Costretta a un duro periodo di addestramento sulla Torre di Arilinn per imparare a conoscere e a usare i suoi straordinari poteri, Margaret si trova lontana dal suo amato Mikhail, il reggente degli Elhalyn. Ma il loro amore dovrà scontrarsi con il fragilissimo sistema di alleanze che lega i regni di Darkover.

The Shadow Matrix begins shortly after the conclusion of Exile's Song. Marguerida - as Margaret Alton is now called - is at Arilinn, but her training is not going well. Unable to tolerate the high-level matrices for long periods of time, she is living in a guest-house. An adult of a decidedly indepe Leggi tutto
I really feel like this book should have been a few short stories rather than a single book, because a lot of it felt barely connected to me. One thread is Margaret's attempt to master her laran and avoid getting drawn too much in to the politics of Darkover's families, one thread is Mikhail being s Leggi tutto
I started reading the Darkover books as a child -- Star of Danger &c I have always enjoyed everyone, and usually have reread each several times. Exile's Song & The Shadow Matrix are special -- these have become standards to reread at least once every year. IMHO anything by Marion Zimmer Bradley is we Leggi tutto
Like I said in my review of Exile's Song, the Shadow Matrix was one of my favourite books in high school. I must have read it a dozen times. The plot is haunting and gripping. I need to read this book again soon.
Zeitreisen! Yihaaaaaaaaa. Da das bereits der Klappentext verrät, sehe ich das nicht als Spoiler. Ich liebe Zeitreisen und finde, es bietet so viele Möglichkeiten für Drama, vor allem wenn die Handlungen quasi einen Kreis bilden und die Vergangenheit schon längst Auswirkungen auf die Zukunft hatte, m Leggi tutto
Um, I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings, but... this book was... bad... Somehow we travel 480 pages with these characters, and for all that very little happens, even less of it interesting. We travel 480 pages with them, and their relationships and dialogues try to mean things but really don't. T Leggi tutto
I haven’t read any other of the books and picked this one up at an used bookstore. I got about halfway through it before I gave up on it. The writing and story wasn’t bad but I couldn’t quite get the connection to care about the protagonists. I still hadn’t gotten to any of the parts that were descr Leggi tutto
I loved this less this time round, more aware of bits were the plot seemed contrived. Saying that, my copy is dog-eared and well-worn as I like to inulge in this romantic fantasy. As an MZB fan, I like that each is a stand along story, but the whole combine to make the world.
Exceptional sequel I have been reading the Darkover series since the 80's. Really consistent and entertaining series. Recommend these books for the mature science fiction reader.
5 star - Perfect 4 star - i would recommend 3 star - good 2 star - struggled to complete 1 star - could not finish
