What Really Matters
Kinahran (Moonfur to humans) and her friends are growing up, becoming apprenticed to the adults on the ship, and getting drafted to help gather interesting Stuff when the clanship stops at an uninhabited terrestrial planet. But when their mentor winds up wounded and unconscious, it’s time to call for help — but their signal is being jammed! Five young Kintarans, alone in the wilderness, have to find out if this is the work of pirates, or if someone’s claimed this planet as a homestead and thinks they’re the pirates. (This isn’t made any easier by personality clashes among the kids!)
