Summary

The dramatic conclusion to the breathtaking saga of the children of Acorna and Aari.

Khorii, the rebellious daughter of Acorna, the near-mythic heroine of her people, has tried to follow in her mother's footsteps in this time of plague and terror. But the pressure on the courageous young woman to succeed is tremendous, and the legacy she is expected to fulfill is overwhelming.

The insidious enemy that has ravaged countless known worlds has left Khorii's illustrious parents too weak to oppose it. Now, as the deadly foe prepares to launch its devastating final assault, it falls to Acorna's children—Khorii and her newly discovered sister, Ariin—to halt the brutal attack once and for all. But victory may prove too difficult, elusive, and ultimately fragile—and even time itself may be conspiring against the daughters in their desperate battle to save their family . . . and their universe.

From Publishers Weekly

At the start of this readable light entry in McCaffrey and Scarborough's popular Acorna series (Acorna's Rebels, etc.), Acorna's long-lost daughter, Korii, and Korii's twin, Ariin, travel through time and space in search of the secret of the plague that's endangering galactic civilization. With them is their faithful cat, Khiindi, who turns out to be a good deal more than he seems. After plenty of stirring adventures, the twins find that the secret of the plague lies in the elder race known as the Ancestral Friends, in particular in one not-so-friendly Lord Odus. The time traveling is almost too easy, and the book isn't for newcomers despite the comprehensive glossary and notes, but series fans will appreciate the authors' genuine feeling for their human characters as well as for cats and dragons.
