Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This sequel to Shadow Matrix (LJ 9/15/97) continues Bradley's epic saga of the world of the bloody sun. The death of Regis Hastur, Regent of Darkover, signals the beginning of an uneasy time for the planet. As his heir, Mikhail, prepares to assume the reins of power, the relationship between Darkover and the Terran Federation reaches a boiling point, drawing the major families of the planet into a crucible of intrigue and treachery. Bradley's consummate skill at presenting complex political intrigue side-by-side with acute personal drama makes her Darkover series both involving and intricate. Highly recommended for most sf collections.
Kirkus Reviews
A new novel of Darkover, the actions occurring 15 years after those described in Exile's Song (1996). Here are the further adventures of former musicologist Marguerida Alton, after she returned to Darkover, came into her full psychic Gift, married the heir to the throne, and brought some sort of order to life at Comyn Castle. The increasingly totalitarian Terran Federation, however, has been pressing Darkover to become a full member of the Federation, mostly so it can get its greedy paws on Darkover's untapped resources. And when a Federation civil war severs communication with the central government, the corrupt, ambitious regional HQ Station Chief, Lyle Belfontaine, plots to grab Darkover by force. Fans will know what to make of Bradley's odd amalgam of technology and psi/magic powers, family saga, and power politics. One unexpected detail: Adrienne Martine-Barnes (Master of Earth and Water, with Diana L. Paxson) appears in the copyright notice but is mentioned neither on the cover nor on the title page.
