O BOOK DESIGN BY JENNIFER ANN DADDIO In putting together the details required for a book, the author is some-times thrown out of his/her depth and seeks the help of experts in particular fields for advice and information. In this fourth of the Catteni/Freedom series, I required more knowledge of dentistry than my experience or memory could give me. Dr. Les Latner, DMS, Los Angeles, and A. M.

Anne Inez McCaffrey was an American born Irish writer. She is best known for her science fiction series known as the Dragonriders of Pern. She was born on the 1st April 1926 and passed on on 21st November 2011. She was an author who depicted alien creatures and new worlds. She is a complex figure who creates and recreates her fiction by drawing from life experiences.

But, as they left Camp Rock, Kris realized that last night both men-maybe unintentionally-had avoided discussing what would happen if the Mecho Makers appeared first. n. ut it struck her as unrealistic to think that everything mechanical went down with the close of the growing season. Surely there was some sort of supervisor, or superintendant or overseer on the planet? Maybe on one of the other continents? Nevertheless, some thing must be in overall charge.

Case in point: Freedom's Landing (Freedom Series: Book 1) by Anne McCaffrey. The Freedom Series (also called The Catteni Series) by Anne McCaffrey. Freedom's Landing (published 1995) Freedom's Choice (1996) Freedom's Challenge (1998) Freedom's Ransom (2002).

It's the dawning of a new age for mankind when the Catteni descend to Earth and easily overcome the Earth's population. Thousands are herded onto slave ships headed for the intergalactic auction block. Kris Bjornsen is captured in Denver on her way to her college classes and wakes up on the primitive planet Barevi. Courageous and resourceful, she manages a single-woman escape from the Catteni and is living in the wilds of the planet when she comes to the aid of a Catteni soldier pursued by his own ranks. Recaptured together, they join forces with other slaves to outwit their captors and a hostile planetary environment. Listeners will delight in this "against-the-odds" story of survival, ingenuity and romance. As her audience has come to expect of McCaffrey, she delivers a rich and intricate science fiction adventure in "Freedom's Landing", sure to win over even more listeners and add to her legions of fans.

I like a lot of Anne McCaffrey's works, and I think no one writes a better female protagonist than she does. Freedom's Landing is the first in the Freedom Series, but it's a bit confusing to me because years ago, the book seemed to be different or there was another book (was it Thorns of Barevi?) where Kristen, the main character, experienced the Catteni invasion of Denver. Apparently the series was re-written, but information about the Catteni I read years ago was missing (there was a lot of sex in the original, apparently written out, and more about the original invasion.) This book deals with a renegade Emassi (noble) Catteni and Kristen landing on a colonization planet and, with other kidnapped humans and aliens, surviving and creating a new society. Apparently, the Catteni seed new worlds with kidnapped "colonists" and take over planets with the survivors.

Despite my confusion at the story having changed, I soon got into the novel and enjoyed the development of technology and survival techniques by the various survivors. Some of it was a bit farfetched (they were able to create walkie-talkies from scrapped automated farm equipment) but over all, it was a fast-moving and exciting tale. It reminds me a bit of Robert Heinlein's "Starship Troopers" mixed with "Tunnel in the Sky".

McCaffrey wrote many great series. I'm indifferent to the Dragon series, but love her Crystal Singer books and this series is almost as good. If you like action in sci-fi, you'll enjoy this

I believe this book was first published in 1995. Reading it, I was reminded at various times of James Dashner's Maze Runner, TV's "The Dome" and Lindsay Buroker's Fallen Empire Series. It was interesting and held my attention. A few minor negatives... (1) The things Kris said were sometimes hokey/dated. (2) I couldn't quite fathom why Kris was so loyal to Zainal so quickly, especially after what he said that caused her to knock him out and try to get rid of him. It seemed like she should be more wary. (3) The progress made by the settlers was incredibly rapid and almost cutesy sometimes.

I'm not sure I will continue with this series after reading reviews of the next three books. But, I do not feel like the first book was a waste of time. I highly recommend Lindsey Buroker's books to those who enjoyed this book and the main character Kris.

Kris Bjornsen was going about her day at Denver University when the Catteni attacked Earth. Scooping up citizens by the thousands from 50 cities around the world the Catteni ships took their new slaves to Barevi, a planet used by the Catteni for R&R and a depot for their purloined goods from around the galaxy. Kris manages to escape her new `master' and is hiding out in the wilds of Barevi when a chance encounter with Zainal, an Emassi (or high ranking Catteni), changes her life yet again. Gassed during a riot she and Zainal are dumped onto an empty world the Catteni have chosen for the aliens to colonize. Terrans make up the largest group, but there are also Deski, Rugarians, Turs and Ilginish. Fortunately for them, they have Zainal who knows a little bit about the initial survey of the planet. Unfortunately for Zainal, no one likes Catteni and there's a large consensus to kill him. Chuck Mitford, a retired Marine, takes charge of the motley crew and makes a command decision to keep Zainal alive. For now. With only knives, hatchets, blankets and ration bars, they have to work together to survive on an alien planet.

I love, love, love this book. There's something about survival books I really like and I think it's because I put myself into that situation and wonder how well I'd do. But this isn't just any old survival situation on Earth where you can hope to eventually find civilization. Cell phones, a grocery store, a bed, hot water, a toothbrush. Forget it. This is an alien planet. Completely unknown. What is safe to eat? What will kill me? Are there dangerous animals? Is there shelter? What kind of weather is to be expected and how long are the days? Or nights? Back to basics in a way that's hard to do on Earth anymore.

I've read this book (and the whole series) several times over the years and I've enjoyed it each and every time. So much to do and so much to explore with people and aliens who are strangers. The book mostly follows Kris as she survives on the planet they name Bounty and once again it kept me enthralled the whole time. The world is unique, the writing is wonderful and I love the characters. There is action, mystery, humor and even romance. All-in-all an excellent sci-fi adventure.

I feel like the sample I read was a bait and switch. I liked the sample, so I spent eight dollars of my hard-earned money for a great story that immediately turned into pure junk.

Why would anyone want to read about a main character who is so stupid that, when the Cattini tried to put his hands on her, she knocks him out, but her little pea brain decides to be nice and fly him back to the city she escaped from? And she doesn't just drop him off outside the city, oh no, that would show some common sense, she flies into the city so she can drop him off in a nice park. Then she is captured.

Anne McCaffery is one of my all-time favorite authors, and this is my second favorite series of hers--after the Dragonriders of Pern, of course. I have the first three books in hardback and have reread them three or four times over the years. So I was happy to stumble across the 1.99 sale of this ebook. My books are boxed up and in storage right now, so I bought the ebook and then did so with the rest of the series, reading all four over two days. (Although see my review of book four, which isn't as positive as this one.)

A strong female lead in a modern day--aliens-attack-Earth castaway survival story. Unlike The Martian, where an individual must survive a hostile planet, this book is about the survival of a group of humans and aliens. The first book is the best in the series. Enjoy!
