Darkover is an interesting planet, with a lot going on, apparently! Hoping that the series gets recorded from the beginning as I enjoy Marion Zimmer Bradley's style of writing and would like to read more. I just don't like starting a series on book 9 (the most current one available on audio)!
Jay/Jason Allison is a complicated man. Jay completely turned his back on his childhood and its trauma even as he devotes his life to helping the people that, in the end, rejected him. Jason Allison just wants to live. Can the two men reconcile their individual personalities long enough to live as one and save a whole planet?
I enjoyed this story, I was invested in the characters, and wanted more when it was over. I can't ask for anything more from a story! The narration by Daniela Acitelli was enjoyable as well.
I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom! in exchange for an honest review.
The Darkover series blends psionics with science fiction if I remember correctly. The native Darkover inhabitants in possession of the psionics and the Terrans (I think, I haven't read much Darkover) largely in possession of advanced technology.
In any case, it's inexpensive (if not free), and a novella so it's not a long read. If you don't like it, you haven't wasted much time.
I have read all MZB's Darkover novels, and actually the Trailmen are discussed in one more novel, though I don't remember which one. The idea of Darkover was by no means fully developed when this book was written, but the roots were there, and the characters show up later as adults in fully developed and very good books written decades later. I strongly recommend that SF/F fans read this book; if you haven't yet discovered Darkover (though I find that unbelievable), this is a good introduction before you try to jump to The Forbidden Tower, which is an awfully long jump. I try to sort out which books are set in the Age of Chaos, which during the Terran occupation, and which after the Terrans leave and read that way, as MZB didn't write them in any kind of order and admits herself that her geography and history are somewhat muddled.
Buy it. Read it. If you don't enjoy this one, you have no imagination whatever and should distance yourself from science fiction, fantasy, and psychology.
