Product description

Review

"Written for the adult reader but still appropriate for a younger audience...
Kudos...for his talent at depicting another world with a prosaic quality that gives the book a level of literary panache...
...a fine balance in storytelling, and a clear glimpse of a master at work."

-Nick Rossi, of Readingotherpeople.com and Goodreads.com



"...the writing style was engaging (and oftentimes, beautiful...
...themes...could be linked to real life;...the author...was really able to create their own version of what [artificial intelligence] meant...such clear emotional development...Even the secondary characters had their own stories...
The plot was definitely one of the strongest parts of the book...unique...different... blend of realism and futuristic...very thought-provoking...truly brings about the question of what you define as "human"...a great read...one of the best sci-fi novels I've read!"

-Catherine Hsu at Etherealpages.wordpress.com and Goodreads.com

Absolutely loved this book! A K Stone creates such a coherent world with detailed precision. This really feels like our world just a little in the future. It's beautifully and cleverly structured with a narrative that reveals our place within a much larger galactic context and pecking order through the thoughts and eyes of an orphan outsider. The ultimate underdog story this offers more that the usual Western-centric sci-fi perspective, the author imparts their creative powers and knowledge deftly and elegantly weaving in world history & religion, science & astronomy, A K Stones foresees environmental changes, beyond catastrophes and technological advances that all feel possible, probable & plausible plus it's jam packed with action, Faster Than Light Travel (F.T.L.T) gargantuan space ships and cities and an enemy that will make humans, aliens and AIs quake!! Read this! This needs to be on the screen!! Christopher Nolan..Ridley Scott..J J Abrams get your mince pies on this..

Well worth a read.

+ Good characters (including the AI)
+ Interesting plot
+ Hard sci-fi (ish) without being technical

- Some minor typos (sadly didn't keep track of them - but not too off putting)
- Pacing is a little awkward in places (e.g. Part 2)
- Atmosphere a little too human in places

Gripping from the start, held sufficient suspense to keep your attention whilst also giving crumbs of background throughout so as to understand the history of the characters. Looking forward to a sequel....

Very enjoyable, a real page turner that mercifully doesn't have annoying plot holes. And the science is science and engineering not convenient magic.

I've nearly finished this book. I'm quite hard to pleas with books and rarely write reviews, but this has held my attention from the start, and I'm really enjoying it. I will definitely read more by this author

Enjoyed this book. I am sixty years old and it reminded me of science fiction books when I was much younger

I liked the human aspects, super technology but still human or human like. A complete story instead of starting a trilogy
