After the crash of the ship Colony, 14-year-old Welkin was left for dead on the inhospitable landscape of a ravaged Earth. After being rescued by a gang of Earthborn, Welkin proves his value and becomes a trusted member of the Family. But existence is still hand to mouth. Dangers from bands of mutants threaten continually, as does the ominous presence of Colony itself. Inside the grounded starship, Skyborn inhabitants feed on their hatred of the Earthborn. When on routine patrol a Colony scout is captured by the Family, he reveals a secret: authorities on-board Colony have regrouped and mean to launch a final assault - to rid the Earth of the "savage" Earthborn for ever. But even Welkin - armed with his knowledge of Skyborn ways and methods - could never have been prepared for what he finds.
