3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad Aug. 10 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Let me start by saying that I enjoyed reading this book and have enjoyed reading the series; however, I wouldn't say it was one of the best in the series. It follows a predictable storyline that serves to fill several hours of time but isn't particularily mindblowing. I will probably buy the next book in the series and be entertained if not bettered having spent my time reading it. Oh well.
Much praise for Turning Point and Wheel of Time. They were the best written books in the series.
If you want to read a really good series, check out the Dune Series by Frank Herbert. It will change the way you think about science fiction.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not orignal June 29 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Once again Lisanne Norman regales us with another in the Sholan Allance Series.
Sadly, the cupboard is bare. We are presented with the usual characters based around Ms Norman`s increasingly predictable plots of " Girl meets furry alien, girl has sex & offspring with furry alien" etc etc.
This volume carries that formular onto an increasing silly series of sexual escapades that cheapen what started out as a juvenile SF series.
A first read raises the suspicion that this tale is derivative. From the title, an obvious quote from the TV show Babylon 5, to the feline aliens ( C.J Cherryh did it first ) it soon becomes clear that there is there is little originality here...
In Ms Norman`s world all alien names seem to be begin with a letter K ( Does this woman not have an alphabet ? )
After thousands of references to " Kusac", "Kezule" & " Kaid" I got tired. I thought it was, well, Krap.

5.0 out of 5 stars Between Darkness and Light June 18 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If you like character interaction, this book is for you. If you're into large calibre problem solving, this book may not be. SciFi shoot-em-ups are OK as far as they go, but if I've always liked real characters acting and reacting in real ways to the problems presented them. As with many book series, it's best to start with the first book, Turning Point, and read them in order.
In Between the Darkness and the Light, Kusac, a 'feline-like' sholan and the main protagonist, has to cope with the loss of his special telepathic link to Carrie, a human, as well as hide the fact that the sholan kit he's trying to rescue from the Valtegan General, Kezule, is his son. And then there's the rotten apple in the sholan contingency. What are his plans? And why is Kusac so attracted to General Kezule's wife? Especially since he doesn't want to be! Then there's the Telaxaudin who's keeping a real close eye on Kusac. What's his hidden agenda? Things have a real potential for getting out of hand and the results could spell disaster for Sholans and Valtegans alike.
I like how author Lisanne Norman plays characters off of each other in ways that keep the tension high and the reader wondering when the other truckload of shoes is going to drop. For me, it made the book hard to put down and resulted in several sleepless nights.
