Good morning all you book loving people! We’re thrilled to say Andrew Skinner’s bloody brilliant debut novel, Steel Frame, is out worldwide today! An epic tale of giant-robot battles, built around a personal story of redemption and healing, this must-read debut will stick with you long after you put it down!
It’s got robots; it’s got battles, it’s got crazy-as-heck impossible odds and a protagonist who has no clue what she’s up against when she’s sent to the end of known space to patrol something called ‘the Eye’…
Beautifully written and with a strand of powerful human emotion running all the way through (honestly, it had us all weeping as we worked on it), Steel Frame is set to be one of this years’ most memorable stories!
What we’re saying is… this is one hell of a novel, and you need to get it.

Rook is a jockey, a soldier trained and modified to fly ‘shells,’ huge robots that fight for the outer regions of settled space. When her shell is destroyed and her squad killed, Rook is imprisoned, left stranded, scarred and broken. Hollow and helpless without her steel frame, she’s ready to call it quits.
Rook’s cohort of prisoners are sold into indenture to NorCol, a vast frontier corporation, and she’s given another shell — a near-decrepit Juno, as broken as she is and decades older — and sent to a rusting bucket of a ship on the end of known space to patrol something called “the Eye,” a strange, unnerving permanent storm is space.
But they’re not alone…
