A gripping, far-future retelling of Beowulf from an award-winning author, perfect for fans of Richard K. Morgan

Yorick never wanted to see his homeworld again. Thirty years later, he finds himself sent back to the icy mining colony as a company man–and he can’t leave this frozen rock in the dust until he neutralizes the threat. A vicious, long-forgotten machine has newly thawed from the ice, and it seems to have a mind of its own.

But as Yorick plumbs the depths of of the mines and his own past, he finds a tangled conspiracy that’s much more than he bargained for–and its source is closer to home than he ever could have guessed.
