Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0446604240, Mass Market Paperback)The sequel to Rider at the Gate continues as a seamless narrative on the unrivaled partnership forged between human colonists stranded on a planet whose only native life forms are linked by telepathy, and the native nighthorses, who fiercely guard the humans against the planet's mind-clouding predators. The hero of this story is Danny Fisher, a young rider whose will is tested through fateful confrontations with an older rider named Guil Stewart and a miscreant horse, whose incongruous telepathic sendings drive entire villages to madness and death.

The setting is a planet whose mind-reading animals can impose their will on humans to the point of making them mad. The humans' only protection are so-called nighthorses which can block the thoughts of the other animals. The novel is the story of a nighthorse and his rider.
