"Verrons, the interstellar explorer, is infected with the dread "bloodblossom" disease, and exiled to the quarantine planet. But Verrons is not the kind of man to stay quietly in a depressing little colony of dying men and other humanoids. Together with Wells, a human from the ice-planet Talberon, and Tiehl, a bird-man alien, he strikes out across the surveyed-but-unexplored wilderness of the planet. All of them are cynical about the prospects of a cure and determine to live or die on their own"--Jacket flap

"A beautiful book, combining an almost mythic interpretation of ritual and magic with serious, credible science fiction."--Marion Zimmer Bradley. For these hundred centuries, women of wisdom and strength have mastered the sunstones to bring warmth and wealth to their people. But while the Brakrathi tended their stonehalls and valleys, others have traversed the spaces between the stars with less gentle motives. Like the arrogant Arnimi who study and measure everything but understand nothing of the human soul. Or the Benderzic, who ruthlessly harvest information from their army of child informants and auction it to the highest bidder. Until the coming of Darkchild. Until the end of the beginning of things
