When their youngest member is assigned to a world considered safe to explore, she is captured by the natives. To escape, she must violate the most important rule of her kind, and reveal the existence of her species to a fellow prisoner - a human being.
Now her race is in danger of extinction, for even if the human does not betray her, the Enemy who has long searched for her people may finally discover their location.

Esen-alit-Quar - An All-Time Favorite Character
The audio version is great for sharing with the whole family. We tried to recommend the book to my sons, but they never bothered to try it. When we popped it in on a family road trip, that's when they finally understood. We are all looking forward to the next opportunity for family listening so we can continue the saga.
The book is also good, though. My copy is a well worn friend.
Incomparable. But, it's a good fantasy story, for people with plenty of imagination. The intellect and morals embraced by the main character sit very well with me. The twists and turns are clever and often surprising.
Have not heard any others from Ms. Bell.
That would be a spoiler, but yes, there are more than one. Esen-alit-Quar is one whose personal values and moral choices are unwavering in the face of many difficult moments.
This story deserves to be on all the recommended reading lists. A classic, sitting proudly beside the greatest masterpieces.
