Format: Paperback
I first read this book about 8 years ago, when I was 13. It was the first "adult's" SF book that I had ever read, and I couldn't put it down. I started reading it at about nine at night, took it to bed with me and finished it in one sitting at about 5:30 the next morning. To a thirteen year old it was that good!
Looking at it from a more mature perspective, I think that I would be most likely to recommend it to people of about the age that I was when I read it. I think that for an "older" lady, Ms. McCaffrey has an incredible insight into the minds and thoughts of the young, although with such a young outlook, I hesitate to call her an "older" person at all, as she seems to prove the old adage that you are as old as you feel.
All of her books have the (possibly simplistic) core of good people getting the things that they need in life and the bad ones getting their just deserts, but unless you are such a hardened cinic that you cannot appreciate a happy ending, I would not hesitate to recommend her books to anyone (except those who turn their noses up at SF & F as something wierd and culty).
If, like I hadn't, you've never read a science fiction before, you could do worse than start here.

Some other reviews have been quite harsh about this book, but I genuinely loved it (and all of the books in this series).

I first read the Tower & Hive series when I was a teenager and loved the rich characters, the ways in which they interacted and how imaginative the storylines were. Yes, the first section of "Damia" covers an era which was previously described in part of "The Rowan", but from a completely different point of view, adding a much more substantial understanding of the family unit and why they were so closely bound together. It was essential to have this section so that certain characters became more solid in the reader's mind.

I loved reading this as a teenager and could relate to the characters, but I also loved re-reading it as an adult, whereby certain aspects of the story took on a whole new meaning. And that is the beauty of this series - such a wide appeal. I thoroughly enjoyed curling up with a cup of tea and reading "Damia" - both times. And I will happily read it again!

This is the second in the Tower and the Hive series, based on the life of the Rowan's second daughter Damia - an incredibly powerful person (sound familiar?). It starts with her as a baby/toddler, skips up to her teen years and then into the phase of adulthood. This contains the same themes as The Rowan with the addition of personal loss. It's a pretty good sequel but basically ignores the main characters from the first book - you learn about anything happening to Rowan and Jeff by association.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Ace Rimmer on 31 Aug. 2011
Format: Paperback
The first 100 or so pages of this book are just a recap of the previous book, The Rowan, written in a diary style with no creative spark at all; anyone who had read the first book could have written them. It briefly gets more interesting as it describes the child Damia growing up. In the next section, where she is an adult, it all goes wrong. Badly written, with poor grammar, and a boring style. There are odd mistakes, too, such as the mention of another sibling, Ezro, who was never actually introduced.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if Anne McCaffrey had written only part, or even none, of this book. It is a huge disappointment to me and I won't be reading the sequel even though I've got it.

The first book in the series is not bad, but also suffers from inconsistency and drags on a bit towards the end.

My conclusion is that if you want a good McCaffrey book, stick to her earlier work, which is always entertaining and often excellent.

Format: Paperback
Simply fantastic sequel to The Rowan. The story of a young girl growing up, almost ignored by her parents and totally dismissed by her peers. Damia is lonely and finds a friend in her mothers right hand man.
