Reviewer: C. Campagna "apocalyptic hunter" (Montreal, Quebec Canada)After a spaceship crashes on an unknown planet, the crew decides to jettison the cargo, which consists of androids, on a continent and to settle on another continent. Some millenia later, the two races meet.
The droids have evolved very differently that the humans. The continent of the droid is divides into four parts, Hrumma (droids with mental powers), barbarian lands and two Djez regions.
The prose of Mr. Dalmas is very easy to read. I thought that the philosophy and theology behind the mental prowess of the droids was a little too much but as the story went on, it made sense and it didn't take too much reading space.
Although there is no surprise ending, I couldn't put the book away for the last 100 pages. The story is divided in small chapters and is a perfect companion for a quick reading.
Overall, it reminds me of the Spanish invasion of South America. Fortunately, the natives were able to defend themselves better.
