They inherited their mother's legendary powers of telepathy. But Damia's children will need more than psionic Talent to face the enemy's children--an alien race more insect than human...
The plot is simple: with a threat of the HIVE upon them, the telepathic 'talented' Lyon children must help their parents defend earth from....The predations of a vicious insect species, but are they so vicious? Only the Lyon children seem capable of figuring this out.
I think that the author may fall into a bit of a rut with this series. The Lyon children are 'super' kids, squeaky clean, friendly and well-adjusted. While I understand that they have lots of responsibility, these children are too perfect. They are more competant, more intelligent, and more powerful than anyone else. <Sighs>. No WONDER some Terran's resent them.
Two things that skeeved ne out about this book: Number One: How easily these 'children' are manipulated by the adults. I would hope that in the future they have some form of child labor laws Number Two: The second story about Theon, where he has a relationship with a much older army nurse. Ick. this completely skeeved me out. I guess its just my western mind, but a relationship between a teenager and a much older woman and this person a nurse in a position of authority is pretty gross. No thanks! Ick. Ick. Double Ick!
Overall, the second story cost this book two stars. Not as good as some of her earlier works.
