The Rowan was one of the greatest telepaths ever born, treasured by the people she saved from alien invasion—and loved by a young man who never hoped to win her heart. In spite of his feelings, Afra remained loyal to the Rowan. He stayed by her side and helped to raise her Talented daughter, Damia. Now years later, Damia is a full-grown Talent of great power. Terrible alien voices echo within her mind. And a wondrous new feeling for Afra is growing within her heart.…

In a universe under seige, only one thing can defeat the power of fear: the power of love.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ink and Alchemy | 2/18/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angelique Minnaar | 2/12/2014

    " 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. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cydney | 2/11/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/3/2014

    " 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. "

    " Not as good as the first one. Should have stuck with the Rowan as the main character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 1/3/2014

    " Have always enjoyed the later telepath works of Anne McCaffrey. The 'Pegasus' books are okay, but these later works are richer and enjoyable to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dillon | 1/2/2014

    " I liked the idea a lot of people who have mental powers but they use them for a living. I thought the book was really good. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Caterina | 12/25/2013

    " Honestly, I can't get past Afra's greenness. I feel racist, but... who thought green skin and blonde hair were a good idea? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 12/20/2013

    " I enjoyed the portrait of children with talent. Damia had more character development than most McCaffrey heroines. A fun book with an interesting dovetail into the series with Afra. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan Tietjen | 12/17/2013

    " Still had a hard time with this story. It was alright, but not my favorite. Slow and complicated, even confusing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Monica | 12/2/2013

    " This is the story of Damia Raven, daughter of The Rowan, also a high ranked psi talent. She is sent to run a new commerce and communications tower, and tells the story of her growing up, and falling in love. "

    " My favorite book from this series. "

    " I liked the whole series, it is a very different story line. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Williams | 6/4/2013

    " I have read this whole series. It's very good and an interesting twist on telepathy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shilo | 5/7/2013

    " Even better than The Rowan "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jackie "the Librarian" | 11/29/2012

    " Eh. Don't bother with this McCaffrey series of telepaths in space, having tepid relationships while throwing cargo ships around. Stick with the Pern series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 10/6/2012

    " This is by far my favorite series! I've read this so many times the cover is falling apart. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 9/17/2012

    " While the Rowan sucked me into this series and reading in general, this book is by far my all time favorite. Damia is strong willed, headstrong and stubborn and is just a wonderful character. I could go on and on but I am leaving it at that and will let you readers enjoy the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 7/31/2012

    " another adventure about the plight of the talented. Ann has a way of taking you not only to another planet but a whole different way of viewing something. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Theresa | 5/25/2012

    " The daughter of the Rowan, and her headstrong struggle with what she is and who she is expected to be. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bridget | 5/4/2012

    " I liked this one, but the romance in it made it kind of squicky. I don't remember being bothered by it when I was a teenager, but the idea of the romantic interest standing in loco parentis for the heroine was icky. Even if the actual romance didn't show up until she was an adult. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 DDog | 12/17/2011

    " Found this at a church book sale years ago. I don't think I realized it wasn't the first book in this series when I bought it, but I got the rest of the series out of the library and read them all. McCaffrey always has interesting characters and worlds; the Rowan's is no exception. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kate | 5/18/2011

    " Felt like a 200 hundred page ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 2/4/2011

    " Kind of getting tired of the sameness of the kids on the space flights and exploring the Hive worlds, but there are other interesting story developments. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 8/22/2010

    " Great series. She plunges you right into the world. It may take a chapter or two to adjust, but it's well worth it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janell | 5/4/2010

    " This is the final book in the series that began with The Rowan. Enjoyable conclusion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alice | 1/10/2010

    " This is the final book based on "The Rowan." This series does not compel me the way some of her others do, but the characters and situations are interesting and believable. It was fun to see Rowan and Jeff as grand-parents, and I'm always a fan of the resolution to stories. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rainheart | 9/16/2009

    " this book was actually pretty boring compared to the rest of that series. there wasnt really any incredible cool parts. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ariane | 7/2/2009

    " To quick, descriptive and rushed in my opinion. Frankly I think McCaffrey should have just left it at Damia and not gone on this tangent. To many characters and stories to fallow like the previous two: Damia's Children, and Lyon's Pride. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lindsay | 4/26/2009

    " I hated this conclusion to the Rowan series - I read it some time ago, but remember being bored to death with page after page of space-battle and precious little of the character interaction or relationships that I read the first few books for. Yuck. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 1/22/2009

    " SciFi/Fantasy. The last in the series (unfortunately) this follows Lyon's Pride. If you've enjoyed the series so far you'll enjoy this one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alison | 6/20/2008

    " Last in the series. Not my favorite. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 CJ | 3/22/2008

    " This is the only book that I've actually flung across the room. It was because of a scientific inaccuracy. You can't use gas chromatographs to identify unknowns! I actually wrote to her about it and got a very cordial response. "
