  • La Captive aux cheveux de feu (titre original : The Winds of Darkover) est un roman du Cycle de Ténébreuse, écrit par Marion Zimmer Bradley, publié en 1970. (fr)
  • Il signore di Storn (The Winds of Darkover) è un romanzo della scrittrice statunitense Marion Zimmer Bradley pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1970. Il signore di Storn è il romanzo con cui la scrittrice riprende il Ciclo di Darkover dopo cinque anni di silenzio dovuto al tiepido apprezzamento ottenuto con l'opera precedente, Ritorno a Darkover. A proposito del personaggio principale del libro, l'autrice spiega: «Nelle mie intenzioni la protagonista doveva essere una Libera Amazzone assoldata per combattere i banditi che infestavano le montagne di Darkover. Rimuginai per qualche tempo quell'idea, ma chissà perché non mi convinceva. Dovevano passare sei anni prima che fossi in grado di scrivere una storia sulle Libere Amazzoni.» (it)

In terms of the Darkover timeline, Bradley states in "Author's Notes on Chronology" that The Winds of Darkover occurs about four years after the events in Star of Danger. One the underlying themes of The Winds of Darkover is rape. Bradley provides her readers with parallel experiences – the rape of Allira Storn by the bandit Brynat, and the psychic rape of Dan Barron by Loran Storn. Both Allira and Dan are overcome by force and their bodies made to do things they would not have done by choice. In both cases, the perpetrators justify their actions on the basis of need – Brynat needs to marry Allira to legitimize his sack of Storn, and Loran Storn needs to protect Storn Castle. The reader is left to consider the consequences. (en)
