A story of greed, ambition and power versus honor, self sacrifice and courage.In the distant future, the tribal villagers of the planet Aotea have carelessly exposed a glimmer of their hitherto hidden wealth of pounamu, the most sought after commodity in the known worlds.Their peaceful agricultural existence is destroyed as powerful nations join the fight to take by force what is not theirs.The tale is told through the eyes of the main characters, including Arapeta, a courageous young warrior- de Percey, a keen Confederacy officer- Riki, a scheming, unscrupulous birdman- Logan, a brilliant, calculating ruler- and Madam Tapatahi, a capable and ambitious battler.This exciting and thought provoking book has wide appeal, exploring many themes from culture, politics and greed, to loyalty and romance.
