Set in the far future, on the tribal world of Dodona, this debut science fiction novel tells the story of Tian, a young hunter struggling with loss of her childhood lover who disappeared under mysterious circumstances. When Tian's tribe is threatened by violent slavers, she receives help from a Watcher—a monstrous, mythical creature who is actually a genetically enhanced anthropologist from an advanced civilization. Through the juxtaposition of the pre-civilization tribes and the technologically advanced society of the Watchers, the novel explores themes of the role of ideology and tradition in daily life.
