Jumping around 40 years into the future Greentrees time, another ship from Earth arrives at the planet, at the same time as Karim and Lucy are winding up their hopefully successful infect the Furs with happiness project.
The only thing the locals know about the new arrivals they are clearly genetically enhanced, and military - 'The Third Alliance' was mentioned in a desperate broadcast 50 years ago.
The newcomers insight proves useful, but their society rapidly changes - and Jake has had problems with strokes being rather old now, and is a bit slow to realise what is gong on. Alex, the current colony leader doesn't have his experience and is also in love with the new bloke.
Throw in the Wild Furs, the Cheyenne society, and, of course, more alien assaults and this book is just as interesting as the first.
