Acorna's People - Acorna, Bk 3 Author:Anne McCaffrey, Elizabeth Ann Scarborough "Welcome home, Linyaari child!" — Acorna's quest has paid off. With the help of her "uncles" and the thousands of humans who love and admire her, she has found her true people at last. — And they have found her -- Khornya, daughter of the illustrious Feriila and the valiant Vaanye, who was given up for lost after the insect... more »-like Khleevi destroyed their home planet.
Abandoned in space as a baby, rescued and raised by gruff human asteroid miners, Acorna is at last among her own. The beautiful healing horn in the center of her forehead and the "funny" feet and hands that once set her apart now make her one with the telepathic Linyaari who live on as lush agrarian planet where they pursue their peaceful dreams.
Acorna's people welcome her with a lavish costume ball -- and an already-chosen mate! But Acorna still has much to do before she can enjoy the peaceful home she is offered. The legendary resting place of the lost Linyaari ancestors has yet to be found. With the help of the rogue spacetrader Becker and his cat, RK (RoadKill), Acorna must strive to right an unspeakable wrong and defeat an enemy even more cruel than the Khleevi themselves.
In the search, Acorna and her new friends rescue another survivor, also given up for lost. Most importantly, though, Acorna at last uncovers the Universe's most carefully guarded secret -- the true nature of the ancient link between the hoofed, telepathic Linyaari and the space-faring humans she has come to think of as her "people" as well.
In all literature, there is no creature more wondrous, no girl more beautiful, no youth more adventurous than Anne McCaffrey's beloved Unicorn Girl. Acorna and Acorna's Quest told of her childhood and early youth. Now award-winning author Elizabeth Ann Scarborough joins Anne McCaffrey to continue the saga of this beloved character in a story that will delight every fan and win new hearts, too.
Acorna's People is a story for readers of all ages -- especially those who have not yet lost (or who still remember) the magic that lives in the hearts of the young.« less
While I truly enjoyed the first book of this series, and the second one was okay; I struggled through this book. The other books had so many likable characters this one had few. Also, the antagonist should never been that stupid.
Considering I'm a huge fan of Anne McCaffrey, I've been trying to get all of her books. After reading almost all of the Dragonrider series, I have started on the Acorna series. This book is extremely well written and really captures the attention of the reader. It starts you from the time Acorna arrives on her "home/native" planet. It includes several new characters and catches your interest in a few of them. I really recommend this book to those who like Anne McCaffrey or books involving space. Well worth the read!!!!!
