Damia Gwen-Raven, was a early bloomer to her talents. Frustrating her mother, terrorizing the Tower staff into panic, never doing anything exactly "wrong" but she was too much for the little station when her telekinetic abilities surfaced when she was two years old.
Being "shipped" to a planet and raised by her Grandmother, Damia grows up with her brothers and sister eventually becoming a Tower Prime.
Her loneliness was something she expected, for her mother had Afra when she was alone to help her till Jeff Raven showed up, she had no one. She sought a Mind that was stronger then hers, but never found it.
Infatuated with a mind she finds out in space, stronger then her own, devastated about the results that ultimately came from that contact. Damia finds the Man that is her equal.
Both Damia and Afra Dream and find that they have the strength to lead Third Generation of Gwen Raven Children.
Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.
Not great literature, but fun and entertaining. Been through the whole series a few times.
I thoroughly enjoyed the print version but hearing it has reminded me why I love this series of books and characters.
When her and Afra finally get together.
Yes, I like this one much better than the first one. Maybe I am just getting used to her voicing style.
I laughed out loud, a lot!
Anne McCaffrey continues to be able to hold the multithreads of the story in such a way as to capture the thoughts and attention of her readers.
Wonderful love story
Where Damia realizes Afra loves her as a woman
I love this series and it makes me happy to read it again and again
This series is so worth your time if you are a fan of Anne McCaffery. The narrator does an amazing job of bringing the story to life
The tower and the hive are some of Anne's best books in my opinion. better than all of the Pern Dragon series. they would make a stellar movie!
