For generations, the descendants of the powerful telepath known as the Rowan have used their various talents to help mankind - some are telepaths, others can teleport through space, others are empathic healers. The clan has grown powerful. They have led Earth to ally itself with the alien Mrdini, and together the two races have held back the predatory Hivers, a deadly insectoid species that kills all life it finds.

Professional reviews

"Ericksen deserves a medal for pronouncing the names of the weasel-like aliens, the Mrdinis, in the series finale of the Rowan saga. The conclusion of the saga of Angharad Gwyn, the Rowan; her husband, Jeff Raven; and their large family of telepathic and telekinetic children mostly involves character development, with very little plot. Ericksen never stumbles over the strange names and maintains a lively pace to pique listeners' interest. When there is some action, her voice adds drama and tension. Series fans will enjoy but most audiobook devotees probably won't. S.C.A. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine"
