Publisher's Summary

For Jeff Kerwin, Darkover meant home, the home he had left as a child, the home he had longed for through the many years. Yet, he was to be terribly disappointed when he finally returned. First he learned that there were not records of any kind of either his birth or childhood on Darkover. And then, after he renounced his Terran allegiance and joined the natives attempting to free Darkover from Earth's control, the Darkovans accused him of being a spy.

Someone was betraying them. Had Jeff been conditioned on Earth for just that purpose? Jeff Kerwin began to wonder just who, and what, he really was.

my favorite Darkover novel transformed!

What did you love best about The Bloody Sun?

This has always been my favorite Darkover novel, and one of the ones I most wanted to be available on audible. I love the story, and the narration was great.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Bloody Sun?

The glimpses through time at what really happened to Cliendori and Damon's family have always affected me, because that book was never written, and I always wanted to know the whole story.

Good story, seriously overdone narration

I've enjoyed this novel for years, and looked forward to listening to it, and the narrator is able to convincingly do a variety of voices, but he does everything in a shout, which is really annoying and distraction. Everything is at screaming pitch, even dialogue that is meant to be conversational--the histrionics really get in the way.

Hated the false what Spanish pronunciations.

The pronunciations were given Spanish sounding accents to the point where even simple names were hard to recognize. Considering the fact that the characters are largely descended from Celtic people the Spanish was grossly out of place.
