    This book wasn't badly written and if you asked me about any individual plotline then I'd probably tell you that I liked it The problem is that there were just too many plotlines The episode of trailman's fever and the research necessary to cure it; Francisco Ridenow's plot to get vengeance on Mikhail Hastur for as he sees it steal

    Another of the books Marion Zimmer Bradley plotted with Deborah J Ross ere she died I have to say that I really like the way Ross has kept Darkover alive and am getting over the fact that she doesn't write the way Bradley did She doesn't much write action scenes which is OK because she doesn't do them nearly as well as Bradley did and the exploration of human sexuality isn't present which is OK because Bradley pretty wel

    Lots of things resolved including a strong basis to grow into the future Terranan still lurking but now Darkover seems poised to deal with them when it happens Lots of icky things resolved damned Francisco Riden

    This took a very different tone from the previous three Darkover books probably something to do with the fact the co author was different Still it was an enjoyable tale of thwarted love and laran powers I do like the way that Deborah J Ross is taking this series and really hope that she continues the modern Darkover books in the same vein

    A good continuation of the series For a long time I have loved this series that deals with a low tech colonial world cut off from Earth for thousands of years that developed psychic abilities to offset the lack of metals

    Several pages into this new book it started sounding familiar and sure enough I had a hardback copy on my shelf I always check before I order so Im not sure how I overlooked this one But I read it again anyway It took no time at all to suck me into the story as always happens with Darkover books This is a seuel to Traitor's Son and concerns among other things the aftereffects of Lew and Marguerida Alton's actions on the way to R

    This book makes for an interesting seuel to Bradley's Traitor's Sun a story which I never realized needed a seuel The writing is excellent the characters mostly interesting and the plot better than fair in spite of a few uibbles which I'll get to in a moment It started a bit slowly and at first a few of the characters seemed a bit wooden esp

This book wasn t badly written and if you asked me about any individual plotline then I d probably tell you that I liked it The problem is that there were just too many plotlines The episode of trailman s fever and the research necessary to cure it Francisco Ridenow s plot to get vengeance on Mikhail Hastur for as he sees it stealing the Ring of Varzil from him the unrest among the commoners and belief that the Comyn are ignoring all their concerns the attempt to pull the Keepers of the Towers into being part of the Comyn Council so that they had a voice in affairs of government Domenic Hastur s relationship with his cousin Alanna his competing love for Ilona Rider and the way that Alanna seems to have had her laran channels locked down to prevent her from misusing her gifts Lew wrestling with the demons of his past and his attempt to find peace and the aftereffects of Lew and Marguerida using the Alton Gift in Traitor s Sun to rewrite the memories of the Terran assassination force and how it s obviously a violation of the Compact With all that packed into less than five hundred pages of course most of it is going to get short shrift And indeed it does I m not sure if I m disappointed in Alanna and Domenic s relationship or the trial of Marguerida The first is focused on a lot in the first half of the book then disappears almost completely for chapters at a time as the trailman s fever plot comes closer to the fore The second comes up in Lew s guilt over his actions but not at all in Marguerida s thoughts and then is resolved in less than a page After multiple books hammering home the Compact how important the Compact is how the Darkovans see the Compact as the true mark of a civilized society how it saved their whole civilization from destroying itself with laran based WMD I was really disappointed to see the resolution come down to Well I guess it had to be done so it was okay I m sure all the petty kings in the Ages of Chaos could have made exactly the same justifications for their own use of bonewater dust or fear spells Okay so what about the other plotlines The trailman s fever one is interesting since it s hinted at in the beginning chapter of the book before it flashes back a year and it s come up in other Darkover books and is always a serious threat In The Alton Gift a Terran remaining behind on Darkover helps the Darkovans develop a new vaccine since the Terrans developed a vaccine fifty years ago during the last bout of fever He has a lot of trouble with it though until Marguerida tells him that there might be something laran active about the antibodies that he acuired from someone who survived the fever After all the modern Darkovans are interbred with the chieri so they may have some elements of alien genetics She suggests using a Tower circle to create the vaccine after the Terran machines repeatedly turn on contradictory results and thus the epidemic is stoppedExcept there s an obvious problem there The Terrans stopped the previous epidemic with their vaccine It s repeatedly referred to as the vaccine that the Terrans provided to the Darkovans and since Terrans don t believe in psychic powers or at best think they re basically useless they wouldn t have consulted a Tower to make it There s no way that they used laran to make the previous vaccine and no way Darkovan genetics changed that much in fifty years so this was made artificially difficult to add drama but in a way that s obviously ridiculous Jeram s vaccine should have worked just fine If the book had half of the plots excised and what remained had been given room to develop I would have liked what was left a lot better As it is a lot of what is here is half baked or uickly and unsatisfactorily resolved when the book ran out of pages I liked the writing style but not well enough to forgive the contents
