Strang things were happening on the icy planet called Petaybee,Unauthorized genetically engineered species had been spotted.Geologic survey teams sent to locate newly detected mineral deposits were either coming up empty-or disappearing altogether. the locals weren't talking-especially not to the company bent on exploiting the planet.
Disable combat veteran Yanaba Maddock seemed to the company to be the ideal spy:the frailty that made her no further use to the mititary would be a perfect blind to allow her to get close to the
Petaybean natives.Mitaculously with her relocation to the arctic planet came a return of Yana's health and strength.The more she got to know the people of Petaybee, the more determined she became to protect her new home.

Back of the book says: "Strange things were happening on the icy planet called Petaybee. Unauthorized genetically engineered species had been spotted. Geologic survey teams sent to locate newly detected mineral deposits were either coming up empty--or disappearing altogether. And the locals weren't talking--especially not to the company bent on exploiting the planet.

Disabled combat veteran Yanaba Maddock seemed to the company to be the ideal spy: the frailty that made her no further use to the military would be a perfect blind to allow her to get close to the Petaybean natives. But miraculouslsy, with her relocation to the arctic planet came a return of Yana's health and strenght. And the more she got to know the people of Petaybee, the more determined she became to protect her new home.

For something strange and wonderful truly was happening on Petaybee. Something worth fighting for, or even dying for--but, especially, something worth living for.

Having read mos tof Anne McCaffrey's books, this one left a little to be desired. For those of us who love Anne's books,this one falls a little short of what we have come to expect from her.
