Publisher's Summary

For an overpopulated Earth, whose resources are strained to the breaking point, there is only one place to look for relief: straight up. With the successful completion of the Padrugoi Space Station, humanity has at last achieved its first large-scale permanent presence in space. Additional bases are feverishly being built on the Moon and on Mars, stepping-stones to the greatest adventure in all history: the colonization of alien worlds.

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?

    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!

    "Need book 1 and 2!"

    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.

    Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.

    "Re-Listen"

    I always like the talents series, I re-listen every other year or so. This book and the Rowan books are very well done. I wish somebody would get the earlier books in unabridged format, the abridged earlier books aren't worth it.

    "One of my favorites"

    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.

    "Finished with a flare"

    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!

    Story
    "Teleportation begins to facilitate space explorat"
    What did you love best about Pegasus in Space?

    Peter is a wonderful character. He's full of life and wonder.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Teleportation as an alternative to some sort of "warp drive" or "hyper drive" technology is a very interesting idea.


    What does Sharon Williams bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I like how she changes her voice when they are using telepathy.


    Any additional comments?

    A fun read, well narrated.

    Story
    "Perfect Ending/Beginning of a trilogy."

    This is an amazing way to tie up the loose ends from the first two books in the Pegasus series. McCaffery is amazing in her story telling prowess.

    This book is for anyone who read the first two and didn't realize she had written the ending to them. (Like me.)

    "Awesomesauce"

    I have read this book many times but hearing it truly touched my heart and made it even more dear to me. I cried, I laughed, and could stop smiling when it was over.
