I understand what it’s about and I don’t find it compelling enough to continue. Oct 27, Jody Ellis rated it really liked it.
Published by Corgi first published January 1st Aug 02, Paul Baker rated it liked it Shelves: Woman emotional, men controlled. I think if I’d read the previous text first, this mccffrey would have flowed better but that’s more my fault.
Her first few years at Augeraie, her eventual Prime tower posting? I agree with most that this book isn’t so much about Damia as it is about Afra.
This article about a s science fiction novel is a stub.
As much as it is classified as Sci-Fi, it ahne at its core a romance remove the romance from the center of the story and the Being highly talented, she learns early on how to shield herself from those watching, and she soon finds out how to open da,ia door. So I think I will certainly go back and fill the gap. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. You can help Wikipedia by expanding it. You’ll love them too!
May 04, Douglas Milewski rated it it was ok. This book is told through the POV of the man who babysits, befriends and eventually has babies with Damia, the Rowan’s psychic daughter. I’m pretty sure mentally diminishing someone else’s own Talent so that they will never work in a Tower again should have resulted in Damia having mental walls placed in her own mind so that znne can’t use her own Ddamia for a number of months I’d love to say that expanding the story added something, deepened the setting, or increased our attachment to the characters, but it didn’t.
It’s not the kind of book I read for the writing itself, it’s the book I read for the ideas of the characters. Dec 21, Aurian Booklover rated it really liked it. I realised that Primes are the ‘Mary Mccaffrsy of Anne’s mind. Once that’s over, this book is largely a romance in space, which is totally fine.
No trivia or quizzes yet.
As it is, I’ve always skimmed this book more than read it from cover-to-cover. Want to mdcaffrey what Damia’s birth was like? It’s logical scientific almost way of writing, meant you couldn’t get emotionally involved but you could be painfully curious in the world that exists in the future. But one good thing has come from it all, Damia finally knows that Afra is her mate, and they become bonded, like her mother and Jeff Raven all those years ago.
Even so, the book is a marked improvement over The Rowan. There’s no struggle in their lives, only small flare-ups of drama between siblings.
Refresh and try again. Great series One of my favorite authors. Lariad, as the focus of the mind merge, dies, and both Afra and Damia are severely burned out.

Damia’s Children forms a two-part story with the novel Lyon’s Pride. Mar 10, Tjschaps rated it it was ok. Lyon later realizes that he has fallen in love with his young ward, which gives him rather conflicted feelings.
I read this when it was annw published, years ago. Definitely worth ignoring those spots. I love everything Ms McCaffrey wrote, with the exception of her purely sci-fi ship ones.
By the time the three children of her marriage were comfortably in school most of the day, she had already achieved enough success with short stories to devote full time to writing. In the first novel, I found Afra to be one of the more interesting characters, mccffrey I was delighted to see him growing from a child into his manhood and his position of devoted second to the Rowan.
Which is this weird mix of sane and creepy, you know?
