... than drowning it. A fascinating tale of the Commonwealth from a different angle and a very different place. This is a well crafted, almost genteel waltz through the birthing pangs of a new-hatched member of the Commonwealth delightfully complicated by the presence of three resident intelligent species. This is not to say there is no action, or that all the characters are polite and refined. Quite the contrary; there is sufficient action and assorted mayhem to satisfy all but the most bloodthirsty of fans of Foster's Commonwealth tales.
The midwife of this process - the representative of the Commonwealth - has more on their hands than just staying dry, for there are swome verydamp and unhappy Aan to deal with, as well as a couple of (male) prima donnas.
All in all, well worth reading at least once.
PS: To anyone who remembers the Spellsinger series: watch out for the mushroom.

The Humanx saga is full of rich, well-written, unique settings and clever, imaginative plots. This is no exception and it's a cracking read, but by no means the best book in the series.
