Bewulf’s Children by Larry Niven, Jerry Pournelle and Steven Barnes

The sequal to “The Legacy of Heorot”, it picks up where the last story left off. The characterizations are adequate if you read the first book. They are a bit superficial if you are only reading this book. The grendels are the turbo charged gator boogie men. The story development is recognizing that the impact the grendels have had on the colony is far more pervasive than their mere physical depravations. The interaction between the young planet born, the Earth born and the test tube babies provides the bulk of the character stress. The book illustrates that knowledge and understanding can be acquired and is necessary even when it is painful. I enjoyed the book and recommend both it and the prequel.
