Told in the timeless style of Anne McCaffrey, The Rowan is the first installment in a wonderful trilogy. This is sci-fi at its best: a contemporary love story as well as an engrossing view of our world in the future.

The kinetically gifted, trained in mind/machine gestalt, are the most valued citizens of the Nine Star League. Using mental powers alone, these few Prime Talents transport ships, cargo, and people between Earth's Moon, Mars' Demos and Jupiter's Callisto.

An orphaned young girl, simply called The Rowan, is discovered to have superior telepathic potential and is trained to become Prime Talent on Callisto.

After years of self-sacrificing dedication to her position, The Rowan intercepts an urgent mental call from Jeff Raven, a young Prime Talent on distant Deneb. She convinces the other Primes to merge their powers with hers to help fight off an attack by invading aliens.

Her growing relationship with Jeff gives her the courage to break her status-imposed isolation, and choose the more rewarding world of love and family. Download and start listening now!

    " I'm fond of scifi, and liked this book, though I will admit that the ones that followed it weren't as enjoyable to me. "

    " Loved this book about how Federal Teleport and Telepath had developed after Peter Reidiger got it going. Psionic powers, space flight, romance, aliens ... what more can you want? "

    " Another one of my leftovers from childhood. Liked this book a lot. Still do, too. Has some stuff in it that I definitely did not pick up on as a kid but over all really fun. "
