9780140311594: The Beast Master (Puffin Books)

Left homeless by the war that reduced Terra to a radioactive cinder, Hosteen Storm – Navaho commando and master of beasts – is drawn to the planet Arzor, to kill a man he has never met. On that dangerous frontier world, aliens and human colonists share the land in an uneasy truce. But something is upsetting the balance, and Storm is caught in the middle. He had thought the war was over – but was it? “Miss Norton endows this story of a homeless, revenge-driven man with her own inimitable touch. The result is a compelling and compassionate tale.” – The New York Times Book Review

About the Author:

For well over a half century, Andre Norton was one of the most popular science fiction and fantasy authors in the world. Since her first SF novels were published in the 1940s, her tales of action and adventure throughout the galaxy have drawn countless readers to science fiction. Her fantasy, including the best-selling Witch World series, has been popular with readers for decades. Andre Norton was the first woman to receive the Gandalf Grand Master of Fantasy Award, presented by the World Science Fiction Society in 1977 and the first woman to be named a Grand Master by the Science Fiction Writers of America in 1983.

From AudioFile:

Hosteen Storm, a Navajo commando, must venture to the dangerously unstable planet of Arzor to kill a man he has never met. When he arrives, however, he discovers a more pressing issue to attend to, namely that the war he thought had ended may not be over at all. Narrator Richard Brewer reads with purpose, moving through the story at a steady pace that never lets up. As Storm, Brewer is more subdued than one would expect, but his approach makes the character more personal and believable. Brewer's driving performance allows listeners to empathize with their hero's plight and identify with its urgency. L.B. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
