Spaceship crashes in the northern part of a world which has primarily women leadership. Spaceship crew assimilate and build a kingdom.

The new kingdom is built around the technology but the technology is finite so they have to work with what they have and assimilate into the existing kingdom. I believe there are some angel references? I loved this series but I can't find it anywhere! It is driving me insane!

  • Was "Cat Women on the Moon" a novel first?

This reminds me of something by Modesitt. The Saga of Recluce, one of the books describes the coming of an advanced alien race called angels.

check the wiki


Is it possibly David Weber's Heirs of the Empire? It's the third in the Empire from the Ashes series, following Mutineer's Moon and The Armageddon Inheritance.

The spaceship contains 5 people (4 human teens and an alien) who are seen as Angels by the local, very low tech, civilization. The book details their struggle to help the northern regions rebel against an oppressive central rule, in order to access the technology which remains from the planet's original colonization (now worshiped as 'holy relics' by the people of the world).

You can find the entire series free online as part of Baen Book's Baen CD collection.

  • There is an important difference: the existing kingdom on the planet is NOT female-led, however the northern region rebellion IS led by one of the off-world human women.
