Killashandra by Anne McCaffrey
The book was an easy read. You find yourself working alongside this woman as she continues to work her craft. A very imaginative story that is well written and worth the read. A three part series makes it even more fun. Using ones voice in a new way and for a new purpose. Danger is part of the duty. Spend whatever time it takes to read this book and it is like listening to Mrs McCaffrey as she tells her story.
Publishers Weekly, 1985-10-25 This sequel to McCaffrey's Crystal Singer continues the story of Killashandra Ree, a failed musician whose perfect pitch has given her entree to the glamorous but dangerous profession of mining and cutting rare, valuable crystal. She is grateful for a new assignment that takes her off the oppressive crystal world of Ballybran, but when she arrives on Optheria to replace and tune the crystals of a famous organ, she steps into a new adventure. Abducted by the very subversives she had been trying to help, she eventually falls in love with one of her kidnappers and manages to uncover the Optherian Elders' subliminal brainwashing that had held the population captive and docile. Although the novel only comes alive during Killashandra's life in the islands, McCaffrey's many fans should enjoy this romantic adventure. Major ad/promo. December 2
