Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Donna Scanlon
Greeno continues the story line and characters from her first trilogy The Ghatti's Tale in this intricately-plotted beginning of the second trilogy, Ghatten's Gambit. Doyce Marbon resigns her post as Seeker General early in the novel. She and her Bondmate, the ghatta Khar, one of the large cat-like creatures capable of forming a mind-bond with certain humans, accompany Doyce's family and friends on a sea voyage to the Sunderlies. This region is a wild and rough land, once home exclusively to exiles from society but now a thriving and unique territory. The party is plagued by mischief and misadventure along the way, but it is difficult to determine exactly who the target is. Their luck seems to turn when Doyce's sixteen-year-old twins, Jenneth and Diccon, bond with a pair of sister ghattens, Pw'eek and Kwee; but during a storm, Jenneth and Pw'eek are swept overboard. Diccon goes in search of his sister on his own, and the party further fragments when they reach the city of Samranth and Jenret, Doyce's husband, leaves an injured Doyce behind while he searches for his children. Greeno handles the numerous plot threads skillfully as they twist and turn around each other, finally converging at the resolution. The characters are complex, realistic, and appealing, expressing and evoking authentic emotions. Only Pw'eek's baby talk gets a little wearing at times, but it is still endurable. The book is accessible to readers new to the series, but it is best appreciated by those who have read the previous trilogy. An especially good pick for libraries that own or are willing to purchase the first trilogy: Finders-Seekers (DAW, 1993/VOYA August 1993); Mindspeakers' Call (DAW, 1994/VOYA August 1994); and Exiles' Return (DAW, 1995). VOYA Codes: 3Q 4P J S A/YA (Readable without serious defects, Broad general YA appeal, Junior High-defined as grades 7 to 9, Senior High-defined as grades 10 to 12 and adults).
