Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi Green | 2/17/2014

    " I've read this series several times over the years and always enjoyed the expansions of the first story. In this book the story does not quite develop the same as there are too many characters to try to follow completely, too many story lines trying to be completed. But I enjoyed the read and the continuation of a great story. Good book and story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 2/3/2014

    " This is the last of this series that was truly interesting to me. I'm amazed than McCaffrey spun a short story (The Rowan) into this many volumes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shilo | 1/31/2014

    " Not quite as good as The Rowan or Damia - but still fantastic. This book and the last two in the series are all really one 'book' broken into three, so you have to read all three to get the full story of any of the characters introduced here. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Okie | 1/27/2014

    " Third in the 'Tower & Hive' series. Still enjoying the telepathic and telekinetic abilities of the heroes and heroines. Love McCaffrey!! Will look for next several books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie Warden | 1/20/2014

    " I love this series! More twists and turns and you truly get a good feel for family and love from how the author shows it as the most important theme in this series...but the sci fi part keeps you thoroughly entertained. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janna | 1/19/2014

    " Not bad. Very much like an uneventful episode in a mini-series. Felt more like it was written as an in-between, something to link two other books. Eh. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric | 12/27/2013

    " I liked the Damia series, sometimes it got hard to follow and the weird green guy was never explained (At least, I don't remember it) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teressa Johnson | 12/11/2013

    " I loved this whole series. Telepaths that move ships with their minds. Ann McCaffrey is a wonderful writer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 11/15/2013

    " SciFi/Fantasy. Another light read in this series, it follows 'Damia'. If you've enjoyed the series so far you'll enjoy this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bridget | 11/8/2013

    " A really quick read, and it may be the nostalgia speaking (...AGAIN), but I loved it. The viewpoint jumps between a number of young characters, and I think it's silly and fun. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Robert | 11/3/2013

    " Painful series to read. Why do I do this to myself? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ink and Alchemy | 9/21/2013

    " The book is more of a collection of shorts surrounding each of Damia's children, rather than a cohesive novel involving them, but although they still suffer from an overabundance of self-awareness and altruism, the writing is solid and enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ladysaotome | 8/25/2013

    " Bug aliens starting to get kind of old... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 7/27/2013

    " Another OK book that I only read to get closure on the story. This book followed several of Damia's children. Each sub story was less interesting and it took me serveral days to push through to get that needed closure. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy Sjoquist | 6/9/2013

    " I love how the next generation just gets better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 1/26/2013

    " My favourite of the Tower series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Theresa | 9/21/2012

    " the struggle of damia's children coming to terms with their gifts and how they can help the universe and how their friendships can create a link to another race of beings. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mary-Beth | 5/14/2012

    " Another in the telepathy series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Edward Sargisson | 5/7/2012

    " Damia's children team up with their Mirdini friends to fight the beatles. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 5/5/2012

    " One of my favorites - Lots of things going on and new alien stuff all over the place. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wanda du Plooy | 2/20/2012

    " I always loved this book and I still do! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janell | 7/26/2011

    " The basic storyline that began in The Rowan is finally well underway. The characters are also more established. The story has a few plot holes that you have to look past but I'm fond of both the characters and the story that is now established and can look past the writing style. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaylynn Johnsen | 7/23/2011

    " More about the talented people I'd come to love, flaws and all. "

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

    " So, this one is probably my least favorite of the series, but I've recently reread it and liked it better. It does contain important plot developments about Rowan's children, focusing on the 3rd one - Damia. More aliens! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bryan457 | 4/25/2010

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

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cydney | 3/21/2010

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lindsey | 2/17/2010

    " Decent story, barely adequate writing. The characters are compelling enough, but shallowly drawn with an insubstantial plot. If you hadn't read The Rowan beforehand, I imagine you would become quite angry with Ms. McCaffrey's skimming over the events of it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 1/28/2010

    " Next in the series, Rowan's daughter. "

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

    " I enjoyed reading Damia's story and finding out how the strong-willed daughter of a strong-willed mother turned out. The story gets overly spun out in later volumes, but this installment is still pretty character-driven. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alice | 7/8/2009

    " No where near as good as The Rowan, but so much better than Damia's children, which I still to this day have not finished. Afra and Damia as a couple did little for me and the challenges just weren't as fearsome as they were in The Rowan.

    Not my favorite McCaffrey series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaylynn | 6/21/2009

    " I love this series of books about people with talents. And I loved learning about the next generation. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsay | 6/3/2009

    " Rereading this (random library pickup) after many many years is incredibly surreal. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/21/2009

    " 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. "

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

    " SciFi/Fantasy. A pretty light read. It follows 'The Rowan' in the series and is my favorite in the series since it features my favorite character, Afra, quite a bit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kerri | 12/22/2008

    " The second book in the Tower and the Hive series starring Damia, the sometimes annoyingly precocious daughter of The Rowan and Jeff and Afra, a long-time family friend who eventually becomes something more. An enjoyable book for McCaffrey fans and those already familiar with the Tallents universe. "
