Publisher's Summary

It is difficult growing up in the shadow of heroes revered throughout the galaxy. But Khorii became a hero in her own right as she fought to save the universe from a mysterious, deadly plague that not even the healing powers of the Linyaari could stop. Now, confined with the rest of the survivors on Paloduro, it seems as if Khorii and her friends may be able to stem the tide of death and disease. However, ominous signs indicate that the epidemic is only beginning, as old enemies reemerge and a shocking family secret is revealed. With the aid of her android "brother", Khorii must foil the deadly pestilence before a covert mission to cripple the entire star system is catastrophically complete.

a bit disappointing

I have loved most of the books written by Anne McCaffrey, but this one didn't live up to my expectations.

For one thing, I needed notes to try to keep up with the multiple characters, places, ships, etc. There are also several sub-plots that are left hanging until the next book or two.

I also felt the story jumped around in locations and I found it hard keeping track of the separate stories within the story.
