Publisher's Summary

Recruited by an ancient race, a group of people from Earth colonize the lovely planet Ose in a far corner of the galaxy. Thirty-two years after the Founders settle the unanticipated happens. A small asteroid hits on the edge of the continent instantly throwing them into a "nuclear winter" weather pattern. Struggling to survive, the young culture slips ever nearer to a survival-of-the-fittest world.

In this climate of hardship, Marisily comes of age. She flees for her life after watching her mother die. Unexpectedly, she discovers the cave in which she seeks refuge was a hidden Ancient's shelter and the secrets within it reveal that she is a sage: a small group of seemingly unrelated people with heightened extra senses that are strangely linked to the planet itself.

The conditions reach dangerous levels as more citizens become victims of the outlaw bands. Marisily struggles to stay safe when she is targeted for slavery. A clandestine plan is devised to take back the society and reestablish the founding culture. Can they do it in time?

    "Not my cup of tea"

    I like books with vivid characters that I can identify with. The main character seemed very bland, and the others are thin as well. So when the desperate young woman finds the little hideout with geothermal heat and everything she could want it felt rather contrived. Then she surprisingly finds out she has the ability to make psychic contact with birds - and the bird turns out to be a really nice bird who understands her vocabulary and everything. This bird even goes out and kills another bird to bring home for dinner. I guess that other bird wasn't as cool.
    I'm giving up on this book - it seems like it is going to mostly about eco-this and eco-that and gender equality. I'm all for these things but I don't want to continue listening because it seems silly and I'm bored. I gave the story three stars because the writing is not terrible, and some may enjoy it, just not me.
