Reviews of Damia (1992)
Review by tollbaby (2004-11-12)
This was the first Anne McCaffrey book I ever picked up, and I loved it! Ten years after I'd originally read it, I sought it out and re-read it, and I enjoyed it just as much as I had the first time. The characters are completely believable, and one can sympathize with them quite easily. I would recommend starting with The Rowan (the first book in the series), but Damia is also a good stand-alone novel.
McCaffrey's mastery of characters is evident, and she weaves a rich environment for them. This is one of those books I didn't want to be ejected from on the last page, I just wanted to stay immersed in the fantasy and see how the characters developped further. Definitely high on my list of fantasy favorites.
