Series background: a human colony ship crash lands on the wrong planet. They name it Darkover and do their best to survive in a fairly hostile landscape. Over the centuries they forget their off-world origins and develop a vaguely feudal society. The nobility, called the Comyn, is comprised of seven Leggi tutto
This is the sequel to The Shattered Chain and begins directly where that book leaves off. It is less plot driven than the previous book; most of it deals with the culture shock experienced by the two main characters: Jaelle, the Darkovan woman who has been a Renunciate (aka Free Amazon) since she wa Leggi tutto
I'm on something like my third or fourth reading of this for a reason. It made me stop, think, and write things down. I started to keep a commonplace book shortly before this last reread; I didn't expect to fill six-odd pages with bits from Thendara House . I knew, when I first read it, that the Oath Leggi tutto
Thendara House is the sequel to The Shattered Chain and picks up almost immediately after that book ends, with Magdalen Lorne/Margali going to the titular house to live her initiatory period as a Renunciate and Jaelle, having married Peter Haldane, moving to the Terran Zone to assist the Terrans wit Leggi tutto
It's been a long time since I read Thendara House . When I first came across it, I loved the idea of a book in which strong and diverse women struggled with the big questions of technology, gender, sexuality, loyalties, belonging and even racism/xenophobia in a science-fiction milieu. I'd also been a Leggi tutto
Of all the Darkover novels I've read so far, I absolutely did not like this one. Marion Zimmer Bradley goes on and on about the same issues with the two characters Jaelle and Magdalen Lorne. Even the repetition of the routine at the Terran HQ was too much for me. I believe half of this novel can be
A fantasy/sci fi book tied up with social issues facing women. Cultural shock, bigotry, and even gender issues complicate this story. The story subtly draws you in and makes you care about the characters. A very engaging tale and worth reading.
Si la suite des aventures de Margalie la Terrienne, Jaelle la jeune Amazone fourvoyée dans un mariage avec un Terrien, Camilla et le reste des Renonçantes de Ténébreuse est tout aussi palpitant dans l'univers fantasy riche et mystérieux créé par Marion Bradley, nous y retrouvons aussi, par le biais Leggi tutto
Leia o primeiro capitulo e o epilogo, o miolo é completamente dispensável. (view spoiler) [Não leva a lugar nenhum e qualquer passo que tenta dá em frente no desenrolar é apagado no final.A história é estranha, se passar no futuro, mas essa civilização terraquia não chegaria nem na esquina do sistema Solar, é muita (hide spoiler)] Leggi tutto
I really love her books, and it was interesting to revisit one in 2019. THe book was originally published in 1983 and it shows. It became kind of an interesting artificat because so many of the things being held controversial (lgbt, women men binary) would not be written the same way today - the Ter Leggi tutto
