|Plot Summary of In Search Of The Kee|
The espis is a natural phenomenon that occurs on the planet Doroon less than once in a lifetime. No Keeborn now living can remember the last time it occurred, but this natural disaster is now upon them and the human colonists they've befriended.
The coming of the espis heralds a time of great storms and flooding for the entire planet. It's part of the natural cycle of the planet, cleansing it on a regular basis. But woe to any creature that finds itself unsheltered when it comes.
That colony the humans built will never withstand the storms and floods, and the Keeborn are in such danger that they are doing well to find shelter for themselves.
