A LEGENDARY FAMILY For generations, the descendants of the powerful telepath known as The Rowan have used their talents to benefit humanity. As human civilization reached out to colonize the stars, the family led Earth to ally itself with the peaceful alien Mrdini. Together, the two races have held back the predatory Hivers, who once decimated entire worlds. THE NEW ORDER But there are factions on Earth who resent the power the family has accumulated. Now, with their goals of peace and prosperity so close at hand, The Rowans descendants face the looming destruction of all they have suffered to achieve

Bk1 of this weeks #readathons is finished! It‘s bittersweet rereading this series, knowing that there‘ll never be another adventure in the world of the “Talents”. There‘s so much potential for more stories it‘s sad it‘ll go unfulfilled. A lovely sci-fi series for people who like characters as much as setting.🚀 #HSreadathon #24B4Monday #SummersEndReadathon

Andrew65 Think I need to explore this series. Going brilliantly! 👏👏👏 3mo
Clwojick Great review! Even though I‘m generally not huge on sci-fi, I‘m intrigued. ☺️ 3mo

Ok! I‘m officially kicking off this week/end of readathons with the last half of the 5th & final book in McCaffreys The Tower And The Hive series. I‘m very much enjoying my reread of her books, I might pick up her Pern series at some point during this week as well. How are you doing? Are you participating as well & if so, have you started yet? What are you planning on reading? #HSreadathon #SummersEndReadathon #24B4Monday

Yeah, I know it‘s 6.30am in the morning here in Sydney, but anytime is ice cream time right? Isn‘t that one of the perks of being an adult?! This is a Connoisseurs Native Collection, with Macadamias crusted in a lemon myrtle sugar plus a swirling of an Australian finger lime & ginger sauce in a vanilla bean ice cream. It was soooo good! Paired with the concluding novel of The Tower And The Hive series, which is also very good.🍋🌰🍨 #HSreadathon

sherryvdh Ice cream for breakfast is absolutely healthy. There's apparently research to back it up. 😁 https://home.remedydaily.com/2017/04/25/study-says-eating-ice-cream-for-breakfas... 3mo
wanderinglynn I am totally on board with ice cream in the morning. Ice cream is always a good idea. 3mo

A nice wrap up of this series. We get to see the HEAs of the Gwyn-Raven-Lyon clan. There are political difficulties, ethical questions, & even an assassination attempt. Love, friendship, & of course the question of what to to about Hivers. I like the way this wraps up the series. There‘s one storyline I find a bit questionable but it‘s questionable in a hindsight is 20/20 way. This series still has all the throwback feels for me & I love it.

JazzFeathers Ah, those 1980s/1990s fantasy covers! 😍 3mo
Redjewel_7734 @JazzFeathers I know, right! They‘re a special kind of fabulous 😂 3mo

#90sInJuly #day5 #AliensExist Anne McCaffrey is one of my all time favourite writers, her Pern series, The Ship Who Sang, Doon & this one, The Tower & The Hive series which starts with The Rowan, are some of the best SciFi ever written. The aliens in this series are the destructive Hivers, bug-like aliens, hell bent on wiping out other species so they can colonize planets, & the friendly Mrdini, who ally with humans against the Hivers.

Bk5 & the last in The Tower And The Hive series is just as interesting & exciting as the previous 4.The world McCaffrey has built in these stories is so complex & compelling that it's sad to think that this will be the last one ever written.I so wanted the story to continue, the world of Prime Talents, Mrdinis, Hiver Spheres & the Star League deserves more than just 5 books. More of Damia,Afra,the Rowan & the entire Gwyn-Raven-Lyon clan is better.

ReadingOver50 Love Anne MacCaffrey ❤️😍❤️ 3y

#LitsyPartyOfOne This is my pathetic, sad attempt at my party. The hubby had to go away again & it's been too hot for me to even attempt to leave the house, & the weather has made my illness flare.So I'm hiding in my dark bedroom, in my electric bed with my aircon, fan & book. I don't have party food, decorations or pretty pjs, I have herbal tea, hydralite ice blocks & a cold washer for my forehead. This is what a true introverts party looks like!

josie281 It's perfect. You hide from the heat! 3y
