Format: Hardcover
The world of Darkover is a richly imagined place, with a long not-completely-remembered history, a society rich in intrigue and appropriate niches for many kinds of people, a technology solidly grounded in its people's unique laran abilities - in short, this is a complete world. A world that you can easily get lost in for many hours of enjoyment, a world so complete that at times you find yourself feeling that it is more real than the one we inhabit.
This book, the second entry in the Clingfire trilogy, is very much a book in the mold of previous books in the set, even though written by Ross instead of Bradley. Ross shows in this book that she has mastered not only Bradley's styles and methods of telling a story, but has found the 'feel' of this world, where she can make additions to it that fit. This book is set during the Hundred Kingdoms era, and deals specifically with how the Compact forbidding use of laran weapons that act at a distance was first formed. Varzil the Good is one of three main characters here, a man gifted with a very strong laran ability and a healthy dollop of common sense entwined with an idealistic dream. His friend and compatriot is Carolin Hastur, heir to the throne, who, while not as well gifted as Varzil, has the character traits needed to be a competent ruler. In opposition is Eduin, son of Rumail Deslucido, who was instrumental in destruction of two towers in the prior book, The Fall of Neskaya. Eduin has been inculcated from birth with his father's obsession with wiping out the Hastur line.

11 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Lynelle Lowcock-Jones on 8 Aug. 2003
Format: Hardcover
As an avid darkover fan, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It has filled in a lot of gaps in the Darkover chronology. Any follower of the darkover series will find this a must to read. I have just finished reading it and could easily read it again.
This novel is set in the darkover era before "the Compact" on darkover is created. It seems to coincide with the time period of the darkover novel "Hawkmistress" and is set just before the time period of the darkover novel "Two to Conquer".
The only complaint is that the novel ends with the future of a few of the characters, namely Eduin, left up in the air. Perhaps, his fate will be in the third book of this trilogy...

If you are reading through MZB's wonderful darkover books you could really give this trilogy a miss. The material is not particularly gripping, it might have benefitted from being a single volume. Some of the people who have taken up the Darkover banner have been very successful, not so much in this case.
