SYNOPSIS:  “The colony was established seventy years ago. The plan was originally to mine silver but there turned out not to be any. Now an uneasy peace exists on the island between the colonists and the once noble met’Oc family, exiled to this remote stronghold for their role in a vaguely remembered civil war. The family is tolerated, despite occasional cattle-raiding raids, not least because of the small . . . but effective number of weapons in its possession. Gignomai is the youngest brother in the current generation of met’Oc. He is intelligent, resourceful and determined. And he is about to learn exactly what it means to be a met’Oc . . . and what it means to defy them.”
