On a voyage toward the boundaries of the known universe, nine misfit academics seek out first contact with a shadowy alien race.
But the real enigma is the Nightflyer itself, a cybernetic wonder with an elusive captain no one has ever seen in the flesh.
Soon, however, the crew discovers that their greatest mystery - and most dangerous threat - is an unexpected force aboard the ship wielding a thirst for blood and terror...
Dark and beautiful art by David Palumbo brings the words of George R.R. Martin to life in a story of horror, murder and outer space that you do not want to miss.

'Long live George Martin....A literary dervish, enthralled by complicated characters and vivid language, and bursting with the wild vision of the very best tale tellers'
The New York Times
'George R.R. Martin is one of our very best writers, and this is one of his very best books'

Praise for A Song of Ice and Fire:
