    Made me think

    A book that made me think, always a good thing. 'rebellion is the highest form of love' is a bit of a stretch, but I thought the rebellion's leader as a sadist was appropriate (ref. Carol in King's Hearts in Atlantis). I don't think someone from Dickson's World would have left such an obvious stone unturned. But I think mostly too much time was spent on humanizing the slave owners and too little on Dana's turn to the dark side.

    Delighted to have a Reissue Edition and want More!!

    Lynn has created a detailed, well-developed universe which, at the end, moves the reader to want more. Through her seemingly effortless prose, the characters come alive and stay with you long after the book is finished. A sequel or another novel set within this realm would be most welcome. The chances of such seemed slim previously, but now, with the Reissue edition, I hope for another novel set on Chabad or any of The Living Worlds created by Lynn. To the author: This novel was superb and we want MORE of your imaginative, multi-faceted world!
