out slow at first, and you might not see the point, but stick with it! The equipment the characters use is so sci-fi, and some parts are surprisingly funny! The Free-Trader ship Solar Queen lands on a planet inhabited by feline-like creatures. The crew of the Solar Queen begins to trade with them, but are hampered by Inter-Solar, or I-S men. After managing to gain the trust of the planet's inhabitants, the crew of the Solar Queen takes a load of valuable wood, on the promise that they will return and give the natives catnip, which they love. The I-S men, wanting trade rights themselves, reluctantly help the crew of the Solar Queen load the wood. A few days after the Solar Queen leaves the planet, some of the crew members become sick, including the doctor. The crew of the Solar Queen must make some hard choices, and does, causing the I-S men to mark them as a criminal plague ship, to be destroyed at will. With no other choice, the crew lands the Solar Queen on Terra (Earth) in the heart of the Big Burn, a scar left from the last Atomic War. Hoping to broadcast their story on one of Terra's networks, the crew makes more hard, dangerous choices. This is not the best written sci-fi story I've ever read, but it has a great plot. Don't be fooled by the slow start-it picks up and crescendos to a wonderful finish! It's definitely worth it!

I suppose you could consider this decently written but it is very sparse on character development and detail. The story flows fast and there is action of sorts yet it is a very childish story told by a writer of children's books. How the author got so many stories published and got such rave reviews is a mystery! If her fantasy books are as bad as this...? Not recommended for any mature reader. JC
