Nessuno su Darkover ha mai osato opporsi al potere dei guardiani delle Torri, che controllano le Custodi delle pietre matrici e difendono fanaticamente l'ordine feudale che vige sul pianeta. Nessuno ha mai osato ribellarsi all'ancestrale tradizione che rappresentano. Nessuno sino ad ora... La storia di due uomini e due donne che hanno osato sfidare un potere senza tempo.

And so I give up on the universe of Marion Zimmer Bradley forever. I don't do this triumphantly, mind you, but with a heavy heart. I must confess, I didn't even finish this book, only got about 2/3 of the way through, but it was no good, had never been good, and this is something I needed to face. F Leggi tutto

This book was a huge disappointment. The Mists of Avalon is one of my favorite books, so I’ve started reading the Darkover series. The first one was the Hawkmistress, which is quite good. Then, I managed to buy The Forbidden Tower. I live in Brasil and, like most of MZB’s titles, it was only publishe Leggi tutto

This has to be the best Darkover book ever written, even trumping Heritage of Hastur. Instead of battles, MZB treats the reader to an almost claustrophobic story of the twins Callista and Ellemir Lanart and their joint marriage to Damon Ridenow and Andrew Carr (a terran).

I had a strange memory about this book. It seemed to me that it ended in tragedy and instead it has a sort of happy ending. The story is a bit confused, mostly based on overworld and Keepers. In origin, Keepers could be men or women, when Varzil the Good was Keeper, the role was destined to men but
Why did my Dad recommend this book to me? It's basically about 4 telepathic wizards having an orgy to defeat the forces of conservatism. Clearly science fiction books written in the seventies went through some strange phases..
