Book description

Margil was not exactly human.
And she wasn't exactly inhuman either. She was sort of feline, but you couldn't quite call her a pussycat. She could be brilliant when she wanted to be. She could be moody. Her purr was deafening, her love-taps could bowl over an elephant and her furies were of earthquake intensity.

It was lucky that her instructor in the ideals of peaceful unity, the Earthman Endo Leduc, was liked by her. Because the things he was teaching Margil went against the principals of Margil's Bodelan home world and especially against the thoughts of her father - twice her size and many times more formidable.

And it was lucky for the inhabited galaxy that Endo was where he was - because the BODELAN WAY was rapidly undermining humanity's grip on the stars - and Margil was the key to it all.

Were a different breed. They did not need a state of euphoria to accept information from a donor's mind. They just absorbed it from everywhere at any time. they also differed in hat they were capable of synthesizing what they absorbed into meaningful wholes.

Whether such being as Unconscious Absorbers really existed outside the psych labs was unknown. If they did exist they would be exceedingly dangerous to plotters, criminals, and commercial schemers.

Endo Leduc was in the midst of the galaxy's most competitive and ambitions band of manipulators when he discovered his special talent.

A Bodelan, Margil looks like a large upright cat?although she doesn't always act like one. She's moody, brilliant, and filled with furry intensity. A human, Endo Leduc is her tutor, responsible for her acculturation?and he's got his hands full. Together they face a threat to humanity's grip on the stars. And at the center of the threat stands Margil herself.… (more)
