Publisher's Summary

On the planet Nidor the ties of tradition and stability were coming undone. Unprecedented things kept happening, and although nothing could be traced to the Earthmen, it was clear that the troubles had begun with their arrival. Norvis peRahn Brajjyd, unjustly expelled from the Earthmen's school, believed he knew why: The Earthmen were not emissaries of the Great Light, as they claimed, but demons from the Outer Darkness. He vowed that he would stop at nothing, even the most unthinkable deed, to break the hold that the aliens had on the people and the Council of Elders.

Interesting, but short – – and character development suffered.

The book was A creative piece, told through an interesting Landon’s, but characters felt more like a medium through which the story progressed rather than characters meant to interact with the story. The character development was certainly a rushed butIf you are looking for a good read, The Dawning Light certainly fits the bill. Religion, economics, cheeky plans: well wrapped into a short but good book.
