Storn, a planet far off in the Milky Way promised a new start for the inhabitants of the seven sleep-ships. They awoke from a thousand years’ freeze to find all manner of problems which they eventually overcame, except for one–Winter.
Refuge (The Chronicles of Storn)
An abnormal orbit around its star, Magnus, turns Storn into an unlivable habitat of freezing storms the duration of an entire Earth year. For nearly 300 winters, the settlers retired to sleep cells to survive the dark and cold. When the cryogenic units holding the frozen zygotes they had brought with them to expand the settlement’s population failed, the reluctant women were forced to replenish the settlement’s numbers the old way.
Odd things begin to happen when children were born of women, not from the genetic material brought from Earth. The ruling committee ordered them destroyed. The only way to save them is hide them. Those who care, build what they call Refuge. Now, not only will they have to survive winter, awake, they’ll have to survive the trek to Refuge—and Winter’s come early.
