Brief Summary: The families of Storn and Hammerfell have feuded for generations and all that stands between Storn and total victory are the twin heirs of the last Lord Hamerfell, spirited away and then separated as Castle Hammerfell is destroyed behind them.
From 1970 thru 1984, Marion Zimmer Bradley published a Darkover novel every year save 1973, a total of 14 novels (13 new novels and the rewrite of The Bloody Sun). The Heirs of Hammerfell was not published until December of 1989, a five-year hiatus. 1989 is also the year that MZB's health began to decline. From this point onward, no darkover novel would be published that did not have a co-author.
