He designs computer software
that enables mortals to speak with gods. He reconfigures the Queen body chemistry
so that she can mate with a divine beast and give birth to the Minotaur. He
programs a constantly-moving Labyrinth that learns from your choices and keeps
you trapped in it. He is thirteen years old. They call him Icky, though his
real name is Icarus. Meltdown is a science-fiction cyberpunk treatment of
ancient Greek mythology, and a steamy tale of love, lust, anger and betrayal.
Young Icarus navigates through labyrinths of court intrigue, secret experiments,
and teenage passion with the Princess Ariadne -- while always seeking answers
to the great questions: Predestination or free will? How can he become a legend?
And what, exactly, is the sun?
