Fortunately, someone still cared enough to try to salvage what was left of Killashandra's mind.
But she would have to learn to open herself--to another person, and to all her unpleasant memories.

It's interesting to see her rebuild herself here; she's not all that likable at first, diva that she is, but she grows through this tale. And I'd note--strong female protagonists are rare enough in science fiction that alone makes this book stand out to me.
One of McCaffrey's greatest strengths is her world-building, which shows off to advantage here as she creates another original and engrossing world, Ballybran, whose intricacies are welded into the story. I'd also add this is as much romance--an appealing one--as science fiction.
Fits in perfectly. Barker on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago The character of Killashandra and the detailed story telling about her cutting crystal out of the mountain ranges of Ballybran really gets you involved. This book is hard to put down once you start to read it and although I can't sing my way out of a paper bag, I appreciate the diva that Ree is. Kellswitch on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago One of my favorite books growing up, I may even prefer it to the Pern books in many ways.
I loved how realized and detailed the world of Ballybran felt while reading it and I remember wanting to be a Crystal Singer myself though I don't have anywhere near perfect pitch , and I probably would have accepted being one of the support staff. I do remember finding Killashandra Ree to be both annoying and at times unsympathetic in many ways, but believable as a diva so she felt like a real and natural character and I wanted her to succeed and felt very caught up in her story.
SunnySD on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago Killashandra Ree doesn't settle for second best - if she can't be a top-rank singer, well then she'll use her talents elsewhere. She has both requirements for successfully singing crystal: an ear for perfect pitch and the ability to reproduce it exactl.
And the odds of singing crystal successfully appear to be much in her favor. But the Hepatite Guild doesn't reveal all it's secrets easily - the planet Ballybran with it's rich trove of crystals is a deadly master, surrendering its crystal singers only in death.
And dying is fairly easy - it's remembering to stay alive that's hard. Can Killashandra master her new craft in time to save herself? Classic sci-fi that doesn't get any less readable with age.
You can still recognize the basic story from the four short stories that she wrote before writing the three books. I much prefer the outcome of the book series over the short story series. Anonymous More than 1 year ago Anne McCaffery always could writr a good scifi.

But to my surprise I have really enjoyed the Crystal Singer, it didn't grab me so I couldn't but the book down, but an enjoyable read all the same. I shall definately be reading the other two Crystal Singer books. Katissima on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago Killashandra Ree only wants to do something if she can be the best at it. When a final test at the end of long years of musical training prove that she will never be the star she hoped, she decides to chuck it all and start over.
A chance meeting at the spaceport leads her in the direction of the planet Ballybran, the home of the Crystal Singers--a wealthy, glamorous and mysterious group of people who use their perfect pitch to mine precious crystal that is used in all walks of life. Stories and rumours abound about these crystal singer. Can Killashandra make it into their elite group? This is the beginning of Ms. McCaffrey's Crystal Singer trilogy. In my opinion, the second book, Killashandra, is the best of the three, but this one is also excellent--especially if you like stories that have lots of description about new worlds and societies.
