    An excellent book to show one does bounce back.

    I loved the book, I first read it at my schools Library and I fell in love with the character Killashandra. Heart broken about her carrer as a opera star, she goes off world and finds that as a crystal singer she has an ability and is glad for the school. The ending has a tasty and saucy way and one can do only but love it.

    I Also Recommend:

    One of McCaffrey's Most Entertaining Series

    This book by Anne McCaffrey isn't as well-known as her Pern books, but it is just as entertaining as any. I like the imaginative premise: this involves singers who act as miners, not entertainers. Killasandra herself aspired to be that other kind of singer at one point--its interesting to see her rebuild herself here; she's not all that likable at first, but she grows through this tale. One of McCaffrey's greatest strengths is her world-building, which shows off to advantage here as she creates another original and engrossing world whose intricacies are welded into the story and this is as much romance--an appealing one--as science fiction.

    The same old song and dance. . . .

    How many times can you write the same story and actually get people to read it? In this author's case, a lot. I was about ready to give up entirely on Anne when I thought I'd give her one last shot. I picked up the Crystal Singer and found the same carbon copy female lead character that just seems to turn the universe on it's ear and make every thing all warm and good by the time the back cover falls closed. I'd rather watch a soap opera, thank you very much. This Mary Sue approach to writing gets very old very quickly, which is sad, because this author has some very interesting story lines. It's just a pity that her characters are the same people, over and over and over and over again.

    AN EXCELLENT BOOK

    Killashandra Ree finds her life derailed. For her learning to Sing Crystal heals her wounds of her failed opera career. This book will flow from page to page. You will find yourself thinking about Killashandra and impationaly waiting to find time to read to the end. McCaffery gives a new charater to love after the her Pern series.
