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!
