They came to the planet to seek its ancient secret. They would be asked to pay a terrible price.
What bizarre change has come over the human colonists of the planet Aeran? Why have they forgotten their origins, and allowed their society to revert to a Stone Age culture that flourished on Earth thirty-six centuries before? Perhaps some strange racial memory has been awakened. Or is there a more alien reason for the change, embodied in the symbol of their oracle, the Earthwind?
Elspeth Mueller and Peter Ashka have both come to the planet to seek the truth behind the Earthwind. But they have brought with them the seeds of their own slow destruction. Their quest is a race against time: for it is Time itself that holds the key to the mystery, and Time itself that will soon destroy them.
