3.0 out of 5 stars Changelings 20 April 2017
By Bear - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As the quest, which began in 'The Zero Stone', continues, Murdoc and Eet continue to seek the origins of that titular gem. Along the way, they face entrapment and betrayal on all sides--from the Patrol, from the Thieves' Guild, from the pirates of legendary Waystar, and even from their own companions. Finally, after many escapes in Norton's typical deus-ex-machina style, they find the target of their quest and Eet's long-hidden motivation is revealed. The treasure, of course, is not quite what Murdoc had thought, but neither is Eet, and enough loose ends are left that the adventure could have been continued.

A good, quick read and well worth it for any fan of Norton's ouvre.
5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down! 17 Mar. 2017

Andre Norton has captured me again. Following Eet and Murdoch Jern on a quest across known and uncharted and dead space keeps pulling you along. To be able to join this team in the search for what seems a Holy Grail and learning at the same moments they do, that imagining possible outcomes is just that. A guess.
This author takes you on rapid twists and turns of plot that keep you excited and reading long hours into the night.
Thank you again, Andre Norton.

If you've read Andre Norton, you know what to expect. Murdoc Jern and Eet are off for more adventures. While Eet is an alien-cat hybrid, he's more alien than cat and perhaps a standard deviation or two smarter than Murdoc. The cat and his boy make a good team, and it's an easy-reading sci-fi yarn from the early days. Still enjoyable after all these years. I loved Eet as a kid and I still enjoy him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book two of the Murdoc Jern Duology 14 Oct. 2008
By the gunner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Uncharted Stars

In book one, [[ASIN:0451451627 The Zero Stone], Murdoc Jern met up with a feline mutant cat-like creature called Eek. The two fought the Thieves Guild and struck a somewhat coerced bargain with the Space Patrol. Now they have to deal with the consequences of that.

Murdoc is also trying to rectify the master-slave relationship with Eet that developed in the previous novel. He purchases a battered old space yacht with his reward from his previous adventures and tries his hand at purchasing gems on one planet and selling them for a higher price on another. He decides to purchase Zorans on Lorgal, sell them on Rakipur to the priests of Mankspher, in order to buy the pearls of lonnex crabs. Etc. Of course his first venture is almost a complete disaster when another trader shows up and beats him to the market. Murdoc, his drug-addicted pilot, and Eet must chart a new course.

Through a series of hair-raising adventures, including the rescue of a gravely injured Zacathan archeologist, Murdoc and Eet end up on Waystar, the mysterious stronghold of the Thieves' Guild. They are taken prisoner while on the hunt for the source of the Zero Stone, and also for the archeologist's stolen artifacts.

Where better to hunt for treasure than in the great galactic storehouse of loot, and property stolen from current and long-vanished stellar Empires? Of course, Murdoc and Eet must somehow stay alive in this flamboyant and dangerous den of thieves in order to achieve their objectives.

"Uncharted Stars" takes place in the fantastically populated universe of Norton's Free Traders and Forerunners. Wandering the fabulous storerooms of Waystar with this author makes up for any traces of antiquity in her science or tough-guy jargon. Eet serves as a sort of deus ex machina whenever Murdoc gets himself into really serious trouble, and there is a satisfying surprise ending for those readers who have followed the intrepid gemologist and his mutant cat through "The Zero Stone" and its sequel.
Baen is going to publish both books together as an omnibus edition entitled Search for the Star Stonesin November, 2008. Yeah, for Baen!

Highly recommended for fans of Andre Norton and science fiction.

3.0 out of 5 stars YA Scific and Author fans only. 2 Feb. 2017
By Rotten Roger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This a very light average YA scific story. But it does not stand out in any way.
