DragonDreamsJen’s #CBR4 Review #62 The Spell Sword by Marion Zimmer Bradley
Up until this summer, The Spell Sword was one of the few Darkover novels that I’d never read. Some of the other books I have read but do not own, yet this novel haunted me like some elusive magical creature. Thanks to one of our amazing local bookstores, Cover to Cover books, I not only own The Spell Sword, I have read a missing piece of the Darkover saga for the first time.
The Spell Sword is the story of Terran Andrew Carr and his adventures in the Hellers mountains of Darkover after his survey plane crashes, killing everyone else and leaving him stranded in the barren wilderness. He is urged not to give up by visions of a mysterious young woman who seems to speak to him telepathically, pleading for help. Is she real or some accident-induced hallucination? Will he discover his true destiny far from his own home or return to the safety and familiarity of the Terran Zone?
