A coming of age story, and a world like you’ve never seen before, one that undergoes a metamorphosis. This is one of my favorites among my books, now back in this lovely re-issue.
The planet Null is not what it seems. On a brief stop over, Captain Eli Dammand will find his routine mission taking a disastrous turn. The planet is about to undergo a radical seasonal change, one that will hatch monstrous, rapacious creatures. There are few refuges from the rampaging alternate season. One is in the secret ahtran habitat far underground. It’s no place for a human army officer, as Eli will learn.
The other is in the nests of the monsters themselves. Not that his passenger, 14-year old Sascha, ever had a choice. . . .
