THE HAMMER OF DARKNESS
Genre: Science Fiction, General Science Fiction
Martin Martel has made the double mistake of falling in love with the wrong girl -- a duke's daughter -- and of having extraordinary esper powers. As a result, he's been banished from his
Because of his mental abilities, Martin doesn't immediately adjust to Aurore, where the use of esper power is much easier. He takes a job as a newscaster, denying his potential god-hood, until he can deny it no longer.
This is a fascinating book about the natural consequences of denying one's nature, and of the unexpected things that happen when action is forced but things may be better left alone. Modesitt is a wonderful writer, and this classic work is a fantastic introduction to his extensive oeuvre. (Jun., 288 pp., $13.95)
