Zoya Kundara has lived on the space vessel Star Road for 250 years. As Ship Mother, she is awakened from Deep Sleep in times of crisis. Now the ship returns to Earth, finding it blanketed in a white mantle called Ice–a mysterious ecology of information-bearing crystals. To find a home for her crew, Zoya must approach the denizens of this new Earth: The Ice Nuns, who seek sole control of the physics-defying crystals; people huddled like moles in underground techno-warrens; and a mad and prophetic snow witch, who will defend the kingdom of Ice with power and immortal cunning. A Philip K. Dick finalist.
