Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"From award-winning author Benjamin Percy comes an explosive, breakout speculative thriller in which a powerful new metal arrives on Earth in the wake of a meteor shower, triggering a massive new "Gold Rush" in the Midwest and turning life as we know it on its head. The first of a cycle of novels set in a shared universe"-- Provided by publisher.
It began with a comet. At first, people gazed in wonder at the radiant tear in the sky. A year later, the celestial marvel became a planetary crisis when Earth spun through the comet's debris field and the sky rained fire. The town of Northfall, Minnesota will never be the same. Meteors cratered hardwood forests and annihilated homes, and among the wreckage a new metal was discovered. This "omnimetal" has properties that make it world-changing as an energy source...and a weapon. A modern-day goldrush has turned the middle of nowhere into the center of everything, and one family hopes to control it all.
