Overview

Jeena Garza escapes the horror of a POW camp only to crash-land on a desert planet far from where she'd intended to go. Alone, she adopts a tigra cub, a tiger-like carnivore native to Ararat, and names him Samson. It's the least she can do, given she killed his mother. Tigras have special talents. Unlike their Earth counterparts, they can stand erect, and do it comfortably. As Samson matures, he demonstrates an even more astonishing skill, one that places serious doubts on the accuracy of the planetary survey that opened Ararat for colonization. Then Jeena finds herself caught up in the last thing she wants--a war between a group of religious fanatics and a culture that is their diametric opposite--as Samson discovers the truth about his people, one that had been kept secret from the beginning. One that will change the galaxy forever.

    Goofy

    What had started out as an interesting story quickly became absurd. Two different societies are in conflict and neither is worth saving. The ending is a confused muddle of hedonism and beastiality.

    OK adventure story

    The "science" in this novel isn't accurate enough to qualify it as sifi, IMO. Basic physics is bent to fit a so-so plot. Not impressive.

    Interesting and scary new world! Great read!!

    Jeena Garza is a young woman, a soldier, and an escaped prisoner of a galactic war but is she in a better place? Among the almost familiar animal life on Ararat, Jeena finds a friend and companion. She builds a temporary home and waits--for what? Rescue or recapture? Jeena's unaffected confidence and courage combine with the survival abilities learned, and her own natural instincts to make her someone to be dealt with, as the other 'settlers' on the distant planet discover. R. J. Leahy has succeeded in building an imaginative alternate world that I would like to visit. You will too, but I'm taking a weapon, Jeena Garaza and Jeena's new friend, Samson. This is one of those novels that will haunt you for years--maybe forever. Review by Wanda C. Keesey
