Cordelia Naismith, Betan Survey Captain, was expecting the unexpected: hexapods, floating creatures, odd parasites... She was not, however, expecting to find hostile humans on an uninhabited planet.

And can such an odd beast as love survive an interplanetary war? --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
