Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Ann Scarborough are two of science fiction's favorite authors. Together they have created the world of Acorna, the unicorn girl. Now Acorna's children start to have their own adventures. FIRST WARNING Acorna's daughter, Khorii, must contend with an overwhelming legacy to forge a path of her own. A simple journey to visit her relatives turns into a race against time when Khorii comes across a derelict spacecraft drifting in space, its crew dead in their seats. But this gruesome discovery is only a dread harbinger - a deadly plague is spreading across the universe and not even the healing powers of the Linyaari can slow its horrific advance. Khorii, one of the few unaffected by the outbreak, must find a cure before the disease consumes all in its path - including her beloved parents.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"'Good spacefaring fun'" * Publishers Weekly *
"'Combining colourful characterizations, lots of fast-paced action, and a decided sense of menace...this is entertaining fare indeed'" * Booklist (on the Acorna series) *
"Demonstrates the storytelling expertise of co-authors McCaffrey and Scarborough. Old and new characters, exotic alien races, and unique methods of problem-solving make this a good choice" * Library Journal *
"Khorii is definitely a chip off the old horn...Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Ann Scarborough are experts at being able to draw their readers into quite a complex and already well-established world, without making too many narrative demands with regard to the previous books. Their style is, as always, eminently readable" * SFX *
