    This is silly, this book isn t about Damia, it s about Afra Which is probably the right choice as he sinteresting than she is, given he s 24 years older than she is and by the end of the book she s only 19 Which has its own set of problems right there It s a middling book But you know, I think I ve realized why this series wears on me it s quite boring to read about hyper privileged aristocrats who are spoilt, moody, confident of their skills and power and who never interact with the This is silly, this book isn t about Damia, it s about Afra Which is probably the right choice as he sinteresting than she is, given he s 24 years older than she is and by the end of the book she s only 19 Which has its own set of problems right there It s a middling book But you know, I think I ve realized why this series wears on me it s quite boring to read about hyper privileged aristocrats who are spoilt, moody, confident of their skills and power and who never interact with the riff raff It s palace intrigue without the actual intrigue, because no one s ever trying to kill each other off and there s no political opposition to or check on the FTT monopoly There s no struggle in their lives, only small flare ups of drama between siblings So the only things they expend effort on are flirting, pouting, and having children It s maddening.The first half of the book s all Afra, the second half of the book s largely Damia, the Rowan lurks around being moody and pregnant and fussy, Raven flits in and out like the high school quarterback, adored by all Boring Boring boring boring Romance novels in spaaaaaaaaace

    This book is told through the POV of the man who babysits, befriends and eventually has babies with Damia, the Rowan s psychic daughter Boring as only McCaffrey can manage.

    Guilty pleasure reading You know it is when you open the book and the inside of the cover is coated in unicorn stickers that you put there when you were eleven.If I were reading it for the first time now, at the age of coughcough , I probably wouldn t have enjoyed it As it is, I ve always skimmed this bookthan read it from cover to cover 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 I ve just always loved Afra and the com Guilty pleasure reading You know it is when you open the book and the inside of the cover is coated in unicorn stickers that you put there when you were eleven.If I were reading it for the first time now, at the age of coughcough , I probably wouldn t have enjoyed it As it is, I ve always skimmed this bookthan read it from cover to cover 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 I ve just always loved Afra and the completely romanticized and unrealistic love he has for Damia.The alien sub plots I could do without, as they were basically only put in there to traumatize Damia

    I started this series last year and am so happy to have finally read the 2nd installment McCaffrey has created a deeply imaginative world that has all the best bits of a good sci fi telekinesis, telepathy, CATS, aliens, teleportation, CATS, and just enough romance and sex to mature what could have turned out to be childish, into an edgy, emotion filled, chronicle of a Talented family s adventures.

    So Continuing with the re read of this series after choosing to re read The Rowan as the story of some highly dysfunctional people rather than as a grand romance, I read the first sequel as the story of how their children particularly their second daughter third child had to learn how to deal with the world and their own psionic talents In the case of the third child not very well, at first Her two older siblings had this weird sibling bond and they tended to leave her out of thei So Continuing with the re read of this series after choosing to re read The Rowan as the story of some highly dysfunctional people rather than as a grand romance, I read the first sequel as the story of how their children particularly their second daughter third child had to learn how to deal with the world and their own psionic talents In the case of the third child not very well, at first Her two older siblings had this weird sibling bond and they tended to leave her out of their games So her mother had the bright idea of having another baby, except she d been pregnant too much in too short a time, and developed gestational diabetes, and they had to pack the kids off to a different planet to live with extended family.To sum up really weird relationship dynamics The first part of the book is a reverse angle story it s many of the events of The Rowan from the point of view of Afra, one of the supporting characters Eventually, the title character gets older and we getof her viewpoint And we learn that Afra who has been her parents colleague since forever, changed her diapers, etc was just waiting for her to grow up Which is this weird mix of sane and creepy, you know It ends with him feeling renewed and able to manage a third generation of Rowan women Yes, that s a quote Gag me

    One word Logical Words like can t were replaced with cannot and the like It was filled with curiosities and possibilities, and it was certainly entertaining 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 It s incredibly well laced for a series of generations to pass, and the texts ties up perfectly It isn t boring but because it doesn t grab at your emotions there s no One word Logical Words like can t were replaced with cannot and the like It was filled with curiosities and possibilities, and it was certainly entertaining 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 It s incredibly well laced for a series of generations to pass, and the texts ties up perfectly It isn t boring but because it doesn t grab at your emotions there s no excitement of exhilaration either If you haven t read the first like me then don t worry about this one yet I felt like I was missing most things to fill in the gaps and was winging a fair bit to try and piece the story together I think if I d read the previous text first, this one would have flowed better but that smy fault The author chose not to enable readers like me and instead insists on a complete picture to really appreciate it So I think I will certainly go back and fill the gap I have marked the rest as to read I m not sure if that will stick but they aren t a priority I haven t been left dying to know what happens next

    3.5 starsThis is my least favorite of all the Tower Hive books, but I can t quite put my finger on the issue It should probably be called Afra too, but that s something else I do love the problems of dealing with Talented and gifted children 3.5 starsThis is my least favorite of all the Tower Hive books, but I can t quite put my finger on the issue It should probably be called Afra too, but that s something else I do love the problems of dealing with Talented and gifted children

    Yikes Holy internalised misogyny, batman From women needing a man to manage them to the fact that no one seems to care that a man nearly twenty five years older and her parents best friend wants to bang a teenager YIKES.

    This review is for the audiobook I have been reading McCaffrey series including The Tower and Hive since a teenager so I have read them a number of times Having the audiobook narration has been excellent Listening instead of reading made for a refreshing telling.
