Best-selling science fiction superstars Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle combine their talents with those of Steven Barnes in an extraordinary adventure of humankind’s first outpost in the farthest reaches of space.
Light years from Earth, colonists land on a planet they name Avalon. It seems like a paradise - until native creatures savagely attack. It will take every bit of intelligence, courage, and military-style discipline to survive.

Damn Great Book
Absolutely, I read this few years ago, and listening to it performed brings an entirely different element to it.
I love colonization books, and this one is one of the best thought out plots/story I think I have seen.
something to do with grendels and their speed I am sure
