A DESTRUCTIVE SPECIES
The Hive acts as a single entity, relentlessly swarming the galaxy, endlessly propagating on every habitable world they encounter—destroying native populations in the process. They do not recognize any sentience but their own. They do not acknowledge any attempt to communicate with them. They do not understand they leave countless numbers of dead in their wake.

A FAMILY LEGACY

The Prime Talents of the Raven-Lyon clan—telepaths, teleporters, and telekinetics—have protected the Alliance from the Hive breeding contagion for years. Now a fleet orbits the alien homeworld to prevent them from leaving, and a Hive queen and her eggs are in captivity and quarantined. And unless the Raven-Lyons break the language barrier between Human and Hive, the Alliance may have no choice but to eliminate their entire race ( )

Quote:
“It must be an amazing mind-set, Afra thought, to consider one’s self the only being of worth in the galaxy. There had been Humans who had had such delusions. They had generally died because of them”
Review:
Lyon's Pride is the continuation of the story from the previous book, Damia's Children. It picks up exactly where the last book left off. Probably because the previous book just arbitrarily ended when it got to the proper word count and left the rest for this book.

This just had an amazingly slow start. Honestly, not much of note happened in the first SIXTY PERCENT of the book. It felt like I was just spinning around, waiting for something to actually happen. We kept covering over old ground and posing as if it was new ground. I was bored. I want to love these kids so much, but I am just dreadfully bored by them.

Ostensibly this is supposed to be dealing with the Hive. The Humans and Dini have to find out more information about the Hive. And they have to figure out what they are going to do when they find it. Both races have tried to communicate with the Hive, but the Hive don't even appear to notice other beings exist.

What Lyon's Pride is really about is managing resources and personnel. So much talking about who goes where, who ships what, how to ship what. It's so boring. It is also about arranging love interests, which personally I find cute but am growing a bit tired of after the second book in a row of this. Also it is about giving the kids some time off. A lot of talking about the kids having vacation time. So much book time.

Also holy hell they're drafting like 12 year olds into work now. What the crap, man. I thought it was bad when before. The kids would hit 16 and FT&T is like "welp, guess you're an adult now, time to have a whole shitload of responsibility and almost no time off!" Nope. Twelve year olds now. This is crazy. How much younger are they going to force these kids to work in the future??

Lyon's Pride kind of turned into a military space opera by the end. Which I kind of liked. However, this also had the same problem as the previous book. The book just kind of ends at the appropriate word count. No resolutions, no climax. It just..stops. ( )

Title: Lyon's Pride Series: Tower and the Hive Author: Anne McCaffrey Rating: 1 of 5 Stars Genre: SFF Pages: 336 Synopsis: The war against the insects continues and the Talents continue their spread. My Thoughts: Due to the inclusion and normalization of homosexuality, I will not be finishing this series. With that being said, I also think I'm done with McCaffrey. I know she won't be writing any more, obviously, but I'm tired of finding landmines like this and having to deal with it. I've read what I've wanted to of hers and now I'm done. " ( )

*Book source ~ Home library.

Laria, Thian, Rojer and Zara continue growing, maturing and working for FT&T as the main focus is on finding the remaining Hive spheres and restricting those Hivers that had populated other worlds to those worlds. It’s during his time on the Genesee that Rojer suffers a catastrophic loss and withdraws into himself. This brings The Rowan and Afra, Rojer’s grandmother and father, to the Genesee to search of him demanding explanations. When Rojer is found and sent to Deneb to heal, Thian takes over his position. The Rowan and Thian perform what becomes known as the Genesee ploy when they steal a Hive sphere orbiting a Hive world. Everything escalates after this incident.

Once again, there is a lot going on in the Talent Universe as Laria, Thian, Rojer, Zara and everyone else works to find the Hive spheres and to find the system most compatible with the Hivers sun, so they have an idea where the Hivers are going. They need to plot the universe and identify the planets the Hivers have colonized, those they bypassed and those they abandoned. Planets that have been abandoned need to be explored to see if they can be salvaged and planets that have been colonized need to have the spheres in orbit taken out so the Hivers can’t leave and ruin other planets. The Talents are instrumental in the space fleet traveling so far away from their home worlds. Without their teleportation and telekinesis no one would have been able to survive so far from supplies and reinforcements.

After Rojer’s loss, we find out more about the Mrdini. Laria is having a hard time on Clarf only because she’s a bit lonely for a male companion. Having everyone come home for vacation was a nice scene and watching Jeff, as Earth Prime, deal with non-talented military idiots is a treat to behold. As the rest of the descendants of The Rowan and Jeff Raven grow and mature they begin finding their own mates. Exploring and protecting the universe is no small undertaking and they are going to need all of the Talent they can get if they are going to do everything they want to do. All-in-all a great epic sci-fi/fantasy, even if it is coming to an end. ( )

My least favorite of the set. I started it but couldn't get interested enough to finish. ( )

During the course of the next few weeks, while Rojer waited for his older brother, Thian, to replace him on board the Genesee, he spent a great deal more time on the bridge than he had originally thought he would.
