Acorna

Book Synopsis Acorna by : Anne McCaffrey

"Something's Alive In There!" She was just a little girl, with a tiny horn in the center of her forehead, funny-looking feet, beautiful silver hair, and several curious powers: the ability to purify air and water, make plants grow, and heal scars and broken bones. A trio of grizzled prospectors found her drifting in an escape pod amid the asteroids, adopted her, and took her to the bandit planet Kezdet, a place where no questions are asked and the girl might grow up free. But Kezdet has its own dark secret. The prosperity of the planet is based on a hideous trade in child slave labor, administered by "The Piper" -- a mystery man with special plans for Acorna and her powers. But free little girls have a way of growing into freedom-loving young women, and Acorna has special plans all her own. . .

Book Synopsis Acorna's Triumph by : Anne McCaffrey

The unicorn girl must rescue her beloved and defeat a dreaded alien menace in this action-packed conclusion to the fantasy space opera series. Beloved by millions of readers, Anne McCaffrey is one of science fiction’s favorite authors. Writing with award-winning author Elizabeth Ann Scarborough, she has created the bestselling Acorna series, focusing on the adventures of the brave unicorn girl. With Acorna’s Triumph, they turn to the dramatic conclusion of the series, as Acorna faces her most difficult challenge ever. She has defeated slavers, a deadly international conspiracy, and the vicious alien Khleevi, only to endure the loss of her beloved Aari, distant in both time and space. Now, finally, Aari has returned, and together they can finish rebuilding their home world. But Aari is oddly changed, to the point where he barely remembers Acorna—much less their love—and his actions grow more and more sinister. . . . As Acorna tries to stop a vicious criminal from destroying innocents, a new complication arises. Sensing the Linyaari weakness, the deadly Khleevi return, determined to take back the planet—for good. In this dark time, it will take all the unicorn girl’s courage and determination to rescue Aari and stop the alien menace once and for all. Praise for Acorna’s Triumph “McCaffrey and Scarborough’s finale to the charming Acorna saga will please the two authors’ many fans and lovers of horses and cats generally. . . . A fitting coda to the series. Both Acorna and Aari and their creators can ride off into the starlight with clear consciences.” —Publishers Weekly “This coda to McCaffrey’s popular series packs plenty of action into 320 pages.” —Booklist “I would recommend this as great read for anyone that is interested in time travel and fantasy. Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Scarborough have not only hit a home run but cleared the bases with this novel.” —SFRevu

Acorna's World

Book Synopsis Acorna's World by : Anne McCaffrey

“Good spacefaring fun” as the Unicorn Girl returns in her fourth adventure from the New York Times–bestselling authors of Acorna’s People (Publishers Weekly). Acorna, the “unicorn girl” has made peace with her Linyaari past, and aboard the interplanetary salvage vessel Condor she is finally free. But dread overtakes her when a distress signal summons Acorna and her companions to a nearby planet. For among the myriad wonders of this world of sentient plants and intoxicating perfumes are unmistakable signs that everything Acorna holds dear is in peril. A promise of world-shattering devastation is in the celestial winds—and impending catastrophe at the claws of the cold-blooded insectile race that seeks to eradicate all Linyaari and human life from the galaxy . . . the Khleevi! Praise for the Acorna series “McCaffrey and Ball have created a magical alien in this fantasy/science fiction story.” —Library Journal “Combining colorful characterizations, lots of fast-paced action, and a decided sense of menace . . . this is entertaining fare, indeed, for sf fans.” —Booklist
