Read an Excerpt

We are aware that a human being has landed in Our berry dell. From Our smallest truffles to Our greatest Haetrist, We are annoyed and indignant. We have forbidden human beings Ourself as a home because all the weak, sniveling things do is get sick and die when they try to adjust to Our life. Every berry, bush, bird, and beast was looking forward to adopting a new, strong creature, which We thought a creature must be if it could fly the great distances between planets. Were We surprised! Humans are inorganic creatures. They fly around in enormous metal cans and eat out of tiny metal cans. Even their babies come out of cans. Disgusting. This one crawled out of its flying house-can this morning; long after Our day creatures had greeted with stretches the rosy-gold sunshine. Our tall stalk-vegetation reports that the human looks just as gray, weak, and sickly as it can be. The grass says the human ate out of one of its little cans and then threw up in the rock basin. At least it has some manners and doesn't puke on Our grass. It smells horribly stale, too, the furry creatures say. Of course it stinks, it has been cooped-up in its flying-can home. Even though this human does look distinctly female, We are of accord not to let it come among Us. We don't want any inorganic creature in Our presence. The tenderhearted moss still has not quite gotten over the trauma of seeing life growing out of a can of chemicals. The dell life is keeping a pretty strict watch on this human. The human is trying to come among Us! Get out of here you sickly wretch! Beat it, you smelly old human! Get back in your can! Go back to your own kind!

    The book tells us a story about a human girl finding herself in

    The book tells us a story about a human girl finding herself in the forest Zollocco. She goes through a lot of different endeavours trying to figure out what has happened, wondering if she will survive, what is going on on Earth and trying to remove herself from the inhumane zitam list. I really enjoyed the book, it had me almost crying at times (I was heartbroken for her losing Yartem out of a sudden like that. It looked like they would be a nice and happy couple.) There were quite a few funny moments - "They growled and hissed, etc. and made it clear they had been transported before and really didn't like it. Maybe they should eat me after all." - this part really made me laugh out loud :)
    What I liked:
    The two different narrators at the same time - Zollocco and her - it was interesting to read in that format.
    I like how at the start of the story the author showed how much better the human body feels when it eats real food instead of one from cans. The connection the body has with nature is wonderful.
    Reading the letter to Jill in the FIRST INTERMEZZO part really got me excited, it was when the book started getting better and better for me, all the possibilities of her returning to Earth and saving it!
    The other stories told like the ones from the troubadur - it was a very nice addition.
    The name of the book - I love the sound of it! :D
    I also did enjoy the fact that the purpose of the whole journey was to preserve the nature on one planet or another.
    One thing I didn't quite like was that going from place to place all the time I felt a little bit lost at some point. Also most of the chapters were too long.
    It was an interesting story and I am not sure if there is going to be a second book, but I'd like to know what happens with the Priestess and how she communicates with her niece, what happens after she joined the Realm of Circle? Did Earth survive, did she ever come back to tell her story?(if there isn't one I think the ending of this was a bit of a lackluster).
