    You Have to LOVE Anne McAffrey!

    Acorna's series is absolutely delicious! I introduced her to my daughter and she remains a fan! Ms. McAffrey invites you into a world of science fiction, fantasy and you won't want to leave! Her writing is like a movie in your mind! James Cameron must have read her works to be able to envision his. Once you've read one series, you'll want to read the others. She explores all the pertinent points of the human condition!

    great entry in a strong running fantasy series

    Khorii, the daughter of Acorna and Aari, is on her first long space faring voyage and hopes for a little excitement. She gets more than she bargained for when a virulent plague sweeps the human galaxy killing millions and her parents are asked to use their healing abilities to save lives. They agree to go to a planet where there are desperately needed while their daughter visits Maganos Moonbase where she makes friends with human youngsters as well as the young water dwelling Poopuus children. --- When the plague comes to the Poopuus world, the youngsters beg Khorii to go there and save their parent with her horn on the forehead that heals. She agrees to go and is accompanied by some students a teacher, her cyborg friend and her sentient cat. She saves the people and the planet by letting the properties of the horn heal the people and cleanse the water. She then meets up with her parents but it is not a happy reunion. In order to help Aari and Acorna, Khorii must track the origins of the man-made plague and find an antidote that will help her family.--- FIRST WARNING continues the adventures of Acorna and her family but Khorii is the main protagonist as she comes into her psychic powers and matures into a person willing to heal whole planets and expose herself to danger to keep those she cares closest to safe. The authors give as much attention to the characterizations as they do to the action scenes making FIRST WARNING a great entry in a strong running fantasy series. --- Harriet Klausner
