However, I forgive it a lot because of the fairly exciting story-line (survivalism mixed with war is really good stuff). But mostly because of the consequent non-bigotry policy on Botany. I loved that they didn't w ...more

The dropped survivors on Botany have come a long way from those first days when they had virtually nothing. They are living very well with many comforts of home and they are at the brink of ending the Eosi domination of several species and many planets and Kris Bjornson and Zainal are at the center of things. Making a good life on Botany isn’t enough for Zainal though. He intends to destroy the Eosi for enslaving his people for two thousand years and for enslaving o ...more

The plot moves FAST! The beginning moves a little slowly, to try to reorient users to what is going on and I found myself enjoying this part. It explained enough for me to understand and be invested in what was goin ...more
The alien Catteni invaded Earth and enslaved thousands of humans on the planet Botany, where they struggle to survive while colonizing the world for their overseers.

Abandoned on the planet Botany by their Catteni masters, a group of humans and other enslaved races now seeks to reclaim their worlds for themselves. This third installment of a series that includes Freedom's Landing (LJ 4/15/95) and Freedom's Choice (LJ 5/15/97) chronicles the stages of the war for liberation, from the theft of Catteni ships to the liberation of cargoes of slave laborers to a bold strike at the heart of the oppressor. McCaffrey excels as a storyteller and

What I found funny was that the story reminds me of The Swiss Family Robinson. We are stranded in a strange, unknown place? Thank goodness we have every kind of thing we could need and the people ...more
4.75 out of 5 I loved these three books they are compelling and starts your imagination working which to my mind is what a good book should do.
Dropped onto a strange planet with 3 or 4 different alien peoples plus one of the enemy, they have to survive or die.
fortunately for them the enemy turns out to be a friend and very informative and they go from surviving to flourishing.
A really great read
