"A treat for long-time McCaffrey fans, a good read and a satisfying look at one of the most haunting facets of the crystal singers' profession."
LOCUS
When Killashandra Ree joined the mysterious Heptite Guild, she knew that she would be forever changed. Crystal singing brought ecstasy and pain, near-eternal life...and gradual loss of memory. What she hadn't counted on was the loneliness she felt when her heart still remembered what her mind had forgotten. Fortunately, someone still cared enough to try to salvage what was left of Killashandra's mind. But she would have to learn to open herself--to another person, and to all her unpleasant memories.


From the Paperback edition.

Editorial Reviews

Sally Estes
Following "Crystal Singer" and "Killashandra" [O 15 85], this third novel in the series continues the saga of Killashandra Ree, long-time successful crystal singer and miner, a career with side effects that include not only near-eternal life but also increasing memory loss over the years. Here, Killashandra's memory has deteriorated to the point where she doesn't always remember the names of colleagues. But then, there's a lot that she doesn't really want to remember. The discovery of a planet with a new, sentient crystal, however, leads to a way to reclaim one's memory. So, does Killashandra want to remember everything? And can she, a private person, open herself up to another person? Once again, McCaffrey combines intriguing adventure and sf lore with well-developed characters who grow and change over the course of the story. For collections wherever the series has a following.
