This book was written by Deborah J. Ross in the Darkover world created by Marion Zimmer Bradley; apparently, the idea and some of the early plot concepts came from Ms. Bradley before her death, but the majority of the actual writing was done by Ms. Ross. Nonetheless, it rang true as a Darkover novel Leggi tutto
Much better written than other collaborations in the Darkover series have been. Should titles be allowed to spoil the plot?
Ah, a good Ages of Chaos tragedy. Though, it's not quite either of those. Unlike Stormqueen! , The Fall of Neskaya is sure that the Ages of Chaos were another time, back in the past when things were terrible and everyone fought each other all the time and used terrible laran weapons. Not like these mo Leggi tutto
Marion Zimmer Bradley's 1999 death seems to have had little effect on her literary output. At least once a year, a new title appears in her name, title in her name, comes out. It's always by "Marion Zimmer Bradley and Someboyd Else." In this case, the "Somebody Else" is Deborah Ross, a pretty darned Leggi tutto
Apparently I had read this book at some time in the past but I didn't remember any details during this reread. This book was written by MZB's collaborator, and while she is quite good, there is definitely not the same flavor. And, frankly, I think the book could have used some editing to tighten the Leggi tutto
It was another good one. I liked the story very much. I don't understand how Darkover comyn cannot comprehend the danger in weapons made with laran . I'm happy because (view spoiler) [the Deslucido tyrant is dead (hide spoiler)] but I'm afraid of what his more dangerous brother could still do. I'm alredy onto the next one. Leggi tutto
Hmm. OK, still reasonably amusing. I did not buy the bit at the beginning where Ross wrote about how MZB had told her the story of what was to happen in these books, and I doubt anyone else will. It was quite unnecessary, and rather patronizing: she's dead! Of course she didn't write the damn book!
This was a decent read and I'll read the other two books in the trilogy, but it's not something I'm likely to read again. I personally prefer Ms Bradley's Avalon novels. The Darkover ones just aren't as engaging to me.
Of the clingfire triology this one is at least a bit MZB style; if you are in desparate need of an additional fix, stop latest after reading this and do yourself a favor and check with previews first if you can stand the way it is written.
Definitely has the "Darkover feel", but elements are just a bit off which show that MZB wasn't the actual author. Still quite enjoyable.
