It was many years agothathumans came and settled the world of Newholme. In these early days, the first wave of pioneers struggled to make a home on the harsh, alien planet. As others from Earth came, the humans learned to bend Newholme to their will, to set down roots and raise up cities and farms and a grand temple to their goddess. But now strange things are happening. The very ground is shaking with volcanic eruptions, and all of Newholme is in peril. And so it is that the great Great Questioner, official arbiter of the Council of Worlds, decides to pay a visit to the isolat ed planet to find out what is causing the increasingly violent disturbances. For rumors have long swirled throughout the Council about what really happened to the first settlers from Earth all those years ago-whispers about a terrible secret that lies buried deep within Newholme's past. It is on Newholme that the Questionerwill meet Mouche, a beautiful youth of uncommon cleverness and spirit. It will fall to Mouche to discover and embrace that which makes him unique among humans. For Newholme's past is not dead, not completely. And the survival of an entire world depends upon Mouche appeasing something dark and terrible that's coiled within...and in his total surrender to the mysterious, ecstatic revelry that results when the six moons join.… (más)

I'm not always a fan of Sheri Tepper's sometimes heavy-handed fiction, but I must admit that she never fails to make me go "awhaaaaaaaat?"

Reading it while feverish and sick is also a wild experience.

A great treatise on the different ways societies have dealt with the power balance of men and women. A wide variety of interesting characters. Creative aliens.

Some favorite quotations:

"...so long as you go on chewing yesterday's pains, you cannot eat today's pleasures...!"

"Our duty, as living things, [is] to be sure that pain is not our whole story, for we can choose to be otherwise...we can choose to dance."

Tepper created a really interesting world in Newholme, colonized by humans. The culture of Newholme is one where women have all the power, and I found reading it right now to be very interesting. Men have to be veiled, otherwise women might be tempted and corrupted by the sight of a male face. The planet has been going through a series of ever more violent volcanic eruptions, and for this reason mainly, the Questioner, from the Council of Worlds, has decided to visit the planet. Recommended! ( )

20 years ago something in this book really annoyed me. I can't even imagine what it was now. Instead I feel this is [[Sheri Tepper]]'s most mature work, deliberate, sly, full of great 1 liners sprinkled into lessons and conversations. It is mythic fantasy dressed up in SF rig, as a quite motley cast is assembled over years in a quest to save the world. Tepper's brutal clubs and alien interventions are used more subtly and rather charmingly. ( )

" 'What matters is how far we go? his scaly friend replied. 'There is another shore, you know, upon the other side.... Then turn not pale, beloved snail, but come and join the dance. Will you, won't you, will you, won't you, will you join the dance?"
