February Books 2) The Year of Intelligent Tigers

2) The Year of Intelligent Tigers, by Kate Orman

This had been recommended to me some time back by purplepooka, so that's the second good tip from her that I have followed up this week.

I enjoyed it. The amnesiac Eighth Doctor, with companions Fitz and Anji (who I previously encountered a few books later), is on an artistically inclined colony world where the indigenous large tiger-like fauna turn out to be more intelligent than their human neighbours had thought. Multiple narrative points of view, both human and tiger, vividly and credibly portrayed background scenery, and a very Doctor Who-ish, humanistic resolution to the conflict between the two races. Will look out for more by this author.
