The third installment of "Dinosoars in Space!", This time with 100% more psychobabble. This series started out strong. But, then it brought psychotherapy into things. This was used as a plot device to learn something important about why dinosaurs in this story are the way they are, but I found it annoying. I enjoyed Novato's story - I'd like to see more of it. I also think the ending was very nicely done, although I found the computer to be a bit.... creepy. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0765309726, Paperback)

In Far-Seer and Fossil Hunter, we met the Quintaglios, a race of intelligent dinosaurs from Earth and learned of the threat to their very existence. Now they must quickly advance from a culture equivalent to our Renaissance to the point where they can leave their planet.
While the Quintaglios rush to develop space travel, the discovery of a second species of intelligent dinosaur rocks their most fundamental beliefs. Meanwhile, blind Afsan -- the dinosaurian Galileo -- undergoes the newfangled treatment of psychoanalysis, throwing everything he thought he knew about his violent people into a startling new light.
