Book description
On an Earth that's a colony world belonging to mostly benevolent aliens, the Aya, Spider has been a top student at the Aya school - a school designed to teach students the aliens' language, culture, and ways. She's also been involved in the Fine Hunt, a sport that has evolved from the equine pursuits of Earth's past and the new technologies introduced by the Ayans. In Fine Prey, Spider's two worlds collide.

At the Aya School, human children learn alien culture in a completely restricted environment to enable them to compete in the politics and economy of an alien-influenced Earth. The finest student of the school is the child of wealthy parents and a member of the Fine Hunt circuit -- an outgrowth of traditional horse racing where bio-engineered horses are controlled by "riders" linked to electronic interfaces. As one of the up-and-coming "riders", the student is lured into the seedier world of the Claw Hunt, and discovers what the Aya aliens have really been teaching!
