Overview

Commando-Colonel Islaen Connor is working undercover to investigate an illegal colony on the planet Vishnu. Warned by her foremost opponent in the recent galactic War, War Prince and former Arcturian admiral Varn Tarl Sogan, the pair escape ambush and flee into the unexplored wild country beyond the young settlement. There, as they struggle to survive in a harsh, perilous land, they discover the living terror against which all Vishnu’s other life forms have been forced to adapt. Their presence unknown by interstellar authorities and, therefore, unsupported, the innocent colonists face certain and gruesome annihilation unless Connor and Sogan can raise the alarm in time and then conquer in the desperate battle they must wage to hold back and defeat a foe that they know to be of nearly elemental power in its hunger-driven determination and inconceivable numbers.

About the Author

Pauline (P. M.) Griffin has been writing since her early childhood. She enjoys telling a good tale, and since she always works with characters and situations deeply interesting to her, she finds the research as rewarding as the scribbling/keying. Griffin's Irish love of story telling coupled with her passion for history, the natural world, and the above-mentioned research have resulted in eighteen novels and ten short stories, two Muse Medallion Award winners among them, all in the challenging realms of science fiction and fantasy.

Surprisingly good. It's space opera, and SF romance - but the combination adds up to a pretty good story. The characters have something like depth to them, the problems they find seem less than completely contrived, the various enemies are of interestingly different types and dealt with appropriately. I like it.

Commando Islaen Connor has discovered what she needs to know about the peaceful planet Visnu - it's been illegally colonized, improperly explored, and was never cleared for settlers. Now she just has to stay alive until she can report the unauthorized settlement to the proper authorities - and those responsible for the colonists presence would prefer to see her stop breathing at the earliest possible moment.Varn Torl Sogan wants nothing more than to escape his past. But when he sees beautiful woman attacked he helps her out without considering what he may be giving away. Can old enemies learn to trust one another and manage to stay alive long enough to evade certain death? The innocent Amonites had better hope so, because the pair may hold their only hope for survival against a ravening hoard of alien insectoids.This was one of my absolute favorites growing up, and I still re-read it periodically. Strong characters and a lovely romance to go with the sci-fi.
