Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
YA-- When the Ahimsa, a nearly immortal race, become more intellectual, allowing the Pashti to assume more control of the galaxy, a renegade Ahimsa plans to restore his race to its ``rightful place'' by using the violent, barbaric race of humans to destroy the Pashti leaders, thus leaving the Ahimsa blameless and Earth holding the bag. The quality of the writing, good characterization, and element of tension all combine to make Starstrike a superior sci/fi tale. YA readers who have exhausted the library's supply of Jerry Pournelle and Larry Drake novels will welcome it.
