A misunderstood squad of historians refugee the last seven survivors on a dying Earth to Palingensia, a world where animals-with-human-brains have evolved ways to live without killing of any kind (not even of plants). Can these ex-pats from Earth learn to coexist without violence, or does 'human nature' doom them to destroy their second chance at paradise?
