I have read most if not all of Anne MaCaffrey's Pern series and a few of her short stories so I thought I'd start expanding into her other series I gather that this series might somehow link into the Tower and Hive series also on my to read list though this is a complete guess as my brain just decided to link a couple of things togetherI found this book a little strange to begin with but then as the story warmed up I really started to enjoy it McCaffrey basically uses the story to explore the positives negatives and practicalities of having Talents in the world The reactions of people the sort of double standards fear and lawsuits that are inevitable not to mention trying to be taken seriously So it gave me a lot to think about as well as being entertaining
