book cover of Windhome


A novel by

Earth has sent out exploratory expeditions in a desperate attempt to discover the nature of the alien force that wiped out at least one extrasolar civilization and now threatens Earth itself. One of the exploratory starships is stealth-attacked by the hostile aliens. The survivors, marooned among the pre-technological inhabitants of the icy world of Windhome, struggle to survive, to understand this harsh world and its few, grim people - and, somehow, to fulfill their mission. Thrown into an unwilling alliance with a Windhome outsider faction, exiled into wilderness, two of the human crew must live by this world's bitter laws, accept the ways of its people - and eventually make a terrifying choice.

Grounded in science, rich in external and internal discovery, with vivid characters for whom the reader comes to care deeply (and with a haunting cover by multi-award winner Julie Dillon), Kristin Landon's Windhome is The Left Hand of Darkness meets Black Robe with a soupcon of Alien.
