The Skaith books follows the exploits of Eric John Stark, "the Dark Man" - a character Brackett used in several short stories in the pulp era - as he tries to rescue his foster-father, Simon Ashton, who has been taken captive on the backwater world of Skaith. Stark is a great pulp hero, a man raised by semi-human natives on Mercury, who has learned to cover his animal instincts with a veneer of civilization. He is smart, strong, and without fear, and when he needs to fight - which is often - he unleashes the savage within.
Skaith is an old world orbiting a dying sun, growing ever colder. The encroaching cold has reduced a once-technological society to a medieval state, ruled by the Wandsmen. When starships arrive, the inhabitants of Skaith discover for the first time that they are not alone in the universe, and some dream of leaving. This threatens the Wandsmen's power, however, so they abduct the off-world representative, Ashton, which draws in Stark and sets powerful events in motion.
Reavers is the third book in Brackett's Skaith trilogy.Read more ›
Stark and his allies (even those who would be more than happy to stick a sword in his neck), have to try and do what they can to save as many people as possible.
Cities start to crumble on the dying world of Skaith and only mass evacuation can save the half of the population that will die.
The old powers would rather stay and see that happen, and our hero has to try and change it, avoid crazed madwoman, and stay alive in the process.
