Acorna's Triumph 

Acorna's Triumph (2004)
(The seventh book in the Acorna series)
A novel by Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Ann Scarborough

 
Publisher's Weekly
More episodic than its predecessors, McCaffrey and Scarborough's finale to the charming Acorna saga will please the two authors' many fans and lovers of horses and cats generally. Last seen in Acorna's Rebels (2003), the unicorn girl has finally located her missing life-mate, Aari, though his exile in time has resulted in a disturbing personality change. Besides helping Aari to recover, Acorna must retrieve a hoard of jewels-chrysoberyls used in terraforming, stolen by a troupe of dancing girls with anti-gravity belts-from three races of sulfur-based beings, the Liquids, Solids and Mutables. She must also contend with the return of the Khleevi, disgusting insectoid aliens with evil designs on Acorna's home planet. And of course there is Grimalkin, the felinoid shape-changer, whose antics delay the well-deserved happy ending after all the bopping back and forth through time, across space and in flight from the Khleevi. While this light SF/fantasy romp is a hopeless proposition for newcomers to Acorna's travels, it serves as a fitting coda to the series. Both Acorna and Aari and their creators can ride off into the starlight with clear consciences. (Mar. 2) FYI: McCaffrey is the author, with Todd McCaffrey, of Dragon's Kin (Forecasts, Oct. 13, 2003) and other titles in her popular Pern series. Scarborough is the author of the Nebula Award-winning novel The Healer's War. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Library Journal
The Linyaari home world of Vhiliinyar has been reclaimed, and Acorna, the unicorn-horned girl, has found her life-mate, Aari, who had once suffered at the hands of the Khleevi invaders. However, all is not right, since Aari has changed drastically, and Acorna discovers a new threat of an invasion by the Linyaari's ancient enemies. Veteran sf writers McCaffrey ("Dragonriders of Pern" series) and Scarborough (The Healer's War) combine their talents in this conclusion to a series about a young woman's growth into maturity and her determined search for her missing people and her vanished mate. Strong characters and a good eye for storytelling make this a good choice for most libraries. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
