Ancient tech draws dangerous unwanted attention in international bestselling author Kristine Kathryn Rusch's Ivory Trees, the thrilling new standalone novel in her award-winning Diving series.

When the discovery of a bunker reveals a treasure trove of ancient artifacts, interested parties throughout the Empire-from collectors to academics to researchers-want a piece of the action. But the finds draw attention from outside the Empire as well. Attention from someone willing to do whatever it takes to outmaneuver the Empire and secure the collection.

Set in Kristine Kathryn Rusch's expansive Diving Universe, Ivory Trees introduces exciting new characters and events to this powerfully written series, while also offering some tantalizing Easter eggs from previous Diving novels.

As suspense builds to a fevered intensity, this tantalizing new novel mixes the best of heist fiction and space opera and proves Rusch's place as a master of science fiction.

Praise for the Diving series:

"'The Death Hole Bunker' is as suspenseful and mysterious as any of the tales that came before."

-Item 202

"Escaping Amnthra is a full-fledged action adventure filled with high stakes and near-death experiences."

-Realms & Robots

"As I frequently say, of Rusch's stories, they are enormously entertaining and I can't wait for the next one."


"...a story of exploration of an artifact on an alien world, a bit reminiscent of the sort of story that Jack McDevitt writes."

-Eyrie.org on The Spires of Denon

"...Denon is literally luminescent in its depiction."
