This is a sequel to two earlier books, Hurricane Moon and Downfall Tide. The final journey of the starship Aeon has reached yet another world—a hopeful new beginning after the disastrous events in Downfall Tide. The first generation of colonists from Earth either perished or had to be left behind. Now their children encounter wonders and terrors, monstrous aliens and marvelous allies, in a place stranger than anything they ever imagined. It's like a Bermuda Triangle in space . . . half as old as time.
But even here, faith and hope endure, and love is stronger than death.3
