    Anne McCaffrey s The Crystal Singer is the reading equivalent of comfort food for me It s a book I pick up every few years and re read and, each time I do the tale of failed diva, Killashandra Ree who, in a fit of emotional and psychological piqu , agrees to become the companion of a mysterious crystal singer while he holidays from his demanding job only to find herself, months later, on the dangerous planet Ballybran training for a career as a crystal cutter herself, never ceases to enthrall me [...]

    A very interesting first book, then a plain old love story in the second it made me reluctant to start the third delayed it up to a month But the third book was much better the obligatory sanguine happy end notwithstanding.

    Came across this after reading some of the Dragonriders of Pern series It has become one of my favourite escapism novels to re read whenever I just want to be transported to another world.Killashandra is a pompous, haughty singer, until the day that she s not given the part she s been training most of her life for After a chance encounter with a Crystal Singer, which leads to her escorting him home when he is injured, she starts the process of becoming one herself.The trilogy tells of Killa s ti [...]

    I wondered why there were no reviews for this trilogy In fact there are many, but they can be found with the crystal singer omnibus, which is of course the same work as I read Oh well, I ll just add my review anyway.Anne McCaffrey is described as an author who wants women to be portrayed realistically in fantasy novels She certainly succeeded in portraying a likeable heroine From the first page I was attracted to this arrogant, slightly airheaded, but smart and resourceful woman, that gets herse [...]

    This omnibus has the entire Crystal Singer trilogy The Crystal Singer , Killashandra and The Crystal Line in one book.Over all, a 4.5 star trilogy, even though the first book is definitely the best I guess I d rate them 5, 4.5 and 3 respectively I loved reading about how Killashandra learned how to cut crystal in the first one, and her relationship with Lars in the second The third book couldn t quite live up to the two first ones, and took me a lot longer to finish It s not boring as such, it j [...]

    When I picked this up I had many years before read the first two novels contained in it, but not the third Read as a whole the three work better than most of the individual parts The sequence then comes over as a coherent history of its protagonist, Killashandra Ree, divided into Youth, Middle Years and Later Years Only the middle book really works individually, when Ree is caught up in events of considerable significance beyond her own life and influences their outcome greatly and the reader ca [...]

    Overall, I really liked this trilogy I think that the character development and world building is really interesting, and believable The main character Killa was easy enough to like, and I could relate to some of her characteristics, even though she isn t really anything like me overall and I think most people probably could, which is good in a book usually The three books could be read separately but are even better together, as each links really well, with moments in the third book linking bac [...]

    3.5 stars This was a re read, I read these when I was about 15 They re not bad books, but not great, either I was deep into my Anne McCaffrey phase, though, and re read mostly out of curiosity Not terribly well written, but the concepts are interesting and relatively compelling, though the main character gets kind of obnoxious pretty quickly Also in the third book, there are these long, pointless off world scenes that are just so unnecessary.

    The Crystal Singer is my comfort book It has lots of problematic things but it is also a lovely Fantasy Sci Fi romance growing up story I never felt any inclination to read any other books that might be set in the same universe This is simply my chocolate cake after one too many bad fantasy books hmmmmm, it s almost time to pull it out again


    Caitlin Kinsella

    I have loved Anne McCaffery since I was a kid, and this remains one of my favourite trilogies Following a feisty, flawed heroine who is determined to be the best whatever and however this book is based on an intriguing a sci fi premise that still gives me a twinge of longing to set a mountain range alight with crystal song whatever the cost.


    Jemma

    Crystal SingerI liked the idea of a Crystal Singer, I found it interesting But I didn t like the characters or their morals and there was no plot KillashandraThe plot was good in this one but unfortunately the characters showed disgusting lack of moral and it has put me off reading the last book.I would not recommend this book


    Sarah

    yes anne mccaffrey s books are slightly dorky but i loved them when i was younger and they are still great as comfort reading when i m feeling sad it s so convenient that they published a version with all three books score

    First two are better than the third, but enjoyable Not a huge fan of her fantasy but have a soft spot for her science fiction Undemanding and won t change the inside of your head Good for a lazy afternoon in a hammock somewhere.


    Helen

    An old favourate the best is book two, imho.


    Nikka102

    Not sure why I like this trilogy so much, but it is comfort reading for me I enjoy it than the famous Pern Dragon books by McCaffrey.


    Elizabeth

    I am reading the first book here I like it so far


    Pat Stearman

    Great characters, really loved this series.


    Laurie (Mots Insatiables)

    Discovered it randomly during my internship in a bookshop and I adored it auxmotsinsatiables.wordpress.


    Chris

    Just couldn t get into it As a kid I could and did choked down a lot of mediocre fantasy, but I just couldn t do it with mediocre sci fi.


    Crystal Scharlott

    I couldn t support the science part of this sci fi book There also seemed to be parts of this series that were inconsistent with other sections.


    Kathy Kaylor

    I loved all the crystal singer books.


    Nicholas Burke

    This book was great wish there where along the same lines of this I want to know what goes on with the junk


    Nick

    I ve read this book multiple times I know it s not the most well written sci fi book, but for some reason I just love it.


    Carleen

    One of my favorite books, I read it from time to time for a good dose of escapism Killashandra is a fun, strong female character who grows immensely through the course of the three books.


    Linda Wallis

    Next to the Dragons of Pern, this series is my favourite What a heroine Killashandra is


    Melanie

    Just reread this again amazing definitely one of my all time favorites V V


    Jim Barnabee

    This is just a cool, odd little book that doesn t really fit in any pure genre but scifi really.
