I read the first one in the series years ago and was so happy to see that the story continued. I have always enjoyed Anna McCaffrey's novels and this series was really interesting for me.
Sci-Fi.

I suggest you start with Freedom's Landing which is the first in the series. Wonderful Sify series set in a future. It is has good as the Dragons of Pern. Unfortunately it isn't has long.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the conclusion to her trilogy spun from a short story about a band of humans and aliens made prisoner in an interspecies war and dumped on a planet. They make the planet their own, overcome suspicion and distrust of the one enemy alien among them, and unite to spearhead a rebellion that eventually overthrows the bad guys. Anne McCaffrey has always had a tendency to make her characters too black-and-white - the good guys are courageous, smart, let's-all-be-one-happy-family types, and the bad ones are always annoying, petty, cowardly, generally hateful creatures that you keep wishing would be killed somewhere along the way. She does the same here, to an even greater extent. I have a great respect for her talent, but she has plateaued, and her stories, while still well written, are not as captivating as her earlier ones that won her fame. This series is full of cliches, and while it spins a good yarn, can't really be taken seriously. I get the feeling that this was written more for money than the story itself.

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this third installation of the Freedom's series. I loved the way they used a male voice and female voice to play the different characters. Listening to the story is a little like watching it play out on a stage. The Freedom series is a good tale, but it's just a little on fast-forward. The "dropped" has accomplished a lot in the time they spent on Botany. Granted they have thousands of "dropped" with highly specialized skills that enable the former-slaves to develop Botany so quickly, but I'm sure a lot of sci-fi realists (is there really such a thing) would be a little put off by what the Botanists have achieved (freeing Earth and Cattani from the dreaded Eosi) in just a short time with their wit being their main resource. Just keep your vision on fast-forward and you'll enjoy the series. I'm looking forward to the fourth in the series, Freedom's Ransom, due out June 2002. I hope it'll explain a few things and tie up some loose ends.

This series starts badly and ends even worse. While the plot is reasonably creative, the writing is absolutely abysmal. This series is so carelessly written, and with such minimal attention paid to even the most *basic* details of the craft that it was actually painful to read. Unless you are completely willing to disregard the miserable quality (and the often far-fetched storyline), I would strongly advise against wasting your money on these books.

In this third volume of the Freedom trilogy, Anne McCaffrey closes all the loose ends she'd left open in the previous two volumes, effectively ending the series. As a whole, the series was interesting, and throughout the three books, I felt for the characters, and wanted to know what they'd do next. It was a step-by-step detailed description of how a small group of exiles built a home on a planet that was initially hostile to them. In the context of being a series ending, the book is satisfying. The colonists finally realize success after so long and hard an endeavor. But when viewed by itself, this book contained only the successes, and none of the real hardships.

The entire book passes by with very little challenge to the colonists of Botany. It was an interesting logistical inventory for setting up a successful colony, but there's no real conflict. Just about everything they attempt works out, often better than they'd expected. About halfway through the book, I was sure something would finally go wrong, but it never did. Some of the successes were ridiculously easy. Some were at the very least, improbable. The humans on Botany were able to disguise themselves as Catteni with a little makeup and prosthetic cheekbones. This disguise was somehow able to fool real Catteni even after prolonged interaction. I found this a little bit unlikely.

As an ending to the series, it was adequate. But to make it a good installment in a trilogy, the author really should have included more conflict and story. The last book could have ended "And they lived happily ever after" and no real plot points would have been lost. Still, the writing style is enjoyable, and I already liked the characters enough to see what happened next. The same favorites are back in this book, and the story such as it is moves along with good pacing. On that merit alone, the book earns three stars.

I really liked this third book for the most part, but the end left me asking the above question. The plot resolution was one of the worst I believe I have ever read from Ms. McCaffrey, who happens to be one of my favorite authors. I felt like I had been cheated. A fourth book might help make this series a little better.

I can't believe it! I found a book that both my wife and I like! Three books! She hates it when I get into a book, but when I finished the first book I handed it to her and asked her to try it. Just like Mikey, she liked it. As a matter of fact she loved. We have read and enjoyed all three books but, where is book number four? Anybody know? We're waiting!
