Synopsis

Many times, Dumarest's dream of Earth has almost cost him his life. As he journeys from world to world, restlessly moving outwards towards the edge of the galaxy where his goal lies, Dumarest must be alert, watchful. For there are new dangers - forces more powerful than man - which threaten his dream.

On a planet where violence and superstition hold sway, Dumarest forges a bond with the prophetess Kalin. And now, more than ever, he needs her.

Kalin. The mutant girl whose mysterious talent for seeing into the future has already saved him from Bloodtime on Logis, from space-disaster, from slavery on desolate Chron.

Kalin. Who can foretell the terrors yet to come.

  1. Nocturne
    One of the best of the Dumarest books. I began reading this series after a long interest in the early (and continuing) role playing game Traveller, which heavily borrows from this series. It's easy to see the echoes of Leigh Brackett's Erik John Stark in the hero, Earl Dumarest -- his feral will to survive, his passionate conflict with the organized "powers that be" that represent domination and oppression (Brackett's Wandsmen in the Skaith novels, Tubb's Cyclan.) Still, there's a vibrancy and immediacy in the hero that starts with nothing, and pretty much ends up there every time. Some of the later books lapse into formula, but the early books vibrate with strong vitality. Highly recommended.
