In this unforgettable space opera, #1 New York Times bestselling author George R. R. Martin presents a chilling vision of eternal night—a volatile world where cultures clash, codes of honor do not exist, and the hunter and the hunted are often interchangeable.   A whisperjewel has summoned Dirk t’Larien to Worlorn, and a love he thinks he lost. But Worlorn isn’t the world Dirk imagined, and Gwen Delvano is no longer the woman he once knew. She is bound to another man, and to a dying planet that is trapped in twilight. Gwen needs Dirk’s protection, and he will do anything to keep her safe, even if it means challenging the barbaric man who has claimed her. But an impenetrable veil of secrecy surrounds them all, and it’s becoming impossible for Dirk to distinguish between his allies and his enemies. In this dangerous triangle, one is hurtling toward escape, another toward revenge, and the last toward a brutal, untimely demise.   “Dying of the Light blew the doors off of my idea of what fiction could be and could do, what a work of unbridled imagination could make a reader feel and believe.”—Michael Chabon“Slick science fiction . . . the Wild West in outer space.”—Los Angeles Times   “Something special which will keep Worlorn and its people in the reader’s mind long after the final page is read.”—Galileo magazine   “The galactic background is excellent. . . . Martin knows how to hold the reader.”—Asimov’s   “George R. R. Martin has the voice of a poet and a mind like a steel trap.”—Algis Budrys

3.0 Światło się mroczy
Kto nie zna tego pana? Nie widać rąk podniesionych nieśmiało do góry. Po „Grze o tron” George R.R. Martin jest jednym z bardziej poczytnych i znanych autorów na świecie i myślę, że to stwierdzenie nie jest przesadą. Często sięgam przy tak sławnych autorach po wcześniejsze książki. Jest to metoda, kt...

Intriguing story, well told. Nothing canned here. Fresh & imaginative. Strong characters. Surprises. Now for a longer sentence - made for a great summer read.

3.0 Dying of the Light
An interesting effort, but having read later books, not one of the author's best. An early book for him. I found the story a bit disappointing in its emotional arc, and the plot, while taking unexpected twists and turns, left me feeling disappointed. None of the characters were very likable eithe...

5.0 Dying Of The Light
Written well (1977) before Martin's highly-acclaimed but not-yet-with-an-end-in-sight Song of Ice and Fire series, Dying of The Light is a novel that shows many of the skills that that series has been appreciated for - complex interpersonal relationships, deft characterizations, believable world-bui...
