Discovered these books in the early 90 s, and immediately fell in love I mean, a large cat that could be ridden like a horse What a neat idea I wasn t, at that time, thrilled with 1st person POV, but as I voraciously read each book, I didn t even notice, I was so caught up in Keesha and Rikardon s world I don t know that there is anything about the series that I don t like I re read this series every few years, and get swept up and absorbed into it everytime So good Read this sometime back in 1986 and then forgot all about it Forgot the authors names, the title, even the major plot points Sadly, I gave away hundreds of 1980s fantasy in the 1990s when I moved house a lot SoI m going to get me a copy of this and re read it Wonder how my 52 year old self will rate the book compared to my 19 year old self How would you feel if you were suddenly asked to live someone else s life A life where you are being saught by the police, organized crime and an unwanted prospective bride In The Gandalara Cycle, the old and dying Ricardo Carillo finds himself in the body of a young man, in an unfamiliar world, with a large lump on his head and a freakishly large cat stalking him.There are seven books in this series and each of them is a good read I particularly like the first novel because Ricardo is seei How would you feel if you were suddenly asked to live someone else s life A life where you are being saught by the police, organized crime and an unwanted prospective bride In The Gandalara Cycle, the old and dying Ricardo Carillo finds himself in the body of a young man, in an unfamiliar world, with a large lump on his head and a freakishly large cat stalking him.There are seven books in this series and each of them is a good read I particularly like the first novel because Ricardo is seeing everything with fresh eyes His unique way of dealing with things prompts some interesting reactions from all those who think they know him In a sense, many believe the problems of other people are minor, in comparison to their own This story allows us to explore that theory Can a complete stranger untangle a young man s life All seven novels are tied to a logical plot line but this structure is revealed a small piece at a time In this way, the narrative is full of enough suspense and action to encourage some very quick reading There is occasional misdirection so that we have to turn our personal theories upside down, several times It s good value, because each time that happens, you are forced to review what has already happened in a new light.The society depicted is not overly different to reality, although the inclusion of a small minority, view spoiler who possess extrasensory gifts hide spoiler , is pivotal This concept has been well explored elsewhere but the author uses the subtle variations well, drawing the possibilities into new and interesting directions, both political and metaphysical These books should interest those who enjoy traditional science fiction as well as fantasy buffs Although often out of print, I recommend you try to find secondhand copies somewhere I read these books when they first came out Fortunately when I reached the stage of buying book 4, books 4, 5 6 had been amalgamated into one omnibus So I got all of them at once This meant continuous reading of three marvellous books without a break My favourite kind of reading.I must say all the books were top notch and I have reread them several times but not since the mid 2000s, when they were packed away for our move to Tasmania.So now I am ready to unpack, yea another reread and the I read these books when they first came out Fortunately when I reached the stage of buying book 4, books 4, 5 6 had been amalgamated into one omnibus So I got all of them at once This meant continuous reading of three marvellous books without a break My favourite kind of reading.I must say all the books were top notch and I have reread them several times but not since the mid 2000s, when they were packed away for our move to Tasmania.So now I am ready to unpack, yea another reread and the intense excitement is to happen again Read this series in high school Fun to re read an old favorite Not as good as I remembered it though.
