4.0 out of 5 stars Almost there, but not there just yet Nov. 26 2003
By JL
Format:Hardcover
I've read all of the Acorna novels so far, and this is one of the most interesting. Acorna lands on Nadhari's home planet after a little technical difficulty with the Condor (courtasy of RK). While there, she tries to help the holy cats that have fallen ill due to a deadly disease and ends up getting tangled in a political plot to rule the planet.
The atmosphere and description of Makahomia reminds me of Southeast Asia, blended together with a touch of Arabia/Egypt and even the Amazons. It gaves the novel an exotic feeling, a feeling that can't be found in metalic space ships, the rich and poor cities of Kezet, and the slightly Medival European styled narhii-Vhiliinyar of previous books. The plot line itself was interesting and had a nice twist to it, espically with the Makahomian religion and the morphing cat-people. The Wats and RK are probably the most comical, with their antics and "out-dated" believes. The only things i have a problem with is the villan and the ending battle. Althought the villan (as always) is an over egotistical maniac who's very cunning, he's just not willy enough to defeat the protagonist and in this novel, seems to lose his touch as the story progresses. The final battle was anticlimatic, since it happened so quickly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Is this it? Aug. 17 2003
Format:Hardcover
Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed this book, very much so. But the end irritated me. Shoudln't there be more? I don't think the authors left much space to write another book, and if you don't like everything coming to peace in the end, it was a perfect end to the series. But really, there should be another, when Aari returns, with his brother, but something needs to happen, too. But there is no space I can see open for another adventure. I did enjoy this book, with finding outNadhari's secrets, the Mulzar wanting to destroy the sacred cats, it's an enjoyable book, if maybe a slight bit slower than the other books. I was also confused on the Miw-Sher thing. OK, she was a baby. Tagoth didn't know her identity, so how on earth did she take discovering her true identity so calmly? I recommend the book, though I wish there was more detail and a chapter or two more to wrap up the loose ends.

1.0 out of 5 stars Yawn March 18 2003

I wanted to like this book being a fan of both authors. Even after the first hundred pages of nothing happening, I had hope. But, in the end it's a cute cat and unicorn girl story without any particularly interesting characters, adventure, or reason to be written.
Plot summary, Acorna, unicorn girl, is hijacked to a strange planet by her cat. Once there, she cures more cats, discovers that the apparently nice guy is really a very bad guy who wants to poison everyone because--uh, well, no good reason, he just does. But Acorna is good to go and has lots of help. In the meantime, she wishes she could find her boyfriend.
Yawn.
