For 600 years, the powerful Tevar colony has mistrusted and feared the small group of aliens called the farborns. Marooned on an isolated planet for reasons now lost to generations, the farborns endure bigotry and accusations of practicing witchcraft beacuse of their dark eyes and brown skin and their ability of communicate through mind-speaking.
Now as the enemy camps prepare for the cruel fifteen-year-long Winter, there is an even more serious threat. Nomadic tribes from the north have formed a massive army which is sweeping toward the coast, beseiging and capturing the Winter cities. Only an alliance between the farborns and the Tevar colony will enable them to defeat the new enemy and survive the Winter. But as blood mixes with the snow, an alliance of another sort determines the outcome...
