This is the second worst Darkover novel. It's not flat out bad the way 'Forbidden Tower' was--it's half of a good novel and half poor plotting and too many loose ends. Worth reading because it sets the stage for the "Against the Terrans" cycle, the last three novels of Bradley's life which are includ Leggi tutto
I had vague memories about this book. Probably I didn't like so much the first time I read it. I have to admit it's a bit boring. Few things happen and it's incredible because, you know, we are talking about Darkover and Earth people meeting again after so much time! But, Lorrill Hastur makes a bad
Questo capitolo della lunga saga di Darkover è stato quello che mi ha deluso di più. Il libro è scritto con Mercedes Lackey e credo che l'apporto di un secondo paio di mani abbia inciso negativamente nella stesura del romanzo. Non è che voglio dare tutte le colpe a Lackey però ho notato proprio dell Leggi tutto
Interessante che lo abbia scritto 20 anni dopo i primi. Lei, MZB, dice di non avere inventato Darkover ma di averlo scoperto.
That's it? I first read Rediscovery years ago, and all I remembered before I reread it this time was that the Terrans set a whole forest on fire and...no, that was it. I didn't remember any of the characters or anything else that happens, and now that I've reread it, it turns out that's because noth Leggi tutto
When "Rediscovery" came out, I was delighted. At last, I thought, we can see what happened when the Terrans first came to Darkover! How exciting! Then I read the book. This book doesn't quite contradict everything written before, but that's not for lack of trying. A few inconsistencies are the ages of Leggi tutto
Over 30 years ago, bestselling author Bradley first wrote about Darkover--a frigid world where would-be colonists crashlanded centuries ago. Now, with almost 20 Darkover novels in print, Bradley has combined forces with bestselling author Lackey to write of the rediscovery of Darkover by a ship from Leggi tutto
Oh dear. This was terrible. There many, many logical problems (a blind woman responds to a girl's distress because she _looks_ unhappy?), the continuity was wrongtown, and the writing was generally clunky. It's as though this book was written just to fill in some gaps in the Darkover chronology. I'd Leggi tutto
I am a big fan of MZB and thought I had read all the Darkover novels, but somehow I missed this one, an MZB/Mercedes Lackey collaboration. This slim book was a bit of a disappointment, clearly meant to be a prequel to "The Shattered Chain" sequence. The characters (many of whom will re-appear or are Leggi tutto
The dread Leonie Hastur at the start of her career. Leonie senses the arrival of the Terrans, and touches off the revolution of Darkover's culture by saving the lives of their landing crew with her telepathy. REDISCOVERY is one of my less favorite Darkover novels. I've been listening to the ones tha Leggi tutto
