Fantasy. Fiction. Science Fiction. HTML:McCaffrey's world of the Talented is as vivid as that of Pern and its dragons.Publishers Weekly

When a freak accident furnishes solid scientific proof of paranormal mental abilities, the world reacts with suspicion and fear. How can ordinary people coexist with a minority able to read minds, heal with a touch, peer into the future, or move objects with a thought? How can anyone with such power be trusted not to abuse it? Harsh repression seems the only answer

Gifted with precognitive talent, Henry Darrow has other ideas, foreseeing a future in which the Talents are accepted for what they are and not what they can offer their fellow humans. But the road to that future will not be easy. Darrow and the powerful telepath Daffyd op Owen must win the public's trust while overcoming the threat of rogue Talents like Solange Boshe, a young girl so consumed with hatred that her thoughts can kill, and the singer known as Amalda, whose...

Interesting enough book.
McCaffrey always easy to read.
These were basically short stories and tended to end a little too abruptly for me.
I liked the politics and necessary manoeuvring but then they tended to end to swiftly. ( )

It's been a long time since I read this book, but it takes me back to high school when I first read it and the others in the series. Fun stuff. ( )
  fuzzipueo | Apr 24, 2022 |
I think I figured out what doesn't work for me from McCaffrey: her characters are flat as pancakes. They don't grow, the plot (if there is any) drives their actions/words rather than the other way around, they don't make sense. It is baffling that this book's blurb describes 5 important-sounding women in detail, promising their perspectives on how they shape the world of the Talents, but the whole story is told from the POV of 2 men. *throws hands up* ( )

This is the back story to a lot McCaffrey's 'talent' series. It is a good background and the story well sets the stage for later stories. ( )

Okay, that was actually more like third time read. The story is well developed and definitely in the Science Fiction genre. Good plot twists, good character development, good overall flow, and execution. Now I need to look into the next book which I really hadn't thought about. ( )

The slick pavement, oily with rain and motor lubricants that had dripped from the hundreds of ill-repaired vehicles utilizing the major north-south artery into Jerhattan, caused the accident.
