From official release/information:
Martin Martel, a young student, struggles against his extraordinary abilities, society, and the gods in the Tor reissue of L.E. Modesitt, Jr.'s Hammer of Darkness. Modesitt uses quotes from various imagined works to set the scene and tone of his novel. Martel, a young student, sent into exile because of his unusual ESP abilities and for daring to love the daughter of the Grand Duke, arrives on Aurore, a planet ruled by gods. Shock keeps him unconscious for an extended period of time.
