Marion Zimmer was born in Albany, NY, on June 3, 1930, and married Robert Alden Bradley in 1949. Mrs. Bradley received her B.A. in 1964 from Hardin Simmons University in Abilene, Texas, then did graduate work at the University of California, Berkeley, from 1965-67. She was a science fiction/fantasy fan from her middle teens, and made her first sale as an adjunct to an amateur fiction contest in Fantastic/Amazing Stories in 1949. She had written as long as she could remember, but wrote only for school magazines and fanzines until 1952, when she sold her first professional short story to Vortex Science Fiction. She wrote everything from science fiction to Gothics, but is probably best known for her Darkover novels. In addition to her novels, Mrs. Bradley edited many magazines, amateur and professional, including Marion Zimmer Bradley's Fantasy Magazine, which she started in 1988. She also edited an annual anthology called Sword and Sorceress for DAW Books. Over the years she turned more to fantasy; The House Between the Worlds, although a selection of the Science Fiction Book Club, was "fantasy undiluted". She wrote a novel of the women in the Arthurian legends -- Morgan Le Fay, the Lady of the Lake, and others -- entitled Mists of Avalon, which made the NY Times best seller list both in hardcover and trade paperback, and she also wrote The Firebrand, a novel about the women of the Trojan War. Her historical fantasy novels, The Forest House, Lady of Avalon, Mists of Avalon are prequels to Priestess of Avalon She died in Berkeley, California on September 25, 1999, four days after suffering a major heart attack. She was survived by her brother, Leslie Zimmer; her sons, David Bradley and Patrick Breen; her daughter, Moira Stern; and her grandchildren.… (més)

So far this is my favorite in the series. Dense, detailed, engaging characters, great story line. Many touch points to other stories and the historical time line, groundwork laid for future stories. I hated to come to the end. I got no work done as I could not put the book down. ( )

I'm a fan of Marion Zimmer Bradley, but my affection for her rests not on the Avalon books, which I didn't care for, but her Darkover series. Darkover is a "lost colony" of Earth that falls back into a medieval society. Ruled by a psychically gifted aristocracy, after centuries it's rediscovered by a star-spanning high-tech human federation, giving the series a feel of both science fiction and fantasy. Most books in the series examine this culture clash and this book is no exception. This is a sequel to The Spell Sword, which focused on a Terran, Andrew Carr, who at the end of that book married Callista, a member of the Comyn aristocracy. The Darkover series as a whole features strong female characters, but it has enough swashbuckling adventure to draw the male of the species, and indeed this series was recommended to me by a guy (when we were in high school!)

Although some books are loosely connected, having characters in common, they were written to be read independently and were written out of sequence. This makes it difficult without a guide to know what story to start with. The Spell Sword should probably be read before this book, but that short novel was written just as MZB was coming into her own as a writer, and The Forbidden Tower, which received a Hugo nomination for best novel, is a much stronger and complex book. Andrew, Callista, Ellemir, and especially Damon, are my favorite characters in the entire series. This also is the most credible book involving polyamory I've read in science fiction, dealing with many of the problems I'd see in such a relationship fairly realistically--more so to my mind than say, Robert Heinlein who also explored the subject. And this is one of the few books in the Darkover series, along with The Shattered Chain and Stormqueen!, where I can still really recall specific scenes and conversations in the book to mind even decades after my read. So this stands as one of the best books in the series. ( )

Ellemir et Callista, les soeurs jurnelles, épousent les deux vainqueurs des hommes-chats : Damon et le Terrien Andrew. C'est l'heureuse conclusion d'une aventure et le début d'une double malédiction : l'union consanguine d'Ellemir et de Damon est menacée de stérilité ; Callista, destinée à devenir Gardienne de la Tour d'Arilinn, a été si bien conditionnée qu'Andrew ne peut pas l'approcher. Damon voudrait secourir Callista ; Andrew ne refuserait pas de rendre service à Ellemir. Tous quatre sont télépathes, ce qui devrait faciliter leur entraide. Mais la règle est très stricte : on n'utilise pas les pouvoirs psi pour changer le destin, sauf dans les Tours. Cette prudence s'explique par les abus commis pendant les Ages du Chaos. S'impose-t-elle en cas de péril ou de trahison ? Damon, Ellemir, Andrew et Callista défient la coutume, lancent dans le Surmonde une croisade pour la liberté et, unissant leurs esprits, bâtissent leur propre Tour, où l'antique tradition n'a plus cours. Qu'en dira Dame Leonie, la Gardienne d'Arilinn ?

My favorite Darkover novel. ( )
  LilleesUncle | Jan 19, 2010 |
This is a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine, but I guess I'm finally going to have to admit to it being one of my favourite books. There is something about Marion Zimmer Bradley's characters that makes them easy to care about and difficult to leave. ( )

Les évènements de la Tour Interdite vont influencer grandement la société Ténébrane... Certaines opinions exposées dans ce livre sont discutables, mais l'ensemble reste néanmoins très intéressant...
afegit per Ariane65 | editaScifi-Universe.com, Lujayne M. (Apr 23, 2003)
 
Ce deuxième tome du cycle de Damon Ridenow est d'un niveau bien supérieur au premier opus et tient toutes les promesses esquissées dans l'épée enchantée. Beaucoup plus dense, c'est une grande réussite qui se dévore.
