Product Description

From Amazon

Anne McCaffrey is best known for The Dragonriders of Pern, but her loose Talents series about superpsychics has been running almost as long. It began with the near-future To Ride Pegasus, continuing a couple of generations later in Pegasus in Flight. Book 2 introduced a crowd of new characters, notably the paralyzed boy Peter whose telekinetic talent can move not only his body without help from his ruined nervous system, but--with practice--even lift payloads into orbit.

Pegasus in Space follows directly, with mayhem and mutiny, at the opening of a manned space station, which Peter and talented friends helped build. Further hassles ensue during his training for space haulage work: obstructive bureaucrats, crooked suppliers, murder attempts, and skillful sabotage. McCaffrey specializes in feel-good adventure SF, full of romance, warm friendships, and hearty meals. Somehow her villains never quite convince, though, and their evil deeds are so rapidly annulled that the story rarely builds up much suspense. Meanwhile, the orphan girl Amiriyah who's adopted into Peter's family has a mysterious, subtle talent of her own, one that we soon guess will change his life. Our young hero's ambitions foreshadow later far-future books in the series (beginning with The Rowan) in which "kinetics" hurl cargo across huge interstellar gulfs. While most people think his talent needs careful conservation, Peter has already teleported supplies to the moon and has secret plans for Mars, the asteroids, and the moons of Jupiter. It all makes for an agreeable, lightweight read. --David Langford, --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From Publishers Weekly

The next in McCaffrey's popular Saga of the Talents series (Pegasus in Flight, To Ride Pegasus), this novel follows the adventures of a group of psychically gifted scientists who nobly improve Earth's future by making space exploration and colonization possible. Paralyzed adolescent Peter Reidinger has learned how to move himself and some amazingly heavy objects psychokinetically through space. Peter lives with the grandmotherly Rhyssa, who protects him and nurtures the growth of his psychic talents. Rhyssa also takes in prepubescent Amariyah, an orphaned girl who has a talent for plants and healing. When a group of psychically gifted people sneak onto the corruptly run Padrugoi Space Station during its inauguration, it is young Peter who saves the day by using his burgeoning psychic abilities to vanquish the comically evil Space Station Construction Manager Ludmilla Barchenka as she attempts a coup. This impresses Admiral Dirk Coetzer, whose life is saved by Peter's quick thinking. The admiral encourages Peter to consider a career in space, and he happily complies. Treachery, assassination attempts and medical disasters ensue, but the novel's primary focus is on McCaffrey's vision of science and psychic abilities meshing so that humanity can inherit the stars. Cheerful, upbeat and chock-full of fun facts on space stations and space exploration, the novel features cartoon villains and nobly one-dimensional protagonists, making the space station and colonies McCaffrey's real heroes--for they show actual growth and development as her vision of the future progresses.

Not the best Pegasus Book -
The last book in the Pegasus series Pegasus in Space which bridges the Pegasus series and the Rowan series is my least favorite of the Pegasus books.
The story centers around the character of Peter Reidinger, the most powerful Telekinetic that Earth has produced. I was very dissapointed in the book because it seemed to forget about the characters and got heavy into the Sci-Fi Tech stuff. Anne McCaffrey spent too much of the book detailing space suits and other technical stuff, which was rather boring and monotonous to read.
In the previous book , Pegasus in Flight, the book focused on Peter Reidinger, Tirla, and Rhyssa Owen. In this book the character of Tirla appears briefly in the beginning and then is only mentioned by other characters afterward. Rhyssa Owen fares little better as her character whines about protecting Peter while he is in space. A new character introduced in the book is Amareeya and her only purpose in the book is to further Peter's plot. Amareeya, who is obsessed with gardening and plants, drones on about her garden mentioning the planets using there latin names. One thing that puzzled me about this character was that she seemed quite aware of her talent and how to use it and yet the other characters seemed oblivious to this. No one talked to Amareeya about her Talent or about Talent in general.
And this is what was wrong with the book, the characters never seemed to talk to each other about their lives or emotions. It would have been nice for the author to focus on Tirla's life rather than every once and awhile adding a throwaway line about her engagement, marriage, etc. Ms. McCaffrey seemed to forget her characters in favor of endless Sci-Fi Tech talk. If you are buying this book expecting to spend some time with the characters then you will be dissapointed.
My recomendation is that if you are interested in reading the book - take it out of the library.

The book over all was an excellent end to a very good series. McCaffrey's use of a wide range of telepathic powers (Talents) opened my mind (pun intended) to a vast array of possiblities. The progress of Peter's kenetic growth was not all that suprising yet when he 'ported to "First Base" (on the Moon)I was happy at first, impressed second than third annoyed; because when Peter "landed" Limo-34 he nearly destroyed the Apollo 12 historical site. What really suprised me was the regrowth of Peter's nerve endings and spinal cord, truly the most important event in the book (way more important than travelling 45 light years in the blick of an eye). Yet while the book was quickly paced it lacked the edge that I had found in "Pegasus in Flight". And most upsetting was that Trile was only a minor character in this novel. The unusual thing is one I mentioned in my review of "To Ride Pegasus," that was a lack of underhandedness by secret government/military involvement. Maybe McCaffrey is more of a Utopion, and I a Dysutopion. Or more likley the X-Files has just lodged itself in societies sub-conscience and we so look for such deceptions, but when it is not found, that scares us even more.

Pegasus in Space is a nice cap to the trilogy-so-far of the Pegasus Talents books, but it lacks a little in overall plot and intrest--the previous two books, To Ride Peagsus and Pegasus in Flight, are quite a bit better. Pegasus in Space did a good job of finishing all the previous character's stories, and it was a very interesting prequel to The Rowan Talents books--it and its two mates set up the situation in The Rowan and onward books quite nicely--showing the origins of Talent and, in Pegasus in Space, the origin of FT&T. But besides finishing up the trilogy and setting the stage for later books, it was pretty lacking. First of all, Pegasus in Space starts out making a very big deal about Amariyah--but never finishes it. She's this phenominal healer Talent, but the only mention of her after the age of 13 is such an "oh, and by the way" deal that it leaves one a little confused, after all the hype about her in the first part of the book. Then, in the middle of the book, Anne McCaffrey switches into heavy *heavy* sci-fi mode with all her descriptions of space walking and shuttle launching, etc. For a person like myself--a lover of sci-fi/fantasy, but not a die-hard sci-fi reader--it got quite boring and monotonus. And the whole book was mainly about one chracter--Peter Reidinger. Not that a story is not allowed to have a main character, but after the previous two books, which were both relatively oligarchal as far as characters went, it was quite a change. Seemed a bit of an overkill on Peter. The whole book was about his obsession with space. Like I said, it's a nice setup for The Rowan, but it was very overkill. And the only "bad guys" were a weak resurrection of Pegasus in Flight's main villians.Read more ›

I loved "Pegasus in Flight," liked some of "To Ride Pegasus," and liked "Pegasus in Space" simply because it offered conclusions to the stories begun in "Pegasus in Flight." Unfortunately, that's about ALL it did. There was far too much going on. It seems like McCaffrey decided to wind up every single plotline begun or even THOUGHT of beginning in the previous books. We get to see not only everyone married, but the number, names, and birth-order of their children. The plot moves too fast. Rebellion? Bam. Illness? Bam. Evil bad guys doing their thing again? Bam. One problem after the other, all solved with lightning-quick speed. It felt more like a plot outline than a book sometimes. Also, the new characters didn't feel very well fleshed-out. I didn't really care about any of them. That said, it WAS nice to have another outing with these characters. I do agree that more Tirla would have been nice, although that's one of my main complaints: too much time spent with the new characters (who were dull), not enough with the old (except Peter).
One-sentence synopsis: Good if you've read and liked the other Pegasus books and want to find out what happens to the characters, bad as a beginner to the series.
