    " A pleasant story, part of a series but stands on its own just fine. The 'shellperson' concept is intriguing and the main character, Tia, is very sympathetic. Her courage at the beginning of the book makes me cry, and the adventures she and her Brawn, Alex, have are interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Talietha | 1/31/2014

    " Adventure and romance. A fun read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barry | 1/27/2014

    " This was my introduction to Mercedes Lackey and I was not disappointed. Though, to me, it seemed to be written far more in Annd McCaffrey's style. That is not a complaint, just an observation. There is good character development and story line. Overall, it was enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michele bookloverforever | 1/26/2014

    " GOOD, BUT I MUCH PREFER THE LESSA &F'LAR SERIES BETTER. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kitty O'neal | 1/10/2014

    " If I could give this book six stars, I would. It is one of my go-to books for when I need cheering up, and I love it to bits. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bryan457 | 1/7/2014

    " One of my favorite Brainship books. I really like Tia. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tumata Garbutt | 1/7/2014

    " Another good book of the brain ship series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 1/2/2014

    " I loved this book. Tia brought me to tears at times (but good ones). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joy | 12/29/2013

    " Probably McCaffrey's best collaboration. Very emotionally engaging. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa Williamson | 12/21/2013

    " This was a lot of fun to reread. Like all of Ms McCaffrey's books it was well worth reading more than one time. I am working my way through this series again and remembering why I adore her BB books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erika | 12/14/2013

    " I like Tia and Alex. I want a Ted. The story is pretty good too although you want to smack Tia for breathing in the Eskay garbage in the first place. At least she has brains enough to make the best of her situation otherwise. The investment side plot is a cute one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelle | 12/9/2013

    " This is one of my favorite books. I have worn out two copies. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelsey | 11/19/2013

    " One of my favorite books of all time, and one I can easily read over and over! This is my favorite of all the brainship books. I love the characters and the story...it is just wonderful! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Theresa | 10/27/2013

    " the story of a ship who searches for new life and worlds. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/6/2013

    " Thoroughly enjoyed it. Took me just a few days to read it, cause I couldn't put it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan McArthur | 1/11/2013

    " Really good, the brain ships are a cool idea, the plot and characters are good. I liked the idea of interstellar archeology. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandra Strange | 11/19/2012

    " Great adventure within a very interesting reality of ships melded with humans. Watch out for the sensuality in some of these books. However, they're still worth reading--well written fantasy adventure with positive characters and decisions, with the ultimate triumph of the noble and good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Misti | 7/27/2012

    " One of my all-time favorites for years. I love Tia. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 CatBookMom | 3/25/2012

    " This is so good. Tia is an amazing character, and IMO this is the best of the series after the Helva tales. Makes me really wish that McCaffrey had written or collaborated on many more of these stories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ron | 12/22/2011

    " Good read,I definately reccomend it! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 David Burgess | 8/22/2011

    " The characters seem well-developed, but there isn't really any story besides the relationship. Lots of stuff made me roll my eyes, especially the made-up words obviously used in place of swearing. It reads like some kind of 'young adults' book in places. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah Bird | 8/18/2011

    " I found the ending a little unsatisfying as we don't get to know if Tia found a cure for the illness that crippled her. Apart from that it was a satisfying read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David C. | 4/7/2011

    " A wonderful addition to the "The Ship Who Sang" universe. A fun romp with memorable, upbeat characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Justine | 4/3/2009

    " Very cute, quick, sweet read. Standard fare for the Brainships series. Features a child of archaeologist parents, which is at least a bit interesting, especially since the archaeology is described reasonably well. "
