Publisher's Summary

Darkover, planet of wonder, world of mystery, has been a favorite of science fiction fans for many years. For it is a truly alien sphere - a world of strange intelligences, of brooding skies beneath a ruddy sun, and of powers unknown to Earth. In this novel, Marion Zimmer Bradley tells of the original coming of the Earthmen, of the days when Darkover knew not humanity.

This is the full-bodied novel of what happened when a colonial starship crash-landed on that uncharted planet to encounter for the first time in human existence the impact of the Ghost Wind, the psychic currents that were native only to that world, and the price that every Earthling must pay before Darkover could claim him for itself.

it's a long series but I enjoyed it as a teen

I read many of these books as a young person and missed many of the books...as they we're not always available at the library. I can't wait to Audible the complete set now as a middle aged woman... :-)

I don't understand the apparent love for this book

So, fare warning I only got a few chapters into this book and returned it. It started out good, I really enjoyed the possibilities of being stranded on an unknown planet.

Damn the misogyny runs deep in this book through. The main character makes a few comments about women and honestly I didn't see it as that big of a deal, I read a few books where the main character is an asshole. The problem is when they switched over to the female characters point of view she herself started thinking less of herself than a man.

I used to love this book

Until I read MZB’s daughter’s book “The Last Closet”. After I read what the mother did to the daughter, I lost all pleasure previously enjoyed reading anything by MZB. I WANT NO PART OF IT.

I love the Darkover books!

The narrator was very good. The story moved at a good pace and held my interest.

Finally!

I love the Darkover books and have done for many a year. I’ve waited a long time for them to be on here. I decided to start at the beginning. A good book and necessary for information. I really enjoyed the narrators voice.
