This had a good blurb from Roger Zelazny so I read it. It wasn't bad, kind of a space opera. I have the second book, but I'm not in a rush to read it.

It is the story of a boy who is raised among aliens at the hunter-gatherer level going on a quest to find his father among the stars. His mother is dying & he naively sets out searching for his father to cure her. He winds up in the middle of nasty politics, old hatreds & more. It's not a super new idea, but it was done pretty well. ( )

SF, good, but not great--nice build up but weak finish
