Publisher Description

In this unforgettable space opera, #1 New York Times bestselling author George R. R. Martin presents a chilling vision of eternal night—a volatile world where cultures clash, codes of honor do not exist, and the hunter and the hunted are often interchangeable.
A whisperjewel has summoned Dirk t’Larien to Worlorn, and a love he thinks he lost. But Worlorn isn’t the world Dirk imagined, and Gwen Delvano is no longer the woman he once knew. She is bound to another man, and to a dying planet that is trapped in twilight. Gwen needs Dirk’s protection, and he will do anything to keep her safe, even if it means challenging the barbaric man who has claimed her. But an impenetrable veil of secrecy surrounds them all, and it’s becoming impossible for Dirk to distinguish between his allies and his enemies. In this dangerous triangle, one is hurtling toward escape, another toward revenge, and the last toward a brutal, untimely demise.

big boui supreme ,

A paranoid and wretched tale

The title of this review should be interpreted as a good thing. All science fiction gets its entrainment value from examining what remains of humanity when all else is changed. This story stands apart from the others by picking aspects that I feel are often overlooked. Boasting a fascinating setting and a group of characters constantly shifting from friend to foe, this story is an excellent and emotionally charged price of literature and an interesting look at good old George’s early writing style.
