This book was given to me by the author in exchange for my honest review

As you can see from my reviews of Ms. Reher’s books, I love this series! :D

I've read the book in almost one sitting! Or, better I devoured it! It was just like watching a Star Treck movie: thrilling!

Here Nove is not the heroine, even if she and Ty make their appearance. Here the story is about their daughter Cyann. I'd say that the shift on next generation was great! I enjoyed it very, very much! Loved Cyann - she's great an

In this entry to the Targon series, focus shifts from the space warrior Nova Whiteside to her now-grown daughter. Cyann is less of a guns-blazing type girl than her mom, but is every bit as intelligent, insightful, and plain old fun to pull for, so although I went in expecting to want more than the glimpses we get of Nova, I wound up being more than happy to read about Cy and hoping that we'll see more books starring her.

This is the fourth of the Targon books to be written and falls well after t

If you like sci-fi, read this one. The Targon Tales don't get old as each volume is about a different stage of Nova Whiteside's life.

First paragraph
It took some careful maneuvering to finally free herself from a tangled bit of vegetation but, once loose, it was just a short and careful crawl across the surface of the swamp to reach her target. The massive, grey-skinned creature continued to feed contentedly, unaware of the latest parasite to climb up one of its two legs and onto its back.

Adventure and risk

I enjoyed this story the most of the series. What was lost was found and apocalypse was averted. Interesting character interaction and dialogue. Lots of aliens and romance.

Fine finally

Great story, I really appreciated the full circle of the storyline and great details without boring me. Will try Sethrans story I think.

This is by far the most mind-magey book in the series, and I was seriously struggling with my suspension of disbelief. I didn't like the vagueness of the many phenomena the protagonists encountered (unexplained plasma waves, keyholes, telepathy over vast distances). These books are not terribly well researched, very light on the science and heavy on the fiction. Nova is only in a minor role and her daughter Cyann lacks Nova's energy, sass and military training. As a scientist I don't feel the es ...more

I am a first generation Canadian currently and out of necessity residing on planet Earth (which, in the general and interplanetary scheme of things could REALLY use a catchier name, if you ask me. I mean, imagine heading past Proxima Centauri and someone asks you whence you came and you tell them "dirt". All theological implications aside, that just won't do.)
