Publisher's Write-Up

Found as an infant drifting alone in an escape pod in deep space, Acorna was reared by three youg asteroid prospectors who raised her as their mascot, their miracle girl, and saved her from those who would destroy her mysterious powers.

But now Acorna has become a young woman who has dreams of a shining world with blue grass and green skies. She still has a translucent horn in the middle of her forehead, she still has her powers to make things heal, and grow, purify, but she longs to know where she came from - what world in the galaxy was her home?

With one of her old protectors, she sets off on a quest to find her own kind, but even as she leaves, a strange craft appears in the skies, peopled by gentle and mysterious telepaths who bring not only terrible news of a frightening race of invading space killers, but also the memory of an infant, lost in space, long ago.....

This one finds Acorna chafing at being prevented from looking for her people. All her friends worry about her and, of course, like any young person she does what she wants to do and it all works out! In the meantime, a group of space farers communicate with the humans and well, that is the story… all very comforting and non-threatening. The bad people once again are not really that bad and they all get their comeuppance. Nice, comforting space-fantasy type stuff. Still not completely convinced about this series, still seeming a bit puerile.

Liked the Dragons much better.
