The writing is artistry, with a clear eye toward ordinary human thoughts and actions, and the distinction between them and those of beings for whom the human condition is but a vague memory. The reader captures this perfectly.

"Guest" is a clever tale about a meeting of two worlds. It explores the examination of self, which occurs when one's intended isolation is intruded upon by another in need, and brings into question the very concept of "the other." Stoops weaves us a tale of balancing the familiar with the very unexpected and, ultimately, the length to which the kind-hearted will go when compassion clearly must be put ahead of all else.

Our protagonist receives an unconventional guest, whom she feels a need to keep secret, while suspecting her neighbor shares the same situation. Though a communication gap is slowly closed, her guest never quite gets some of the social complications of the situation. The story ends happily, and with an interesting twist.

I highly recommend this book for readers from young adult to adult.

Carol Berg wends a tail of love and hatred, beauty and ugliness, triumph and defeat, and leads us through it concisely and clearly.

This, and the rest of the Avonar series, is a must-read for fans of the Fantasy genre.

This is a seamless continuation of the ongoining and endearing life story of Mercedes Thompson. Patricia Briggs does her homework regarding the cultural perspectives of her characters, presents very clear and coherent cultures and world views for her non-humans and delivers a consistent world of terror, joy, sorrow and love.
