I listened to this on audiobook and it was great.
The premise was a human ends up travelling to an alien planet. The aliens have a perimeter to their 'base' that is under constant attack from the planet's animals. It is revealed towards the end that there is some sort of signal being transmitted that is making all the animals and plant life attack a certain point on the planet (where the aliens are).
Other major plot points I remember: The human traveller falls in love with an alien. The aliens have a sort of virtual training environment that simulates life outside the perimeter, where plants attack you etc. There is a secondary alien group that the human ends up with, and although they are rivals to other group, they have a trade set up.
Any help much appreciated! Thanks.
