Book I of The Torin. Scott Gale crashes into a lake – how will he survive in this harsh alien landscape?  How will he escape the people with their strange powers?  He is in jeopardy – until he finds a place with the family called Brin’s Five. When Dorn saw Diver – as he calls Scott crash into the lake, he went to the rescue.  After that, they became friends – although they were of two very different species. Dorn’s family, Brin’s Five adopt Diver as their Luck, giving him a place in their society.  Diver must also learn their customs or he will endanger his new family.  Dorn fears that no matter how well Diver camoflauges himself, his strange pale skin, short arms and round eyes will give them all away.
