Den of Geek says: Chambers’ Wayfarers series is the pinnacle of “soft” science fiction in the sense that it sets out to be unflappably kind while also building a universe of sometimes-warring humans and aliens. Now she shifts to a different setting with a similar tone and careful attention to the soil that lets the human heart bloom.

Publisher’s summary: It’s been centuries since the robots of Panga gained self-awareness and laid down their tools; centuries since they wandered, en masse, into the wilderness, never to be seen again; centuries since they faded into myth and urban legend.
