It takes place during the Age of Chaos, when the Seven Domains of Darkover are ruled as independent, warring fiefs engaged in a psychic arms race, developing deadly weapons through the use of their psionics and genetically engineering their children to produce ever-stronger mental powers. One of the casualties of this breeding program is Dorilys, the Stormqueen of the title. Sweet-natured, yet extremely willful and spoiled, she is denied nothing--not only because she is Heir to the Aldaran Domain, but because she is able to enforce her demands with psychically-generated lightning bolts. But as she grows older, she becomes less and less able to control her storm-causing abilities. Will Dorilys successfully master her body and mind...or will her mental strength ultimately consume her?

Great book, but not nearly as good as Bradley's 'Hawkmistress!' Be prepared to get slightly grossed out at certain parts of the book. Bradley has again woven an intricate society made up of many different kinds of people, and a plot that will keep you reading to the very end.
