Critic Reviews

"The author has created memorable, strong characters who are believable and well fleshed out. This is McCaffrey at her best." (School Library Journal)
"Narrator Jean Reed-Bahle reads all three. She is an excellent reader - her low-pitched voice is expressive and easy to listen to." (AudioFile)

Great Series

What made the experience of listening to Damia's Children the most enjoyable?

It was written by Anne McCaffrey, you just can't go wrong with any of her books.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Damia's Children?

Towards the end, what Zara does,,,, & no, I'll not give it away!

What about Jean Reed Bahle’s performance did you like?

That she reads the book, not perform every character in it.
