5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, strange, and intelligent. Jan. 18 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I stumbled across this book in a used book store, and am very glad I picked it up. The story is a complex mix of political manipulation, religious censorship, and personal ambitions. All the characters are very complex, and have true motivations behind their actions instead of the typical "I want to save the world from evil" b.s. This book could be a bit of a chore to find. I have been browsing used book stores for years, and this is the first time I have encountered a copy. It is worth the effort to find this book, however, if you are a fan of good, unconventional,sci-fi stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read, if you can find it. Oct. 13 1998
By Joseph McCauley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This story takes place on an alien planet ruled by felinoid aliens on the verge of an industrial revolution, who less than 100 years earlier have discovered and enslaved humans. The main character, Heao, is an Academe, one who studies and uses what we consider accepted scientific methods to advance society, who often find themselves at odds with the guardians, who try to conduct their lives based on pseudo-religious beliefs.
Heao meets up with Baltsar, a merchant, and after interacting with his slaves and studying them for a time, she concludes that the slaves are more intelligent than was previously believed. Unfortunately, her findings prove to have unanticipated political consequences that cause her to be shunned by her society, even some of her closest friends, in a sort of Galilean persecution, even as she and her associates seek funds for an expedition that might shed some light on the issues. The story takes a surprising turn as the situation is played out. The book is very thought provoking in issues of slavery, and of how science and religion sometimes conflict with one another.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read, suffers from common scifi plotholes May 26 2014
By Michael - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For the most part it is an excellent interesting story if you're into the exploration of human-alien relations sub genre of scifi. Lots of problems and plot holes common to the genre, especially older scifi. Without giving away plot its mostly some annoying problems with the limitations of technology and the reactions and naivety of certain characters later in the story which can seem, in some cases, to have been explicitly ignored to further the story along a preconceived path. It can be jarring but if you aren't too concerned with minor details it wont bother you. Even if you are the story is still excellent and worth the read.
