Laria, Thian, Rojer and Zara continue growing, maturing and working for FT&T as the main focus is on finding the remaining Hive spheres and restricting those Hivers that had populated other worlds to those worlds.

This brings The Rowan and Afra, Rojer’s grandmother and father, to the Genesee to search of him demanding explanations. When Rojer is found and sent to ...more
Laria is doing well on Clarf, but her new assistant is xenophobic, so she really needs to be replaced. Clarissa is a danger to them all, if the Mrdini find out. Her replacement is a severely burned out T-2 Talent, and Laria immediately likes him. Unfortunately, he is gay so he cannot be the lifemate she so desperately wants and needs. Slowly Kincaid heals and finds his place in the Tower ...more

In this sequel to Damia's Children , the psionically Talented children of Damia Gwyn-Raven and Afra Lyon are pushed closer to the forefront of the struggle between the human Nine Star League and their alien Mrdini allies against the blind expansionism of the insect-like Hive culture that threatens both their civilizations.

Rojer, Tian, Zara and Laria are still out in the field working for FT...more

Parts of the story are more mature that earlier in the series as the Alliance are now fighting a war. You really need to read the previous books to fully understand everything th ...more
Yet another five star. Fun reading. Fast. This is still part of the Pegasus and Rowan series.
Damia's children are learning where the younger children should be in the world and how their connection with the new alien race can save them from the concuring hive. the children of Damia find their own path their own loves and their missions in life
I think the events that took place on the book were the perfect direction for the over all story and cant wait to read the Tower and the Hive.
Some tension, some emotion and definitely an easy comfort read.
