Experience the first Killashandra Ree adventure, in which the indomitable Killa overcomes disappointment in one career by diving into a much more exciting one. Filled with suspense, anguish, romance, and intrigue, this distinctive adventure is one of Anne McCaffrey's best.

I really liked the story. I read the book about 20 years ago and thought it was a little longer. The sound of the recording was a little garbled.

I liked this book as it pulls a person from the "real" world and back to another world. It steps through the process of adapting to a old world with modern-day knowledge. Well at least the knowledge of the average teenager. Good story line and characters.

Linda Kaplan Thaler and Robin Koval have moved to the top of the advertising industry by following a simple but powerful philosophy: it pays to be nice. While so many companies encourage a dog-eat-dog mentality, The Kaplan Thaler Group has succeeded through chocolate and flowers.
