    " Slow to start but was good after that. I enjoyed the first 2 Petabee novels but missed the third. This is the 4th. I need to go back and read the 3rd. It probably have been better if I'd read the one before it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Heather | 2/7/2014

    " Picked it up in the adult audiobook section at the library. It belonged in the juvenile section. "

    " First off, take a look at that cover.... looks to me like those are two adults on that book wouldn't you say? Well the book is about two children. It was still an interesting book/concept, but it was on a different level than I was expecting since I thought it was about two adult siblings, not two pre-teen children. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kris | 2/2/2014

    " It would help to have read the original Petaybee books before reading this. I have read them, but long enough ago that I wished I remembered some of the details better. That said, I enjoyed this new series from McCaffrey and Scarborough. It begins with the birth of twins, part of a new generation on the sentient planet Petaybee. They are selkies, who can change into seals in the water, like their father. As they get older, they long to escape the restrictions put on them by their parents to protect them from ill-meaning people who wish to "study" them. They are sent to live on a space station in the care of a family friend, but evildoers catch up with them there. They are sent home in the nick of time and use their unique talents to help rescue their father. Some interesting side characters include Sky the otter who befriends them and Ke-ola, a young man of Hawaiian descent who helps solve another problem on Petaybee. Recommended. "

    " I don't really know who this is for. It's so bland and simplistic it's hard to imagine that an actual person wrote it. With so many more sophisticated fantasies even for younger readers, this one isn't worth the time it takes to turn the pages. Yawn. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fredrick Danysh | 1/20/2014

    " The half human , half selkie twins grown to their teens on the sentient planet Petaybee. A scientific team tries to capture them to treat them as specimens and theey are shipped off to space while still young enough to go. But their troubles are not over. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 1/10/2014

    " I love reading Anne McCaffrey. This one blends perfectly her mix of science and fantasy (my preference). Sometimes it has some dialogue that is a little too juvenile for my taste, but what the heck! If you read the first book about Petaybee, you'll want to read this one, too! My next step is the sequel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 JoyfulK | 1/9/2014

    " I've reviewed this trilogy elsewhere: see Deluge . "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 ♆ BookAddict ~ La Crimson Femme | 11/17/2013

    " Now this was cute. I enjoyed the original trilogy and to now read about the twins who are cute ornery otters, I have to say, I'm hooked. Fast read and very enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Red Mcswiggan | 10/20/2013

    " This was a fun book to read with my pre-teen daughter "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kendra | 10/13/2013

    " First of a second trilogy for Petaybee. This one is based on the children of the main characters of the first three books. Good quickie read, a bit much for 10 year olds, even if they mature fast. Fun storyline though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kimbolimbo | 10/10/2013

    " Finally Anne wrote another kids book. But unfortunately it isn't well written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bethbrackett | 12/28/2012

    " I love Anne McCaffrey. Read almost everything she's written. It's nice to slip back into fantasy when the real world gets too much "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 9/19/2012

    " Really interesting, fun sci-fi fantasy book. Enjoyed it! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shawn | 9/19/2012

    " Not a bad story, but didn't hold my interest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Edward | 5/24/2012

    " Reminded me why I loved the Dragonrider series from Anne McCaffrey back in the day. I really connected right away with the pregnancy and birth of the twins...my little guy's only 5 months old. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 5/21/2012

    " My friend loves Anne McCaffrey so I decided to give the first book a shot. This wasn't horrible but I'm not interested enough to read the last two books in the series. It seemed a bit juvenile and maybe it was because I just grabbed it without investigating. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lychee | 1/5/2012

    " I'm a big fan of the Petaybee (Powers That Be) series. I was initially surprised at encountering a series that takes on the Gaia hypothesis, albeit in the upbeat McCaffrey (and Scarborough) way. Was utterly charmed by this new offering. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebecca altman | 9/20/2011

    " Very odd book! Makes you think, but you think about things in such a distorted way I am not sure it accomplished what the author intended its meaning to be. Good writing style but wont read again "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Theresa | 8/27/2011

    " The children of sean and yara who are changelings learn their powers and their abilities to change the world.the children have to find their place in the universe. the twins sturgel with their lives and the legend of their parents.and how they save the world. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessi Lebens | 1/10/2011

    " A nice story. It isn't as deep or complex as McCaffrey's Pern novels, but it has a unique storyline and was entertaining. I am probably going to read the rest of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 1/10/2011

    " A continuation of the Petaybee novels, starring the children of the original characters. Some interesting ideas about a senitent planet, and the kids are engaging. A few too many side plots. Like the Acorna books, I think this series has been spun out too long. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shawn | 10/24/2010

    " Not a bad story, but didn't hold my interest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/22/2009

    " These 10-yr-olds think and act like 13-14 year olds. While this is partially explained in the introduction, it is not emphasized enough to make the twins' age believable. Beyond that, this is a good book that McCaffrey and Scarborough fans will enjoy. "

About the Author
Author Anne McCaffrey

Anne McCaffrey graduated cum laude from Radcliffe College, majoring in Slavonic Languages and Literatures. A prolific bestselling author, she is best known for her handling of broad themes and the worlds of her imagination, particularly in her tales of the Talents and the numerous novels about the Dragonriders of Pern. She lives in a house of her own design, Dragonhold-Underhill, in County Wicklow, Ireland.

About the Narrator

Robert Ramirez came to audiobook narration fresh from his MFA in classical theater. Initially answering a casting call for a narrator who spoke Spanish, Robert has used his Mexican-American background to imbue authentic flavor and dialogue in audio titles. His success with six young adult novels by Gary Soto has gotten our attention, including Taking Sides and Buried Onion. His powerful command of language and rich voice reflect his interest in dialects. In his recent performance of Beast by Donna Jo Napoli, a modern fable of “Beauty and the Beast” set in Persia, Robert jumped at the chance to add Farsi and Arabic to his repertoire. We hope to hear Robert in different audiobook venues in coming months.
