|Plot Summary of The Legacy Of Heorot|
They are 200 of Earth's best and smartest, send to colonize a distant world. The colony is perfect, self-sufficient, an ideal place to raise their children and expand humanity into the stars . . . They only have two problems. First, the secret no one talks about. Being in a frozen sleep for twenty years had left them with brain damage, some mild, some very bad. Second - there are monsters on their new world, and they won't believe the one man who has seen them. And killing the creatures only makes the situation get worse.
