Golden Witchbreed

Golden Witchbreed (Signet) - Mary Gentle

Rating based on how much I adored this book as a young teenager. 

Having just run across it again here on goodreads, I'm going to keep an eye out for a copy to re-read, and see if it's as good as I remember. And bonus! I just found out there's a sequel I never knew about either, so two for the price of one.
