Overview

STAR BORN......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. 180 Pages of suspense.

• This volume includes a “Detailed Biography” of our author, Andre Norton.

When Raf Kurbi's Terran spaceship burst into unexplored skies of the far planet Astra and was immediately made welcome by the natives of a once-mighty metropolis, Kurbi was unaware of three vital things:

One... was that Astra already harbored an Earth colony—descended from refugees from the world of the previous century.

Two... was that these men and women were facing the greatest danger of their existence from a new outburst of the inhuman fiends who had once tyrannized Astra.

Three... was that the natives who were buying Kurbi's science know-how were those very fiends—and their intentions were implacably deadly for all humans, whether Earth born or STAR BORN.

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.
