Dyan Ardais is much more popular than I ever conceived when I first invented him. This story takes place in an alternate Darkover; I wondered what would have happened if Dyan had become acquainted with Regis before destroying himself in his eyes.--MZB

If I ever want to try to be inside a pedophile's head again, I'll re-read the book. Until then, it is getting archived - I wish I could remove it totally from my booklist. Practically the whole plot is Dyan's thought processes as he decides which young man to pressure into having sex with him, and how soon he can accomplish it. It was repugnant.
Darkover is my favorite series. This alternate story of Dyan Ardais was wonderful. Makes me wonder just how much this would have changed Darkover.
