(From the publisher):
Kyreol's mission to another planet and Terje's trip to observe their old river home both meet with unexpected dangers and an eventual melding of very different cultures.(card catalog description)
Riverworld was a planet of Eden whose people possessed the power of dreaming the future. Kyreol, daughter of a healer, pierced the vision veil to discover the ultimate truth - that her home world unknowingly hosted the way station of a vast interstellar civilization.
An evil star shone on Kyreol's first mission as an interplanetary agent. Her ship fell out of space, crashing on a lonely, mysterious moon. Rising from its endless plains was the white city - awesome, abandoned, eons-dead - a silent world of secret wonders.
Only her prophetic dreams linked Kyreol to Riverworld, but she was hopelessly marooned lightyears away. And she was not alone...
