Product description

From the Back Cover

A mercenary outcast with a perversion no one cared to think about. (She liked males.)

-- A holy leader, who knows her people are on the verge of great upheaval -- and who wants to know more about this new tribe of demons.

-- A battle-mother, possibly the greatest battle-mother who ever lived -- if the rules of her tribe don't force her into a battle even she can't win.

-- A keeper of the secrets of history who would control the tides of fate -- if only she could.

-- A paleobiologist with a terrible sense of humor.

They were all revolutionaries, but none of them expected anything like this....

I bought this book because I'd run out of Pratchett and Holt books to read. Again.
What a result.
It's superbly written and the story is gripping right to the end.
Having no experience of Flint I approached this with an open mind and wasn't overly impressed with the first few pages of scene setting. But, and am I ever glad I did because I've literally been known to read 3 or 4 pages and then never pick up the book again, I persevered and by the end of the first chapter I was hooked.
The storyline is fairly simple in that it records the experiences of a Colony ship forced to crash land on an alien planet which leaves the survivors facing various trials and tribulations. However, where most authors would leave it at that and make a perfectly readable and entertaining tale out of it, Flint goes the extra mile and gets inside the aliens heads and tells the story from their point of view at the same time. Not only does this make the story far more interesting, it also makes the reader think about the impact the humans are having.
Of coursed he takes a few liberties, though I won't give anything away, but overall the whole thing works. And if a writer can't be allowed a certain freedom then who can?
Thoroughly recommended.

The situation (humans stranded on an alien planet) could be very stereotyped, but it isn't. The personalities of the individual aliens (within the parameters of their own biology) are developed as clearly as those of the humans. For a change, the humans act with reasonable intelligence.
