REVIEW

"Fun interstellar conspiracy tale"

Acorna listens to any information that would lead to her finding her missing mate Aari who vanished in ACORNA'S SEARCH. However, no clues have surfaced leaving the Linyari concerned with worry that reflects in her brow even with the unicorn horn in the middle of her forehead. Captain Becker, CEO of Becker Interplanetary Recycling and Salvage Enterprises, persuades Acorna to accompany him on his ship Condor leaving the terraforming of her planet Vhiliinyar for Makahomia, home to First Mate RK.

On Makahomia, the crew finds a deadly plague killing RK's peers, the sacred Temple cats. Acorna uses the healing prowess of her horn to stop the deadly disease before devastation occurs. However, Acorna and her allies soon discover a malevolent collusion of epic proportions that stretch time and space and could lead to Aari or death for herself, her friends, and multitudes of sentient beings crossing various species.

ACORNA'S REBELS will provide two things to fans of the series. First, readers will relish the heroine's latest action-packed adventures. Second it appears that the reunion is several tomes into the future. The story line is fun though simplistic even with a interstellar conspiracy to propel it forward. Acorna remains a troubled brave lead character and the support cast add depth. However, this tale provides little new except perhaps some insight into the world of RK and is mostly for long time fans of the series or either author.

SUMMARY

The Further Adventures of the Unicorn Girl

Acorna's people, the Linyaari, have begun reclaiming their homeworld from the ravages of the brutal Khleevi. But the first wave of explorers has unlocked a larger mystery about the origins of the Linyaari -- one that has led Aari, Acorna's beloved lifemate, on a dangerous journey from which he may never return.

Setting off on a quest to find Aari, Acorna and her friends -- Captain Becker, Mac, Nadhari, and RK -- are forced to crash land on the beautiful and barbaric exotic jungle world of Makahomia, home of the mysterious Temple Cats. But an evil scheme threatens to destroy the sacred felines. To save the cats, Acorna will lead a band of rebels on a journey into Makahomia's temples and hidden sanctuaries.

And there, within one sacred shrine, she will discover shocking information that could lead to Aari . . .or to disaster.
