    "If you like to read about dolphins and enjoy sci-fi novels, look no further. This is the 13th book in the Dragonriders of Pern series and I have to say, it's one of my favorites. McCaffrey portrays the dolphins as highly intelligent and compassionate towards humans, which is true in real life as well. I could reread this novel over and over again. "

    "While the scope of this book is a bit limited, it's really good about what it's about. I learned more about Gulf orcas than I ever thought I'd have known in my life. Most of it is pretty damn interesting too. The book can get a bit dry at times, but overall it's very readable."
