    1. The first book was almost magical people and animals living in harmony with their world Now reality begins to creep in, through the greed and selfishness of people who prefer to manipulate others and gather to themselves than they need, and Peytabee won t stand for it.

    2. This is the 2nd book in the Petaybee series by Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Ann Scarborough The planet Petaybee was terraformed two hundreds years ago It is still an arctic world so it was forcibly settled by Inuit peoples from old Earth They have adapted to their new world and have thrived but they hold a secret form Intergal, the company who terraformed Petaybee and owns the rights to the entire planet When new mineral deposits are discovered, research teams are sent but many of them disappear [...]

    3. I like this universe, and I like many of the characters in the series But this felt quite disjointed to me the curse of co writing, maybe There was too much going on the plotlines could have made two books and far too often the wrap up was a bit And it was all a dream I mean, it was never a dream, but the thing with having a sentient planet is that you can have all the deus ex machina you want Apparently There s at least one in this series, and I will read it, because a I m a completist, b I ow [...]

    4. The villain was too thinly written for me to give this stars I love the at that young Cita develops as a character Having the sentient planet as a secondary character is quite cool.

    5. From Publishers Weekly In this sequel to Powers That Be , the hardworking inhabits of the sentient planet Petaybee continue their struggles with the magnates controlling Intergal Company While chairperson Dr Whittaker Fiske has been convinced of the planet s intelligence and the necessity of negotiating with it other members of the board believe that he and the Petaybeans are suffering from a collective delusion Two representatives arrive to investigate the first, Marmion de Revers Algemeine, ma [...]

    6. Power Lines by Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Ann Scarborough is the second book set in the Petaybee Universe This book continues from where the last book leads off however the company has caused problems again While Dr Fiske agrees with the natives that the planet is sentient the view is not shared by his son who manages to get the company to send out their prized trouble maker Matthew Luzon to try open the world for mining At the same time certain dissident factions exist on the world which sta [...]

    7. Power Lines 1994 by Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Scarborough is a narrative catastrophe continuing the Petaybee storyline In this book, the plot line disintegrates into incoherence, but does eventually stumble about to a conclusion of sort.In the first book of this series, Anne and Elizabeth showed how they could world together to build a fun world, even if the results were sort of blah In this book, they struggle back and forth over who has the plot line, demonstrating exactly how not to to wri [...]

    8. My full review is here on my personal website I ll post my conclusion here, though 4.5 out of 5.0 starsAs with Powers That Be, the missing half star is because of Yana and Sean I never really see their relationship working romantically Maybe it s just the way my mind works or something, but I can t quite put them together as the perfect couple And just an FYI, by perfect couple I do not mean the kind that never fights and always gets along I mean the couple that works through their problems no m [...]

    9. Yanaba s short lived career as a company spy had ended the moment the planet Petaybee its people had adopted her as one of their own Now she was dedicated to keeping Intergal from exploiting, wounding, or killing the world she had come to love For Intergal persisted in denying that Petaybee was sentient, and nothing would stop it from stripping the ore rich planet Only solid evidence would convince the company to leave the planet alone, and for all its sentience, Petaybee s communications were h [...]

    10. Summary A self aware planet vs greedy company Enjoyed this second book, but the subject matter not really changed from the first and the surprise element is missing Its dated a bit as well, wish I had read it when it came out.Plotline Its OK, and comes together, but their are stupid weaknesses that should have been avoided.Premise Interesting and workableWriting Consistenely very good, simple.Ending Good climax, happy ending, no need to read the next in the series and I won t at least for a whil [...]

    11. I m thinking this is a social commentary with heavy environmentalist leanings When I read this, I was in total agreement and outrage Now as I look back, it s not that I m in agreement with the mining, I m not But I wonder if it is really this black and white Is there a way to communicate with the planet for her to deliver the goods wanted without damaging the planet Regardless, this was a fun read Yanaba is now fighting for the planet if we didn t guess that would happen.

    12. Some officials from Integral insist that the planet Petaybee is not sentient and that the colonists are actively sabotaging company efforts to mine In this book, we see of the planet Many of the peoples are like those in Kilcoole, but some have gone amazingly astray by following a zealot or disgruntled, former Integral employees.

    13. The plot thickens Yana is starting to realise that Petaybee may be sentient There are still a lot of people who couldn t care less just want to get their hands on the planet s mineral resources The development of the characters continues Petaybee consciousness starts to mature.Not quite as good as the first book, but still a good read.

    14. The only thing that didn t do it for me on this book, was that after a huge ordeal, the final solution was actually quite simple, but then, there is a third book, so it may not be so simple after all I always love Anne McCaffrey s books, because they are filled with strong, impressive women, and they are sci fi So, girl power in space D love it D

    15. The book was okay, although I think it needs a second read through to understand a few busy bits So many characters, and the scenes changed often It was hard to get to know their roles well enough especially the Intergal people.

    16. Power Lines Petaybee, 2 McCaffrey, Annecontinuing the story of yara, who has to fight the powers that be to save her adopted planet from distruction while the planet is just beging to communicate directly with man

    17. Great book As usual, I have enjoyed, all the books I have read by Anne Mccaffrey This 2nd book is just as wonderful as the first one I would recommend this book, and the first, to anyone

    18. THIS REVIEW APPLIES TO THE AUDIO FROM AUDIBLE ONLYThe book is good the abridgement is good the reader and or sound quality of the files from Audible is beyond poor.Read the book don t bother with the audio.

    19. My first ever audio book the trilogy The odd accents, characters with the same or sounding that way letter of the alphabet, complex names all made me wonder if I would have enjoyed READING the book .

    20. My last book of 2014, and thoroughly enjoyed it Quite a fun series and I ll never stop laughing about Harrison s Fjord.

    21. good, but as the second in a series, it didn t inspire me to finish the set I started getting bored with the characters.

    22. My Rating System couldn t finish, wouldn t recommend, would recommend, would read again, have read again.
