Pegasus in Space by Anne McCaffrey

Review by noire

I've been a fan of Anne McCaffrey fan since I read my first book by her (Sassinak) oh geeze, I don't even want to think how many years ago. Close to a decade. I will, unfortunately, have to admit that a lot of her recent work has ranged from disapointing to hashed out drivel. Which is why I was so happy to find Pegasus in Space as enjoyable as I did.

McCaffrey returns to the world of Talents to bridge the chronologically earlier To Ride the Peagasus and Pegasus in Flight with the chronologically later Rowan, Damia, et al. We find ourselves once more following the life of Peter Reidinger (a parapeligic talent with an amazing talent) and a few of his friends as they try and prove to the world that, rather than fearing those with special gifts such as telepathy and telekenises they should learn to employ and appreciate them. Along the way they face assasination attempts, hostile take overs from radical sociopaths, and *gasp* falling in love. It's a well written bridge that clearly and convincingly shows how this world got from point A to point B and sets the stage for the sequel novels without selling out on creativity, character, development. Did that make any sense? I hope so. This book reminded me why I love Anne McCaffrey's gift for story telling. For this I'll even forgive her Nimsha's Ship.
