A father and daughter face danger on an Earthlike world, in this follow-up to Child of Earth from the Hugo Award–winning author.
Young Kaer and her family have undergone rigorous training in order to immigrate to Linnea, a parallel world characterized by huge horses, dangerous giant wolves, and a primitive culture. But Linnea has been disrupted by the Hale-Stones, a band of religious zealots seeking to convert other Earthlings to their native planet’s Christianity.
Amid this uprising, Kaer and her father, Lorrin, venture away from the training dome as part of a secret mission to restore peace to Linnea and free hostage Earthlings from captivity. Defeating the Hale-Stones means using every available resource to preserve the Linnean way of life, from advanced technology, to natural disasters, and even the Hale-Stones’ own religious teachings. And through the struggle for peace, Kaer is forced to confront issues about morality, loyalty, the bond of family, and the nature of intelligent life.
