Publisher's Summary

Kris Bjornsen has come a long way since alien slave ships scooped her up in Denver with thousands of others. Dropped off on an apparently uninhabited world with the rest, she has fallen in love with Zainal, a renegade Catteni, and has made a comfortable life for herself and her new family. But she feels a soldier's duty to escape Botany and rejoin the struggle for freedom.

As the Eosi overlords continue to drop captives on Botany, the colonists learn that there are freedom fighters on every captured world, and Earth is full of pockets of resistance. There are even rebels among the warlike Catteni. Now the colonists have the technology they need to go back to war with the deadly Eosi - with a surprise strike at the enslaved planet Earth itself!

What the Critics Say

"McCaffrey continues to amaze with her ability to create disparate, well-realized worlds and to portray believable humans, convincing aliens of varied sorts, and credible interactions between them all. A very satisfying tale." (Booklist)
"McCaffrey provides a useful plot recap, and this entry - somewhat more conclusive than its predecessors - offers proven allures for series fans." (Kirkus Reviews)

    "Interesting and Different"
    Where does Freedom's Challenge rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I particularly like Anne McCaffrey books and this is as good as her Pern series. I think she could have gone on and added to this series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Freedom's Challenge?

    None in particular


    What does Susie Breck and Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Probably nothing special


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    N?A

    "Alien species dropped on a Planet become community"

    Against great technology, and overwhelming strength of their adversaries, several Alien species including Humans have been dropped on a Planet full of dangers.They ban together into a community for their own safety. But now that they have a modicum of comfort etched out in this new world, what is the next step?
    Who is the real enemy and who else occupies their new "home"?
    Susie Breck and Dick Hill make for a comprehensive cast.

    "Still a great Author"

    I enjoy Anne McCaffrey and having the books available on audio enhances the experience, though I do tend to go for books I have read before. The Freedom is among my favorites. I did prefer Susie Breck alone or combined with Dick Hill to Dick Hill alone.

    "2D"

    I liked Anne McCaffrey when I was a child. I read all the dragon books. I decided to listen to these books because of those fond memories. I was disappointed. The character development is sophomoric and without good wit. The plot had holes and lacked the technical details that make Science fiction so rich and compelling.
