Product Description

Book Description

The first book in the Talent series. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

The first volume in the epic saga of the Talents of earth.

They were people whose gifts were unique.For years - centuries - they had not even understood just what they could do with their minds.They had sometimes become astrologers, clairvoyants, or healers, but their Talents were undeveloped and untrained.

Henry Darrow was the first to explore the huge wealth of psychic gifts hidden amongst mankind, and it was he who formed the first Parapsychic Centre where Talents could train and be used to revolutionise the world.But their powers set them apart, made them feared, then threatened by the un-Talented.And when dangerous freak 'wild' Talents began to wreak havoc in the outside world, it took all their combined Talented efforts to save themselves.

Format: Paperback
The book starts with an accident leading to scientific proof that psychic powers exist, allowing for the former "freaks" of the world to come out into the open. Anyone familiar with this author will not be surprised to hear the book contains all the excitement you might expect from Anne McCaffrey writing about people with "super powers".
However, this is no shallow tale of caped crusaders fighting all evil, but instead an intelligent look at the responsibilities of (for example) precognition and the effects such people could have on mankind. As so often, Ms McCaffrey uses a "Sci-fi" theme but in such a natural way that the people appear human so you can empathise with them.
A brilliant read and a brilliant series. Just breeze through from start to finish and lose yourself for a while, or spend more time considering the ideas suggested - either way you're almost guaranteed a great time.

There is only one word for this - AMAZING! Actually, some others I can think of are: brilliant, astonishing, gripping, enthralling, excellent, and un-put-down-able. Hang on, I don't think that last one is a word. Never mind. This book is all of these things. If you haven't read it, what are you waiting for??? Buy it now! You won't regret it!
It is a sci-fi book but not about aliens or robots or anything like that. It's about people, and it's just indescribably good.

Ready this years ago and have thoroughly enjoyed rereading these short stories which set up the Talented, the basis of The Rowan, Damia and other books of the series.

Fantastic characters and storylines.
Read this and you will want to follow up with Pegasus in Flight and Pegasus in Space.

Yet another good read from Anne McCaffery. This series is one of my more enjoyable reads, it allows you to experience what it would be like in that type of situation.

Quick service in providing book. Replacement for a copy that had given up the ghost! I wil probably have to buy new copies of the rest of the series shortly. I do wish they would reprint Anne McCaffrey's book in hardback, it would save me a fortune.
