This book was ok. Typical McCaffrey romance stuff. The ending picked up with an alien invasion. I just really couldn't get into this book though. It was long and more about finding romance and also her family. Other than that... it was kind of dull.

Decent romantic science fiction. The early Acorna books were better in my opinion but this one had good background info.

A good enough story, but didn't grab me like McCaffrey's Pern series.

Good book.

My first introduction to McCaffrey, which is probably why I liked it more than others. But saying that, it still is one of my all time favorite books. I read this in early high school and it hooked me with a world of telepathy set in the future of Earth after we have achieved commercial space travel and branched out to living on other planets. Romance is part of it but in my opinion is the side of the greater science fiction plot. Out of the 5, which I have only read 4 of, I liked the first 2 the best but still enjoyed the others. Now I haven't read her Pern Novels, but I did get to most of Scorna and I still prefer this series.

Even as a child, the Rowan was one of the strongest Talents ever born. Telepaths across the world had heard her mental distress calls when her family's home was suddenly destroyed...Years later, she became a Prime Talent, blessed with a special power which stretched across the stars. But without family, friends - or love - the Rowan's power was not enough to bring her happiness...Then a telepathic message came from a distant world facing an alien threat, a message sent by an unknonwn Talent named Jeff Raven. Now - be it power, danger, or love - the Rowan is about to meet her match.

Book is in good shape but the corners are slightly dinged and there is a crease at the right top corner of the front cover.
