The planet Omeyocan may be the sanctuary Em and her comrades seek. But the planet for which they were created turns out not to be a pristine, virgin world. Vestiges of a lost civilization testify to a horrifying past that may yet repeat itself. And when a new enemy creeps from the jungle shadows, Em and her young refugees learn there’s nowhere left to run. They face a simple choice: fight or die.
In the midst of this desperate struggle, their unity is compromised from within—and a dangerous zealot devoted to a bloodthirsty god moves to usurp Em’s command, threatening to lead them all down a path to violent doom. @amazon
So they have landed on the planet.
I still love Em's character and a lot of the others, but crap on a cracker could someone get rid of Aramousky! This caused me to have a love/hate relationship with the book, but I guess we all have to put up with a jerk every now and then right? :-)
THINGS THEY NEED TO DO
•Find out if the planet is hostile.
•Find out if there are other living beings on the planet.
•Find out how to eat contaminated food.
•Find out how to protect themselves from some nasty things that come up.
Anyhoo, there are some creatures on the planet and I have to say I like the spiders and I love the Springers! They are really cool :-)
I'm sad to say that some of the kids I really liked get killed, but you knew that was going to happen. Some big time craziness goes down and well..... oh and the craziness is going to get even worse in book three!
On the planet are a lot of buildings and a conservatory. They find out a few things about their past or future, depends on how you look at it. They have to go to war and I think Em does the best she can to keep as many of them alive as she can, but she's up against a big foe!
There is really not much else I can say without giving out spoilers! Uggg, the agony! I liked it, that's all I can really say and I look forward to the next book. Or maybe not depending if everyone gets killed!!
I am the wind...I am death
