From the team of Anne McCaffrey (author of the Dragonriders of Pern series) and Nebula Award-winning author Elizabeth Ann Scarborough comes a thrilling new science-fiction tale featuring telepathic cats that are invaluable to the spacefarers who own them.

Thomas's Duchess - or Chessie, to those who love and depend on her services - is no ordinary cat. She's a purebred Barque Cat, trained to patrol the ship on which she serves, sniffing out oxygen leaks and spotting other problems. But when a corrupt government announces it has found an epidemic that requires the impounding and possible destruction of animals across the galaxy - Barque Cats included - two young people, a kitten, and a mysterious, powerful cat with a hidden agenda, are all that stand between the galaxy's animals and total destruction.

    " Oh, what a disappointment! I will chalk it up to having read too much Carol Goodman lately and not being open to the shift in genres. Definitely lost interest when the character of Pshaw-Ra was introduced and thumbed through the remainder. I hate giving up on a book, but I hate having to plod through one even more. Perhaps if it had been catalogued as a young adult novel, it might have made more sense. "

    " Loved the idea of the role that cats played in this society. Not sure I'm really a sci fi kind of gal. "

    " I enjoy this book, its was a fun way to look at cats and how they can help their shipmates. It show what folks well do for their cats, that help keep them safe. One of the co-writers, send me a cd-verson of this book. "

    " This was pretty cute. It almost seemed more like fanfic than a full novel, though. Obviously something they wrote just for fun. "
