Of all the Rowan’s children, Damia was the most brilliant, the most difficult, the loneliest, and the one who had inherited the greatest Talent. It was obvious from childhood that she was going to be a Prime, with all the honours, burdens and strains of that elite class. Her one friend was Afra, older, wiser, talented in his own way, but ‘belonging’ almost exclusively to the Rowan and the workings of Callisto Station.

As Damia grew up, her Talent became almost too strong to control, and the solution was separation—from her parents, from Callisto, from her beloved Afra. Sent to the distant planet of Deneb, to her strange and gifted grandmother, Damia began the training necessary to turn her into a Prime of extraordinary gifts, a Prime who could contact the minds of approaching aliens through space, some of whom threatened to totally destroy the worlds of the Nine Star League.

    " The characters are a little too self-aware (or obtuse) to be entirely believable, but with a little willing suspension of disbelief, this is a great yarn. Love the story. "

    " I got quite emotional at times, having to wipe away tears. More so for this, the second book, than the Rowan. I could not put the book down though, reading straight through until it was finished. Looking forward to the next book in the series. "

    " Too much of this book was a repeat of "The Rowan" without giving you any new information or a different perspective of the events that happened. disappointing because of this. "

    " I did not have high hopes when i started reading this book, I had just read the rowan and it kind of bored me but since i had this book and the next I decided to go ahead and read it. I ended up really liking this book, actually i ended up really likeing Afra. Damia is set sometime in the far future. Humans have grown and fine tuned Telepathic abilities and used them to go out and populate the universe. Damia overlaps The Rowan a little with the telling of Afra's life but it mostly picks up where The Rowan left off. The Rowan and Jeff Raven have just destroyed a giant ship of Beatle like creatures dead set on the destruction of Jeff Ravens home planet and started a family. Damia is The Rowans youngest Daughter and the most like her. Afra is The Rowans best friend and second in command of her tower.So he is already fully grown by the time Damia is born so on that note i'm not gonna lie i was a little creeped out by him and the role he was going to play but it was really well done and not creepy at all and by the end of the book Afra had made it into the list of my top favorite Characters. It was a little slow going at times but it ended on just the right note to make me immediatly pick up the next book and start reading. "
