The Heritage of Hastur Darkover #18 Download  PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Described as Bradley's best novel by Locus THE HERITAGE OF HASTUR longest and most intricate of the Darkover books is a brilliant epic of the pivotal event in the strange love hate relationship between the Terran worlds and the semi alien offspring of forgotten peoplesThis is the novel of the Hastur tradition and of the showdown between those who would bargain away their world for the glories of star borne science and those who would preserve the special matrix power that was at once the prize and the burde. Before picking up this book I had read eight Darkover novels generally in the order of their publication What I wondered drew so many readers to them Some of them were truly awful while others were enjoyable but not great Then I got to The Heritage of Hastur and it has given me an a ha moment In previous works Darkover as a world was much compelling than any of its inhabitants whose personalities melted into sameness Dialogue tended to be stiff the narrative erratic Yet this fictional planet with its Darkovan and Terran populace in constant friction surrounded by the planet s native inhabitants who are at turns beautiful and deadly what rich material to mineWith The Heritage of Hastur Bradley has produced a tale with believably motivated and believable characters The complex plot involves two young men who uestion the society from which they come and to which they feel indebted Each considers casting off his destiny among the highest caste of Darkover and each must struggle with demons within and without before finding his pathLew and Regis have appeared in other Darkover novels both as older and younger characters but here we get to the heart of their transition into adulthood and their profound effect on Darkovan societyThis book and its place in the universe of Darkover novels is brought to light in an excellent introduction by the late Susan Wood in the 1977 Gregg Press edition Her comments about Bradley s earlier Darkover works helped me to understand my own reactions to them and helped me see that part of the reason I found them so poor is that they were written during a time when science fiction publishers expected uick reading uickly written happy ending paperback adventures The Heritage of Hastur gives the reader so much and yes it can stand alone without one s having read other Darkover books I recommend it

The Heritage of Hastur Darkover #18 Download  PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook N of ruddy sunned DarkoverA Note From the AuthorTo the faithful followers of the chronicles of Darkover whose greatest delight seems to be discovering even the most minute inconsistencies from book to bookThis book tells a story which a great many of the friends of Darkover have asked me to tell the story of the early life of Regis Hastur and of the Sharra uprising and of Lew Alton's first encounter with Marjorie Scott and the man who called himself KadarinThe faithful followers mentioned above will discove. Set on the planet Darkover a lost colony of Terra The humans who landed there have developed a feudal system of government and have interbred with the reclusive indigenous people Their new environment led to some families developing specific psychic abilities and becoming leaders of the governmentThe Heritage of Hastur relates the intertwined histories of Regis Hastur the future ruler of Darkover in his days as a youth training in the guards and Lew Alton son of a powerful ruling family who is bitter about having a Terran mother Both young men get caught up in political and personal struggles that effect how they view their sexual identities and psychic abilities They come into contact with a faction that holds a wild matrix from the Ages of Chaos a faceted gemstone that enhances psychic ability and in this case houses a dangerous power of its ownThis is not a book for people who have issues with same sex relationships But it is an excellent story of power vs responsibility love vs duty and the lure of powerful forces to lead people into horrible decisions This was and is top notch SF that was progressive in its day
