Overview

This Halcyon Classics ebook is STAR BORN by acclaimed science fiction writer Andre Alice Norton.

When the oppressive global dictatorship of Pax took over Earth they put a stop to space exploration. Still, a few rebels escaped in the sleeper ships to found free new colonies -- or perish in the attempt. Those few colonists that reached inhabitable worlds were cut off for centuries, and in that isolation and freedom they developed the mysterious mental powers that ''civilization'' had all but destroyed.

This is the sequel to The Stars Are Ours! which is not avalible for Nook. The Stars Are Ours! was totally wonderful, another great Andre Norton book. Star Born is fairly easy to understand without reading the first book. The Stars Are Ours! and Star Born are also together in Star Flight, which is, unfortunately, unavalible for Nook. However, the library and Amazon are also good places to check.

I began reading Andre Norton books when I was in 4th or 5th grade. They addicted me to science fiction. This is one I still enjoy rereading. All of Norton's books are suitable for older children as well as adults. They contain no bad words, no sex (minimal love stories), and plenty of action and adventure.
