"This is the best Darkover novel in a long time.... It's a tale of culture clash, in classic Darkover style, a delightful return to a fascinating world, and a great read." --Locus on The Children of Kings

"Fans of Bradley will certainly want to read this flashback into Darkover history.... Suspenseful, powerfully written, and deeply moving." --Library Journal

Fans of Darkover rejoice! Ross's literary strength [is] her sensitivity to human needs and talents. - Publisher's Weekly on The Fall of Neskaya

Deborah Ross...does a superlative job [and] perfectly captures the Darkover 'feel.' - Sherwood Smith on Thunderlord

"[The Alton Gift] is a must for fans of the series, and reads as if Deborah has been channeling Marion's spirit." --Center City Weekly Press

Those who fondly remember the "Darkover" books (Stormqueen!; Hawkmistress!) set during the Ages of Chaos will welcome this new entry, which chronicles the aftermath of a conflict between two houses that can control the weather telepathically. - Library Journal Review on Thunderlord
