Summary The Heritage of Hastur Darkover #18

Marion Zimmer Bradley æ 5 Free read Free download ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free æ Marion Zimmer Bradley Summary The Heritage of Hastur Darkover #18 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. The Heritage of Hastur pub 1975 and its immediate seuel Sharra s Exile pub 1981 are in some ways the heart of the Darkovan cycle they mark the end of the Comyn and the sociopolitical structure of Darkover as it was and as Regis Hastur comes into his own the beginnings of a new Darkover which would be penned not by Bradley but by her successors Adrienne Martine Barnes and Deborah J Ross from outlines and notesThe Heritage of Hastur details the events surrounding Regis coming of age amid the unleashing of Sharra the powerful matrix we saw before in The Winds of Darkover It is also a key part of the ongoing conversation about the position of Darkover within the Terran Empire In all these strands of the narrative the one common theme is responsibility for and abuse of power In a sense the true heritage of Hastur and all Comyn are called the children of Hastur is a heritage of extreme privilege and power and its potential for abuse as much as it is a heritage of responsibility As Danvan Hastur acknowledges In the far back days we were given power and privilege because we served our people not because we ruled them Then we began to believe we had these powers and privileges because of some innate superiority in ourselves as if having laran made us so much better than other people that we could do exactly as we pleasedAs the novel opens relations between Terrans and Darkovans have once grown tense and the key issue is the Compact an agreement banning all long distance weapons that holds sway throughout the six lowland Domains The Empire has technically agreed not to allow such weapons to be taken out of the Terran Zone in Thendara but Terran officials do not really take the agreement seriously or enforce it rigorously and they have allowed the sale of range weapons in Alderan territory realising that the compact exists to protect all Darkovans from the devastating matrix weapons like Sharra Again this conflict adds to the themes of responsibility power and abuse that inform all the narrative strands of the novel This narrative focuses on two young men Regis Hastur and Lewis Alton whose circumstances and experiences are in some ways counterpointed but in other ways parallel Regis is the grandson of Danvan Hastur and great grandson of Lorill Hastur heir to the most powerful family on Darkover the hereditary Regents of the Crown a vital role as many of the Elhalyn hereditary Kings of Darkover have been incompetent or even mad in recent generations But Regis doesn t want to be the de facto ruler of Darkover he longs for the stars Unlike the Comyn he is destined to lead he appears to be almost completely lacking in laran testing indicates he has the potential but that it has been blocked from normal developmentLew Alton is also the heir to a powerful Domain but unlike Regis he has had to fight to be recognised He is the son of Kennard Alton last seen as a boy in Star of Danger and Elaine Montray who is half Terran half Darkovan but of the outcast Aldaran Domain who Kennard met and fell in love with on Earth Although Kennard married Elaine di catenas the most formal style of marriage the Comyn refused to acknowledge his marriage and Lew has always been treated by most as a bastard carrying both the barbarian blood of the Terrans and the traitor s blood of the Aldarans In order to have his son declared as his heir Kennard was forced to prove before witnesses that Lew carried the Alton Gift of forced rapport by forcing rapport on him an act that might have killed Lew if he did not in fact have the gift Only in the Towers where Lew proved to be a powerful and skilled matrix technician has he felt truly welcome although he has won some degree of acceptance among the Guards where he serves as an officer and his father s second the Altons being the hereditary commanders of the Guard The events of the novel do in fact begin in the Guard where Regis is beginning his duties as a cadet where Kennard is Commander and both Lew and Kennard s cousin and childhood friend Dyan Ardais the Lord of that Domain are officers as is Regis brother in law and Lew s cousin Gabriel Lanart Hastur Also in his first year as a cadet is Danilo Syrtis son of a minor Comyn house whose older brother was paxman and sword brother to Regis father both of whom were killed by bandits carrying Terran weapons As new cadets Regis and Danilo initially become friends but are driven apart by the actions of Dyan As cadet master he has the power to make any cadet s life a living hell and when Danilo refuses his sexual advances Dyan uses not only his official power but also his laran to torment the young man At the same time Dyan attempts a gentle seduction of Regis the difference in his approach to the two being that he sees Regis as a social eual and Danilo as a social inferior Before too long Danilo has rejected Regis friendship and driven to desperation by Dyan s action draws a knife on Dyan and is sent home in disgrace Meanwhile Kennard has asked Lew to travel to Aldaran to investigate the situation with respect to Terran weapons there under the pretext of visiting his Lord Kermiac and his other Alderan kinfolk When Lew who has seen Dyan in action before witnesses the public disgrace of Danilo and senses what was behind Danilo s reaction goes to Kennard in protest his father will not listen to him Lew leaves for Aldaran but with a heart filled with anger and disgust at the abuses of power he has witnessed Arriving at Castle Alderan he is welcomed into the family as the grandson of Kermiac s sister Meriel Here he meets his cousin Kermiac s son Beltran Kermiac s wards Thyra Marjorie and Rafe Scott and the mysterious Raymon Kadarin and is drawn into their plan to recreate the old pre Compact matrix sciences using the Sharra matrix As he works with Kadarin and the others training them to be a working circle he and Marjorie begin to fall in love despite the fact that Lew has determined that Marjorie is the one best suited to serve as the circle s KeeperRegis having completed his first year of training travels to visit his sister en route he stops at Danilo s home where the two renew their friendship and Regis learning what really happened to him swears to make it right On his return to Thendara despite being ill with threshold sickness a malady that often strikes telepaths whose laran has awakened he confronts first his grandfather and then Kennard with the knowledge of Dyan s abuse Kennard reading his mind and the images he carries from Danilo s mind is shocked but accepts Dyan s guilt He also realises that Danilo is a catalyst telepath a rare gift thought to be extinct and contact with him can stimulate latent laran and that contact with Danilo is what has woken Regis powers With the promise that justice will be done Regis returns to Syrtis with Gabriel who is to take Regis to Neskaya for laran training and then bring Danilo back to Thendara but they discover that Danilo has been kidnapped by the Aldarans Gabriel returns to Thendara to report the crime Regis promises to wait for Gabriel at his seat in Edelweiss but instead he pauses long enough to name Gabriel and Javanne s youngest son his heir and sets out to find DaniloIn Alderan Lew is horrified when he learns that Beltran has kidnapped Danilo particularly since he himself having guessed Danilo s gift had speculated about asking Danilo to join their circle and use his gift to help latent telepaths find their powers Kermiac chastises Beltran and when Regis arrives assures him that both he and Danilo are guests under his roof and will come to no harm and will be allowed to leave when the weather is better Lew comes to the realisation that working with Sharra is corrupting all of them awakening lust for power and dulling their consciences he decides that they must return Sharra to the forge folk and find another way to bring about their goals But when Kermiac dies suddenly Beltran imprisons Regis and Danilo and tries to force Lew to continue working with the Sharra circle Marjorie rescues the three captives and they flee Aldaran Castle Lew and Marjorie set out to bring word of the Sharra circle to Arilinn while Regis and Danilo head toward Thendara Lew and Marjorie are recaptured and Lew is drugged and now controlled by Kadarin returns to the Sharra circle As Sharra rages destroying the city of Caer Donn and the Terran Spaceport there telepaths across Darkover feel the impact and a force is sent from Thendara to stop the fires no matter what Regis and Danilo meet the party led by Kennard and Dyan on the road and head back with them toward AlderanMarjorie convinces Kadarin to let Lew recover from the drugs and together they decide that Sharra must be stopped even if it takes their deaths and the deaths of everyone in the Sharra circle to close the dimensional gateway that fuels it As they enter the circle and prepare to attempt it Kennard finally reaches Lew and adds his power to theirs The gateway is sealed but Lew is gravely wounded and Marjorie close to death with the strength of desperation Lew manages to teleport himself and Marjorie to Arilinn but it is too late for Marjorie Despite the closing of the gateway the Sharra matrix remains too powerful to be left on Darkover where its power could be raised again Kennard decides to leave Darkover taking the matrix and Lew with him hoping that Terran medicine can heal wounds that Darkovan psi power cannot The Terrans now aware of just what kind of long range weapons the Compact was made to control promise to do their part in keeping it Dyan accepts responsibility for his abuse of Danilo and names him heir to Ardais as recompense And Regis relinuishes his dream of the stars and takes his place as the Hastur heir on the Council Hard lessons have been learned at least for a time
