Publisher's Summary

The breathtaking saga of the second generation begins!

It is difficult growing up in the shadow of heroes revered throughout the galaxy. But that is the lot of young Khorii - daughter of the legendary Acorna and her lifemate Aari - who must now follow her own destiny through a fantastic universe of wonders and perils.

On a journey, Khorii's trip is delayed when her ship encounters a derelict spacecraft floating aimlessly among the stars, its crew dead in their seats. Suddenly a planned visit by her parents has turned into a terrifying race against time as a deadly plague spreads relentlessly across the universe. Even the healing powers of the Linyaari cannot slow its horrific advance. And now Khorii, one of the few unaffected by the outbreak, must find an antidote before the scourge consumes everyone and everything in its path, including those she loves above all others.

Spend some more time with Acorna's Children.

    "High-pitched narrator, unique coming-of-age story"
    Would you try another book from Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Ann Scarborough and/or Cassandra Morris?

    Absolutely!


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator has a high-pitched voice. Clearly, it is to tell the story from the main characters young female perspective. I found it hard to follow the jumps from one characters dialogue and/or storyline to another because of the lack of variation in the narrators tone.

    "is this a kids book"

    I purchased this book thinking it was for an adult, but it seems to be written more for the kids market. I have enjoyed Ms Mccaffeys work for many years, but this is the last book of hers that I will purchase.
