Book Description

Dec 1 2000


The Planet Pirates traces the careers of two remarkable women. Sassinak escaped from slavery to freedom, and then used that freedom to fight the evil that had wrecked her world, first as a cadet, later as a captain, and finally as an Admiral of the Fleet.

Lunzie, one of the galaxy's greatest healers, is Sassinak's great-grandmother -- but in actual years she is her junior; Lunzie spent nearly a century in coldsleep waiting for rescue when her ship was destroyed. Imagine their mutual surprise when Sassinak rescued her.

How together Sassinak and Lunzie save first a world, and then a confederation of worlds -- and almost in passing establish amity between the genetically engineered Heavy Worlders and normal humanity -- is the story of The Planet Pirates.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I can't see how you could hate this book! Jan. 11 2004
By A Customer
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good book Aug. 4 1998
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read! Feb. 24 2001
By A Customer
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Heinlein influence? Sept. 18 2002
By A Customer
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...

3.0 out of 5 stars Steadily down hill Jan. 23 1998
By A Customer
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!
