Immerse Yourself in a New World
Khe loves her simple life on a farming commune - until she discovers that her gift for pushing the crops is a death sentence. Fleeing across the treacherous wilderness, she makes her way to the city of Chimbalay, searching for the orindles who might save her. But Chimbalay has its own dangers. The powers are there - the secret rulers who have chosen Khe to be the mother of a monstrous new race.
Neither "man in space" sci-fi nor classical fantasy, Khe deftly blends elements of both while satisfying those searching for something different. Listeners looking for solid world-building and fresh and fully realized characters will especially enjoy this book.
A trust betrayed. A transformation that changes everything.

Alien Sci-Fi/Fantasy - Great Creativity!
Amazing vision of an alien world
I found this novel to be an amazing creation. By setting the entire story on another world inhabited by an alien race, Razevich makes big demands on the reader's imagination, but for those willing to take the journey it offers substantial rewards. The story is fascinating, and the writing is full of brilliant inventions.
I loved the prologue, with the threatening beasts, and the finale, where we meet the dominating Lumani race. Apparently made of pure energy, they are a convincing evocation of truly alien beings.
Khe, with the Babbler a close second.
A fine audio performance of an extraordinary book.
