Publisher's Summary

The beautiful woman called The Rowan was the most powerful telepath on all the planets of the Alliance - until the birth of her daughter, Damia. Damia and her husband, Afra Lyon, were the most extraordinary team of telepaths the Alliance had ever seen - until the powers of their children began to emerge.Now the combined power of all these generations, especially the unique abilities of the younger Lyon clan, is needed to face once and for all the threat of the alien Hivers. The human worlds see themselves as peaceful, and traditionally they have used deadly force only in self-defense, but now the time has come to take the battle with the Hivers out into space. A fleet of starships, with the powerful Lyon clan as its leaders, is sent into Hiver territory. Their mission: seek and destroy the Hiver threat that is lurking at the edges of known space.

A whole lot of fun

Loved it as I have all of the late great Anne McAffrey works. Even her worst are better than some authors best.

A Great End to a Story

I first discovered Anne McCaffrey in the early 70's. If you like Sci-Fi and you haven't discovered Anne McCaffrey, then you have to give her a try. I was given the begining of her "Dragonriders of Pern" series and have been hooked on her since. From what I understand, that was the second time around for new readers to Anne McCaffrey. Now with audible books, I think it is time for the third round to discover her. She creates wonderful planets, people, and storylines.

With this book, "The Rowan" series comes to an end and it is a series your really need to listen to in order to be able to follow the entire storyline and watch as her characters develope and grow. Lyon's Pride is about the third generation of talented people who help to save the entire galaxy. But it's the story of how each gets to that point that makes this well worth listening to. The only down side to this series is the narrator. I could have wished for some one else to have narrated this series, but if you can get past that and just listen to the storyline, then I think you will like this series as much as I have.
