More spheres, in different colors, hung behind like wary sparrows trailing a crow, never getting too close. This had to be the hierarchy again, Keff thought. He doubted this constituted an honor guard since he had gathered that Nokias and Femgal outranked Chaumel

These are the Ancient Ones who invented the Core and all the items of power. The murmuring died away. Cries of fear came from the fleeing mages, whose chairs faltered like fledgling birds. The great chamber rumbled, and infant stalactites cracked from the ceiling.

Carialle was born so physically disadvantaged that her only chance for life was as a shell person. Like others before her, she decided to become a spaceship. With her brawn Keff, they search for intelligent beings. When they arrive on the planet Ozran, nothing is as it seems.

Exceptional book! Great science fiction by two extraordinary authors. Wonderful story, awesome characterizations and universe-building, very interesting aliens, action-packed and fascinating technology and societies. Anne McCaffrey has been my favorite author for more than twenty years and Jody Lynn Nye's writing style blends so wonderfully with McCaffrey's in this book that I could not tell when McCaffrey left off and Nye began. This book does not disappoint and actually all the books in this seven-book series are great. McCaffrey wrote the first book in the series herslef, then co-authored the next four in the series, then the last two books in the series were written solely by two of her earlier co-authors, Jody Lynn Nye and S.M. Sterling, respectively.

Good addition to my library

This is a good story, but it could have been told with half as many words.

Okay, I'm getting impatient in my old age and you may enjoy it more than I did. I got the feeling that JLN wrote most of it and AMcC fiddled with it a bit and lent her name and the brainship idea to it in return for part of the profits. -OR- I could just be getting contrary in my old age.

The start is engaging and kicks off with action and tension. The middle is world-building and character building (yawn?). The end is where the rest of the real action is.

This is part of the Brain Ship series of novels (THE CITY WHO FOUGHT, THE SHIP WHO SANG). In the technologically advanced civilization of Central Worlds, humans who were born with devastating birth defects were placed in self contained life support containers, Shells, where they may live out their lives. Once these shell persons have reached maturity they, like any other young adult, seek a career. Some run cities or space ports, others handle complex communication systems and a few, the most adventurous and boldest of the lot become space ships and the boldest and most adventurous of those went exploring new regions of space. Their Shell encased bodies are installed in a space ship where they replace the crew, handling all aspects of piloting, navigation, engineering on their own, accompanied only by a Brawn, a single human who was in charge of taking care of all those tasks that actually required a physical presence and with protecting their ship's Brain with their very life is necessary.

Twenty years ago Carialle and her first Brawn had been in a little explored region of space when they fell victim to sabotage which killed her Brawn and left Carialle floating helplessly in space, blind and unable to speak but aware and able to hear the silence around her. Even though she was eventually rescued Carialle had been severely traumatized by the experience, so much so that Central Worlds had grave concerns about allowing her back out into space. Still there were massive debts to recoup for her lifetime of care and training and so Carialle was once again paired with a Brawn, Keff. Twenty years into their partnership the two thought they had finally found what they were looking for, first contact with a new race of sentient beings. In fact it appeared as they may had found two. As Carialle and Keff continued their investigations though they discovered that they may have found far more than they had ever dreamed.

This novel, as is the rest of the Brain Ship series, is definitely in the Space Opera/Adventure category of story. The stories are reminiscent of the classic pulp fiction tales or Heinlein's juvenile novels in that new worlds, damsels in distress, strange aliens and even space pirates abound. The action is well planned, although a bit predictable at times. It is easy to sympathize with Carialle and Keff as they are well written characters that leave the readers wanting more. Happily there is a sequel to their adventures - THE SHIP ERRANT.
I am a reader who likes to follow all the books in a series in order to get a good feel for the world the author is trying to create. I have just completed my second read-thru of the "Ship" series and I tend to think of this book as the weakest one. I found the story line exciting as it tries to unravel a few mysteries, but I didn't find myself as connected to the characters as I have in previous books. In other books in the series you have more insight into the feelings of the "brains" or the "brawns" or sometimes both. This books tends to be more of a description of events.
I was also disappointed that both this book and "The City Who Fought" seemed to leave some loose ends that Anne McCaffery didn't follow-up on herself. The sequels were authored solely by the contributing authors and require reading if you really want to finish up those stories. For instance, if you want to find out what really happened to Carialle in this book while she was drifting in space and on the brink of insanity (which was a primary point in this book) you will have to read "The Ship Errant" by Jody Lynn Nye.
