They were called Talents - people with extrasensory abilities including reading minds, predicting the future, and healing. But though their gifts were useful and powerful, they were not happy. Often afraid of their own inexplicable powers, they lived on the margins - until Henry Darrow dreamed up the Parapsychic Center and started making a place for the Talents. It wasn't very long before they had a mission - and enemies. Download and start listening now!

    " I remember when I first read about this. These four women were feared because of what they could do. Isn't it always the way. I wonder if this were in real life and I was one of these women how would I have responded? Then again, I wonder if I didn't have this talent, would I be jealous? Envious? How would I respond? "

    " This is a fun book about paranormal mental abilities. I enjoyed this book and highly recommend it for a good read. I plan to read the two follow-on books in this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabby | 12/12/2013

    " Fantastic set of short stories by AM, some of which were later expanded into novels, but I have to say that I like them in the more condensed form. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 12/3/2013

    " This was a good book, not as good as her other books though. Since this is one of her earlier works, I think she was still developing her writing style. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Icedragon | 11/25/2013

    " Only halfway... I didn't like it so I stopped. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Georgene | 11/17/2013

    " 4 interconnected short stories with nary a dragon in sight. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim Kuhne | 10/26/2013

    " Amazing story! Anne did a wonderful job tying in the Rowen series to what was originally just a short story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Poetreehugger | 10/24/2013

    " Well worth reading (again, as it turns out, since half way through the book I realized I had read it before, a few decades ago). The reflections of social attitudes of the sixties gives an almost archaeological feel to the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Justy | 9/9/2013

    " Reading this book is like watching Classic Star Trek, you can see what the world was like when it was written but still love the vision of the future that is shown. Some of the attitudes in the book may be dated but the world is easy to slip into and I enjoyed visiting it again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bryan457 | 7/15/2013

    " Four short stories about people with paranormal talents. "

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

    " wow, I actually read this twice in the last year and completely forgot I read it the first time around. Yeah, I found it that memorable :\ I can't really see myself continuing this series unless I read some glowing recommendations "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lobug | 1/2/2013

    " I admit I didn't like this one as much as the others I've read of Anne McCaffrey. It was good-but I'm not a short story lover, and this was like a small series of short stories. Good, but not my favorite style. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jacinta | 12/25/2012

    " The book itself is probably only average, but I'm a big fan of it as the first (chronological) book in the universe. "

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

    " An old favourite - found in a small store in Colville (as in "wind warning from Bream Head to Cape Colville") in the Coromandel! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marlo | 4/8/2012

    " I had no idea the Pegasus series was the precursor for the Rowan books, loved finding out the history of the FT&T primes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mdi | 1/29/2012

    " I liked it but prefer her dragon books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becca R.G. | 11/16/2011

    " Good stories; strong characters. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cydney | 10/6/2011

    " An obvious stitch together of early short stories "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 9/10/2011

    " I kept feeling like I recognized the stories while I was reading it and "Pegasus in Flight," but I knew I hadn't read either books. Turns out they're part of "The Wings of Pegasus," which I HAD read, so it all made sense then! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Oren | 8/27/2011

    " I like this book because it is almost an experimental genre. It is fantasy and sci-fi together. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenniffer | 7/8/2011

    " I like Anne McCaffrey, but this book was okay. It felt it skipped around a little and some stuff just didn't feel like it was explained enough. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen Southall | 6/23/2011

    " Good fun read. Nice addition to author's body of work regarding fantasy creations. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gabrielle | 4/28/2011

    " Precurser to The Rowan series. Love re-reading it as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jayme(the ghost reader) | 6/5/2010

    " I have been an Anne McCaffrey fan. I thought this book was only average. I liked the plot and the magic. It was considered science fiction for its time. Reading it in the 21st century, when it was published in 1973 and set in 1997 which was supposed to be the future, it seems not that impressive. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bryan457 | 4/25/2010

    " Four short stories about people with paranormal talents. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lavendersbluegreen | 12/13/2009

    " An old favorite full of great shorts in the same universe as a lot of her books. A fantastic look at the what ifs of our society with organized “Talents”. I am so glad I found a used copy to replace the one I used to have! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Icedragon | 11/29/2009

    " Only halfway... I didn't like it so I stopped. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel | 5/31/2009

    " First of McCaffrey's series about "Talents". I'd thought I'd read this ages ago, but must have skipped over the first three to read the later books. Not McCaffrey's best work, but still easy and entertaining read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/21/2009

    " I discovered this first book years ago and fell in love with it.Poor Henry, to be the one to start things from scratch, but his successor proved to be even better. I have read this series numerous times and enjoy the first five the most. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Justy | 3/15/2009

    " Reading this book is like watching Classic Star Trek, you can see what the world was like when it was written but still love the vision of the future that is shown. Some of the attitudes in the book may be dated but the world is easy to slip into and I enjoyed visiting it again. "
