It was Ok. It was a bit exciting in parts, but McCaffrey fell back into fixing everyone up with a compatiable mate. I was actually surprised that she killed off a couple of the cute and fuzzy aliens (and it was one of the cute and fuzzy aliens that killed them) very violently. But lo and behold, she managed to bring them back to life. Then life went back to "Happy go lucky, every thing is great" style of characters. There is no human angst or anything like that. I get the impression that McCaffrey is a very old fashioned lady. Although, I have a hard time with some of the romance age differences. She always has one romance in her books where one of the couples that hook up, that have a HUGE age difference. Like old enough to be their parent. OK... perhaps she's trying to signify that age shouldn't matter (and I don't in most cases feel it matters). But it's also a sign of sexual abuse. So I wonder if the author was abused as a child??? Ok, enough of my meandering. Not a bad read, but this series will not top my best read of the year.

In this sequel to Damia's Children , the psionically Talented children of Damia Gwyn-Raven and Afra Lyon are pushed closer to the forefront of the struggle between the human Nine Star League and their alien Mrdini allies against the blind expansionism of the insect-like Hive culture that threatens both their civilizations. Rojer, like his siblings a T-1 at the most powerful level of Talent, is assigned to provide communication and transport for a squadron following a Hiver vessel. When he refuses a command by the Mrdini Captain Prtglm to launch missiles psionically against an occupied Hiver planet, he barely escapes while Prtglm kills his Mrdni companions, complicating an already delicate situation. A debate sharpens within the human community and with the Mrdini over the fate of the Hive colonies, with some humans and most of the Mrdinis holding out for complete destruction. Another large faction of humanity, which has eschewed war for generations, seeks a less bloodthirsty solution, such as isolation and containment.
