Product Description

From AudioFile

Science fiction fans will love Towers's dramatic presentation of these three stories, part of the Planet Pirates series. Towers's voice is resonant and clear, giving life to all the alien creatures involved. The listener is transported to a slavers' space craft, into cryogenic stasis and into the race to save the galaxy. McCaffrey and her co-authors, Elizabeth Moon and Jody Lynn Nye, develop their characters and involve the listener quickly and effectively. Outstanding characterizations and reading add up to a unique listening experience. S.C.A. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This series is so great that I was able to read it all in 3 days! I have re-read it so many times I could almost tell you the plot by heart. I highly recommend this book to everyone who likes sci-fi and adventure.

Well, this book was worth the cost and time, although it certainly wasn't the best book I've read, though it deserves it's place in my good book drawer. It has enough excitement, and there are parts were I got so envolved that I didn't want to put it down for the night. The plot was pretty hard to understand at some points, but it clears itself up once you're finished with the book. It's sort of a conspiracy of some sort. And if you do get this book, make sure you write down what all the letters stand for, like FSP is the Federation of Sentinent Planets.

I have read Anne McCaffery's books for years now and this one was one of her greats. Granted there are no dragons as her books usually have but don't let that stop you. One of the best books by her that I have ever read and I have many of hers from the Dragon Riders to Acorna and out of all those books, these three are the best read of all hers. I can't say enough how much I enjoyed reading this book. I believe that I've read it about 4 or 5 times now and it still can't put it down when I start it again. A dangerous book to be sure. Enjoy!

Anyone besides me notice the similarities between "Sassinak" and "Citizen of the Galaxy" by Robert Heinlein? Thorby and Sassinak both become orphaned slaves at a young age, both are befriended by former members of the space navy, both are programmed with information to be disseminated only to certain designated individuals, under very defined conditions. I love McCaffrey's books, have for years, just wondering if I'm imagining things with this one...

Sassinak is excellent: a fine beginning, but do you notice that, while women serve in the military on an equal footing with men, they never get killed? Generation Warriors, and with it the trilogy, fizzles badly when, at the moment of greatest conflict and seemingly overwhelming danger, the issue is settled in a flash by godlike "flying rocks." AAAAAARGH!
