    more from this reviewer

    Excellent science fiction

    In the not so distant future, Earth has become so overcrowded that its people are forced to search outer space for planets to inhabit just so they can survive. A space station is erected so ships can be built and launched to other galaxies. Passengers will be in suspended animation until the crew finds a world they can colonize. The Talents, people with scientifically proven psychic powers play a pivotal role in the new world order. They teleport heavy items from earth to the space station, saving a fortune in fuel and transportation costs. <P>The most powerful teleporter is Peter Reidenger, a paralyzed individual who remains mobile because of his psychic powers. The people running the space station eagerly accept Peter as a full team member even though some fear his power. On a space shuttle journey to the moon, someone sabotages the ship computers, forcing Peter to use his powers in ways he never knew he could in order to keep everyone alive. A full-scale investigation occurs to uncover the traitors who would rather destroy Peter for reasons of revenge rather than allow the people of earth to have a future in space. <P>Although PEGASUS IN SPACE can stand alone as a superb work of science fiction, the novel is part of a trilogy (see PEGASUS IN FLIGHT and TO RIDE PEGASUS). This book links this saga with the Rowen collection as it shows the beginnings of a space-based society. Although the story line is classic space opera filled with action, there is great characterization in this work as well. The great Anne McCaffrey makes the people populating her novel feel complete, real and very much alive. The hero is not a marvelous rendition of Professor Xavior though some similar traits exist. Instead, he is a unique and special person who will not allow his true physical condition to stop him from enjoying life to the fullest. The talented Ms. McCaffrey, one of the top authors of the twentieth century, demonstrates she will also become one of the most beloved writers of the new millennium. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Great close to the Talent series

    Anne McCaffrey wrote wonderful science fiction. The Talent series is about the acceptance of psychic powers in a modern world. The three books cover nearly 100 years with characters being added and being remembered. Read the series in order to fully enjoy the development of the stories. Great for teen readers and adults.

    Love this series! Padrugoi Space Station is complete and now at

    Love this series!

    Padrugoi Space Station is complete and now attention has been turned to building Moon Base and Mars Base. Little do Peter Reidinger and Johnny Greene know they will be instrumental in making that happen at a much faster pace than anticipated. 


    In the meantime, an orphaned five-year-old girl named Amariyah, is found after the floods in Bangladesh. When it’s discovered she has a lot of as-yet-unknown Talent she is brought back to the Center and raised by Dorotea. There are sinister machinations going on and Peter is in danger when he turns 18 and takes up his official duties for the Center up on Padrugoi. After an accident involving Peter on his 19th birthday the true scope of Amariyah’s Talent becomes known and it’s a doozy. And when Johnny tricks Peter into teleporting a small package from Australia to Moon Base, after getting over his shock, Peter slowly begins to realize he truly can reach for the stars.


    Even though this is the 3rd book in the Talents series it was the last to be written after the Tower and Hive series was complete. In my opinion, it makes a better bridge between the two series than Pegasus in Flight and I’m glad it was added since Peter’s story is as fascinating as it is heartwarming.


    There is a lot going on in this book, but most of it revolves around Peter. Since Peter is the catalyst for all of the books that follow, it’s only right that we learn the history of how FT&amp;T (Federated Telepath and Teleport) comes about. FT&amp;T features heavily in the Tower and Hive series.


    Once again the story flows smoothly and the plot proceeds quickly. My favorite characters are back, some with much larger roles and we pick up Amariyah as well as a few more. The story still fascinates me and makes me wonder how much faster we would be exploring space if we had people with Talents such as these. The mind boggles at the wonder of it all.


    I’m looking forward to picking up The Rowan to continue with the series. As I’ve said before, it’s been a long time since I’ve read this series and I’m really enjoying my immersion back into the world of the Talents.

    Old Story, New Edition, Same Fun

    This book is just as good as it was in dead tree format, and a joy to see return in ebook format.

    Great

    As we have come to expect from Anne, another great book. The way that she weaves together the plot, and makes the characters come alive. You never know what to expect next in this book.

    Another winner

    I just finished this book and I couldn't put it down. Ms McCaffrey has done it again. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves to read. I do suggest that if you haven't already done so, you must read the previous books in this series.
