When Raf Kurbi's Terran spaceship burst into unexplored skies of the far planet Astra and was immediately made welcome by the natives of a once-mighty metropolis, Kurbi was unaware of three vital things: One was that Astra already harbored an Earth colony--descended from refugees from the world of the previous century. Two was that these men and women were facing the greatest danger of their existence from a new outburst of the inhuman fiends who had once tyrannized Astra. Three was that the natives who were buying Kurbi's science know-how were those very fiends--and their intentions were implacably deadly for all humans, whether Earth born or Star Born.… (mais)

A war between a master race and a slave race, a small human colony in the middle of it and an innocent visitor from Earth who, of course, gets involuntarily drawn into the context. I always like Norton's protagonists, as singular characters they're reasonably detailed and multilayered, but unfortunately her "big picture" often falls flat. In this case, the portrayal of "The Others" as monolithic evil felt pretty forced, and I would've liked more indepth confrontation between Homeport and the RS10. ( )

The very first SF book I read, back in fifth grade. Evidently I liked it then.

The storytelling's probably more interesting than the story itself. The structure is two parallel story lines that come together about two thirds of the way in. There's some complexity in the characterization that I likely missed in elementary school. ( )

Golden age Sci-fi probably best experienced way back then. ( )

The prequel, Stars are Ours, is one of my all time favorite reads. I liked this one okay but it really was a disappointing followup that I would have rated higher except the story arc and races/characters did not flow well for me. Nothing really wrong I can put my finger on and as a really huge fan of the vintage Andre Norton of course I cannot hate the book. ( )

I've read this before, but not in years - not since I started tracking my reading on LT. It's a good one, less Norton-formulaic than most. The protagonist - actually, both of the protagonists - are young, but young adults, not children just growing up. Both Raf and Dalgard are pretty well established in terms of personality and pretty satisfied with their own abilities and situations. Dalgard has mental abilities and a non-human ally (but not an animal, as in so many Nortons - a sapient alien); Raf has a position on a starship (though not a very good starship), various gadgets and an understanding of machinery. The alternating chapters, as their two very different situations and positions begin to converge, are interesting. I wonder where the RS 10 went next - back to Earth, or out to another star? We're not given much info on its limitations. And there's one odd bit - at the beginning, Raf is presented as much like all his crewmates, but later on he draws apart and identifies himself as "not a veteran". Veteran of what? Can't be spaceflight. Odd. The Others are interesting, particularly when it becomes apparent that the revulsion between them and the mermen is mutual. Still, the adventure that makes up the plot of this story is pretty minor; it's the unanswered questions around the edges (the fate of the RS 10, ditto Homeport, could there be a decent Other...) that make this one worth reading, and rereading. Enjoyable. ( )
