Freedom's Landing is a superb book by Anne McAffrey about the struggle of different species to survive together in an unfamiliar world. The Eosi are an alien species that invade weaker planets and use the people on them as slaves to either work for them or colonize new lands. Kris Bjorsen is a human who was taken when the Eosi attacked Earth. She escaped being a slave, only to be recaptured while trying to help a refugee Eosi. She is taken to a new planet along with about 800 others and forced to survive with limited food, tools and lots of unknown dangers. The colonists name "their" planet Botany after the English ship that helped colonize Australia with convicts, and together build a new society based on exploration, hope and freedom.
