AI killing machines destroyed his family - how can Ben trust an alien AI to save humanity?
Ben has just completed a hard day’s work blowing up psychotic killing machines, when he’s acclaimed a hero and sent off to Ceres, an icy planetoid orbiting beyond Mars. He sees this as a promotion - his boss sees this as a way of getting him killed. Once he gets to Ceres he discovers his imminent demise is the least of his problems.
Invincible aliens are on their way from the far side of the Galaxy to eradicate all human life. And the only faint hope for the survival of the human race is a very special young woman, a human/AI hybrid who his bosses also want to destroy. The AI is of alien origin, and gives her “magical” powers. This helps her to fool and outwit the people trying to kill her. Ben would rather just shoot them.
He’s also skeptical about the mysterious Alien AI. Humanity’s own experiments with advanced AI led to the rise of the crazed warmechs that destroyed his family. But as it turns out, nothing is quite what it seems, and everyone has a hidden agenda.
Praise for Quantum Whispers
Loved it! An excellent tale of human survival set against the backdrop of psychotic, AI driven war machines, and alien intelligences . . .
The most intriguing part of this book is the fact that it is thoroughly unpredictable . . . it offers more than a dash of mystery. At whatever point you think you're beginning to get a handle on the story something comes along and sends you down a whole different road. This infinite unfolding of plot lines always leaves you guessing and keeps you turning pages until the very last page.
The pacing is really fast and it will take some getting used to as you race from one danger to another with almost no breaks . . .
The human angle isn't lost despite the fact that there are other sentient intelligent beings and their technologies around.
