Description

Martin Martel is an exile in trouble with the gods in this SF novel by the bestselling writer L.E Modesitt, Jr now back in a new trade paperback edition. After finding out that he has unusual powers, he is banished from planet Karnak. Martin is thrust into the tranquil world of Aurore, vacation paradise for the galaxy. There he finds that the reality of Aurore is much different from its serene veneer. The gods are wantonly cruel and indifferent to the chaos they cause: are they really gods or just men and woman with larger than life powers? Whatever the answer, Martin Martel must challenge their supremacy to defend his life, love, and the fate of all mankind.
