Laris is a young orphaned ex-refugee gifted with the beast master ability allowing her to communicate with animals. Her closest companion is a remarkably intelligent and mysterious cat-like creature named Prauo, whose origin is shrouded in mystery. Laris, having made a home for herself with the Quades, a family of Arzor ranchers, also has become friends with beast masters Tani and Hosteen Storm, who help her develop her beast master skills.

When Laris inherits a spaceship from a distant relative, she realizes that she might now fulfill her dream of finding Prauo's home planet. But it won't be easy, and she is relieved when she is able to convince her new extended family to embark with her on a journey into the unknown depths of space.

What Laris and her friends find in space, however, tests their beast master abilities and threatens their lives. Prauo's homeworld is beset by dangers the intrepid travelers could not have anticipated. It will take all of their talents and experience to get back to Arzor alive.

I have read the first two Beast Master’s books and I like the continuing adventures. This is more a teenager than an adult book.

Beast Maker’s Quest --- by Andre Norton and Lyn McConchie. Undoubtedly, Andre Norton frequently writes sc-fi that would have to labelled as adolescent and usually this doesn’t matter to those of us Norton fans who appreciate what she has to say and how she says it. But in this case thagt just isn’t so. There a whole lot too much gushy dialog about what their gonna’ do and not enough action to satisfy those of us who want to at least see the plot moved along. It doesn’t happen very often, but here’s one book that I simply could put down .

How Laris (a human girl) and Prauo (a cat like creature) go on a quest to find his home world. Laris is an orphaned teen, impulsive, and anxious not to be parted from her friend whom she picked up outside a space port years ago, when he was a kitten. Prauo shares telepathy with his human partner, and is considered of an intelligent race. Storm, his wife Tani and Logan Quade have the Terran Patrol’s blessing to go looking among the star lanes with just some hints of where Prauo may come from.
