Menolly and her society are smoothly realized, but McCaffrey's setting and framework suggest a weightier Peru that the center cannot hold.

Still it was a pleasure to read, the people were well drawn and the world created by Anne McCaffrey is very clever...Basically it is a very pleasant book, which manages to be gripping without many of the genre standard situations.
