       Additional Information  
      Arriving from a faraway but destroyed planet, the visitors try to befriend and live among humans on Earth. They offer the humans their vast knowledge and technology, while trying to live among them in peace. The human-like aliens breed with humans. This crossbreeding produces a hybrid race that is hated, persecuted, and exploited. The offspring from the union of a Ringnonian male and a human woman produced a hybrid with unusual characteristics. Always male and extremely large, they were known as Ring-Men. At two years of age, a Ring-Man was the size of a full-grown human. They grew to adulthood in seven years, at which time they became sexually active. The crossbreed could not reproduce though. In this way, they differed from their fathers who were quite prolific. Eventually, the descendants are pitted against one another in a war unlike any in the history of mankind. Betrayal, treachery, and romance are intertwined in this riveting adventure. Ring-Men is the first book in a three-part trilogy entitled The Ringnonian Saga.
