A space cruiser of Earth colonists ambushed and captured by the murderous Gerns. Left to die on a bleak, inhospitable planet. But they don’t perish. They survive. And for two hundred years, plot their revenge on the Gern Empire. A fantastic, imaginative space adventure by Tom Godwyn.
I remember reading this book in high school when it first came out. I was totally captivated. But several years later when I tried to find it again, I couldn't remember the title or who wrote it, I just couldn't find it. Now after all these years, on Amazon of all places, I saw a mention of this book which gave a description, and the book is free on Amazon. I immediately got it for my Kindle and lo and behold it told me it was also available on Audible. Remember this book is written in the 50s so adjust your thinking accordingly. Tom Godwyn is an excellent author, has written some books besides this one and most are found free on Amazon. So enjoy, this is an exciting science fiction book that's well worth the money.
