    It had been so many years since I last read the Darkover series, I had lost touch and didn t even realize this new book would be coming out I am SO glad I found it First off, I have to admit it s not another Heritage of Hastur, arguably the best Darkover book ever, but it is a wonderfully written book and fills in some important gaps in the series covering the 2nd contact with the Terrans Most importantly this book explores the relationships between Regis, Linnea and Danilo, something I ve It had been so many years since I last read the Darkover series, I had lost touch and didn t even realize this new book would be coming out I am SO glad I found it First off, I have to admit it s not another Heritage of Hastur, arguably the best Darkover book ever, but it is a wonderfully written book and fills in some important gaps in the series covering the 2nd contact with the Terrans Most importantly this book explores the relationships between Regis, Linnea and Danilo, something I ve always wanted to learnabout True, the plot isn t exactly exciting or unexpected, but the plot is not the main thrust of the book itself As a young reader of these books in the 80 s, it s nice to see how muchof the relationship physical and otherwise between Regis and Danilo is explored, with loving care and sensitivity I can hardly imagine this book, which is in part a love story between two men, might have fared in the 80 s Th...

    Hastur Lord pub 2010 credited to both Bradkey and Deborah J Ross, but published ten years after Bradley s death, is perhaps the weakest of all the Darkover novels, at least in my opinion It introduces a few new characters who will be important later on, and sets up the next major conflict between Terrans and Darkovans, but the main plotline is totally unnecessary and relies on a great deal of out of character behaviour on the part of both Regis Hastur and Danilo Syrtis.First, the important Hastur Lord pub 2010 credited to both Bradkey and Deborah J Ross, but published ten years after Bradley s death, is perhaps the weakest of all the Darkover novels, at least in my opinion It introduces a few new characters who will be important later on, and sets up the next major conflict between Terrans and Darkovans, but the main plotline is totally unnecessary and relies on a great deal of out of character behaviour on the part of both Regis Hastur and Danilo Syrtis.First, the important stuff It s been about ten years since the events of The World Wreckers The Terran Empire is going through a major sea change in structure, leadership and philosophy Now called the Terran Federation, it seeks to end the days of protected planets As Lew Alton, still the Darkovan Senator, says in a message to Regis You will undoubtedly hear propaganda about how the new Federation will extend autonomy to all member worlds, increase interstellar cooperation, and pro...

    I love Darkover books I didn t discover them until the mid to late 90s, when I was bored at my then boyfriend s apartment and went digging through his bookshelves for something to read Once I started, I couldn t stop, going through his collection and then buying or borrowing the rest Honestly I m not sure if I would have develop...

    It was nice to visit Darkover again after many years away but I picked a very turbulent time to drop in The Terran Empire is on the verge of becoming the Terran Federation and dispensing with the designation of Protected World Darkover finds itself in danger of being taken over as a military base or being otherwise exploited by the Expansionist Party Regis Hastur is facing lots of pressure from his grandfather too who is determined to see him married with heirs Since Regis is in a long time It was nice to visit Darkover again after many years away but I picked a very turbulent time to drop in The Terran Empire is on the verge of becoming the Terran Federation and dispensing with the designation of Protected World Darkover finds itself in danger of being taken over as a military base or being otherwise exploited by the Expansionist Party Regis Hastur is facing lots of pressure from his grandfather too who is determined to see him married with heirs Since Regis is in a long time committed relationship with his Paxman Danilo this seems like a vain hope His grandfather suffers a stroke and dies but not before telling Regis that he has a nedesto older brother Re...

    Okay, so there s never going to be another Heritage of Hastur and I should stop looking for it Hastur Lord is the third in the Regis and Danilo series within the greater Dorkover series, but it is vastly inferior to Heritage and Sharra s Exile.I suspect that Deborah J Ross just doesn t write as well about Darkover as the planet s creator did after all, this is authorised fanfiction rather than the real thing But even reading the book with the leniency that fanfiction deserves, this is Okay, so there s never going to be another Heritage of Hastur and I should stop looking for it Hastur Lord is the third in the Regis and Danilo series within the greater Dorkover series, but it is vastly inferior to Heritage and Sharra s Exile.I suspect that Deborah J Ross just doesn t write as well about Darkover as the planet s creator did after all, this is authorised fanfiction rather than the real thing But even reading the book with the leniency that fanfiction deserves, this is an irritating read.I need to do some further research, but I can t remember Bradley ever using the term homosexuality to describe the relationship between Regis and Danilo, or those of other lovers of men and given that a major plot point is Regis marrying a woman who accepts and supports his same sex relati...

    Pros Focuses on Danilo and Regis, which is always good there aren t nearly enough books about them Story of a political coup is a solid plot idea I liked the way the narrative split gave both Regis and Danilo their say I m also a sucker for Danilo in danger plots, and this book delivered.Cons Ross isn t that good at action scenes, and...

    I love Darkover It s one of those created world like Barsoom, and Hogwarts and Middle Earth that have substance On a sentence by sentence level Marion Zimmer Bradley was not an elegant writer, but she made this planet and this culture real Unfortunately this book just isn t making it for me It features one of my favorite characters from the series Regis Hastur and the time period I liked the best the clash when Earth rediscovers it s lost colony, but the protagonist is making choices I love Darkover It s one of those created world like Barsoom, and Hogwarts and Middle Earth that have substance On a sentence by sentence level Marion Zimmer Bradley was not an elegant writer, but she made this planet and this culture real Unfortunately this book just isn t making it for me It features one of my favorite characters from the series Regis Hastur and the time period I liked the best the clash when Ea...

    I really enjoy the Darkover novels much better than the anthologies This is a well done book with a few loose ends.

    Not the best of the Darkover books but an easy read.
