I've enjoyed everything I've read by Kathy Tyers so I had high hopes for this story, and she didn't let me down. I did get lost a couple of times with all of the different odd names in the story and who's who, but as I got deeper into the story it all came together.

Our main character, LLyn, was wonderfully crafted. I felt for her and wanted so much for her to figure out her place in this world - but I wasn't too happy with the major decision she made when she did get her independence! She later

One Mind’s Eye review

I asked Adam Graham to buy me One Mind’s Eye by Kathy Tyers for my last birthday for a couple reasons. One was, at the time, it was priced higher than I was comfortable spending on an ebook for an ordinary occasion. The second was the title reminded me of an old title of one of my books and the plot line included the use of artificial reality, as she calls it.

It took me a little while to thoroughly enmesh myself in the storyworld of this book, but once I did I found myself eagerly anticipating each reading. It was fascinating reading this book having already read Tyers' Firebird books.

I choose not to rate this one just yet, because I read it back in middle school. Ah, for the good 'ole days when Mom worked at B&N and would bring home the catalog copies of books... That's how I got this one, anyway. Well, I remember thoroughly enjoying it as an early teen, which makes me want to read it again before rating.

Competently written account of inter-species conflict with an intelligent, parasitic form. Rather spiritual in some ways. The protagonist is a young woman struggling for self-determination and freedom from an overbearing caregiver.

Recommended for teen+. No harsh language, etc.

A complicated world, The scope a bit too large for one book. Ender, Pod People, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Stargate all rolled into one novel. Whew. Not for the faint of heart but worth the time.

This was a unique combination of science fiction and faith. It was a good adventure and love story. The alien culture was interesting.
