(From the publisher):
Survivors searching for a home.
The fires from fire season are out, but the trouble's just beginning for the treecats.
On pioneer planet Sphinx, ruined lands and the approach of winter force the treecats of the now Landless Clan to seek new territory. They have one big problem - there's nowhere to go. Worse, their efforts to find a new home awaken the enmity of their neighbors - a stronger clan who's not giving up a single branch without a fight.
Worse still, Stephanie Harrington, the treecat's greatest advocate is not even on the planet. She's off to Manticore for extensive training - and up to her ears in challenges of her own there.
Can Jessica, Anders and the rest left behind find a way to save the treecats from themselves? Can they do it without exposing the treecats' problems to the attention of a newly arrived group of xenoanthropologists, a group whose agenda may not be as benign as it seems?
And can Jessica and Anders find a way to deal with their growing attraction that seems a betrayal of Stephanie, the best friend either of them have ever had?
