The main character in the story is a hrinnti that was brought up by a human after accidentally being brought to earth. This provides a bridge between the alien view point of the hrinn and the human point of view. The story follows the attempts to set up a squad composed of both hrinn and humans, and the inevitable difficulties caused by the different cultures.
I quite liked this, I tend to like books which show the point of view of aliens. But it wasn't a 'wow, I wanna read more of this' type book, I'll probably read more by this author if I come across it in the library, but I'll not search it out.
