This is an exciting read about a group of bright and highly intelligent earth explorers who settle a world they call Avalon which has creatures beyond what they ever experienced on earth. The most feared is the grendel and the survivors finally settle on an island they name Camelot where they manage to kill all the grendels. As the colony expands, the population divides into two groups - The Star Born and the original colonists. As the intergenerational conflict escalates, Cadmann finds his leadership in the colony challenged by Aaron, who emerges as leader of the next generation. The Starborn manage to convince their elders that the mainland needs to be colonized. More surprises await the group as the variety of grendels increase (beaver grendels, snow grendels, and the more traditional river grendels)and unknown causes of death occur. More colonists of both generations are lost. I liked the story very much and recommend it to those who like fantasy/science fiction.

From back cover - it's been so long since I've read it --

A new generation is growing up on the island paradise of Camelot, ignorant of the Great Grendel Wars fought when their parents and grandparents first arrived from Earth. Setting out for the mainland, this group of young rebels feels ready to fight any Grendels that get in their way. On Avalon, however, there are monsters which dwarf the ones their parents fought, and as the group will soon learn, monsters also dwell in the human head.
