About the Book (Excerpts & Info):
For the first time since he had known Space, Halk did not look down on
the farm with loathing, with the contempt a prisoner has for his keeper.
Now he gazed down on those blue-green rows, as they massed into so many
geometric patterns, with something akin to affection, with the indulgence
of incipient nostalgia. The farm, after all, was but his father’s
eccentricity. And he, Halk Fint, was heading out, in a ship of his own,
for the new, for the exciting, the different.

A longing for life itself urged Halk Fint on; a desire to escape the
known for the unknown, to go in search of life in all its guessed-at
magnificence, in all its supposed multitudinous variety. Propelled too by
the fear that if he stayed much longer on the planet then he would miss
something vital; drawn on also by the feeling that somehow the future
held all the answers, and he knew life on the planet and the answers
weren't down there. He knew what he would become down there, and he
wanted something more, something better than that. Because Halk Fint
owned the unlimited potential of the young; and the planet was old and
limited in scope.

Such are the conceited aspirations of the young - so general that they
are always indefinable. Like all the young, Halk Fint saw himself as the
first of his kind; and the life he already knew didn't have anything new
to offer him. Suffice it to say that life itself, that ever-regenerated
mystery for the young, lured him out into Space.

This story is told in the third person from the viewpoint of its many
different characters - a young girl called Belid Keal, a bureaucratic
Head of Department called Munred Danporr, the young policeman Drin
Ligure, plus several others, and of course the two principal characters -
Awen Mendawer, a photographer, and the heroinne, the astrophysicist Tulla
Yorke.
Where the first book (with mystery, intrigue, kidnapping and escape) was
about 3 young men being marooned on a planet called Balant, this
installment is about a planet that finds its moon has gone missing.

At the same time that the moon disappeared all radio communication to and
from that planet was blocked. Within Space only farmers and cranks live
on planets. An unseen force destroys any craft that tries to leave the
planet, except the one Space police ship. During the investigation into
the missing moon, and its consequences, the principal one of which is the
building of a road though mountainous terrain for the convenience of
Nautili, there are 2 love affairs and many considerations upon the nature
of government and society.
