What if a society banished its worst nightmare to the far edge of the solar system, destined to struggle for the barest living? What if that life thrived and became far more than anyone ever expected, yearning to return? What if it didn't share your moral compass? The Glittering Edge duology describes the clash of forces when an advanced society that has filled a solar system with flesh-and-blood life meets the near-AIs it banished long ago. This is a story of love for the wild and natural life on a colony planet, a complex adventure set in powerful space stations, and the desire to live completely-- whether you are made of flesh and bone or silicon and carbon fiber.

Praise for this book

"Edge of Dark is an intelligent, thoughtful look at what it might mean to coexist with superior AIs that we ourselves have created. Brenda Cooper's universe is detailed, inventive, and ultimately dazzling. I will remember Chrystal for a very long time." - Nancy Kress
