Publisher's Summary

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.

Listen to the rest of the Rowan Series.

Afra waits and searches for the lover that will be his life mate, to reach a Meeting of Minds with her.

How long will he have to wait till the woman he finds to SEE Afra the man?

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.

Getting Better All the Time

Would you consider the audio edition of Damia to be better than the print version?

I thoroughly enjoyed the print version but hearing it has reminded me why I love this series of books and characters.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Damia?

When her and Afra finally get together.

Have you listened to any of Jean Reed Bahle’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, I like this one much better than the first one. Maybe I am just getting used to her voicing style.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed out loud, a lot!

Growing up with psychic talent.

Even the most loving home can feel lonely if you are excluded. Damia feels excluded from her siblings and she turns to the cats and Afra as her friends. She is precocious and bright, she is also sneaky and adventurous. Another facet of what psychic ability could bring to a family and the humanity. The performance was good, not fantastic, but more of a reading than a performance.

Contunuance

Growing up with reading Her stories was a joy. Now having them read to me is a continuance of the story, fresh, alive and most comforting.
