Holly Barboabout this book: A goddess with a mission travels the ocean of Myrn. She takes the time to hide sacred fossils as a safeguard for the young civilization she hopes will grow and flourish. Her precaution is well thought out and her preparation necessary if Myrn is to survive.
As time goes on the baser side of human nature drives certain people to take advantage of those with less. Disease and unscrupulous people bring the adolescent civilization to the edge of disaster.
A wicked triumvirate of government, banks and industry leaders seeks ultimate control of the planet. Two men, M'nacht, his son Kes are investigating the legend of the goddess in hopes of saving the population. They and their researchers are racing to find the fossils she left behind. At the same time, there are others who intend to thwart their efforts if possible. Is it true? Is there hope for what appears to be a doomed planet? If they do find the tools the goddess left behind, will the discovery come in time?
