This is a great sequel to an amazing first book. The characters are great and the plot is well written without going overboard in the fantasy fiction department. One can almost feel himself/herself on-site, on this magnificent planet. Gone is the timid whining young woman as a resilient, fierce and determined woman emerges to lead the planet population as well as fight the invaders. Great book, a page-turner and I cannot wait to read the 3rd one. Definitively a 5 Stars rated book.
Fantastic world building!
Taylor Neeran has been isolated on Aeden for a silly mistake! The sentence was to punish her mother but she is the one in exile. Then she gets a message from her university to say that her treatise on the flora and fauna of Aeden has prompted the university to conduct a more official study. Soomak, the Aarden dreamseer, warns her about these new arrivals but neither could have expected the death and destruction they could wield.
The world building is brilliant and the use of Maori traditions is beautiful. This is definitely a stand out series that deserves 5 stars.
