|Plot Summary of The Rowan - Damia Series 1|
The Rowan loses her family in an accident when she's a small child, which awakens her amazingly strong telepathic and telekinetic powers. She is raised in the Tower by a group of telepaths, and eventually becomes a Prime--a strong telekinetic who can use electricity to instantaneously transport heavy loads across the galaxy.
She has some trouble going into space, because one of her teachers was afraid of it, but she overcomes this and learns to transport herself over immense distances. She mentally encounters a distant alien presence, which pretends to be in love with her. Escaping this threat, she makes mental contact and falls in love with another Prime, Jeff Raven. She is the leader of the telepathic crew in her own Tower on a distant planet. Settings include Callisto, Earth, and Alpha Centauri.

The Rowan is orphaned at a very young age, and no one, not even her knows what her real name is or who her parents were. Because she is a powerful telepath and telekinetic, she is trained to be a Prime, so that she can one day shuttle people and cargo from one planet or moon to another. The strength of her abilities causes the Rowan to feel lonely, separate from other people. When she is telepathically contacted by a man on a far away colony, she sees an end to her loneliness. However, first she and the other telepaths must prevent a space ship full of insect-like aliens from destroying the human race.
