Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Three planets in deep space were named by their humandiscoverers to reflect their environments: lush andforeboding Jungle, which swallowed up an exploratoryteam; Stone, phenomenally rich in rare ore; and Moss,the most enigmatic — and dangerous — of the trio.

Joining her half-brother Paul, the famed linguist, on a two-person scientific expedition, Jewel Delis has come to Moss to observe the phenomenon of dancing light and to help decipher the strange musical "language" that accompanies it. But there are other mysteries alive on this exotic world covered in ever-shifting vegetation — and something more than illuminations has enticed her away from a disastrously overpopulated homeworld to seek answers at the universe's unexplored edge. For Jewel herself is a question mark with a radical agenda that will put her at perilous odds with her planet's ruling powers — and with the inscrutable alien races she encounters — as she risks all for justice for the endangered beasts of the Earth.

Synopsis:

From the acclaimed author of "The Visitor"--"one of SF's most distinctive voices" ("Locus")--comes this enthralling tale of adventure, discovery, evolution, and what it means to be human.
