Arrived promptly in excellent condition. Had read these books before in library editions, etc. Nice to have them all joined up to give the whole story. If you like these, also try Dinosaur Planet 1 and 2. These are a kind of prequel to the above. Great fun!

I loved all three of these books! This is truly an epic adventure that spans the entire universe and hundreds of years. I followed the adventures of Sassinak and Lunzie very eagerly. GREAT BOOKS!

Format: Audio Cassette
These stories with intertwined characters in the same universe are exceptionally well done. Pathos, fierce joy, vengeance, suspense, conspiracy; you name it; it's here! Wonderful job! Sassinak reminds me of a female navy pilot I met a few years ago in (of all places) Thule, Greenland. Smart, aggressive and competent- we hated each other for the first week.

A must-read trilogy!!! 29 Dec. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Death of Sleep and Sassinak are two of my favorite books. Sassinak and Lunzie are such great heroines. They join forces to destroy a conspiracy in Generation Warriors which is not as good as the other two books. For more about Sassinak and Lunzie and their adventures on the Planet Ireta, read Dinosaur Planet and Dinosaur Planet Survivors.

Warning: Three books in one 18 July 2006
By McQ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed reading this book. In fact, I've read it several times, but I wanted to warn people that it is actually a reprint of 3 separate books: The Death of Sleep, Sassinak, and Generation Warriors. That being said, I was glad I stumbled on this version first, because it meant I didn't have to run out to the store each time I finished one of the novels.

I especially liked Lunzie's storyline. She is cryogenically frozen and has to cope with re-learning how to exist in society. Consider the learning curve someone from the 1950's would have if they woke today. And that is only a 50 year jump. She was out for almost 100!

The plot in this and Dinosaur Planet overlap, but I had some trouble with the continuity between the two. I liked this version better. (Probably because I read it first.)

I recommend this to fans of Elizabeth Moon, David Weber and Lois McMaster Bujold. The science fiction enhances the story, rather than replacing it. Jody Lynn Nye can be a little too fantasy oriented in her science fiction (I'm thinking flying talking frogs(?) from one of the Ship Who Sang books), but she is much more serious and does a very good job on this one.

A great read! 25 Feb. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have read Anne McCaffery's books for years now and this one was one of her greats. Granted there are no dragons as her books usually have but don't let that stop you. One of the best books by her that I have ever read and I have many of hers from the Dragon Riders to Acorna and out of all those books, these three are the best read of all hers. I can't say enough how much I enjoyed reading this book. I believe that I've read it about 4 or 5 times now and it still can't put it down when I start it again. A dangerous book to be sure. Enjoy!

I can't see how you could hate this book! 11 Jan. 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This series is so great that I was able to read it all in 3 days! I have re-read it so many times I could almost tell you the plot by heart. I highly recommend this book to everyone who likes sci-fi and adventure.

Heinlein influence? 18 Sept. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Anyone besides me notice the similarities between "Sassinak" and "Citizen of the Galaxy" by Robert Heinlein? Thorby and Sassinak both become orphaned slaves at a young age, both are befriended by former members of the space navy, both are programmed with information to be disseminated only to certain designated individuals, under very defined conditions. I love McCaffrey's books, have for years, just wondering if I'm imagining things with this one...
