Humanity and creatures on an exoplanet
are bound by tragedy.
Humanity tamed the solar system and their bodies using powerful nanomachines. Now, Oya Valette and a group of colonists are looking for a fresh start on an extrasolar planet. Soon they discover that their new home is already populated by hostile, extravagant creatures that share a tragic history, not only with the human race, but Oya herself. If Oya can’t set aside her own prejudices and reconcile these two warring factions, both will become extinct.
"Tooth and Talon combines all of the ostentatious elements I loved about science fiction, interstellar colonization, cyborgs, genetic engineering, robots, dinosaurs but they’re used in the service of an immigration story. It’s ultimately a story about starting over in a new land full of opportunity and peril. It’s about the cost of assimilation and it’s deeply informed by my own family’s immigrant experience." - Alex Hernandez, author
