Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

McCaffrey (the Pern series) and Scarborough (The Healer's War) offer another readable, lightweight cross between fantasy and SF in their latest novel about Acorna, the Unicorn Girl. A member of the Linyaari, a humanoid race with horns in the middle of their foreheads, Acorna continues to hunt for her beloved life-mate, Aari, who disappeared in Acorna's Search (2002). She travels aboard the starship Condor to the planet Makahomia, which she finds in the grip of a plague killing the sacred Temple cats. Acorna fights a desperate rearguard action against the plague with her horn's healing power, but the mystery clearly lies deeper. With the aid of both Condor shipmates, who include the Temple cat Roadkill (aka RK), and local Makahomians, among them shape-changing priests who can turn into cats, Acorna strives to prevent disaster. She ends up somewhat closer to Aari's trail through space and time, but clearly with several books worth of adventures to go before she reaches him. While it's not up to the highest level of either author's work, this installment will certainly engage long-time readers of the series. And don't overlook its being a feast for cat lovers!

Format: Hardcover
Acorna's Rebels is the sixth novel in the Acorna series, following Acorna's Search. In the previous volume, Acorna has found a hidden city on Vhiliinyar where she was transported to the past. While she was away, her mate Aari has also traveled back in time searching for her and was still gone when she returned to the present.
In this novel, Acorna is spending her time refining and re-refining the design for restoration of Vhiliinyar while waiting for Aari to return. Jonas and Roadkill, the Makahomian temple cat, convince her to relax a little and accompany them back to the Moon of Opportunity to visit their friends. Once there, Hafiz talks Acorna into visiting Nirii as an emissary of the Linyaari to solicit additional help in restoring Vhiliinyar and, incidentally, to take the Wats (unicorn hunters from ancient times) away from his wife, Karina. They also persuade Nadhari to go along to provide security.
While enroute to Nirii in Condor, Jonas' conglomerate of a ship, RK bumps the warp controls and sends them to an unexpected destination. In the emergency, the warp computer and long range communicator have been rendered inoperative and they are forced to send out a mayday signal. They are rescued by an agricultural implements saleman, Scaradine MacDonald, who tows them to the nearest repair yard with his tractor beam. By some odd chance, this yard is located on Nadhari's home planet, Makahomia, and there they are introduced to Nadhari's cousin, Mulzar Edo Kando sach Pilau dom Mog-Gim, Temporal Ruler of the City of Hassim and the Mog-Dim Plateau. Nadhari is not very pleased to see her cousin and subsequent events show that he is not very popular with his subjects either.

Format: Hardcover
I've read all of the Acorna novels so far, and this is one of the most interesting. Acorna lands on Nadhari's home planet after a little technical difficulty with the Condor (courtasy of RK). While there, she tries to help the holy cats that have fallen ill due to a deadly disease and ends up getting tangled in a political plot to rule the planet.
The atmosphere and description of Makahomia reminds me of Southeast Asia, blended together with a touch of Arabia/Egypt and even the Amazons. It gaves the novel an exotic feeling, a feeling that can't be found in metalic space ships, the rich and poor cities of Kezet, and the slightly Medival European styled narhii-Vhiliinyar of previous books. The plot line itself was interesting and had a nice twist to it, espically with the Makahomian religion and the morphing cat-people. The Wats and RK are probably the most comical, with their antics and "out-dated" believes. The only things i have a problem with is the villan and the ending battle. Althought the villan (as always) is an over egotistical maniac who's very cunning, he's just not willy enough to defeat the protagonist and in this novel, seems to lose his touch as the story progresses. The final battle was anticlimatic, since it happened so quickly.

Format: Hardcover
Acorna's rebels left me feeling disappointed. I really enjoyed the first couple Acorna books, but the last few haven't been as great.
To be honest, by the time I got this one, I had nearly forgotten all that happened in the last two books before. It took me a few chapters to remember where we had left off.
Okay, my main problem was the storyline became very shallow. All the difficulties and emergencies had easy solutions, no one had any trouble with finding them or carring them out.
Also, where's Aari? And what is happening with the others that we've been following for books now? We spent the entire time with Acorna, with no word whatsoever on anything else that's happening. In the beginning Acorna is working on rebuilding her planet, but that is quickly pushed aside in the story, and not returned to. Surely the work would be at least an interesting sidenote?
In the end, everything just seemed too pat, too easy. I won't spoil the ending, but it left me hanging too much for me to have enjoyed it.
So, to be fair, there's nothing badly wrong with this book, as it stands by itself. As a novel, alone, I think it deserved 3 stars. It's only when you compare this book to earlier ones from the series that you realize that, although it's good, the first few were far, far better.

Format: Hardcover
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 an 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.
