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.

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!

HASH(0x982863e4) out of 5 stars A must-read trilogy!!! Dec 28 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Death of Sleep and Sassinak are two of my favorite books. Sassinak and Lunzie are such great heroines. They join forces to destroy a conspiracy in Generation Warriors which is not as good as the other two books. For more about Sassinak and Lunzie and their adventures on the Planet Ireta, read Dinosaur Planet and Dinosaur Planet Survivors.

HASH(0x9817e12c) out of 5 stars Warning: Three books in one July 17 2006
By McQ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed reading this book. In fact, I've read it several times, but I wanted to warn people that it is actually a reprint of 3 separate books: The Death of Sleep, Sassinak, and Generation Warriors. That being said, I was glad I stumbled on this version first, because it meant I didn't have to run out to the store each time I finished one of the novels.

I especially liked Lunzie's storyline. She is cryogenically frozen and has to cope with re-learning how to exist in society. Consider the learning curve someone from the 1950's would have if they woke today. And that is only a 50 year jump. She was out for almost 100!

The plot in this and Dinosaur Planet overlap, but I had some trouble with the continuity between the two. I liked this version better. (Probably because I read it first.)

I recommend this to fans of Elizabeth Moon, David Weber and Lois McMaster Bujold. The science fiction enhances the story, rather than replacing it. Jody Lynn Nye can be a little too fantasy oriented in her science fiction (I'm thinking flying talking frogs(?) from one of the Ship Who Sang books), but she is much more serious and does a very good job on this one.

By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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.

HASH(0x9826948c) out of 5 stars Heinlein influence? Sept. 18 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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...
