When a baby and its mother are killed while Cadmann and his only supporter are away on a hunt for the creature he believes is the cause, the colonists become increasingly irrational. The battle against the grendels has killed many of the colony’s men and left a surplus of women, and a new social organization based on bigamous marriages is taking shape.

When I was a third through I was planning to give this book five stars. The relationships smacked of lwgacy school boys’ fantasies.

The Legacy of Heorot (Heorot #1) by Larry Niven
Not that I’ve got anything against bug hunts, but the prose was oblique and occasionally opaque.

Also, the bump map is suprosingly devoid of artifacts. It would probably not be appropriate for younger readers due to the violence as well as the much relaxed sexual mores of the settlement. I simplified the geometry a bit, brought it into Zbrush, and worked in Zbrush and Pshop to detail the creature. Humanity has finally decided to reach out to the stars and attempt to colonize a new planet.
