Acorna's Children: Third Watch Summary

Acorna's Children: Third Watch by Anne McCaffrey

Khorii, the rebellious daughter of the near-mythic Acorna and her lifemate, Aari, has followed in Acorna's footsteps leading their people from danger, but the pressure to succeed and fulfill a legacy is tremendous. For the deadly foe that has ravaged the known worlds and weakened even her famous parents has launched its final assault, and only Khorii and her newly discovered sister, Ariin, are able to stop the brutal attack. But success is elusive, and fragile, and even time itself may not be enough to help their desperate quest to save their family...much less the universe.

Acorna's Children: Third Watch Reviews

"Khorii is definitely a chip off the old horn.Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Ann Scarborough are experts at being able to draw their readers into quite a complex and already well-established world, without making too many narrative demands with regard to the previous books. Their style is, as always, eminently readable" * SFX *
"Combining colourful characterizations, lots of fast-paced action, and a decided sense of menace...this is entertaining fare indeed" * Booklist (on the Acorna series) *
"Demonstrates the storytelling expertise of co-authors McCaffrey and Scarborough. Old and new characters, exotic alien races, and unique methods of problem-solving make this a good choice" * Library Journal *
"Spirited...Fantasy fans of all ages should go for this one" * Publishers Weekly *
"A felicitous combination of authors" * Kirkus Reviews *
