       Additional Information  
      Bang! With a single explosion, a sudden act of violence shocks a planet...

    Earth has sent its first wave of colonization vessels. Before descending into a new planet's atmosphere with little hope of return, Nocturne's first colonists have sent back a message: success, a livable planet around a long-lived sun.

    In answer a single ship arrives with less than half the requested supplies, manned by a class of people too different from those settled on the surface.

    After that... silence.

    A society forms and thrives alone. Now, a century and a half later, the leader of an unwanted people struggles against prejudice; a shrewd woman fights to overcome injury and to protect her place in the planet's power structure; and two young men find themselves caught in the middle of an ambitious political battle to keep power from shifting.

    Intricate and packed with intrigue... Nocturne is a planet alone, a startling tale of human psychology and the desperate nature of colonization far from one's beginnings... a tale of love, loyalty, naked ambition and fierce independence.
