I have read everything this author has written. Marion Zimmer Bradley died in 1999. The world lost an amazing and far-seeing woman who was born in the 50s. Bradley brought an early feminist perspective to her world-building and this is present in all of her books.

This particular novel deals with the ongoing political struggles of a planet that does not have much technology according to Terran standards, but the small population of the Comyn (local nobles) have psychic powers and have used them over the years for purposes both good and evil.

I would not suggest this title for readers new to the Darkover series, instead start with another great novel, Darkover Landfall, which is the chronologically the first book.

Anyone looking for a rich, complex series with amazing characters and moral and philosophical issues that make you think would be well served by dipping into this series.
