The exciting sequel to Mindflight.
On the planet Iwagen, Richard and Mara Cheney have taken over their late parents' project, a hospice for telepausal Dur-ill telepaths, hoping to start a new telepathic generation.
But someone else is interested in Dur-ill telepaths, too. A mind-being called the Mentad has been growing on Dur-ill worlds, absorbing Dur-ill telepaths into itself and becoming a collective consciousness with many bodies. It learns about the Cheneys' hospice and stages a deadly raid.
When his sister is taken by the Mentad, Richard must seek the aid of the Terran Intelligence Agency, the very group responsible for trying to kill his parents. With Agency assistance,Richard will stop at nothing to free his sister and the others from the Mentad's clutches.

Once I finished the first Mindsaga book, Mindflight, there was no way I couldn't read the sequel - and it didn't disappoint. Stephen Goldin takes the whole subject of telepathy to a new level in the sequel; bringing in alien telepaths that are surprisingly different from human telepaths. The conflict between the two different ways that social telepathy could develop is an interesting and complex story line. Thankfully the author weaves the plot in an easy to follow sequence, constantly building in suspense, and - like in the first book - coming up with a surprise twist for a satisfying ending. Stephen is my kind of SciFi author, smart heros, heroines, and adversaries who all make reasonable decisions in overcoming unavoidable obstacles.

I really loved this book, as well as its predecessor Mindflight. The writing is excellent with characters you cannot help but care about. I got immersed in the reality that includes believable aliens that are truly alien; and human telepaths whose abilities seem to expand exponentially. Am hoping Mr. Goldin has a sequel in the works! I will definitely be buying it when it appears. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes sci fi.
Very decently put together novel. It feels like these first two novels of Mindsaga are begging for a third to complete them. I hope the author writes it!
