From deep space came a signal, sent just under a thousand years before: a planet called Jauhar al-Ajr, third from its sun and of a type that could be made livable for human beings, was being terraformed as an experiment in observed evolution. Aboard the now ancient ship sent to colonize the planet were embryos modified by genetic engineering: feline, canine, ursine, saurian. And perhaps--but only perhaps--human. For a thousand years these creatures have developed on an alien world--into what? What strange quirks has the planet Jauhar al-Ajr imposed on the devlopment of the species that on Earth became cats, dogs, bears, lizards...and men. After a thousand years of isolation, Earth means to find out. The mission will be dangerous, but it will be the making of everyone aboard. A lost world in space, ready for exploration, the world of KING DRAGON
