Just to give a quick plot summary for those who are not familiar with the story, the heroine, Sarah, is kidnapped by aliens no, seriously and remembers nothing more until she wakes up on a strange planet with a new outward appearance.

She finds herself working in a menial capacity in what appears to be a psychiatric asylum and gradually realises that the patients are drugged political prisoners. Her particular charge turns out to be the former Regent of the quasi-medieval, but space-level-technology world, whom Sarah subsequently helps escape.

In so doing she finds herself pitchforked into the middle of planetary level politics and an interplanetary war against the Mil, a technologically superior race that preys on other species. Later she is less active in a taking action sense but still plays a crucial role as a dues ex machina in Lotharian political affairs and in facilitating communication between Lothar and their established allies when seeking to include Earth in an alliance against the Mil.

The story itself is space opera, pure and simple, i. But it is a reasonably engaging adventure story nonetheless, with plenty of action, political maneuverings, and reasonable worldbuilding.

I think the way Lotharian society has developed as a result of Mil predation is plausible, as is their socio-psychological response to the Mil themselves.

And there are space ships and a critical space battle—and although I am a leetle uncertain of some of the technology involved, being space opera, so long as there is a conveniently placed wormhole, or the like, it would be churlish to delve to deeply. Ah, I hear you ask, but what about the romantic elements? Well, what about them? I suspect that one of the reasons I enjoyed Restoree so much as a mid-teen was precisely because of the romance between Sarah and Harlan, juxtaposed with the space-adventure story.

Overall, therefore, I feel that Restoree , despite some dated aspects, still stands the test of time as a fun, adventurous tale with some more serious aspects—and romantic-elements goodness to boot—but which should not be embarked on too seriously as a reading adventure. It was one of my favourite books, and I must have read it a dozen times at least. But Anne McCaffrey wrote a huge number of books so some similarities are probably bound to creep in over time….

“Restoree” by Anne McCaffrey

With the news the Watchmen screenwriter will adapt Dragonriders of Pern , it's time to face facts. Hollywood has picked up the wrong Anne McCaffrey novel to adapt. Instead, someone should tackle Restoree , her take on Golden Age heroines. Dragonriders will be absurdly difficult to get right — and there's a sizeable fanbase that will not be pleased if the source material is abused.

Torn from Earth by a bizarre and nameless black force, Sara had no idea where she was or why she was in a beautiful new body. Controlled by brutal guards and tamed by terror, she could not comprehend her role as a nurse for a man who appeared to be an idiot. And when they did, they became fugitives on a world of multiple evils—bound together on a daring adventure that would either join them for all time. She was the first woman to win the two top prizes for science fiction writing, the Hugo and Nebula awards.
