"Great entry in a strong running fantasy series"
Khorii, the daughter of Acorna and Aari, is on her first
long space faring voyage and hopes for a little excitement.
She gets more than she bargained for when a virulent plague
sweeps the human galaxy killing millions and her parents
are asked to use their healing abilities to save lives.
They agree to go to a planet where they are desperately
needed while their daughter visits Maganos Moonbase where
she makes friends with human youngsters as well as the
young water dwelling Poopuus children.
When the plague comes to the Poopuus world, the youngsters
beg Khorii to go there and save their parent with her horn
on the forehead that heals. She agrees to go and is
accompanied by some students, a teacher, her cyborg friend
and her sentient cat. She saves the people and the planet
by letting the properties of the horn heal the people and
cleanse the water. She then meets up with her parents but
it is not a happy reunion. In order to help Aari and
Acorna, Khorii must track the origins of the man-made
plague and find an antidote that will help her family.
FIRST WARNING continues the adventures of Acorna and her
family but Khorii is the main protagonist as she comes into
her psychic powers and matures into a person willing to
heal whole planets and expose herself to danger to keep
those she cares closest to safe. The authors give as much
attention to the characterizations as they do to the action
scenes making FIRST WARNING a great entry in a strong
running fantasy series.
