Acorna's Rebels (Acorna)by Anne Mccaffrey
Synopses & Reviews
Beloved by millions of readers, Anne McCaffrey is one of science fiction's favorite authors. Writing with Nebula Award-winning author Elizabeth Ann Scarborough, she has created the bestselling Acorna series featuring the adventures of the brave unicorn girl.
Acorna's people, the Linyaari, have started to reclaim their homeworld from the ravages of the brutal alien Khleevi. But the expedition has unlocked a larger mystery about the origins of the Linyaari people — one that has led Aari, Acorna's beloved lifemate, into a dangerous journey through time and space. A journey from which Aari may never return.
Now acorna, joined by Captain Becker, Mac, Nadhari, and RK, sets off on a determined mission to save her beloved. But a forced crash landing brings the crew to the exotic jungle world of Makahomia, home of the mysterious Temple Cats. Beautiful and barbaric, Makahomia has been blockaded for years to protect itself — and the Federation.
Racing to save the Temple Cats from a deadly disease, Acorna uncovers a sinister plot to destroy the sacred felines and exploit Makahomia's people, an evil scheme that reaches out into the very depths of space.
While Nadhari confronts the demons of her childhood, Acorna must lead a small band of determined rebels to stop the conspiracy and unravel a dangerous mystery, a quest that takes them into the secret temples and hidden sanctuaries of that world. But within one sacred shrine Acorna discovers shocking information that may lead to Aari ... or to disaster.
