The Friday 56:  (from page 56)  But she went veiled, and disconsolate, and brooded.  Marak shared a tent with her and never had seen her face.

Comment:  Great story and great science fiction.  I love this author!


  1. I keep meaning to read something by this author. I once had a writing tutor who brought a copy of 'The Pride of Chanur' into class and told us just how good the writing was in it! But as I'm not a huge adult sci-fi/fantasy person, I keep thinking 'next year'. I like the extracts here though!

  2. I have read books by this author but not this book. I remember enjoying them but haven't read anything by the author for years. My book this week is Unholy Blue by Darby Kaye. Happy reading!

  3. Very intriguing. I have a book by this author but haven't read it yet.

    Thanks for stopping by my post:)

  4. This sounds pretty interesting! I have never heard of the author before, so I'll have to see what's on Goodreads. :-)

  5. Sounds quite mysterious! I hope you liked it :) x

  6. Not sure if it's my taste but hope you love it! Happy Sunday!

  7. have not heard of this author before but this seems like it will be interesting.. thank you
