Publisher's Summary

The exhilarating adventures of Anne McCaffrey's best selling Crystal Singer series continue with Killashandra, a story that mixes interplanetary political intrigue with passionate romance. In this installment, Killashandra Ree's crystal claim has been exhausted, forcing her to take a new assignment and leave her new lover back on their native Ballybran. She goes undercover on a distant, desolate planet, searching desperately for the crystal that will save her - and, quite possibly, the fate of the entire universe.

Good story but is abridged

Would you try another book from Anne McCaffrey and/or Adrienne Barbeau?

I like about anything by Anne McCaffrey and this is no exception.

What didn’t you like about Adrienne Barbeau’s performance?

This isn't about Adrienne's performance, which was quite good, but impacts the performance. The recording almost sounds like it was playing back through an old tinny AM radio.

What character would you cut from Killashandra?

All the characters are important.

Any additional comments?

Why is there no unabridged versions of the Crystal Singers books? Three hours touches the surface but there is so much more that is missing.

A story of love in the midst of political rebellion

I have read this book countless times and was really happy to find an audible version. I love the way that McCaffrey engages her audience's emotions while introducing fabulous places, odd names and technology which she manages to imbue with a normality which means that we accept this science fiction seamlessly. Killashandra is a feisty female lead and I would certainly recommend this book to teenaged girls, especially those who like music and adventure stories. The only thing which mars this rendition is the rather brutal abridgement which spoils the gentle pace of the book and the galloping vocal performance which sometimes makes the listener feel that there were orders to keep the performance down to 2and a half hours and that the actor was racing to finish.

abridged-takes away the depth

I love this book and read it over and over. I was looking forward to hearing it. So so sad that it has been abridged. it has taken away all depth and feeling from the story 😣
