Read full description of the books People of the Sky:"People of the Sky" was a very interesting book... in all honesty, I'm not really sure how to review it. I'll try, though.
Kesbe is a strong, realistic character. All the characters are. Their actions and reactions to events are believable. The Pai are a strong, original culture with ways both admirable and detestable, but as the story moves on you start to appreciate even the incomprehensible and, well, sci-fi-ish faces of the Pai way. As with Clare Bell's other stories, it is near impossible to fully predict what will happen later in the story. If you make a guess about anything other than the base plot, you will likely be wrong. You read something and think "Ohh, that must be referring to this." Of course, it doesn't. I was pleasantly surprised by most of the story.
Once the plot starts getting really involved, the strange things happen. They did make me feel a little bit uneasy at first. What is first perceived as a gross and rather unimaginable event leads to a rather beautiful conclusion. If I gained anything from this book that I can put to use for the rest of my life, it's that I can more easily accept what it means to be female.
I wouldn't recommend this book for anyone below high school, mostly for the content. If you can deal with movies such as Alien, you'll probably be fine. Also, you should be able to appreciate elements of exotic cultures that most might find horrifying. If you can, you will be able to appreciate this book much more. I did. :)
Read information about the authorI've been really busy with the Ratha's Creature Graphic Novel project! The idea of adapting Ratha's Creature as a graphic novel is now moving much closer to reality. Our Kickstarter is 75% funded, with 5 days left.
Tod, Dani, Ian, and Sheila have put together a real treat for Ratha fans -- a music video about how the artists are developing and visualizing Bonechewer for the Ratha graphic novel.
See it here at: http://youtu.be/CTJ_UilUX2A
To promote it, project artist Tod Wills
is doing a Livestreaming art marathon:
His info headquarters for the livestream is:

A sample page from the Graphic Novel and the promo image are in my Goodreads photos, so take a peek.
I've put more info in the blog below:
If this graphic novel takes off, I will also be further inspired to write more Ratha books!
Another good thing is happening! Imaginator Press and I are exploring the possibility of doing a Ratha's Creature graphic novel! To measure reader interest, we have a survey here, so please participate.
By filling out the survey, you'll be entered to win a $25 gift certificate from the offline or online bookstore of your choice. Help us out and perhaps win something nice to read.
Many good things have happened since my last update. The first, and best is that Sheila Ruth of Imaginator Press worked with me to get all of the Ratha books back into print. You have probably seen them on this site, in trade format, and gorgeous new covers by artist Lew Lashmit, re-copyedited (though not word of the story changed!) and lovely new interior and graphic design by 1106 Design.
The books are also available in many formats from E-Reads, Amazon, and other sites. I've set up an online bookstore on my webpage so that people can by autographed editions.
I've been publicizing the series by attending many conventions and events. Sheila and I also ran a Ratha fan art contest on the Facebook series fan page ( http://www.facebook.com/rathaseries ) and Wildfire, which was great fun and the artists enjoyed it. We also showcased about 10 artists by posting interviews and images on my upgraded webpage, http://wwww.rathascourage.com.
Even though many of these activities took me away from Goodreads, I'm glad to be back and to support Imaginator Press's Ratha's Creature giveaway.
I've also been reading lots of good books and I will be cataloging and commenting on those as well.
Wow, it has been a great Spring 2009!
From March 14 to May 9, I posted an experimental Ratha novelette on Twitter, entitled "Ratha's Island", which kept me very busy. You can find the entire story archived here:

Ratha's Courage was a finalist for the Ursa Major Awards, and is still in the running for the ForeWord Magazine's Book of the Year Award/
In January, I attended Further Confusion 09 in San Jose as a Guest of Honor and had a great time. I plan to go again to FurCon 2010.
