I shook my head. Nightshirt or no nightshirt, I'd face this on my feet. I walked to Rhys; put my clenched hands on his shoulders. "Explain this! Who am I supposed to be? You called me Adric. I'm no more Adric than you are!"

This is one TRIPPY book.
You have this guy MIKE, but he's not MIKE, he's this Aldrich guy, he's on a planet called NARABEDLA which is sort of Earth in the FUTURE..... Sort of.......OH and it has TWO suns.

Marion Zimmer Bradley has written some very good books, but this isn't one of them.

Intrigue ensues. I wanted to c
