Most Helpful Customer Reviews
A delightful sequel to Otters in Space! The author deftly develops the characters further, including details relevant to the species of each one. Poor lovable Trudith – as a dog she struggles to understand the nuances of communication when she’s hanging out with her feline friends. At times I was focused on getting better acquainted with a character when the plot would develop a new twist, and I could hardly read fast enough to find out how this new challenge would be resolved. A solar system thriller unlike any other!
