Back cover copy

Peter Reidinger was the most brilliant and powerful telepath and telekinetic yet discovered on earth. He was also barely fifteen years old and a paraplegic who 'moved' his body through kinesis. When the telepaths of earth suspected a plot to take over Padrugoi, the newly manned space station, they realised they needed his unique gifts to foil the insane plans of Barchenka, the space construction manager, but even they didn't realise how strong were his abilities to 'read' the minds of those about him and move heavy loads over vast distances. As his career progressed, so his talents increased beyond the dreams of those trying to reach out into space. Peter Reidinger was going to be the salvation of man's exploration of the stars. And even as he became the most important man on earth, so his friendship with the tiny orphan girl found in the floods of Bangladesh grew and flourished. For Amariyah too had psychic gifts which no-one, at first, could define. But these 'special' people were constantly at risk - hated and feared by the avaricious, the evil and the ignorant, whose constant ambition was to destroy Peter Reidinger and those like him. The story of the Talents of Earth was begun in To Ride Pegasus and Pegasus in Flight, and the Talent legend is taken forward in time in Anne McCaffrey's remarkable Tower and the Hive sequence.show more
