When archeologist Gav Gendin finds an Ancient starship and a stasis chamber with a living member of the extinct alien race inside, he knows something strange is going on. Visions aren’t the way archeologists uncover artifacts, but that’s what guided him there.
The discovery should be his greatest triumph. Instead, it ends in disaster and leads to his son, Siv, being placed in cryogenic sleep.
A century later, Siv wakes to a declining world where you do what you must to survive. With the help of his father’s old neural-interfacing AI companion, Siv becomes the best procurement specialist on the planet. But his services belong to the criminal Shadowslip Guild who owns him. After a job goes sideways, the last thing Siv expects is to be offered his freedom. But there’s a catch. His target is so hot that foreign governments and religious extremists will risk war to get it.
