Not the best of books I've read. I really like Hugh, Jan and Rekshellet, and the basic story had it's points. But, for most of the book, every single chapter is just another crisis to be dealt with. After awhile it gets tiring. The little sidestory about Hugh and Jan's theories on the abilities of other races sort of took over the latter chapters of the book. Also, the last couple of chapters were rather anti-climatic. Overall I'd give it two and a half stars. The paperback was well formatted and easy to read with no obvious spelling or grammar errors. After twenty years sitting on my shelf it was still in good shape and not coming apart at all.
