On Alliance Central, the world once called Earth, nothing breathes but man and the wind, and the wind is tamed beneath great domes. From here humanity rules a vast stellar empire.
When colonists in a remote frontier system are abruptly and totally wiped out by an alien visitation, every team sent to investigate vanishes. At last, reluctantly, a lone woman must travel with her disabled young son into this devastating silence. For reasons that become painfully clear, they alone can reach beyond the shadow cast by human civilization.
In this daring novel, full of romance, adventure and spellbinding ideas, Sheri S. Tepper casts new light on our understanding of life and love, good and evil.
