Amazon.de

The eagerly-awaited sequel to The Heritage of Hastur and Sharra's Exile. Margaret Alton, daughter of the Darkovan representative to the Terran Imperial Senate, remembers almost nothing about the planet of her birth or her tumultuous childhood. What fleeting memories she has are fragments of terror -- a strange silver man and a screaming woman with hair that circled her head like a ring of fire. Now her work has taken Margaret back to Darkover, where she must fight against inner voices that are trying to control her as she unravels the secrets of her heritage -- and her destiny.

Synopsis

Haunted by fleeting, nightmarish memories of her childhood on Darkover, Margaret Alton flees her home with her uncommunicative, brooding father to take a job as assistant to musicologist Ivor Davidson, a career that takes her back to Darkover and a terrifying confrontation with the past.

For those who have heard of Marion Zimmer Bradley's tales of the planet of the bloody sun, this would be a good book to start with. It gives a synopsis of sorts of a great many of the previous books in the series, and while it's no substitute for those books, you'll at least have an idea of what's gone on in all those previous books. The plot, I have to admit, is something straight out of the pulp fiction school, and sounds like something Bradley has done before - but that doesn't detract from the excellent quality of the writing, something that's been sorely lacking in the more recent Darkover novels. Still, this novel made me want to go back and reread even those. Who knows - maybe I'll change my mind about them after reading this one.

When I was 18 I adored the Darkover series, so I opened this novel hoping to recapture some of that spirit. But I can't ever be 18 again, and I can't ignore all the problems that made this book deeply unsatisfying. The basic plot, for one, was already done (twice!) much better in The Bloody Sun. The characters are all fairly flat, with a couple of identifying quirks substituting for characterization, and none of them have much motivation to speak of -- instead of complexity, we have simplistic stimulus-and-response behavior that just doesn't ring true.
Even in the case of Margaret, our Heroine, there's not much depth, and very little emotion: we're told that she's feeling this way and that, and she thinks about her feelings constantly, but we're never allowed to participate in those feelings.
The transformation of the bitter hard-drinking Lew of her memories (which I found quite a plausible and interesting development of the character) back into Good Old Darkover Lew, everybody's pal and passionate good-guy, as soon as he reappeared was sudden, unmotivated, and made me wonder, if all he needed to make himself a happy, well-balanced man again was to come back to Darkover, and nobody minded his coming back, why didn't he do it years ago and spare everybody more trouble?
Plus, the confrontation with the Big Secret Villain, which should have been the climax of the novel, occurs about halfway through, leaving the rest of it anticlimactic, aimless, and rather pointless. (Lots more whining and histrionics all around, though and some seriously bizarre family dynamics.)
I will only mention in passing the clumsy prose, and the extreme padding that turn a sparsely-plotted book into a heavyweight for no particular reason.

Actually this is the first of the Darkovan books I had read. It was just sitting there so I decided on reading it. I think that if I'd starting reading the first of the Darkover books, Darkover Landfall then I wouldn't have read all the rest of the books. Marguerida Alton travels to the planet known to Terrans as Cottman IV with her mentor Ivor Davidson to collect folk music. They are really in for a surprise! All the new people they meet is awesome! But tragedy comes, Ivor dies. That's when the real adventure comes! Knowing nothing of her history Marguerida is surprised and frustrated. She is bowed to and everyone calls her "domna" which means highly honored lady. Marguerida decides to ignore it as best she can. Instead of finding why this is she finds an uncle, goes with her friend and guide Rafaella n'ha Liriel to collect folk music. She has a bout of threshold sickness and has to be taken to a castle where she falls in love with Mikhail Lanart Hastur! Her newly awakened laran is powerful and she gets a shadow matrix from the overworld. Her Uncle Gabriel moves her to Armida and that creates a number of problems. Her father comes to meet her! Read this and then find out the details and what else happens in Marguerida's new and exciting life!

This is the first Darkover book I've read, and I think that the rest of the series will turn out to be very promising indeed. MZB wrote the character very well, and you could really understand it. When she died, the series probably ended too, a great loss to the Sci-fi/fantasy world. If any of her relatives are reading this, you have my condolences.

I first discovered Darkover more than ten years ago and happily plunged in. After several books, I had to come up for air as internal inconsistencies mounted within the series. Characters' relative ages and degrees of kinship changed, as did distances and directions across the terrain.
Every few years, I try again. IMHO, this book encapsulated MZB's strengths and weaknesses in a single volume. Marguerida Alton is a vivid and likeable character, but the plot (or half-plot; I suspect the original manuscript was split into this book and _Shadow Matrix_, which I've not yet read) was essentially _The Bloody Sun_ starring her instead of Jeff Kerwin. Still, she's trotted out the same concept several times (_The Spell Sword_ et al.) while still managing to keep things reasonably fresh.
Another reviewer wondered about Jeff's reappearance as Damon Ridenow. MZB herself apparently forgot about her rewrite of _The Bloody Sun_, in which he first appears. In the original version, Jeff's dad was Arnad Ridenow, as the infodump in this version sets forth. However, the rewrite switched paternity to Lew Alton's uncle Lewis-Arnad Lanart-Alton, who was at that time the Heir to Alton. Jeff himself is (IIRC) some twenty years older than Lew's *father* in TBS, and yet Jeff and Lew show up here as nearly the same age.
This sort of thing drives me mad, especially when the inconsistent genealogies and chronologies weren't even needed to move along the plot of this book. If anything, the persistent infodumps slowed things down.
Without the inconsistencies and incompletion, I might've given this book an 8 or 9. As matters stand, a 6 is the best I can do.
