Like all powerful families, the Rowan clan has also made enemies. There are those who say the treaties with the Mrdini gave away too much - especially, that the Mrdini get more than their fair share of new living space as habitable planets are discovered - that the Hivers should have been exterminated by now, and that far too much power is concentrated in one family.
The clan has two goals to keep the peace: to help the Mrdini control population growth, so that newly discovered planets are distributed more evenly, and to put a final halt to Hiver advances. They are confident of success - if they can survive sabotage and assassination attempts aimed at destroying all they have worked for.

"Readers looking for intelligent, heroic adventure will find it here, and Rowan fans will be especially pleased at this felicitous closing of a popular SF series." (Publishers Weekly)
Her ability to take us out amongst the stars is unparalleled. The way she creates different life forms and races is outstanding. I think that any one interested in science fiction should definitly read this series
I love all Anne McCaffary books. The Talent series is rated up there with the pern books for greatness. But as far as I'm concerned there is no bad book by this author..
As always Anne McCaffry writes a good story. This book is the fifth in the series and as a paperback is enjoyable. Unfortunately they switched readers for this last book. If you have listened to all of the other books, which have the same reader, and then start this one??? It???s like jumping into a new series, it seams completely divorced from what has come before. Susan Ericksen is a fine reader for OTHER books but her style drastically differs from the rest of the books in this run and breaks this last book away from the end of the series. In short: Switched narrator. Oops!
You must read the first 4 books but this 5th is the best.
