    I had been hoping to read something by Andre Norton for a while nowtook me a while to figure out that this wasn t really by Andre Norton, but rather done using the Beast Master setting I guess I should go find the original and read that instead The writing waslacking The ideas in it all would have made an all right story except the weird possibly underage love thing going on , but the writing just didn t do what it needed to Switching perspectives was a constant issue, and toward the I had been hoping to read something by Andre Norton for a while nowtook me a while to figure out that this wasn t really by Andre Norton, but rather done using the Beast Master setting I guess I should go find the original and read that instead The writing waslacking The ideas in it all would have made an all right story except the weird possibly underage love thing going on , but the writing just didn t do what it needed to Switching perspectives was a constant issue, and toward the end time got all mixed up in places and I could barely understand what was going on Might have beenfun had I read the other Beast Master books first, but I m unsure on that

    This must have been some book in the middle of a series I think it s also the first book by Andre Norton that I ve read.In it a girl was owned by a bad guy Some kind of war was happening I assume the rest of the series focused on that, this feltlike a side story , and the owner of the space ship and owner of the girl was part of the Thieves Guild Apparently the Thieves Guild, as the name implies, were bad guys Having a Thieves Guild set in space in the future was really jarring, it This must have been some book in the middle of a series I think it s also the first book by Andre Norton that I ve read.In it a girl was owned by a bad guy Some kind of war was happening I assume the rest of the series focused on that, this feltlike a side story , and the owner of the space ship and owner of the girl was part of the Thieves Guild Apparently the Thieves Guild, as the name implies, were bad guys Having a Thieves Guild set in space in the future was really jarring, it feelslike an old DD idea than something that would exist in the time of space travel.The writing technical was okay Not bad, not good I didn t really buy the characters as real people Butdamning, I didn t buy the cat as a real animal I gave up at that point 10%

    This is the fourth title in Andre Norton s Beast Master series The first two The Beast Master and Lord of Thunder were written by Norton in 1959 and 1962 Three sequels were published as collaborations in the 2000s The cover says by two authors, but it was obvious within a couple of chapters of this one that the only input by Norton herself was a story outline, if that It got onlyobvious as the book went on, because McConchie a has not written a convincing pastiche of Norton s writin This is the fourth title in Andre Norton s Beast Master series The first two The Beast Master and Lord of Thunder were written by Norton in 1959 and 1962 Three sequels were published as collaborations in the 2000s The cover says by two authors, but it was obvious within a couple of chapters of this one that the only input by Norton herself was a story outline, if that It got onlyobvious as the book went on, because McConchie a has not written a convincing pastiche of Norton s writing style, b is not as good a writer McConchie s own website states that all three of the collaborations were written solely by McConchie from brief collaboratively written outlines return return I don t have a problem with high quality sharecropped novels after all, I like good fanfic, and I m perfectly happy to pay for pro published fanfic if it s good enough However, for me this example isn t good enough to buy, although it s worth checking out from the library if you want to readabout the beast masters A particular irritation for me was that McConchie is addicted to head hopping, and is not good enough to make it transparent This is not just using an omniscient point of view this is dropping into a different character s head for a paragraph or two, sometimes in mid paragraph, in order to provide information that the main character for that chapter can t know By contrast, Norton had very tightly controlled point of view and as a result was the author who got me thinking at a young age about how different POVs work, and how it can be used to give different effects Thus the head hopping had a fingernails down blackboard effect on me, although other readers might not be irritated by it return return The primary focus of this book is Laris, a young woman who accepted bonded servant status to a circus owner to escape a refugee camp Laris has a valuable talent with animals, and is used both in the ring acts, and behind the scenes to look after the animals In her time with the circus, she s realised that it has ties to the Thieves Guild and the latest scheme is the abduction of beast master s animals When the circus heads to Arzor, she s used in a plot to acquire Hosteen Storm s animals Laris s sympathy is with Storm and his family, but Laris has a beast companion of her own to protect There s enough backstory dropped in that you could read this as a standalone, although I d really have to suggest you go and get the original pair of books instead return return The story s enjoyable and fits in well with Norton s world, even if I didn t like some of the writing Would I read the other two novels McConchie wrote using Norton s setting and characters Yes, but going by this one I wouldn t go to any great trouble or expense to acquire them, and I probably wouldn t keep them once I d read them

    I read this in 2009 I didn t know that it was the fourth book in a series that had its first installment published 50 years before I was just looking for some sci fi novel to read This one didn t particularly interest me but I decided to just read it It was alright, I guess I didn t really like the authors writing styles because I just thought some descriptions were too vague, like the animals and the airships and all Maybe I would have understood it better if I actually read the three bo I read this in 2009 I didn t know that it was the fourth book in a series that had its first installment published 50 years before I was just looking for some sci fi novel to read This one didn t particularly interest me but I decided to just read it It was alright, I guess I didn t really like the authors writing styles because I just thought some descriptions were too vague, like the animals and the airships and all Maybe I would have understood it better if I actually read the three books that preceded it first Yeah, maybe they describe everything better in those books But I didn t like the story much either It just seemed a bit insipid because, well I don t know, its about people who can communicate telepathically with animals It just didn t seem very creative to me I like sci fi, like H.G Wells s The Time Machine and The Island of Doctor Moreau, but this didn t seem sci fi ish enough I probably should have read the other books first I might then have liked this onebut I don t feel like reading them now Nor do I feel like reading the next book in the series But maybe the series just wasn t for my age group

    It s the fourth book in a series, so I expect a great deal of my confusion about people and worlds was due to that rather than a deliberate omission This reads well enough on its own, although the story does toss around a LOT of names and places expecting you to already know them The setting tended to be very vague and generic Almost nothing was described well enough to really imagine, which was rather upsetting Also, although I understood the main character s dilemma, I expected her to do m It s the fourth book in a series, so I expect a great deal of my confusion about people and worlds was due to that rather than a deliberate omission This reads well enough on its own, although the story does toss around a LOT of names and places expecting you to already know them The setting tended to be very vague and generic Almost nothing was described well enough to really imagine, which was rather upsetting Also, although I understood the main character s dilemma, I expected her to doin the end, it felt like she got everything just by passing along a few hints and sitting there The people who took her in felt pretty flat they were generic good guys with a rather standard melodramatic past and seemingly no problems before she stepped into their lives It was interesting enough that I ll probably look for the earlier books in the series, but I m not willing to recommend it as a stand alone Neutral
