A whisperjewel summoned him to Worlorn, and a love he thought he'd lost. But Worlorn isn't the world Dirk t'Larien imagined, and Gwen Delvano is no longer the woman he once knew. She is bound to another man, and to a dying planet that is trapped in twilight, forever falling toward night. Amid this bleak landscape is a violent clash of cultures in which there is no code of honor--and the hunter and the hunted are often interchangeable.
Caught up in a dangerous triangle, Gwen is in need of Dirk's protection, and he will do anything to keep her safe, even if it means challenging the barbaric man who has claimed her--and his cunning cohort. But an impenetrable veil of secrecy surrounds them all, and it's becoming impossible for Dirk to distinguish between his allies and his enemies. While each will fight to stay alive, one is waiting for escape, one for revenge, and another for a brutal, untimely demise.

Well-written, as usual with Martin, even though this dates back to the 70's, I believe. I listened to the audio version with Iain Glen, so that made it doubly enjoyable. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Beth Buechler

Constantly incomprehensive actions taken by protagonists. Had to stop reading it 3/4 way through, too annoying and boring.Published 2 months ago by Benjamin Ståhl
I've been reading books since I was five years old. I cut my eyeteeth on Hawthorne, Wells, and Verne. During my teens I moved to Heinlein, Lovecraft, Poe, and L'Engle. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Zorbear
The book was very slow in developing and when it did it was lackluster at best. The characters were not very compelling. I was glad when the book came to an end.Published 3 months ago by paul ledford
