From the Back Cover
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.See all Product Description

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.
Fantastic characters and storylines.
Read this and you will want to follow up with Pegasus in Flight and Pegasus in Space.
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.
Easily a 5* read.
