Only 1 left in stock (more on the way). Julie Czerneda’s novels ignite my sense of wonder, from the amazing worlds she creates, to the fully realized aliens and likeable characters. I eagerly await her next ―Kristen Britain, author of the New York Times-bestselling Green Rider series. The plot of Beholder’s Eye will strike the chords with readers familiar with the work of . Cherryh or Hal Clement, but Czerneda stamps this with her own style, proving that a story told from the viewpoint of an alien race is worth reading when properly handled.

The first book in Julie Czerneda's acclaimed Web Shifters series made the Nebula preliminary nomination list in 1998. Changing Vision continues the story of Esen, the last survivor of an alien race with the ability to assume the form of any creature. Now Esen must break her species' rule of noninterference--to keep interspecies tension from escalating intoall-out war....
  • This is a fine entry in another satisfying Czerneda series. Czerneda writes three-book sets that give you more than a stand-alone book, but not so much that the series drags. So, you get the Reunification series, this series, and so on. We enjoyed this one and are always on the lookout for more Czerneda.

  • While I liked the predecessor to this book, I found this one hard to read. On a gross level, the various pieces of a good story were there. There were interesting characters, well developed background and a well-developed plot.
    Unfortunately, this book tends to be somewhat disjointed, with what I find to be unnecessary amounts of tension in the various threads that make it up. Items that could be resolved are dragged out in excruciating detail as the various characters viewpoints don't permit the obvious resolution. Which is ok, since most problems in life aren't easily solvable, but some of the items could be left unresolved, instead of contortions being made to wrap everything up neatly, despite the fact that a neat wrap-up isn't really possible.
    The last disappointment was in the villians. I tend to find narrow-minded fanatics as villians a bit of a disservice. Creating a compelling villian that is interesting enough to be plausible while not dominating the scene is difficult in the best of times. Somehow the quality of the opposition didn't seem to rate effort the victories required. Or, didn't seem to merit the victories. Villians overcome by an obvious and silly fatal flaw just aren't good villians.
    That being said, the book is still worth reading. It's just not a book that excites me.

  • This book begins 50 years after Czerneda's fine story "Beholder's Eye" ended.
    We now find Paul Ragem and Esen-alit-Quar living as partners of the trading company "Cameron & Ki" on the fringe planet Minas XII. Their comfortable and amusing life is interrupted when Paul takes the reluctant Es on a "vacation" trip.
    We continue to meet wonderfully detailed alien cultures and to follow the amusing escapades of the hapless shape changing Es as she continues her dedication to understanding and protecting all sentient lives. The fact that Paul shares the same goals is complicated by the desire of each to protect the other from the inevitable tribulations of their complicated life together.
    I felt that this book started out slower than "Beholder's Eye" but came to no less satisfying a conclusion. In each case, Czerneda has demonstrated her considerable skill at portraying remarkably different beings and cultures in a way that makes them comfortably familiar, intriguing and exciting to us. Her plots are absorbing and her writing is eminently readable.
    I'm decidedly looking forward to the next installment of Web Shifters!

  • At the heart of this book is the relationship between Esen Alt Quar, a 500 year old shape changing being and Paul Ragem, a human male. This might make your want to put this book with the SciFi novels that are really romance novels in SciFi costumes. That would be a big mistake. Although "Changing Visions" is personality driven it is also a first class space opera full of interesting aliens, plot twists, and wonderful characters.
    Ms.Chzernda shows how immage effects the way we react to an individual by showing how various caracters, who know Esen's secret, react differently to her as she changes form. At the same time she exlores how biology influences personality as Esen's physical forms effect how she reacts to each new situation. Then there is the problems that arise from the differences in the life span of the main charactes. As the plot twists throught a series of adventures that could be labeled 'the perils of Esen' you come to realise that Paul and Esen are not suffering from unrequinted love, but a bound by much ties that are deeper and truer than that. I particularly like Paul'd "It takes a villiage..." answer to the problem, even though Esen resents his solution.
    The cliff hanger last chapter leaves not doubt that there will be more adventurs ahead for Esen and her Web. I can't wait.

  • Good book delivered promptly.

  • Most sci fi is good to read once. I read this series again and again, especially if I'm feeling sorry for myself. Czerneda catches me in her detailed world. She make me laugh at Esen's absurdities, and admire her undaunted spirit.

    Truly, a good read, all the way through.

  • I think this series is one of my favorite science fiction series ever. Es is funny, smart, nearly invincible and at the same time very vulnerable. Like most of the best books, it's character driven. Czerneda is a wonderful writer, plain and simple.

  • This book was said to be hard to find which is why it cost me at least double the cover price.
    HOWEVER! It is Czerneda so it is well worth it.
    can't wait to start reading but I am waiting for a whole day since it I will probably read to the end only stopping for restroom and food........well maybe just water. lol
