Ten years have passed on Tines World, where Ravna Bergnsdot and a number of human children ended up after a disaster that nearly obliterated humankind throughout the galaxy. Ravna and the pack animals for which the planet is named have survived a war, and Ravna has saved more than one hundred children who were in cold-sleep aboard the vessel that brought them.

While there is peace among the Tines, there are those among them—and among the humans—who seek power… and no matter the cost, these malcontents are determined to overturn the fledgling civilization that has taken root since the humans landed.

    " A fun yarn and sequel but nothing ground breaking "

    " Conforming is definitely not my way, but in this case I must agree with the majority of my fellow readers: the book is not bad on its own, but compared to the other works in the series it feels a bit like a letdown. Let's hope the whole thing doesn't degrade like another "Safehold"! "

    " Good, but not as good as the others. "

    " I'm happy to get any new Zones of Thought book from Vinge, but this was a bit of a letdown. It's an enjoyable book, but feels unfinished. "
