Title: In Pursuit of Cheese: A Cat and CoDee Tale
Author: Cherime MacFarlane
Cat and CoDee have reached a cross road.
Clean, Wholesome read.
Cat and CoDee are ready to make modifications to their ship. The shipyard on Greenhouse II is their destination. They find the Bond and one other ship are the only ones queuing up. A huge planet-wide disaster has every available trader hauling materials to the stricken world under contract to the Mercenary’s Union or the Life Foundation.
Greenhouse II was one world where Cat could be herself. But the official of the Life Foundation stranded on Greenhouse II is a telepath. He senses CoDee and Cat are different. They are trying to avoid the man, but another menace lurks on the warm jungle planet, one neither of them sense as they struggle to communicate without using their bond.
Cat’s obsession with cheese may prove her undoing. The planet Caleta which issued a call for help has two major exports: a fantastic cheese and wine.
When it comes time for Cat and CoDee to fix their ship, they find themselves on a planet known as Greenhouse II. What at first they think will be a quick in and out turns into much more when a planet called Caleta sends a call for help.
I liked Cat. She was spunky and spontaneous. A good counterbalance to CoDee’s personality. Together, they had a particularly interesting relationship that added to the enjoyability of the story.
Short but powerful. This was a fun little sci-fi novella.
