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? Download and start listening now!

    " hard for me to get into, but later part was better for me "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joanna | 2/7/2014

    " The most recent addition to the Talent books, and not one of my favorites. I found the characters less developed than in The Rowan or Damia. The book felt unfinished, although it appears to be the last of a trilogy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ninalyn831 | 1/24/2014

    " Liked that it continued the story, but was so technical it was a little dry. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lavendersbluegreen | 12/19/2013

    " Wowsers. This really drew the picture for me between some of her older books like the Rowan and the old Pegasus book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathleen Dixon | 8/1/2013

    " A third in the Pegasus series, this has the same generation of characters as the 2nd, and develops the young Peter very nicely. I love the psychic stuff. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barry | 2/27/2013

    " This has a good story, well developed characters, and is enjoyable to read. However, Psychic powers have been passe for a long time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelsey | 11/28/2012

    " My least favorite of the Pegasus books, but that by no means makes it bad! It just has some rather stiff competition from the other two. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebekah | 11/25/2012

    " Amazing, i read a lot of book but when i piked this one up i just coudnt put it down the only reasone it took me as long as it did (3 days) is cause i am in school and i ahve homework "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karl Schaeffer | 10/2/2012

    " I like McCaffrey. She generally writes in an easy, readable style. "Pegasus in Space" is no exception. The good guys are good, the bad guys are bad. The bad guys don't get too much of an upper hand. Nice predictable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becca R.G. | 10/15/2011

    " A glorious, triumphant ending. This is a good connecting book, but it's not cohesive. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gere Lewis | 9/18/2011

    " Want to know the story of the legendary Peter Reidinger? Here you go. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindig | 9/11/2011

    " Meh. It's like comfort food -- perfectly edible but not exciting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ananya Gupta | 9/8/2011

    " First read of an Anne McCaffrey book. I liked to storyline, and approach. It is not "unputdownable", but a good sci-fi read for those who enjoy the genre "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 8/31/2011

    " I really enjoy this one. The characters in the first books are coming into their own, and a couple more very interesting people are added. It can be the ending of this trilogy, or the setup for the series that starts with The Rowan. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Al | 8/11/2011

    " While an adequate story for any other writer, I was expecting more from McCaffrey. The story seemed to move slow and I had a hard time getting through it. Usually, when I'm done reading one of her books, I'm disappointed that it's over. When I finished this one, I was glad it was over. "

    " Final novel of the paranormals before switching to the Rowan thread. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alice | 1/10/2010

    " A full-length novel that fleshes out the story of Peter Reidinger, whom we first met in a short story. I love MacCaffrey's vision of future life on Earth, and the role of extra-sensory Talents. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel | 7/7/2009

    " Final novel of the "Pegasus" trilogy. McCaffrey continues to give backstory to her other novels here. Plot is light and the characters challenges mostly come from within. Easy read, but probably only for dedicated McCaffrey fans who want to cover every novel. "
