I would not really recommend this book to younger readers, it is quite adult in many respects and although not adult in explicit content, it might be a bit over some peoples heads!
I loved the dialogue, the author is particularly good at writing credible, interesting interaction. At no point did I think it was cliched or stock sci-fi fayre. The characters are good and stack up well and I enjoyed the mystery surrounding 'The Mother' and Sarazen's relationship with her which kept you wondering.
Other reviewers mention Asimov when comparing this book to others but I would not say that Dark Phase was trying to replicate the master's work, they just both happen to be about artificial intelligence and a possible future of our society. The ideas are good and the plot comes together nicely without too much reliance on techy jargon, enough is left to the imagination.
All in all, this is one of the best books I have read from an indie author and easily beats many others I have that have gone through the standard publishing houses.
Missed out on a full 5 stars for a somewhat predictable antagonist, however did not detract from what was an excellent exploration of what it means to be human, a debate over moral principles, and whether or not what we are taught fixes our opinions for life. Give this a read, even if you are not a sci-fi fan
Well written, a credit to the author and well worth getting for just a dollar. To quote the classic Robocop - `I'd buy that for a dollar!'

Hmm, I wanted to really like this book. Quite original story, just no serious link for the reader and the main character.Published 14 months ago by Mr. L. W. Hadden
Sci- fi pushes the boundaries. It is the great intellectual leveller. Jon Davidson has what it takes to make me question this life we live. Greed. Power. Read morePublished on 19 July 2013 by David
Great book,( I read the paperback version ). The story made me want to turn to the next page and was an intriguing read to the end.Published on 5 Nov. 2012 by AndyandHelen1999
Engrossing tale that at first appears predictable but about a third of the way through becomes less so. Made the rest of the book a real page turner. Read morePublished on 28 Aug. 2012 by Michael_B
