I always did enjoy Anne McCaffrey's writing, though when I picked this book up, I wasn't actually expecting to enjoy it...I mean, the Dragon Riders of Pern series was one thing, but space travel and aliens? However, I was pleasently surprised when I opened the book, and couldn't put it down! It starts on Berevi, a planet ruled and run by the Catteni, a race of aliens. The book takes so many twists in just the first chapter, I had to finish it.
Just one word of warning, before you pick up this book, be prepared to be completely absorbed by this fascinating story. And be prepared to search out the rest in the series.

I've read this book several times and I must say it is very imaginative. I epecially like the idea of a completely different world and that the terrans now know there are dangerous aliens, but there is no human sci-fi ray guns or pulse blastes, just regular modern humans trying to fight back. I also love the idea that there are no luxuries, the different races have to cooperate to survive because they are out in a wild place... supposedly. The free slaves have to battle the elements, the Catteni, and now have to fear the arrival of a race of intergallactic farmers. I really enjoyed the book. I hope several sequels come out to allow the readers an epic adventure.

I never was big on reading books untill I read some of Anne Mcaffery's. When I read Freedoms landing I got so into the book I couldn't put it down. I read it in one sitting.I have read many of her novels all being good but this book was by far one of the best.The characters and the setting were so real so intense. It was a great book to read I hope every one will read one of here book some time or another.
