About the Book
This entire story is unsettling for the characters. Mark, now one of two acolytes (librarians for the Travelers' journals) is aghast to find that Andy Mitchell, the school bully, is a scientific "idiot savante". Courtney Chetwynde, Mark's partner acolyte and one of Bobby's romantic interests, finds that she is no longer the phenomenal athlete of her earlier years. Bobby discovers a society wherein humans do only menial work, dominated and even enslaved by biped felines called Klee.
