Over four thousand dissidents emigrate there illegally and the young Hexamon agent, Olmy, is sent to investigate the people and their new world. Lamarckia's evolution is stunning and unimaginable.

Review by

I actually enjoyed this third book of the trilogy a bit better than the first two. It's a prequel to the storyline found in books two and three, telling the story of the earlier years of the protagonist, and his adventures on a harsh world that is little understood by its settlers.
