Reading guide

Darkover history period:
Against the Terrans-The first Age (Recontact)
What to read before and after:
This novel can be considered as standalone. But in fact, it is the first part of a three novels story (the second one is Thendara house and the third one is City of sorcery). For background information about some characters, you can also read Rediscovery, but this is not mandatory.
Notes:
This novel is really important as it introduces the Free Amazons. If you want to understand Darkover, you definitely must read this novel.
