Leviathan's Deep Author:Jayge Carr The battle for a planet bacame a battle of the sexes: the proud and powerful Kimassu Lady is a judge; she restores "equity". Her current problem is how to rid her planet of interfering Terrans and restore the island paradises to normal. — Admiral Gorky's problem is more complex. The Terran would like to know why Kimassu has not aged in years. And... more » he wants to possess her. But having Kimassu as his mistress is a dangerous step. Long life is but one of the aliens' many cultural, mental, and physical differences. The admiral is in for a big surprise.
The guests from Terra were not easy for the Delyene to understand. But it took a long time to realise the danger they presented. The Delyene may learn Terran words, but they don't understand the Terrans.
There are so many differences, their 'technology', their 'wars', their males unnaturally the rulers, their lack of all female virtues, especially honour. But the Delyene are outgunned, outmanned and outscienced; worse, they are contemptuous of dangers they cannot understand and will not see.
The Kimassu Lady alone finally comes to appreciate the danger these Terran 'guests' pose. They must be driven from Delyafam's shores.« less
