Children of Ruin
The astonishing sequel to Children of Time, the award-winning novel of
humanity's battle for survival on a terraformed planet.

Long ago, Earth's terraforming program sent ships out to build new homes for
humanity among the stars and made an unexpected discovery: a planet with life.
But the scientists were unaware that the alien ecosystem was more developed
than the primitive life forms originally discovered.

Now, thousands of years later, the Portiids and their humans have sent an
exploration vessel following fragmentary radio signals. They discover a system in
crisis, warring factions trying to recover from an apocalyptic catastrophe arising
from what the early terraformers awoke all those years before.

Blood and Tempest by John Skovron
3/26/2020

Chris H
Because of the ongoing health crisis, we were not able to meet. We did, however, finish the Empire of Storms trilogy by
Jon Skovron. The three books were titled Hope and Red / Bane and Shadow / Blood and Tempest. The main protagonists
were Hope and Red throughout. Our 3rd times a charm theme was well represented, though all three books in the series
were very well done, with great writing as well as compelling, consistent characters. A truly fine trilogy.
