Critic Reviews

"The author has created memorable, strong characters who are believable and well fleshed out. This is McCaffrey at her best." ( School Library Journal)
"Narrator Jean Reed-Bahle reads all three. She is an excellent reader - her low-pitched voice is expressive and easy to listen to." ( AudioFile)

seems odd

it seems like chapters were cut down and whole chapters were omitted from the story, it could have been just editing errors, however it did effect my enjoyment as I have read the story in the past several times. eh... its ok

Great story!

Anna McCaffrey is a superb author with multiple series. each series is independent of the others and each series is totally believable. Her characters are unique, warm and very real.

You know what to expect....

More entertainment from McCaffrey. A light listen, but fun and well paced. Best to read the series in order.
