Publisher's Summary

Steven Dalt should have died in that cave on the planet Kwashi. After all, as the natives say, of 1,000 people attacked by the cave-dwelling alaret, 999 will die. Dalt survives, but not without personal cost: He has picked up a passenger - an alien intelligence transferred itself from the alaret to take up residence in his brain. Steven Dalt will never be alone again. 

But Pard, as Dalt names the alien who shares his life, doesn’t believe in freeloading. He pays his rent by using cellular-level consciousness to maintain Dalt’s body in perfect health - no disease, no aging. And now Dalt appreciates the full meaning of the Kwashi natives’s saying: Of 1,000 struck down by an alaret, 999 will die. But the 1,000th will not die...ever.

Spanning 1,200 years, Healer follows Dalt and Pard through the centuries as they become known as the Healer, an enigmatic figure with the power to cure diseases of the mind. And when a wave of interstellar slaughter threatens the civilizations of the LaNague Federation, only the Healer has the resources to face the onrushing doom.

A great performance of a favorite book

This has been a favorite story to read since I was gifted an edition in high school.. a few years after it's release. I have read it at least a few times a year since.

I am now able to enjoy the book in audio format.

Greg Tremblay did an awesome job in bringing outside voices to the characters and story. I look forward to hearing this again and again.
