This novel shocked me and swept me off my feet. Not only is it more realistic form of telepathy (the animals are not the heroes and Cherryh does not pretend to underline that) but the world explodes in your eyes, ears, your nose and your well being.
Cherryh's writing is unmatched as far as her style. She really plays with the words and phrases in such a way that she makes you feel everything around you.
In this book you get Cherryh's writing, great ecology, genuine charactes,impeccable plot, and a heck of a mystery with a twist.
This book adds an almost gothic horror feel to the process as well. The Tarmin village scenes were incredible--really sent a chill up my back. I hope Cherryh decides to do a third installment some day--Finisterre is a great addition to her worlds.
