Already, long-range telescopes have identified a number of habitable planets orbiting other stars. Now it's just a question of getting there.
But there are those who, for selfish motives of their own, want Padrugoi and the other outposts to fail - people who will stop at nothing to maintain their power or to avenge its loss. Standing in their way are the Talented, men and women gifted with extraordinary mental powers that have made them as feared as they are respected - and utterly indispensable to the colonization effort.
There is Peter Reidinger, a teenage paraplegic who is the strongest telekinetic ever, his mind capable of teleporting objects and people thousands of miles in the blink of an eye. Yet all his power cannot repair his damaged spine or allow him to feel the gentle touch of a loved one. There is also Rhyssa Owne, the powerful telepath and mother hen to Peter and the rest of her "children" - and a fierce, unrelenting fighter against the prejudice that would deny the Talented the right to lead happy and productive lives. And Amariyah, an orphan girl who loves two things in the world above all others: gardening and Peter Reidinger. And woe to anyone who harms either one of them - for the young girl's talent may prove to be the most amazing of all.
Now, as sabotage and attempted murder strike the Station, it's up to the Talented to save the day. Only, who's going to save the Talented?

Where is book 1 and 2? The talent series has always been one of my favorites, I'd like to get the other books on Audio.
A 50-something who loves sci-fi, cozy mysteries, thrillers, an occasional romance, and any genre if it is a good story. And especially if it makes me laugh! No vampires or zombies though - these are NOT sci-fi!
If I had not already read this and its predecessors in print previously, I would have been totally lost. To Ride Pegasus and Pegasus in Flight are not available on Audible yet, and for a new listener, this book will be confusing. It does not stand alone.
Other than that, it is classic McCaffrey! The good guys are very good and the bad guys are awful! This series is prequel to the Tower series. The narration is excellent. Hopefully the other two books will be available soon.
Great Science fiction writing. Excellent narration. It made me look forward to the long commute in the car.
I loved this audiobook. It follows the printed book exactly! I cannont read my books while I am driving or at work, but I can certainly listen. I only with the other books in the "Talents" series were available for download.
if you like the other two books in the series, you will love the last installment. As always, Anne McCaffrey does an excellent job of "putting you right in the story" good read!
This however, Is the third in the series. The first book "To Ride Pegasus" is only available abridged and the second not at all.... the story stands by itself, but having read the books , it is better with all of them
I have read and then listened to this series many times. Great to return to.
