Humanx Commonwealth Synopsis: The Icerigger Trilogy by Alan Dean Foster includes all three Icerigger novels – Icerigger, Mission to Moulokin and The Deluge Drivers. The planet of Tran-ky-ky is an icy desolate planet and not the ideal place for a crash landing. But a kidnapping gone wrong causes Ethan Frome Fortune and his fellow travellers crashing into the planet. They are now stranded, cut off from civilization and must struggle to stay alive. In this trilogy, Fortune must confront terrifying predators and will form an alliance with a native Tran. While he looks for a way off the frozen planet, he helps the Tran gain admission to the Commonwealth and learns about their history. And just as he accepts that he will never get off Tran-ky-ky, he finds out that the temperatures are rising on the planet. This change leads Fortune to one more adventure.
