Written by Andre Norton and Copywritten in 1970, this science fiction Offlas Keil and his neice, Roane, search for artifacts on planet Clio.
A classic Andre Norton tale. A small scientific team, father, son, and (glorified gopher) niece, hunt for Forerunner relics on an interdicted planet. They find much more than they bargained for.
Offlas Keil and his niece, Roane, had their orders: to land on Clio and search out its treasure.
Clio was a closed planet. Settled centuries ago as a Psychocrat experiment, its colonists had been brain-cleared, implanted with false memories-and conditioned to obey.
Keil and Roane touched down at Reveny, one of Clio's more archaic kingdoms. Roane didn't know it at the time, but she was to form an alliance with Reveny's Princess Ludorica in a search for the greatest treasure of all-the strange, the mysterious, the all-powerful Ice Crown.
