Power Play great syfy story a must read Anne McCaffrey is an author I always enjoy reading I really loved the way this series started although I felt it lost a bit of its appeal as the books went on.I do find it to be a very fascinating world with great characters but I am not sure I love the formula of the story telling But I still quite like it. This is the final book in the Petaybee trilogy, and my least favorite While there is a lot to like about this book and much of the world building is fun, there are too many things that feel off or downright bizarre The book starts off with Yana, Bunny, and Diego being carted off planet to testify at a hearing on the planet s sentience Since only young people or new residents can leave the planet for any length of time without dying there isn t much choice in who goes even though Yana is pregn This is the final book in the Petaybee trilogy, and my least favorite While there is a lot to like about this book and much of the world building is fun, there are too many things that feel off or downright bizarre The book starts off with Yana, Bunny, and Diego being carted off planet to testify at a hearing on the planet s sentience Since only young people or new residents can leave the planet for any length of time without dying there isn t much choice in who goes even though Yana is pregnant with a baby that might not be entirely human so there could be some risk.But they are assured that it won t take long, and they ll be back in a few weeks As usually life doesn t go as planned and there is one delay after another Before the hearing can actually happen the whole group are kidnapped and stolen away In the meantime down on the planet there are also problems Someone is sabotaging Petaybee by sending tons of people,than can be supported by the few resources on the frozen planet Spoilers The bad guys from earlier books Young Captain Fiske, and Mathew Luzon are behind all of the problems They are responsible for the Pirates kidnapping Yana and co, and also for the planet being overloaded by new visitors who are causing damage left and right The planet, of course, can deal with the interlopers and does but that leaves Yana to deal with the pirate who seems to think Sean will be able to ransom them with ore from the surface, even though that was the reason the planet rebelled against the company in book one The pirates are convinced to bring Yana home before she gets sicker than she already is and, predictably the planet has its way with them The dread alien pirate Louchard turns out to be the little human woman Dinah which was no surprise at all to be honest And one of the things that bothers me a lot is at the end she is let off entirely even though she s been pirating for years and broken who knows how many crimes Mathew and Captain Fiske are arrested for their part in the crime, but we don t see what happens to them.The book wraps up with the planet being accept as it is There s talk about how it s just a baby planet and it s still learning Apparently, it s able to communicate much better now But then there is a weird scene where it blows warm air up the pant s leg of the judge and it hits his crotch and he s relieved I had no clue what the point of that was at all Even though there was much mention about how the people on the planet didn t want any newfangled stuff modernizing their life in previous books there is much joy over all the prefab buildings they are given, and the modern plumbing, and a spaceship So, I guess they changed their minds about being modern There s mention that now lots of Petaybee natives are being welcomed home which I also didn t get because none of them had been forced to leave or barred from returning in the first place.Natives usually left to join the military and mostly returned when they were tired of traveling the universe and ready to settle down At least that was the understanding I had from pervious books The epilogue has Yana delivering healthy twins, which of course were predictably a boy and girl Easy, fast labor, no problem because the planet helps her and then it welcomes her children which are selkies like their dad So there were really no surprises, everything followed in predictable lines and it seemed like it had gone off canon from earlier books.It s still worth reading because as always McCaffrey has a great way with words and it s fun to catch up on the characters you like but it s definitely not the best in the series This is the 3rd book in the Petaybee series by Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Ann Scarborough The planet Petaybee was terraformed two hundreds years ago It is still an arctic world so it was forcibly settled by Inuit peoples from old Earth In this one Yanaba, Bunny and Diego travel to Gal 3 the largest space station in the galaxy There they hope to finally gain independence for Petaybe and it s peoples but they are kidnapped by a notorious pirate and held for ransom Things don t go as planned This is the 3rd book in the Petaybee series by Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Ann Scarborough The planet Petaybee was terraformed two hundreds years ago It is still an arctic world so it was forcibly settled by Inuit peoples from old Earth In this one Yanaba, Bunny and Diego travel to Gal 3 the largest space station in the galaxy There they hope to finally gain independence for Petaybe and it s peoples but they are kidnapped by a notorious pirate and held for ransom Things don t go as planned for the pirate s when they find out that the people of Petaybe have no way to pay any ransom The pirate s travel to Petaybe with their hostages and find that the planet has a mind of it s own This book is another good read in this series and I recommend it A great giftAnyone that likes stories that build on each other Anne McCaffrey was as master at this and her co writer close behind We lost a great writer when McCaffrey passed I hope to seeof than Pern series continued by her son Todd. I enjoy how the planet Petaybee demonstrates sentienceclearly in this conclusion to the trilogy The echoing and phosphorescence were clever communications Some of the story got a hit to hokey, however, to getstars in this rating. I raced through this final book as I did with the other two I haven t read books that quickly since I was in my teens It was exhilarating And also satisfying This is what happens when women collaborate and write Science Fiction. Nice world building, good characters The plot and writing were good Solid series, but I don t love it. I very much love this series This is 3rd in the trilogy The ending is great and yet there are options for a 4th book in my opinion Good reading from this author as always.
