Linesman #1: Linesman
No ship can traverse the void without the lines, and only linesmen can work with them. But only Ean hears their song - even if other linesmen disdain his self-taught methods. Then an alien ship is discovered at the edge of the galaxy. It threatens any linesman who approaches, except Ean. His talents may be the key to understanding this new force - and reconfiguring the relationship between humans and the ships that serve them.

Broken Earth #1: The Fifth Season
A season of endings has begun. It starts with the great rift across the world's sole continent, from which spews enough ash to darken the sky for years, or centuries. It starts with a murdered son and a missing daughter. It starts with betrayal. And it ends with you: the Stillness, a land long familiar with catastrophe, where orogenes wield the power of the earth as a weapon and are feared far more than the long cold night. And you will have no mercy.
