BIOMASS: Sky People
by Terry L Persun
The seed ship Argentina creates mated pairs to colonize habitable planets to carry on the human species. Zima and Lera are separated soon after their pod lands on Floral. While trying to navigate the ritualistic natives of the planet, the partner of another mated pair shows interest in him—complicating his authority and emotions. But there are bigger challenges to overcome, like starving people, battling factions of the same tribe, and a father and son who can’t come to terms because of cultural beliefs. Zima must find the strength within himself to hold his team together, sort his emotional challenges, and devise a plan to help Floral’s native people—all while surviving the natural threats of a newly discovered planet.
