Also known as “Beowulf’s Children”, this is the sequel to The Legacy of Heorot written in 1987.
Set 20 years after the bloody events of the first book, the first generation born on Avalon are now grown and eager to spread mans influence over the rest of the planet. But those old enough to have lived through the horror of the Grendel War fear that any expedition to the mainland could bring more death and destruction to their island community.
With tension rising between the original colonists and their offspring, the first expedition to the mainland encounters a threat far worse than grendels. Something that kills grendels.
With quality writers like this you know you’re in for a good read and this book doesn’t disappoint.
