Flinx is on earth to hunt down classified information about the Meliorare Society, the sect of renegade eugenicists responsible for his telepathic gifts. To get into a top-secret installation, he uses his powers to charm one of the key security people so he can gain access to their AI program. However, the file with the information he's looking for has been taken, and he barely escapes.
In an effort to hunt down the file, Flinx and Pip end up on a dangerous trek across the galaxy into the heart of AAnn space. When their shuttle crashes on a desert planet, Flinx and the minidrag soon find themselves up against native dangers and a nest of reptilian AAnn soldiers. But that's only the beginning for Flinx, because before it's over he will discover an ancient mystery and face an old foe who may turn out to be his most dangerous enemy yet.
Reunion is the eighth novel in the series and it is less a complete book than a continuation of the story. It's clear that Foster has bigger things in mind for Flinx and Pip. The novel is a page-turner, with lots of action to keep things moving. Fans of the series will find revelations in the book that make Reunion a must-read. However, those new to the series will wonder why they would want to read about a hero who seems, at best, morally questionable based on his first actions in Reunion. A bigger problem still is that the entire book seems to be just a teaser for the ninth novel, and if it takes another five years to arrive, that's a long tease. --Kathie Huddleston --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Since it was next in the series, I had to read Reunion to see how the story progressed. Unfortunately, after I finished it I was still waiting for the story to progress. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Tony
I would recommend the Pip and Flinx books to any classic sci-fi fans. I would further recommend anything by Alan Dean Foster. He's one of my favorite authors.Published 11 months ago by Chandra Harwood
I'm usually pretty forgiving when it comes to fiction - I've read some pretty terrible stuff in my day - but I couldn't even make it halfway through this rush-job of plot holes. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Gwen W.
I liked this book because of what it reveals about Flinx's past and what new questions it brings up. Some of the descriptions I felt were too long, but the was very well written. Read morePublished on March 15, 2012 by Jwb52z
