It is difficult growing up in the shadow of heroes revered throughout the galaxy. But Khorii became a hero in her own right as she fought to save the universe from a mysterious, deadly plague that not even the healing powers of the Linyaari could stop.

Now, confined with the rest of the survivors on Paloduro, it seems as if Khorii and her friends may be able to stem the tide of death and disease. However, ominous signs indicate that the epidemic is only beginning, as old enemies reemerge and a shocking family secret is revealed. With the aid of her android brother, Khorii must foil the deadly pestilence before a covert mission to cripple the entire star system is catastrophically complete. Download and start listening now!

    " Great new twist, good plot development. Luckily I read this when I already had the third book - would have been hard to wait! "

    " This is kind of like STNG for me. Except I liked Data. I don't like Khorii's robot brother too much. At times I like him. Other times I just roll my eyes and want him to go away. I'm not sure I liked this story as much. It was just okay for me. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lady Heinz | 11/16/2012

    " these books were very disappointing. at first i thought it was juvenile science fiction, but then part way through there are sex workers and spirits and violent gore...stopped 1/2 way through it and through one of the other acorna books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marissa | 11/1/2012

    " Fast-paced and action-packed! It picks up nicely where the previous novels left off. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sharon | 12/9/2011

    " This series is starting to wear thin as it covers Acorna's descendants. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Siobhan Parker | 5/16/2011

    " Simply not as good as the original series. Fans of the earlier Acorna novels should check out some of Anne McCaffrey's other works instead of bothering with this mess. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karrine | 11/10/2010

    " I enjoyed the first book more. Although the story came together towards the end there were a few points where I wasn't engaged and was tempted to jump ahead. But I look forward to getting through the rest of series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mollie *scoutrmom* | 5/7/2010

    " A great continuation of Acorna, I see that these must be read in order. It appears that a larger work has been broken into smaller novels. I love Anne McCaffrey's people, this book centered on political maneuverings and how the innocent are affected. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alice | 1/10/2010

    " I was somewhat disappointed when McCaffrey came out with several books in this series. This first installment contained some interesting elements, but the whole thing became extremely drawn out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bronwyn | 1/23/2008

    " I stopped reading the series after this book. It is one of those series you think will never end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tali | 4/14/2007

    " As excellent as the first and filled with an excellent plotline that constantly keeps the reader's attention. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bradley | 4/7/2007

    " I enjoy books eariler in a series as a general rule. This one was pretty good. I will read it again some time. =) "
