The Bloody Sun - Marion Zimmer Bradley6.66

The Bloody Sun was first published by Ace Books in 1964. The novel was substantially rewritten, expanded, and republished under the same title in 1979. Marion Zimmer Bradley's short story "To Keep the Oath" was included in this new edition and all subsequent reprintings.

Jeff Kerwin had spent his early years in the Spacemen's Orphanage on Darkover. Yet he'd never felt that he belonged there, for he was haunted by dreams of the world surrounding the Terran city. After being shipped back to Earth, Jeff finally returns to the planet of the bloody sun, where he hopes to unlock the mystery of his heritage.
