Publisher's Summary

The Earth has forcibly been taken from its orbit. It began with an extra-terrestrial pyramid on top of Mt. Everest. And then a "runaway planet" took the Earth as its binary. And now harsh generations have passed since the inhabitants last saw the light of their sun, Sol.Society has grown rigid. The meek lambs have inherited the Earth, even if it's a very poor Earth, indeed. It's a hard world for all. But Glenn Tropile is no lamb, and if his citizens finds out he's a wolf, it will be the wolf that goes to slaughter.

barely a four

This starts out has good old fashioned Sci Fi. The book is in two parts. Part one is 5 stars, Part two is two stars. Part one is a future earth with a highly rigid society structure. Part two is just weird.
