An organization of telepaths help transport goods from planet to planet with the help of their minds. When a hostile race of aliens try to invade, the telepaths must use their talents to save the human race. This series from Anne McCaffrey has always been a favorite of mine and I've been in the mood to reread the books again.

Since it has been several years since I read these, I found there was quite a bit I had forgotten. Her style of writing is a bit choppier than I remembered and there were certainly several holes in the story. Not actually too surprising since that's a common problem with scifi or fantasy. It's also true that when you read a book for the second time, you sometimes tend to be a little more analytical. I had expected to give this book at least 4 stars but ended up with only 3 stars. I still enjoyed the basic outline of the story very much, however, just struggled a little with the descriptions and writing style.

This is the first of five books.
