This is sort of a continuation of the Pegasis series and does continue the story. The only downfall is the length of the book which if this was a movi..Show More »e would have been over in about 30 minutes, still it is a good listen. However, the reader does not seem to be that good since she cannot seem to pronounce some of the names of the places correctly even according to some of the dictionaries online or in print. If you can get over the fact that the name of the planet that Jeff comes from is spelled Deneb and not Deneeb as the reader pronounces it, she is a good reader.

I first discovered Anne McCaffrey in the early 70's. If you like Sci-Fi and you haven't discovered Anne McCaffrey, then you have to give her a try. ..Show More »I was given the begining of her "Dragonriders of Pern" series and have been hooked on her since. From what I understand, that was the second time around for new readers to Anne McCaffrey. Now with audible books, I think it is time for the third round to discover her. She creates wonderful planets, people, and storylines.
With this book, "The Rowan" series comes to an end and it is a series your really need to listen to in order to be able to follow the entire storyline and watch as her characters develope and grow. Lyon's Pride is about the third generation of talented people who help to save the entire galaxy. But it's the story of how each gets to that point that makes this well worth listening to. The only down side to this series is the narrator. I could have wished for some one else to have narrated this series, but if you can get past that and just listen to the storyline, then I think you will like this series as much as I have.
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 reade..Show More »rs 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!
