Not one of McCaffrey's better series ( )
  willowcove | Feb 19, 2009 |
A book that you'd get lost in unless you've read the rest of the series.

When people start disappearing as they explore their destroyed world to prepare for terraforming, people start disappearing and when they start looking they discover an underground city.

Readable but not impressive. It wasn't a book that would urge me to continue reading the series. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0380818469, Mass Market Paperback)

The homeworld Acorna has never known was horribly scarred in the brutal attack by the cold-blooded Khleevi, but the Linyaari -- the unicorn girl's gentle, spiritual race -- live on. Now is the time for healing and rebuilding, for restoring the natural beauty corrupted by the savage insectile oppressors. But Acorna's Linyaari friends and colleagues begin mysteriously disappearing soon after work gets under way, among them her beloved Aari. And her desperate search for answers will lead courageous Acorna to a shocking discovery beneath the surface of her people's world -- and deep into the realms of limitless space, where the truth of the origin of everything awaits.

"Acorna's people, the Linyaari, are once more without a home. And though they survived the brutal attack from the cold-blooded Khleevi, the battle left their beloved planet, narhii-Vhiliinyar, horribly scarred. Yet all is not lost. While the damage is terrible, hope still lives deep within this gentle, spiritual people. Banding together, they will rebuild both narhii-Vhiliinyar and the original Linyaari homeworld, Vhiliinyar, restoring them to the natural beauty and vitality they enjoyed before the time of the Khleevi." "Acorna, too, is eager to help reconstruct the homeworld of which she's long dreamed. Though she was abandoned in space as a baby, then rescued and raised by gruff human asteroid miners, the beautiful young woman with the "funny" feet and hands and gleaming horn has made peace with her heritage and is now eager to turn her extraordinary healing powers to re-create the Linyaari's world with her lifemate, Aari, her human "uncles, " and her friends." "But just as work begins to get under way something goes terribly wrong. Linyaari begin mysteriously disappearing - including Aari and his sister, Maati. Is it the Khleevi or some other unknown enemy?" "Searching for her beloved, Acorna makes an even more astonishing discovery: the remains of a subterranean world that belonged to the legendary Friends - a technologically advanced society that populated Vhiliinyar before the time of the Ancestors. What happened to the Friends? Where did they go and why has so little remained of their society? Acorna knows that to save Aari and the rest of the missing Linyaari she must begin to seek the answers - a quest that will once again take her deep into the realms of limitless space to find the origins of her people."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
