A powerful being fights for his life within the body of a humble, earthbound puppy.

Sirius, immortal Lord of the Dog Star and infamous for his quick temper, cannot believe it when he is falsely accused of murder and banished to Earth. There he is reborn into the body of a puppy and learns that he has the life-span of that creature to recover the missing murder weapon. If he fails, he will die.

He is adopted by Kathleen, who has no idea that her beloved Leo' is anything more than an abandonded stray. She is a loving owner, but an unwanted guest in a family who mostly resent her presence.

Sirius soon learns that he has enemies amongst the humans as well as amongst the unearthly beings who sentenced him. How on earth can he clear his name without his special powers?

I finished reading this sitting in the back garden, and a strange but friendly dog came up to the gate to say hello. Because this is my life, apparently . . .

Read this when I was a teen. So imaginative and entertaining by a master author, Diana Wynne Jones.

Wonderfully imagined from a dog's point of view and especially enjoyable if you've ever had a dog. The way my cats act, it's not hard to believe that a fiery Luminary could inhabit one of them. Good thing a Zoi is out of their reach...

The trouble with humans is that it’s all or nothing with them. They seem to think anything impossible could happen in the old days. And just because these are new days, they tell you none of it is true.

Sirius had to wait till she had finished and curled up again. Then she said, "The trouble with humans is that it's all or nothing with them. They seem to think anything impossible could happen in the old days. And just because these are new days, they tell you none of it is true. Now I'm going to sleep."
