As director of the Jerhattan Parapsychic Center, telepath Rhyssa Owen coordinated the job assignments for psychically gifted Talents. And though she had her hands full dealing with the unreasonable demand for kinetics to work on the space platform that would be humankind's stepping-stone to the stars, she was always ready to welcome new Talents to the Center.
Feisty and streetwise, twelve-year-old Tirla used her extraordinary knack for languages to eke out a living in the Linear developments, where the poor struggled to make ends meet and children were conscripted or sold into menial work programs. Young Peter, paralyzed in a freak accident, hoped someday to get into space where zero gravity would enable him to function more easily. Both desperately needed help only other Talents could provide.
With the appearance in her life of one extraordinary man with no measurable Talent at all, Rhyssa suddenly found herself questioning everything she thought she knew about her people. And when two Talented children were discovered to have some very unusual -- and unexpected -- abilities, she realized that she would have to reassess the potential of all Talentkind...
In the first book To Ride Pegasus Henry Darrow's EEG shows wildly flunctuating alpha waves while in this book they're tracking the delta waves of the Talented. Oops.
I'm taking #1 Son of Avonar by Carol Berg to work with me tonight. I'll be starting #3 Pegasus In Space Tues. and it looks like I need to pick up Anne McCaffrey's Rowan series since I find it is the sequel series to her Pegasus books! I like these better than her Pern books.
