Light years from Earth, colonists land on a planet they name Avalon. It seems like a paradise -- until strange and terrifying native creatures savagely attack the Colony. It will take every bit of intelligence, courage and military-style discipline to survive…

PRAISE FOR THE LEGACY OF HEOROT by Larry Niven, Jerry Pournelle and Steven Barnes:

“The Legacy of Heorot may be the best thing any of those authors has written…Page-turning action and suspense, good characterization and convincing setting…The Legacy of Heorot has it all.” – The Denver Post

“A very good book…Many people who don’t normally like science fiction will enjoy The Legacy of Heorot.” – St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“Outstanding! The ultimate combination of imagination and realism… The best ever, by the best in the field.” - Tom Clancy, bestselling author of THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER


Civilization on Earth was rich, comfortable and overcrowded. Millions applied, but only the best were chosen to settle on Tau Ceti Four. The colony was a success, an idyll, the stuff of dreams, but beyond the perimeter the nightmare has begun to chatter.

5.0 von 5 Sternen ~slapping the last reviewer on the back of the head~ 10. Februar 2000
Von "nefer_s"
I believe you've missed the point. Unlike yourself, the authors didn't find it necessary to preach condescendingly on the evils of disregarding the natural order of the ecosystem. Instead, they wrote a grippingly graphic tale of the horrors endured by a group of people foolish enough to do that very thing. Point made through highly entertaining illustration will always reach a greater number of people and be far more memorable and effective than any pious, self righteous lecture, no matter how well intentioned.
Besides, it was a really good story... the kind you remember clearly and recommend to friends even years after you've read it. Enjoy. ~smile~

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Definitive Man against Monster tale 30. November 1997
Von Ein Kunde
I was so impressed by this book I still mention it in conversations with my friends. It vividly describes the colonization of a new world, and the hardships of the colonists, all well developed characters. It chronicles their battles with the supremely deadly Grendals - the most realistic and dangerous creatures I have yet to read about - leading to their spectacular victory. After reading this book you'll never feel threatened by Aliens or Velociraptors again; if it can't think we can beat it!

4.0 von 5 Sternen NIVEN & POURNELLE : BUY, BUY, BUY 15. August 2003
Jerry Pournelle and Larry Niven present a sound scientific background and superb, fast paced storytelling, as in their prior colaborations. Steven Barnes does a good job in characterization, which was one of the minor weak points of the two aforementioned authors.
The Story :
The planet AVALON gets settled by a mixed group: scientists, farmers, administrators and so on. The settlement is placed on an island before the coast of the main continent to hinder biologic intoxication with earthbound genematerial.
The island seems perfectly save, but one day comes GRENDEL :
An organism with capability of hyperfast movements.
A former soldier is the hero of the story, he kills the monster, but only after it has the violated the settler's camp and killed many people. Typically the survivors blame the soldier for the killings and so he finds himself another place on the island to build his home, alone.
The scientists of AVALON do research on GRENDEL's cadaver for an explantation for GRENDEL's abilities but only when they answer the most important question :
Where does GRENDEL come from ?
the book unfolds its true action.
I recommend this book and also its sequel 'The Dragons of Heorot'.
Buy them.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Legacy Amongst The Stars 14. April 2000
Von Mistrmind
After a 200 year journey aboard the sleeper ship National Geographic, colonist arrive at Tau Ceti 4 to settle and setup Earth's 1st colony. Unbenounced to the colonist, they've settled in an area where there is a delicate balance to nature. A disruption that causes deadly reprocussions as what are precieved species of fish, grow into a terrifying beast that threatens the existence of the colonist. Do they fight? Or accept the natural order of the planet and move somewhere else? The book is a cross between Alien and Jaws all rolled into one. Very riviting, and I had a tough time putting this novel down.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Fast paced adventure with some thought-out science. 30. März 2000
Von David M
The previous comparisons to Aliens and Predator are apt. At its heart this is a novel of man vs alien. It is a little slow to start but once it gets rolling it is difficult to put down. One of the aspects of the book that I found most intriguing however, is the injection of actual, well thought out science that is usually missing in most "killer alien" stories. Grendels make sense in both how they look, function and their place in the overall ecology of the planet. This is definitely a book worth reading if you are partial to the "shoot-em-up" types of science fiction.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Legacy of Heorot 25. März 2000
After having read other reviews, I just had to comment. Since when can't people just read a good book without looking for social "significance". It's a novel,people. Why not read it just for the pleasure. I was thoroughly caught up in the story and very much enjoyed it. It's fast moving and,in my opinion, scary. I have read several other books by the same authors and have enjoyed most of them too.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Legacy of Heorot 10. März 2000
Legacy of Heorot is an excellent sci-fi novel that has similarities to "Aliens" and "Predator". I think the book was fast-paced and intense. I thoroughly recommend this novel for any sci-fi lover.

3.0 von 5 Sternen By the books 10. Februar 2000
Von Nathan
While this was a very fast paced book with a lot of interesting parts to it, it didn't turn out very well.
The writing, especially in the first hundred pages, was very dry, to the point where I was thinking that it would be more fun to read yesterday's newspaper. While the language and writing style did improve somewhat afterward, it was still a little lacking all throughout the novel. While there were a few riveting or very real scenes, the dialogue pretty much didn't sound real; I couldn't picture real people saying those lines. Just as a quick example...the dedication -- "we are indebted to so and so for translating this poem. we are indebted to so and so for the maps". Straight from the heart. Moving on.
Again, this book was extremely fast paced, but there were quite a few flaws. A few of the characters were very well rounded, but I found most of the main characters to be quite flat. Many of the "plot twists" weren't very surprising, I had guessed the ecological situation long before all these "geniuses" came up with it.
Also, while all the little details were technically correct, it was too "by the book" for a science-fiction action/adventure novel. Everything was predictably placed, and the "grendels" failed to inspire much awe or fear in me.
While I agree to an extent with the reviewer before me ranting about the ecological concerns, these didn't really bother me so much...If I moved to another planet, I wouldn't care if the carnivores that tried to eat me and my kids were there first, I'd shoot now and try to get along peacefully later too.
Was this book great? No. Was it good, fast, and a fun way to spend an afternoon or three? Yes. Don't look for any deep messages here, but if you want a quick shoot-em-up romp with some sex and technology on the side, you'll find it here.

1.0 von 5 Sternen An irresponsible adventure novel ...
What Barnes, Niven and Pournelle have wrought with "Legacy" is nothing short of a betrayal of all that Science Fiction holds important. Lesen Sie weiter...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ranks up there with the best of alltime SF stories!!!
I keep reading this great book, again and again. It has an old plot, but timeless. Well thought out characters, plot, and the tension is riveting. It is a keeper.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Like a Grendel, the speed of this book is very uneven.
I'm a Niven/Pournelle fan but this one isn't as good as, say, "The Mote in God's Eye." There is lots of action, but some of it is hard to follow, and the spaces between... Lesen Sie weiter...
