No way was that an accident...
Born into fire and chaos on a strange new world millions of miles from Earth, herdsman Peter owes his life to the heroism of geologist Mica.

But the precarious condition of their fledgeling civilisation causes tensions to rise in the rag-tag band of fifteen year-old colonists, and when Peter witnesses an opportunistic crime, he makes a powerful enemy.

When they discover that hidden perils lurk below the surface of the seemingly-benign planet they're trying to tame, a near disaster forces Peter to decide whether there really is safety in numbers, or if he should strike out with Mica in search of their destiny--and the chance to be her hero in return.
