Just as good as the original series: Petaybee

The story picks up several years after the original series left off but don't worry if you have not read the Petaybee series, it is a great ride either way! The plot stands on it's own with some elaborate twists. McCaffrey is still as Master at her craft! Ramirez is a full cast in himself.
