At twenty, Lady Caissa's old enough to contract a body-heir of her own, but going along with her father's choice is so far beyond distasteful, one meeting sends her fleeing for the hills - literally. When she runs out of fuel near an interdicted area she stumbles on far more than she bargained for. What exactly are the coelura? What is her father hiding? And most importantly, who is Murell?This has always felt to me like a story missing many of the important bits and just begging for expansion. Still, a quick, enjoyable read.

This is one of Anne McCaffrey's least well done stories, but at that I have to say that I've enjoyed it enough to read more than once. One strange aspect is that there is not quite enough of this to make a full book, so they've put rather intriguing pictures into the text.

I loved this book. It was short and to the point. Everything in the book was explained well and kept you intrested. There should be a sequel explainging what happends to her.

I have read most of her other books and this just didn't cut it. It was short so maybe she didn't ahve time to develop the characters as well as usual. Would like to see a second book exploring the beginnings of who/what the Coelura really are.
