My Review of The Tower and The Hive

The Tower and the Hive

The Tower and the Hive by Anne McCaffrey

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the fifth an concluding novel in the series of the same name, The Tower and The Hive, and it wraps up that various plot lines. Overall is the final defeat of the Hive in what is a war of extermination where the only question is who will prevail. But there is still conflict to navigate here. As anyone who has studied the history of the two world wars of the 20th century will recognize, once the outcome on the battlefield is settled other scores come up as nations jockey for position. In this case, we have two allies, the Human Nine Star League, and the Mrdini, who both are looking to expand, and who settle planets with the same ecology. Deciding who gets what is problem, made even more difficult by the high birth rates of the Mrdini. And the family of telepaths that have led the fight for the Humans is trying to keep things together, but essentially they are just employees of Federation Teleport and Telepath, and their power is resented.

I listened to the audio book version of this novel.
